About Angus

For over 20 years, Angus has practiced in the field of yoga, mindfulness and spirituality; teaching spiritual truths in an engaging and accessible way.

Experienced in many disciplines, he is at heart a keeper of humanity’s greatest open secret; that we can awaken to our true Self at any time – and through the journey of awareness, we can find lasting peace.

Angus’ journey of awakening began in his late 20’s. After working for almost a decade at a top magazine in London, he was burnt out, miserable and without direction. Feeling unable to continue in Corporate life, he left from his job, his home and his relationship – with no plan.

It was then that he came into contact with his two primary teachers Eckhart Tolle (Power of Now) and Ajahn Sumedho (Abbott of Amaravati Buddhist Monastery) and his life was never the same again.

In 1999, he began teaching yoga and meditation in UK prisons and later went on to establish Battersea Yoga, one of London’s most renowned studios – with a community of over 40,000 students over 20 years.

Having moved on from ‘Yoga Studio’ life, Angus now dedicates his life to the teaching and embodying of awareness. He does this through The Awaken Club, Mindfulness Teacher Training and Events & Retreats. He also runs a thriving private therapy practice, offering one-to-one sessions in London or online.

His Awaken Podcast has received critical acclaim for its private, intimate conversations on the nature of Awakening. Angus’ guests are highly experienced specialists in their field; of spirituality, sexuality and mental wellbeing. What follows are very real, honest and moving conversations about the messy business of being a human being. Expect candour, truth, humour and revelation.

Angus is a father of four – and enjoys family life on the river in South West London, UK. There is no dog yet, but his daughter tells him this situation is in need of urgent review.
