what people are saying about Richard Clark


Thanks for a beautiful class again last night. I have to say, I have dappled in yoga for the last 5 or so years, and have never felt so connected to a yoga practice, it feels so honest. Very grateful for what you bring and teach.


I have really appreciated and benefitted from your guidance in establishing and nurturing my practice, such peace and tranquillity comes over me when I am in your class, I really do feel blessed.


I keep meaning to email you to tell you how much your classes mean to my life. I would be lost without your classes and can't imagine going anywhere else. I hope attendances pick up so our options can stay there, but if not I will certainly try to adapt my life to keep including your amazing yoga practice in my life. Again thank you, this particular student values you above most things in her daily life and I keep striving to learn and grow with the practice with everything else that takes up my time. Even though I don't get to practice every day, I think about it EVERY day.


I wanted to tell you in person how much your steady support, inspiration, and guidance has meant to me. Thank you for being my teacher. Your consistent and thorough approach has inspired and encouraged me to practice and discover the treasures of yoga. Not to mention to heal (in many different ways) from the most terrible injury of my life.


I feel we as students are extremely fortunate to have you as our teacher. Your devotion, patience and skill is a gift we receive every class. Sometimes for students understanding your talks is like learning a mantra. At first you can't distinguish sounds clearly, or you don't hear them at all or what you hear is actually different from what you first heard. It is amazing but after a while sounds change and become something else. Clarity comes and so too does appreciation.


I just wanted to say thanks for the yoga classes this year. There have been many times during the year when I have used the philosophy you have taught us to help myself deal with big and small situations.


Despite my less than perfectly consistent and completely dedicated practice, yoga has transformed me as a person, and I am better for it. I will continue to work with what my body allows me to do, and continue to albeit slowly absorb and adopt a yoga philosophy into my life....
