Richard (BWY diploma) was born and grew up in Birmingham UK, and has been teaching with Yoganu since 2007. He is recognised by Yoga Alliance as a Senior Yoga Teacher.
He completed his British Wheel of Yoga Diploma in 2008, and has since completed a 2-year diploma in Yoga Therapy, studied intensively the soft architecture of the body, known as fascia and has completed a 3 year course in Shamanic Practices. He continues his study of the mind, body and spirit through yoga, intuitive movement and shamanic journeying.
“My first encounter with naked yoga was in summer 2005 at a HNY workshop in London. I later went on, to join Aaron Star at the Costa Rica retreat, which opened up the start of a very exciting journey. I signed up for teacher training with Aaron and have assisted and taught with HNY on retreats and workshops worldwide. My experiences with these practices enabled me to discover an inner happiness and peace I had not known before. This is why I decided to share with others the gift of yoga and began teaching at yoganu.”
Richard’s classes are fun and creative, and cater for all individuals needs, regardless of experience or ability. He is brilliant at explaining some of the most complex philosophies in a simple and understandable way. His playful curiosity towards yoga and his personal fascination with the workings of the human body (anatomy) and consciousness (quantum science) go hand in hand with the ancient teachings and philosophies of Tantra.

Andrew began practicing Yoga in 2008 and was soon lucky to experience something of the true power of Yoga and it’s amazing benefits. Ever since he has devoted himself to the practice and has seen it enhance every aspect of life. Andrew’s journey in Yoga has very much followed a Tantric path, rooted in an awareness of the universal connection between us all. It is a journey of continuing exploration and expansion.
“Yoganu has been key to my journey from the first time I came to class many years ago. Through weekly classes, workshops and retreats, I have learnt more than I can put into words and enjoyed countless beautiful moments. It was my experiences at Yoganu which inspired me to become a Yoga teacher and with the support and mentorship of my fellow teacher Richard, I completed my long and intensive training. So I am extremely pleased to be able to have the opportunity to share some of these beautiful experiences with my fellow men. For me Yoga is a practice which reaches beyond the mat and enables us to embrace life fully. I take great pleasure in sharing the practice of Yoga and all the incredible benefits it brings.”

Andy has taught mindfulness for 4 years and practiced yoga asana for 10. It was on his mat in a class a few years ago, that he realised what yoga had come to mean to him and that he had to share its treasures with others.
“Some of my most peaceful, blissed out, loving and empowered moments have arisen on the mat. For me it is the path towards true and total freedom, the path home, the path on which I learn, serve and love.”
He has journeyed through various styles including vinyasa, anusara, dru, vini, kundalini and kriya yog and folds their elements into his practice and teaching along with his experience in shiatsu and meditation.
His time on the mat at Yoganu has created some of those most powerful, transformative moments. “For me, a class at Yoganu is always exhilarating, empowering and joyful. Postures are more accessible in that wonderful space as I seem less held back by the doubting mind.” He is passionate about helping his students to connect deeply into their lifeforce, honour and celebrate their bodies and dwell in peace in their minds and hearts.
Andy teaches a busy class schedule and runs a shiatsu clinic near Colchester in Essex.
