rich_logan_headshot6Rich Logan is widely known and celebrated for his eclectic teaching style. You can expect to find sensitivity, strength, and complexity in what are often taken as seemingly basic postures. It’s these very poses that Rich encourages his students to become immersed in, exploring the nuances of a pose for extended periods of time and moving through variations smoothly and with deliberate attention on placing the body in the pose as opposed to letting habitual patterns and gravity run the show.  For Rich, a ‘mindful’ practice entails bringing us to the edge of experience and, at that edge, witness the moment unfold, so to realize that it is the yogi who is unfolding.

Rich’s current schedule in Chicago:

Mondays: 12:00-2:00 pm

Tuesdays: 6:00pm-8:00pm 

Wednesdays: 12:00-2:00pm

Fridays: 12:00-2:00pm

Sundays:   7:00-9:00pm Candle light flow

There are currently spots open for my ongoing teacher training program (September – March, 2015). Don’t hesitate to call or e-mail me at logonrich@yahoo.com if you’re interested in class info or experiential trainings/workshops.

A word from Rich on what to expect in his class:

“I teach as best I can to the level of the student. We hold poses longer than most average classes. I tend to focus on standing poses in my level 1-2 classes. My level 2-3 class is more oriented to movement and getting into some challenging advanced work. All og my classes incorporate some theme, whether Spiritual, Mental, or Physical. I encourage students to do their own deeper work, i.e. emotional or energetic. In the end I want you to find out what works best for you, but be open to the suggestions that come your way.”
