Gentle Mindful Movement Classes -

 A restorative, balancing and contemplative movement class focussing on body sensation, breath, balance and an overall sense of well being set to beautiful, inspiring and calm music.
This is a group for women and men of all ages and abilities who would like to get in tune with their bodies in a gentle, mindful and holistic way. Our classes are perfect for those who want to fully engage with the senses and body movement in a simple, fresh and easeful way without high impact or aerobic output.
You will leave feeling refreshed, balanced and peaceful.
These classes are a real mood lifter and our group is warm, friendly, welcoming and inclusive.

"I look forward to sharing the joys of movement with you"

Stella brings a warm and friendly atmosphere to her classes and has over 20 years experience in the many fields of dance and somatic movement. 

Since training at the Bird College of Performing Arts, the Royal Northern Ballet school and graduating as a Blue Belt in the Nia Technique, she began immersing herself in Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Mindful Movement and Meditation and has synthesised these varied holistic practises with her love of dance and movement to create a truly unique, and uplifting experience suitable for all levels of health and ranges of abilities.

"It's never too late to explore how it feels to move your body in a gentle and healthful way and if you have never been to a movement based class before then we especially welcome you to one of our free taster sessions. Either at a calm, peaceful and restful 'Gentle Mindful Movement' session or if you are looking for more of a dance based exercise experience then join us at one of our Joy of Movement classes for women. 

Your journey to health and well being begins by taking the first step. I look forward to meeting you" ~ Stella

Joy of Movement combines simple, flowing and easy to follow dance and mindful movement for women of all ages, fitness levels and experience. We encourage a sensory-based holistic approach with a focus on body sensation and feeling good rather than cardio fitness, though we do get fit in the process. Enjoy a time of breathing, stretching and non-impact joyful movement to a variety of uplifting and inspiring music. Participants are guided to follow their own energy levels and all classes end with mindful breathing and a meditative reflection / relaxation time.
