  • Richard Gillette
    RYT 200

    Richard Gillette realized it’s never too late to address the body, mind and spirit when he started his yoga practice in 2002 at age 50. 


    He found his way into a Chair assisted Yoga class as a result of falling from his bike and harming his hip. The teacher and the diversity of the poses, combined with the enthusiasm of the students, kept him coming to that class consistently, well after his injury healed. 

    Richard has recently received certification from an eight month Teacher Training intensive with Sondra Loring at Sadhana Center for Yoga and Meditation in Hudson  E-RYT 200  and now teaches the Community Chair Yoga Class at Bodhi Holistic Spa that he was so enamored with.
