Rich Logan is widely known and celebrated for his eclectic teaching style. You can expect to find sensitivity, strength, and complexity in what are often taken as seemingly basic postures. It’s these very poses that Rich encourages his students to immerse themselves in, exploring the nuances of a pose for extended periods of time and moving through other postures smoothly and with deliberate attention on placing the body in the pose as opposed to letting habitual patterns and gravity run the show. For Rich, a ‘mindful’ practice entails bringing us to the edge of experience and, at that edge, witness the moment unfold, so to realize that it is us who are the unfolding.

James is a lifelong musician in a near-literal sense. He started playing doumbek at three years old, and was performing traditional Arabic music alongside his family by five. He graduated to oud before picking up drums and guitar and diving headfirst into rock, blues and jam bands.
Today James is a virtuoso multi instrumentalist and composer, and a musical researcher. His original acoustic works are grounded in American folk, jazz, theater, and traditional Arabic music. When he plays he effortlessly connects to and transmits the divine state of flow that arises from the the ecstatic bliss that playing music can elicit.

Logan Richards found his deepest meditative states in the realm of sound… acoustic natural sound has influenced his approach to gentle repetition that influences deeper conscious states… he has played kirtan infused with blues and rock, trained in sanskrit chant, studied classical piano and jazz guitar over the last 30 years and infused a meditative sound with modern sensibility. Founding member of “Akoustikirtan” and support to several midwestern kirtan bands over the years, he brings 40 years of meditation experience to the moment… (www.richloganyoga.com)
