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.
As a Classical Five-Element Acupuncturist, Gareth practices this ancient form of Eastern medicine to restore balance and harmony within the system by focusing on the root cause of any physical, psychological and emotional discord. Once the root cause of imbalance has been treated, the flow and quality of energy will be positively affected, eliminating symptoms and resulting in overall health, vitality and presence.
As well as being an acupuncturist, Gareth is a Zen meditation & mindfulness teacher and runs weekly classes across London. This, combined with over a decade of experience working within the health, fitness and wellbeing industry, provides a unique holistic approach.
Gareth has several areas of particular interest, including:
• Anxiety, stress and emotional and psychological wellbeing
• Digestive disorders/ IBS
• Conception, infertility and IVF support
• Menstrual disorders
• Spiritual growth and connection

Growing up in leafy Surrey I first discovered yoga at a small local class in my late teens and my love and passion for my practice has grown from there. After graduating from University I moved to London and began to attend regular classes whilst developing my own home practice. Leading a hectic London life and working long hours my yoga practice became my sanctuary helping me to achieve calm and balance in my day to day routine.
I studied for my 200 hour teaching training course with Heather Elton in 2014 and have since gone on to complete a further 200 hour training with The Yoga People in Bali, deepening my studies in yin yoga and yoga.
My intention is to create a safe space in my classes to allow you to relax, rejuvenate and take time out for yourself.
Many of us live active, yang-orientated lives with lots of external stimulation, long work hours and trying to get everywhere faster and quicker. We can run the risk of burning ourselves out. It is important that we balance our lifestyles with some more yin activities. Meditation, yin yoga and yoga Nidra are a great place to start.
I currently teach group classes and private lessons in London and I also teach on retreats in the UK and abroad.

Megan has been running gardening clubs with children from the ages of 2 to 11 for the last 5 years. She currently works on a freelance basis running Primary School Gardening Clubs in Ealing and Southall, outdoor sessions for a Nursery and is working with a group of Year 7/8 on a larger gardening project at Acton High School.
She loves working with people in the garden and seeing the enthusiasm and joy it brings along with all the other positive benefits. Unfortunately living in a city not everyone has access to a garden and in England we don’t have all year around sun so she believes that bringing a slice of nature indoors means you can still enjoy many of the positive benefits.
In September she will be starting a MSc in Social and Therapeutic Horticultural.
