Pittsburgh Fitness Council Founding Member Selected to Headline at Upcoming Fearless Warrior Yoga Conference

Richard Butler Serves as Event’s Bold+Brave He-Man Ambassador

Pittsburgh, PA (September 21, 2016) – Richard Butler, founding member of the Pittsburgh Fitness Council (PFC), a networking group of Pittsburgh-based health and wellness professionals, was selected as a featured speaker for the Fearless Warrior Yoga Conference, which will take place at Hotel Monaco-A Kimpton Hotel on Sunday, October 9.

In addition to speaking, Butler also serves as the event’s Bold+Brave He-Man Ambassador.

“Fearless Warrior is not only a great opportunity for me to share my passion for living a healthy, active lifestyle, but also to encourage men to attend the conference with me and perhaps seek out a way to incorporate a yoga practice into their lives,” Butler said. “I am hoping that my presence and role at this event will inspire men of all ages to realize the benefits of yoga.”

Butler will be presenting “From Fearful to Inspirational: How I Used Fear to Inspire Others” in the afternoon and speaking on how to use fear to make significant changes in our lives, which coincides with the event’s theme, Get Fearless Pittsburgh, and challenges the audience to explore – and ultimately calm — their fears by using yoga, meditation and storytelling.

“I will highlight how I use my own mental fears as fuel to keep myself moving toward the things I love most in life,” Butler said. “I will teach the audience how to transcend their biggest setbacks when they acknowledge that every bit of themselves matters. Beyond the mountains of fear is a beautiful world waiting for all of us. We can step out from behind the darkness of fear and feel the warmth of new opportunities and possibilities.”

The full-day conference will encourage attendees to examine what triggers fear and how to approach it mindfully to find clarity in all of life’s surprises. Attendees also will learn how to develop the tools that will help them to break down the walls of fear to find authenticity and move closer to their life’s deeper purpose.

“We are excited to open this safe container of fear exploration in October and are really ecstatic to have Richard and PFC assist in drawing in more men,” said Hayley Beth Worthman, founder and conference director. “The energies that both women and men bring are distinctly different and have different effects, so having a strong male demographic can shift some of the female energy into a nice balance.”

There are several conference packages available for purchase. For more information, or to buy tickets, visit www.Fearless-Warrior.com. #GetFearlessPittsburgh

Technical vs Flowy MTB Tracks

My first two years on 2 wheels had me glued to Rails to Trails.  Did you know that Pennsylvania has more trails than any other state in the U.S.?  While I was far from having ridden them all, the pastor of a local church invited me to try the single…

What Is "Single Track" Anyway?

Monday, 22 August 2016 11:50 AM Written by
Sometimes the best way to understand what something is, is to first understand what it is not.  Single track is not rails to trails or crushed stone trails like you see around the city.  It is also not dirt or gravel back roads; more often referred to as double track. …
