Richie’s BikePGH handle is rgyoga, I believe.

Also there’s a standing offer that if you beat him in a pose off, you get his record collection and his cache of southern tier pumpking – I’ve heard…

In theory, one can register online via Schoolhouse Yoga’s site, but I don’t see Richard’s workshop listed.

Thank you Lolly for posting! I’m looking forward to teaching this.

I’ve spoken with Leta (Schoolhouse Yoga owner), and she will have the online registration ready to go on Monday. I believe you’ll just need to put your Bike-Pgh ID in the “comments” portion.

If anybody has questions e-mail me: richard (at) rgyoga.com

SLOAPS! *shakes fist*

If I can give a testimonial here. I started Richard’s Saturday Yin class about a year ago. (Along with a few more traditional classes here and there…)

Its made a world of difference in my riding. (And in my life in general. I’m now no longer as flexible as a 2×4… it’s more like a 1×3 these days. :) )

Also, I have to say Richard is very good at dealing with those of us who are flexibility challenged and/or new to yoga.

If you’re on the fence about giving it a try, he’d be a good teacher to start with.

sloaps – I thought you were accusing Richard of having a cashe of southern tier pumpkins, and visions of pies and soups were dancing through my head. I should go get dinner.

edited to add – And though I know it’s unrelated, when people say “Schoolhouse” I think “Wightman School” with that giant gym on the 4th floor that is the most fabulous space in the world unless it’s August.

edited to add again – and this looks very cool, thank you Richard!

If I’m not scheduled to work, I will be there. Crossing my fingers; I could stand to be a lot more flexible.

Wow autocorrect decide that “root” should have been “route”. Awesome.
