Richard and Mary will be here in February, and they’ve agreed to teach for seven whole days—a weekend workshop (15 to 17 February) and a five-day immersion (18 to 22)!

These are opportunities not to be missed, especially since The Romulo Peace Center is subsidizing tuition in order to defray the extra expense resulting from recent currency fluctuations.

Beginners are welcome, and need not be afraid! You’ll find full, detailed descriptions (and daily schedules) of the courses below. Just click on the buttons, keeping in mind that the Essentials immersion, 18 to 22 February, which is hotly anticipated every year in the United States, is a must-do course for serious students of (any kind of) yoga.

Richard Freeman is keenly interested in various yoga traditions. He studied directly with Iyengar for many years before discovering Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. Pattabhis Jois eventually became his principal teacher. He has also studied Sufism in Iran, Buddhism, Zen, and Bhakti yoga. As an avid student of both Western and Eastern philosophy, as well as Sanskrit, we can expect that Richard will thread philosophy throughout all the sessions.

Mary Taylor’s wisdom is heart-centered and fully embodied. She is especially skilled at bringing the theoretical down to earth, making it all seem practical and relatable. Like Richard, she continues to study and practice yoga and Buddhist teachings, with an eye on how the residue that is produced on the mat (and cushion) informs all aspects of everyday life.
