About Gyandev (Rich) McCord and Lisa Powers
Gyandev (Rich) McCord is the Director of Ananda YogaÑ¢ worldwide, and the Director of The Expanding Light Yoga & Meditation Retreat where thousands of yoga students and teachers have been trained. He is also co-author of Yoga Therapy for Overcoming Insomnia, and Yoga Therapy for Headache Relief.

Gyandev has served on the Board of Directors of the Yoga Alliance, the group of yoga schools and traditions which has recently developed comprehensive standards for yoga teachers in the United States. He is also an accomplished storyteller, focusing on epic dramas from mystic traditions.
Gyandev's philosophy about yoga practice is that, "It should give valuable benefits on many levels - physical, mental, emotional - and that its highest purpose is to tune practitioners into their own body's subtle energy flows. This allows a practitioner to experience the full spiritual dimension of each posture, thus expanding the benefits of yoga beyond the body, into the mind and soul."
Lisa Powers is a certified Ananda Yoga Teacher and has taught yoga, meditation, and chanting seminars for over 18 years to professional organizations and private groups. She is also a teacher for the Ananda Yoga Teacher Training Program at the Expanding Light Yoga and Meditation Retreat.

With her husband she has run an international antiquities business of Roman Period to 18th Century objects; specializing in Renaissance Era arms and armor as art, and scientific instruments.
Lisa was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 and is today completely free of cancer. She states that, "Yoga has helped me to heal very deeply - I realized that I was afraid of dying and afraid of treatment. When I accepted that there were things I couldn't control, I relaxed and was better able to accept my present situation. I began swimming with the current, not against it. At this point a deep peace flooded my being and I was no longer afraid. This was the turning point that opened the door for other solutions to come. Looking back I recognized that the philosophy and practice of yoga was deeply ingrained within me and was a sustaining force."
