Richard Hammer has been teaching yoga for 12 years, holds certifications in Sampoorna Hatha Yoga and KripaluYoga, and is registered with Yoga Alliance at the highest level of
E-RYT500. Additional certification trainings have been in Pranakriya Yoga, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Yin Yoga and three styles of yoga nidra. His style is blended, and honors both the roots of classical yoga and the more current tantra yoga, with an emphasis on pranayam, as well as the influence of Qi Gong. He believes that the depth and richness of yoga is available to each student of yoga and lies in the active mindful practice of all the Eight Limbs of yoga, and not just asana. The sacred and authentic being in each of us can be accessed through yoga regardless of age or current condition and circumstances.
