Richard has over 20yrs experience in wellness and is founder of Creative Wellness, specialising in 5 Elements Acupuncture, Dru Yoga, wellness coaching and the Body-Mind connection. He's passionate about understanding and creating what you need to have a successful life - measured from the deepest level of your own perception, not through achieving in the eyes of others.
He graduated the renowned College of Traditional Acupuncture and later developed his Creative Yoga brand into one of London's most exciting yoga projects, organising and teaching some of the capitals biggest and most unique events. These events included a strong emphasis on connection with events like singles & couples yoga which had in-built social elements - rare in the yoga world where people more often exit a class with barely a glance at those around them!
He has worked internationally, helping facilitate juice detox programmes at the world renowned Moinhos Velhos Juice retreat, contributing to it becoming rated amongst the top 10 detox retreats in the world by The Times newspaper! He also has a successful corporate branch to his business, designing and delivering wellness programmes and managing a team who attend businesses throughout London.
He emphasises the importance of life choices, occupations and relationships and how they relate to health, and believes that true achievement is balancing all elements of life, not just achieving in one area such as work, which is a common pattern.
Richard also draws on a wealth of other experience including extensive practice of 5 Rhythms Dance and other movement practices, Tai Chi, Meditation, Native American Style Dance and Ceremony, and various other forms of energy and bodywork. Richard has also previously managed an Organic Food Shop and spent time living in the Findhorn Foundation intentional community.
