My Method

My Method is set to revolutionise the way we workout. PT visits at home have long been popular, but it's something that has never quite made sense to me. The idea of trying to do laps of or jump squats across my scant one-bedroom flat just doesn't appeal. My Method offers on-demand yoga and Pilates at home and at your convenience.  A bit like the Uber of fitness their platform matches you with teachers based near you who can come and offer you a mat-based sweat session succinctly and conveniently. Their teachers are the best of the business, including the likes of Lucy Mills, one of London's most in-demand fitness professionals. Once you start, you'll never want to return to your sweaty gym. You can also do semi-private tuition or arrange a small group of friends to join, which proves the perfect way to wile away a Saturday.

Bone Setting at Akasha Holistic Wellbeing at Hotel Café Royal


Akasha Holistic Wellbeing at Hotel Café Royal is now the UK's first and only spa offering holistic Bone Setting, by Tai Chi masters father and son duo Andy and Duran Mack. While bone setting may sound like a Victorian torture, it's in fact an incredible restorative and healing treatment derived from ancient Chinese teachings and philosophies. With sessions rarely lasting more than 20 minutes, the purpose of  Bone Setting is to realign the physical body, as Andy and Duran create physical waves through the body to loosen and relieve blocked tension. Using both physical and energetic manipulation, the treatment helps dissolve stress, detox the mind and release tension in the body.
