About the author

Richard Holroyd

Richard is the founder of Aerial Yoga London – the UK's first aerial-yoga dedicated studio. His yoga background is part asana training – Ashtanga and Sivananda styles. Richard combines his yoga postures with the mindfulness and meditation skills he picked up living for 6 years in a variety of spiritual communities including Tibetan, Theravaden and Indian ashrams. His aim is to develop aerial yoga – in collaboration with many others – into something that has an equal emphasis on the physical and mental elements of yoga practice; to play a part in building networks and communities that are inspired to use yoga as the fuel for their social action. Richard lives in London and enjoys good cheese and high-quality chocolate (not at the same time though!) Twitter Facebook
