yapo-teacher-seniorSometimes described as ‘The Real Deal”  by students
, Richard teaches in a way that is fun and creative, and caters for all individuals needs, regardless of experience or ability. He is brilliant at explaining anatomy and alignment, and even some of the most complex philosophies in a simple and understandable way.  Here might give you further insight as to why:


Richard George has been teaching yoga since 2006, and has trained with many different schools and styles. He has studied along side many inspirational teachers such as Tias Little, Doug Keller, Donna Farhi, Aadil Palkhivala, Rolf Solvik and many others.

He completed his British Wheel of Yoga Diploma in 2008, and has since completed a 2-year diploma in Yoga Therapy, and studied intensively the soft architecture of the body, known as fascia.  He continues his study of the mind, body and spirit through intuitive movement, somatics and shamanism; recently completing a 3 year certified course in Shamanic practices.

Richard has taught in top yoga studios both in London and Birmingham, and has led multiple retreats and workshops both in the UK and Internationally. Recognised by Yoga Alliance Professionals as a Senior Yoga Teacher, Richard facilitates a UK 250 hour certified Teacher Trainer Course in conjunction with Yoga Sweat Birmingham.



With an eclectic background in Fine Art and Music, working in both sectors for many years of his life, Richard brings a unique creative perspective with his approach to yoga, helping students relate deeply to the body using creativity, expression and rule breaking. He is definitely a teacher for those who want to think outside of the box, and have an intelligent relationship and awareness to the body that they actually inhabit.

When he’s not whizzing around teaching yoga, he can usually be found out in nature walking his two adorable Labradoodles, pottering in the garden or with his head in the latest anatomy book.  It has been known that he also tends to over indulge occasionally on chocolate too… cough cough..  I mean goji berries and spirulina!
