Gareth became a fully licensed Acupuncturist (Lic.Ac) after apprenticing under highly regarded acupuncturist, Gerad Kite, in the Worsley style of Classical Five-Element Acupuncture. Since graduating, Gareth has been working in private practice in central and west London.

Phil was first drawn to yoga in 2005, looking for a way to relieve the stresses of a corporate job. This ignited a spark in him and he has since travelled through India, Thailand and Bali training in a number of yoga traditions and teaching on worldwide retreats. Phil believes in the power of yoga to bring harmony through balancing a strengthening ‘Yang’ practise with a quieter, more introspective ‘Yin’ practise.
Yin Yoga has soared in popularity in recent years as it provides a soothing antidote to modern city life. Phil is passionate about helping others to experience the magic by guiding them in the art of finding stillness in longer holds. This works to release layers of tension physically from our connective tissues and, also, from our mind.
Phil is a big advocate of making yoga accessible to everyone and aims to deliver playful classes that offer a safe space for exploration and fun.
He also specialises in creating personalised 1:1 sessions that blend his experience in a range of movement techniques to help enhance how you feel in body and mind. These sessions are especially beneficial for those participating in running, cycling, sports or those looking to strengthen gently after injury.
