Joy’s Barefoot Dance

I am inspired to start Barefoot Dance sessions on Friday afternoons. It will be a freestyle class with a circle to start, where we set our intent for the dance, and with a variety of music. Each session will include warm up, aerobic section and cool down. My intent is to honour the body and spirit by dancing mindfully.

From my time as a Nia dance teacher, I know that bodies like to move; they are designed to move. Recently I have missed the range of movement that I gained from nearly ten years of teaching dance. I also know that when we move mindfully, our minds become focused and peaceful.

The very first Nia class that I attended, took me back to being a child at music and movement class. I felt the childlike joy of moving freely and allowing my imagination to join me to create shapes, and to play with the space around me. I hope to create that joy for you with these sessions. They will be informal and relaxed. You will be invited to move in your own way and pay attention to your body’s signals to make it a safe way to exercise.

Mindful Movement with Natalie Snuggs

Wednesday mornings, 10am – 11:15 am, in the upstairs studio, beginning January 12th 2022.

These classes are perfect for anyone wishing to practice mindfulness with alternatives to sitting meditations. Comprising breathwork with gentle movements based on Shibashi, a meditative form of Qigong, and specifically designed for this class, we release tension in the body and clear the mind.

This evidence-based form of exercise improves physical and emotional well-being and is suitable for anyone as the movements can be performed standing or sitting and are designed to accommodate all levels of physical ability. Each class will end with a deep relaxation exercise.

Yoga with Alison Jennings – Yogastarr

A contemporary approach to traditional yoga, this class offers you a chance to strengthen the body, develop breath awareness and settle the mind.

With over 20 years of teaching practice Alison will encourage you to embrace the awareness and recognise the shifts, however large or small. Her style is eclectic, and her teaching ethos is inclusive. She pays attention to the sustainability of yoga practice, teaching with humour, warmth, and compassion. Initially trained with the British Wheel of Yoga Alison has continued years of study exploring both the practical and philosophical applications of Yoga.

Whether experienced or a complete newbie to yoga there is a shift in perspective which happens post practice for everyone. Often tiny, occasionally huge, but always there in the background amongst the downward dogs, warriors and savasanas. Yogastarr classes are designed to inspire personal growth and transformation and are often themed with poetry, music, or intention setting. Through asana (movement), pranayama (breathwork), relaxation and meditation techniques each class will provide the opportunity to develop self-awareness physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Yoga with Michelle Oliver – Barefoot Yogini

My teaching was born out of my love for yoga and the beautiful and profound personal journey I found myself on. I simply wanted to keep learning and keep sharing the knowledge with as many people as I could. I enjoy teaching people of all ages and abilities as much as I love the challenges that I continue to discover in my own personal practice. It is my hope that through my classes people will also experience the deep joy, serenity and healing that yoga has offered for me.

I trained at the British School of Yoga in 2009 and have been teaching yoga for over 10 years. I travelled to India in November 2014 where I spent a month at the Sivananda Ashram Neyyar Dam, Kerala where I studied Traditional Hatha Yoga and qualified as a Sivananda Teacher. I was honoured to be awarded with the title Yoga Siromani which signifies jewel of the crown of yoga. My teaching also draws upon my experience practicing and studying other styles of Yoga; Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Vinyasa, Kundlini, Dru and Yin.

Like many spiritual practices, yoga is what you make it. You can dedicate yourself to a certain school of yoga and stick with that which I did for many years. Now I am more of an explorer. The world is far too big and diverse to stick with just one way of doing things. I prefer to explore what feeds my body, mind, and spirit, resulting in a holistic approach to yoga!

I draw inspiration for my classes from nature and the seasons. I enjoy exploring how we can adapt our lifestyle and yoga practice in harmony with the rhythm of nature. I also like to connect with my Celtic roots creating themes and weaving in poems and stories from the Celtic world.

What to expect in class

I ensure my yoga classes are accessible for every body! And every body is welcome! My classes are slow paced to create a moving meditation that helps encourage proper breathing, flexibility, strength, and vitality in the body while calming the mind.

A typical class includes pranayama (breathing exercises), warm-ups including adapted and accessible Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), Asanas (postures) and deep relaxation.

When practiced regularly, the yoga postures, relaxation and breathing can help us to improve strength, balance, and flexibility as well as general health, well-being, and peace of mind.

When it comes right down to it, yoga is good for you!

Yoga with Leanne – Mesen Yoga

I have been practicing Yoga for most of my adult life, however in 2016 I decided to delve further into this ancient practice. After completing a year’s foundation course and having a break from studying, whilst having and enjoying the first year of my daughter’s life, I then continued with my studies and completed a 13 month Yoga teacher training programme.

Both of my courses were completed in the Om Studio, Cardiff under the guidance of my teacher Yogacharini Kalavathi Devi, a senior teacher from the Gitananda Yoga Parampara (lineage). This tradition of yoga that I teach is a system of Yoga in which the practises work on the eight limbs of Yoga, encompassing all aspects of the self in a step-by-step manner allowing everyone to be included no matter their starting point.

My classes are Hatha based sessions, that work with balancing energy through a series of Jattis (body warm ups), Asanas (physical postures), Kriyas (rhythmic movements with breath), Pranayamas (breathing practices) and Relaxation.

Red Tent – with Daisy

Namaste Sisters, this is a new Red Tent starting September 2021 at Health Conscious, Llantwit Major

My intention here is to create a space for women to come together, without judgement, to share, feel supported and just ‘be’.

Each month will be a different topic, ranging from Astrology and Chakras, through to Moon Cycles and Meditation. This will be weaved with spiritually, but more with an emphasis on individuation and honouring our core beings.

A space to celebrate with the ebbs, flows and all the beautiful inconsistencies that come with being a woman, to connect joyfully with our innate feminine wisdom.

We will gather roughly once per month around the Dark Moon. Reflecting on our cycle, setting intentions for ourselves, sharing wisdoms, and learning from the nature and seasonal cycles we find ourselves in.

We will meditate, chant, laugh, cry, eat, create… and honour all which comes up for us.

It is hoped this will be a community space where we all contribute/ share/ lead. Everyone has talents, ideas, skills and you are so welcome to share yours.

The Red Tent is a place for ALL WOMEN:

From girls who started menstruating, to women beyond menopause. It is a place for women who cycle or not, who have a womb or not.

Welcome to the circle sister xx

Hi there, I am Daisy, I have been on my own healing and spiritual journey for the last 5 years or so, and as with life, the journey this has not been without its many ebbs, flows and transformations. I now find myself on a clear path, filled with love and gratitude, and yearning to share my learnings, and hear other teachings.

I am a Reiki level 2 practitioner with an additional Animal Reiki qualification. I am qualified in Canine Holistic Health and am currently undergoing learning for Animal Aromatherapy and Flower Remedies.

I have lived in Llantwit for around 7 years, with my partner Darren. We are the happiest when enjoying beach and country walks with our trusty Bloodhound Ralph.
