Richard Henchman first tasted meditation when he arrived in the UK to do a PhD in chemistry. At that point, the seemingly external world dominated his perspective. Ten years of asana yoga and a quest to understand raja yoga slowly inclined his mind to meditation. His readiness for the appropriate technique was met by meeting Dr Kumar who showed it to him. After several years of practice, increasing awareness and calm have led to greater clarity, affecting every aspect of his life. His initial teaching of chemistry now extends to yoga and meditation.
All Traditional Yoga weekend courses are led by experienced teachers who have undergone extensive training and choose to teach on a voluntary basis. Seva, translated as selfless service is an important principle in the yoga tradition. Their support enables the charity to offer courses at a low cost and to bring the benefits of meditation to as many people as possible.
