His original offering Chill 101, focuses on the stretch and alignment in a non-competitive environment. He also teaches Vinyasa Flow Core 201 and Acro, Aerial, Partner Yoga +Thai Bodywork. Richard has been practicing yoga off and on for years with his wife, Lisa. He is the co-owner of Yoga 4 Love. Rich began practicing yoga for “brownie points’ with his wife, Lisa.

In 2011, he made the change from intermittent yoga practitioner to Yoga Teacher and took his practice to another level.  By deepening his personal practice on the mat he developed a growing desire to share the benefits of his transformation with others through teaching yoga.

He currently is owner and founder of TheFishPhysician, aquarium maintenance, design and installation. When he is not designing and maintaining aquariums for people you will find him on his yoga mat, practicing Hot Power Yoga. He began to see a need at his wife’s studio, Yoga 4 Love, to begin a series for all levels, so he got his yoga teaching training and jumped on board. He began his series called Chill Yoga 101 in March 2011, just three months after the studio opened. His teaching style is fundamental and very descriptive.

He enjoys people, loves his personal yoga practice, his dogs and his chickens, too. Rich is the husband of Lisa Ware, and co owner of Yoga 4 Love. They have two wonderful kids and have been married since 1992.

He loves to enrich others lives sharing the physical changes he has seen in his own body, and more significantly, the mind/ body /spirit connection of a healthy and strong yoga practice.

Come to one of Rich’s 201 or 301 classes, you will find yourself immersed in breath and flow, while gaining core strength and mastering inversions.

The Yoga 4 Love Story

Lisa was attuned to the Japanese Reiki lineage of healing Energy in 2000, along with her mother, as an alternate healing therapy for coping with chemo and radiation from her mom’s breast cancer. Lisa supported her mother, and witnessed her mom deal with surgeries, chemo, radiation and pain, always bouncing back with a smile on her face and a contagious, positive attitude. Her mother brought inspiration to thousands of Susan G. Komen attendees at the Fort Worth Race for The Cure. Lorene Farrell was a survivor, and was honored to present her story and enthusiasm for life to the crowds of women in pink and their supporters. She walked, spoke and inspired for many years, getting teams of thousands of participants together from American Airlines, where she worked, and placing 2nd or 3rd in the entire corporate team division every year. She even went to Washington, DC meet George W. Bush with the Komen Foundation president!

Lisa was inspired by her mother’s positivity and was led to teach people how to be well and hold a space for personal growth, yoga and healing. Through this life changing experience, Lisa became vividly aware that teaching yoga is her higher calling. The rocky journey of battling metastatic breast cancer with her mother then esophageal cancer with her dad began her own dynamic path of a passion for bringing healing and wellness to her community and ultimately for the greater good of the planet.

The Yoga 4 Love studio was named after Lisa’s mother, inspired by eight years of experiencing her frequent recurrences with cancer. A few short months later, after receiving her mother’s blessing on her business and after a long 8 years of being the greatest fighter she ever knew, her mother crossed over from the physical plane on May 7, 2008. Her father continued to be a strong force in her life, until he passed and was buried on May 7, 2015, 7 years later to the date. She believes that both of her parents are now her angels and give her great strength and perseverance.

Lisa has a charismatic and dynamic passion of sharing her knowledge of yoga and with her students and continues to spread her global reach through inter-connectedness in the yoga and energy work community. Inspiring others in their own personal yoga practice is her greatest reward. She feels that her yoga teaching is much more than a physical practice, it is a Mind / Body/ Spirit based practice. Lisa is living in the daily flow of Spirit with abundance and in gratitude for the many blessings in her life.

Peace, Love + Light
