The Shala London

Richard Knight

Fun, creative and physically challenging; Richard enjoys teaching both slow, anatomically precise flows and sweaty, fiery dynamic flow and yin and nidra. His approach is to make everyone feel welcome by offering diverse options, making people laugh and generally trying to make his classes down to earth.

Richard Knight

Dynamic Flow, Vinyasa, Rocket, Nidra and Yin Yoga Teacher

The practice of yoga is central to Richard’s life; he became a teacher so he could share with others all that the practice brought into his life.

Drawing on the various lineages of vinyasa yoga, Richard’s teaching combines the discipline of ashtanga vinyasa with the creativity of rocket. In contrast and complement to the dynamic classes, he leads meditations and teaches a mindful and restorative style of yin yoga. He also offers an accessible chair flow, adapted to suit people of all ages, bodies and abilities, consistent with his belief that yoga truly is for every body.

Focusing on the connection between mind and body, Richard’s classes interweave yoga philosophy with creative sequencing. He holds space in a playful and supportive manner so students feel safe to explore – and sometimes to fall! Expect to be challenged and inspired in both body and mind, and know that no visit to the mat is ever wasted.

In addition to studio classes, Richard offers regular workshops and several international retreats each year. He believes that retreats and workshops are spaces to cultivate the community that is central to his teaching and for his students to explore the practice more holistically.

Off the mat, Richard lives in south east London and is a celebrant, delivering bespoke and unforgettable weddings and funerals.
