What is slow living

& why is it essential in the modern world?

Despite what social media depicts,  slow living isn’t a secluded woodland cabin, hens roaming free or living off homegrown produce.  To slowly live is to experience what life looks and feels like with intention and thoughtfulness at the core, living and loving life in tune with our emotions, values and needs while moving away from the ideas of power, pressure and perfection.  Read here to find out about my journey to a slower lifestyle.

Beginner yoga classes

My yoga classes are available in Oswestry, Chirk and Glyn Ceiriog. Our yoga practice focuses on easing anxiety, aiding sleep and improving mobility.  They’re suitable for those with injuries from the likes of gardening and outdoor sports. During the summer, we take to the great outdoors in the Dee Valley and raise money for charity.

Private yoga groups

Don’t want to come to a public class but have some friends and family you’d like to bring with you? A private group is what you need. Perhaps you fancy some fun with a healthy side order of calm? My yoga parties in and around Llangollen are ideal for birthday parties, hen-dos and other special occasions.

Linking mental health & nature

I’ve personally experienced the mental, emotional and physical benefits of nature so it’s my mission to help others get outside so they can see how healing it is for them.  Here are a few interesting facts… 

  • Nature connectedness is associated with lower levels of depression and anxiety levels. (Mental health foundation)
  • Clean natural areas are linked to lower rates of depression. (Mind)
  • Natural environments improve working memory, cognitive flexibility and attentional control. (apa.org)
  • Being in nature can improve confidence and self-esteem while reducing anger and frustration. (Mind)
