More About Rich
Rich’s yogic path was an integral part of his entire life, however it was not until his final year of high school that he realized it was ’yoga’. It was then that a very fascinating English teacher opened the windows to Eastern thought. With a growing interest, Rich expounded upon the principles of hatha yoga and discovered the treasures of sitting meditation in between a Bachelor’s Degree at Penn State. The path kept winding deeper and deeper. With the guidance and facilitation of a humble teacher, Gary Weber, Rich opened to the self-inquiry method popularized by an Indian sage who never left his home on a mountaintop, Ramana Maharshi. After college, Rich moved to the mountains of Asheville, NC where he met Joe Taft, a certified Anusara yoga instructor. Anusara quickly became Rich’s primary yoga method, solidifying the importance of proper biomechanics in a strong physical practice to heal the body. Rich delved into study with many of the organization’s top instructors and is now studying primarily under Anusara founder John Friend.
