About Richard Timu


Richard came to yoga after a stroke at the tender age of 34 with the side effects of Aphasia which is a language disorder including difficulties with reading, writing, speaking and unable to understand speech. Yoga helped him to settle down his confused mind and recover lost communication skills. He deepened his yoga teacher training through Mandala, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga, Nidra (Sleep) Yoga, Meditation and Broga then changed his career from a stressed city banker to a robust blissed yoga teacher. He now uses his first hand experience of transformation to assist his yoga students.
