  Rosalind | Yoga Teacher   When Roz teaches it gives her a chance to share her passion for movement and embodied research. Roz's teaching is informed by her studies in experiential anatomy from the school of Body-Mind Centering as well as her personal practice in Shadow Yoga. Roz also draws from her work with Contact Improvisation and Authentic Movement. She has been developing a Bodywork and Movement Therapy practice, further informed by her studies in Process-Oriented Psychology. Roz is also a Shaw Method swimming instructor, a method based on the The Alexander Technique.  Roz came to North Wales because of her great love of nature and the wild outdoors. Being in the mountains of Snowdonia and surrounded by lakes and the sea is a totally immersive experience. The environment enables fresh open water swimming. This ancient glacial landscape offers a spiritual and elemental connection, resonating qualities of sensuality and strength that are essentially female.

  Ella | Outdoor Leader   Ella made the decision to get into the Outdoor Education sector, using her experience with children, her degree in psychology and life passion for all things outdoors. 8 years on and much more qualified, she's still enjoying having the sea, the mountains and the forest as an office.  In her free time Ella particularly enjoys surfing, climbing and yoga, amongst other creative and arty activities too.  North Wales is a beautiful place which is really best to experience it personally. Quite a few people visit seeking adventure, escape, relaxation, but some find its bewitching qualities too hard to resist, and find that they too begin to call it home.
