Richard Van Schaik


Richard started practising yoga in 2003. For the first few years, he was an avid practitioner of BIkram yoga. During a yoga retreat at Samahita in Thailand in 2014, Richard came into contact with Asthanga yoga and from then on this became his regular practice.
In his daily life, Richard is a partner at an international law firm. The yoga mat is therefore the ideal place for him to unwind and come back to himself. Sharing the added value of yoga and the breath for people who have busy and hectic jobs was one of the reasons Richard co-founded Yoga Circle.
Paul Dallaghan, Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor, Eddie Stern and Ingrid Notten are teachers Richard follows and who continue to inspire him.
