Starting August 3, 2020, Richard Reggero (Rich) will lead an “All Levels Vinyasa” class twice a week. Classes will be held Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Rich has been a competitive athlete most of his life, and before finding yoga, his list of sports spanning the past 30 years include baseball, golf, swimming, football, hockey, running, triathlons, and basketball.
Rich turned to yoga in 2010 after suffering a series of knee injuries (due to the multiple sports he participated in.) Yoga gave him a perfect way to help his injuries. Rich initially used yoga to help rehabilitate his knee. He found that Baptiste-inspired yoga could be an athletic practice while being soothing at the same time. Over eight years of practice, he strengthened his body, mind, and spirit and wants to help others do the same.
Vinyasa Yoga is said to work at the physical, mental, and emotional levels, and helps to connect the mind to the body. Yoga movements are great exercise and helps to relieve anxiety and stress.
Rich completed his 200hr YTT training in December 2017 and attended an additional 35 hours of training in 2018 and 2019 specializing in the art of assisting and in bringing yoga to veterans and first responders. He is thrilled to be joining the Essential Health team!
Rich has been an Army officer, a schoolteacher, tutor, and a youth sports coach. He considers it his calling to lead and inspire others.
