Richard Rosen is the Director of the Piedmont Yoga Studio in Oakland, CA. He is a regular contributor to Yoga Journal and is the author of The Yoga of Breath, a beginner's guide to pranayama, and Yoga for 50, an instructional manual for older beginners. Our feature was recorded live at a teacher training workshop at Yoga Source in Richmond, VA where Richard shared with us some of the history of how yoga arrived in the west, as well as how it has changed from its original form. For additional recordings on some of the classical poses found in the ancient yoga text, the Gheranda Samhita, as well as an introductory pranayama practice, please visitRichard's iHanuman Teacher Page.
