With a classic Monongahela valley upbringing, unexpectedly, yoga found Paul Richards in 1999. In 2008 he completed his yoga teachers training, eventually getting registered as a children’s yoga teacher and a special needs yoga teacher. He has led classes with expectant mothers, kids, teens, adults and seniors; he has led classes at yoga studios, gyms, churches, parks, schools, and on a barge at Station Square. The common thread is the sharing a big smile with anyone who has joined him in his love of yoga, and people.
