Richard Bird began his study and practice of Yoga, Meditation and Energy Healing in 1987.  

In 1999 after having knee pain and injuries from spending too much time in meditation and his own mis-application of classical Yoga postures he returned to one of his original teachers (Ana Forrest) and train in her style of “Yoga As A Healing Practice”.  

After the second day of training his knees were healed - once again stable, strong and pain free.
