About Richard Holroyd

He originally got a yoga swing to practice inversions but found that it brought immense joy and presence to those using it and for years he had been trying to get his students to find joy and lightness and freedom in their yoga practice. Since then Richard been passionate about yoga swings and what they can do for his students.

In 2011, Richard founded “Aerial Yoga London” – the only dedicated Aerial studio at the time. After 6 years of teaching classes and workshops in London he moved to India for 9 months and in this time created a teacher training programme. He has now trained thousands of students through his classes and trainings and he considers it a great privilege to be able to teach a practice characterised by pleasure, lightness, spontaneity, presence and freedom of movement.
