Richard Freeman

Richard Freeman, acclaimed Ashtanga Yoga teacher, spent nearly nine years in Asia studying various traditions, which he integrates into the Ashtanga Yoga practice taught by his principal teacher, K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. His broad background includes Zen and vipassana Buddhist practice, bhakti and traditional hatha yoga, Sufism, and in-depth study of Iyengar Yoga. He is an avid student of Western and Eastern philosophy, as well as Sanskrit. His ability to juxtapose various viewpoints, without losing the depth and integrity of each, has helped Richard develop a unique, metaphorical teaching style. He lives with his family in Boulder, Colorado, where he is the director of the Yoga Workshop.
