Testimonial from a particpant in one of Richards' previous workshops:

"I did not know what to expect from the heart monitor workshop with Richard.  I figured with my low blood pressure and simple, relaxed life style, that my heart wouldn't show much of a stress response.  Was I ever wrong!  Richard's explanation of the adrenals and how often they are taxed in daily living was a wake up call for me.  This workshop gave me the experience of why pranayama is vital to health and healing and why it should be practiced 24/7, not just on the mat for a few minutes a day.  His use of modern medicine and the heart monitor with the computer analysis, satisfied the scientist in me.   He proved without a doubt that when I'm thinking I'm as relaxed as I can possibly be, in reality my body is experiencing something much different.  I now have the wisdom and the tools to truly find that inner peace.  Thank you Richard!" - Anna, April 2014
