Bob has been studying and practicing the principles of Eastern philosophy, logic, meditation and sacred movement since 1982. He is an Essentials Staff Teacher at the Yoga Studies Institute. Bob continues to study with his Heart Teachers, Lindsay Crouse and Rick Blue, and with Geshe Michael Roach and Lama Marut.

Bob’s earliest teacher was his father, Ted, who began to teach him the core principles found in Buddhism, including the true nature of mind and the lack of a hardwired self. Bob continues to study the wisdom from the ancient texts of Tibet and India and is forever grateful to his closest teachers, Rick Blue, Lindsay Crouse, Lama Marut, Cindy Lee, Geshe Michael Roach, and his wife, Judith Ring, who are his highest spiritual guides.
