Richard Freeman has been a student of yoga since 1968. He has spent nearly twelve years in Asia studying various traditions, which he incorporates into the Ashtanga yoga practice as taught by his principal teacher, K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Richard's background includes studying Sufism in Iran, Zen and Vipassana Buddhist practice, Bhakti and traditional Hatha yoga in India. Starting in 1974 he also began an in-depth study of Iyengar yoga, which eventually led him to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. Richard is an avid student of both Western and Eastern philosophy, as well as Sanskrit. His ability to juxtapose various viewpoints, without losing the depth and integrity of each, has helped him develop a unique, metaphorical teaching style.
Richard teaches public classes, month and week-long intensives at his home base, the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, as well as spending a good part of each year traveling as a guest instructor at studios throughout the world. He is the author of the book, The Mirror of Yoga (Shambhala Publications), and has produced a number of instructional DVDs and CDs on yoga asana, philosophy, breathing and chanting.
