Richard is a Yoga and Movement facilitator and qualified paramedic practitioner (BSc Healthcare Practice) whose research, teaching and caring practices span 25 years. He is a teacher member of Yoga Alliance Professionals, a bodyworker specialising in Arun Conscious Touch; an artist, musician and gardener. He is passionate about consciousness, the body, its anatomy and ecology. His journey traverses the arts and sciences and ranges from dance training and performance, Butoh dance training in Japan, and BA Hons Fine Art Painting, to medicine working as a Paramedic Practitioner in the NHS. He has a special interest in Yoga Nidra, a practice that addresses the practitioner directly, and with scientific evidence, to the neurophysiology of consciousness. Through these practices, we can access various altered-states recordable as ‘brain waves’ that can, in turn illuminate and invite space for healing.
