Richard Garrison began teaching after having been involved in
a serious accident in 2007. Working safely
back to pre-accident levels of ability helped him cultivate an
appreciation and deeper understanding of proper technique to avoid and
work with injuries.
All students will be able to participate and contribute to classes in
meaningful ways. Rich has had extensive experience with various
modalities of yoga but sites his training in the Anusara style as
being the most beneficial to enhancing the experience of students.
Anusara was a hatha yoga system that emphasized alignment
and a “celebration of the heart.” The lessons learned here and those
from the Pranakriya style with Yoganad Michael Carrol are what he
draws upon most during classes. Participants should expect a mindful,
challenging and enjoyable atmosphere in which to practice. Though
alignment is emphasized the classes flow beautifully in a way that
builds on those proper foundations.
