Rick is a longtime resident of Mandeville and graduate of Mandeville High. "Yoga found me through my martial arts training. My teacher told me to stretch more so I tried a free yoga class and I've been hooked ever since. That one class led to a 21-day yoga challenge. That turned into an unlimited membership at a local yoga studio and that turned into an extensive in-depth 8 month teacher training program through Advanced Yoga Training at the Wild Lotus Yoga Studio in New Orleans. I am also a certified RYT-200 with the Yoga Alliance. I feel a deep responsibility to share what makes me feel better mentally, physically and spiritually with anyone who wants it. I would teach yoga for free but don't tell anybody at the front desk."
