You know those people that you meet and quickly realize that you have, 1. definitely met at some other point in your life but just can't quite put your finger on when, and/or 2. were certainly destined to meet at some point and time.  Margo Buchanan is one of those people for me.  It could have been the gaggle of mutual friends that connected us thanks to the wonderful world of social media or the instant connection we made over our passion for power yoga and all that it can teach those willing to become a student of it.  

I admire Margo's thirst as a yoga student and discipline as a teacher to remain a student of the style she loves so much.  If you haven't had the opportunity to flow with Margo yet at Humble Haven...what are you waiting for? Step in, she will meet you there! Keep reading to learn more about this amazing teacher we are happy to have be a part of this community.  

What is your favorite style of class to teach and why? 

Heated Power Yoga because the practice is challenging both physically and mentally and the heat is great added detox.

What made you want to go beyond just practicing yoga and start teaching? 

Just the very thought of being able to be part of someone else experiencing the type of journey I have had through practicing yoga gives me goosebumps. 

If you had to describe your teaching style in 3 words or less, what would you say? 

Don’t hold back.

What’s your favorite yoga pose? 

Wheel. I can always count on wheel to give me energy and heighten my mood.

What do you like to do around Richmond? 

I love that Richmond always has a new restaurant popping up. I can be easily be found at one of them.

What’s your favorite food? 


Tea or Coffee? 

Coffee (with a blueberry scone on the side )

Favorite quote? 

“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” - Charles R. Swindol

Why are you excited to teach at Humble Haven Yoga? 

More than anything, I am excited about being a part of a community in my neighborhood full of amazing people sharing relentlessly with each other. 

What’s your favorite song to practice to?

While I love music, I prefer practicing without. Listening to my breath and that of others during practice is a part of what makes this practice meditative and heightens my awareness to what is going on in my body and mind.

When can you practice with Margo? 

4:30PM Thursdays and 4PM Sundays
