Evony Lynch- I've been a midwife and doula for nearly twenty years, and believe passionately that all women should be able to have a positive birth experience, one that optimises their own innate ability to grow and birth their baby, nurtures physiology and recognises the rite of passage that is birth. Bringing together my experience of supporting women to make individual choices, catching babies as a homebirth midwife and having witnessed the power of hypnobirth, I want to help you have the best opportunity to experience a calm, empowered birth experience for you and your baby. www.evonylynch.uk info@evonylynch.uk 07856212954

Romy Carr- (Satya Yoga) is a 500 hr yoga teacher. She did her first yoga teacher training in the spiritually-rooted, classical hatha tradition (Sivananda Vedanta) in 2011, and then trained in Vinyasa Flow and Qigong with Mimi Kuo Deemer (Triyoga, London). She recently completed her third teacher training with Meghan Currie in 2018 (Exquisite Metta~morphosis Vinyasa flow). Her practice now draws from a combination of these expressive, flowing and artful disciplines. Her style is creative, playful, graceful and strong. Intelligent sequencing is inspired by connecting to nature, reducing stress, improving and brightening energy flow. Sanskrit philosophy is at the heart of each session, as is the practice of self-study through physical conditioning. Don't worry if you're new to yoga, Romy will give plenty of options to modify poses so the sessions are accessible to all. www.satyaflow.com 07896 328030

Adult Ballet Penzance

Maria De Francesca- I was born in Southampton to Anglo/Italian parents. I Lived in Bristol for many years and had two children before travelling through Central America and the Caribbean. I moved to Cornwall in 1995 and had another child, and with my partner we renovated a barn near Madron. I became a yoga teacher and then studied for a Degree in Dance and became a ballet assistant to Penzance’s infamous ‘Miss’ Diana McGowan. I have taught GCSE, BTEC Dance for many years - in secondary schools in Penzance and St Ives, and I’m currently teaching Classical Ballet at Truro College. I inherited the McGowan School of Dance in 2016 and undertook my Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Ballet Teaching qualification. The school is thriving and I love teaching a range of students from baby ballet all the way up to older students - having just qualified as a Silver Swans RAD Teacher (gentler ballet for the mature dancer).

Sylvia Roberts- I have explored many different approaches to the teaching of yoga having been actively involved in it's practice since 1969. I began my training with The All India Board Of Yoga and, in addition, have gained teaching qualifications with other schools of yoga, to include :- Dru Yoga (Life Foundation School Of Therapeutics) FRYOG (Friends Of Yoga Society International), Vinyoga and The British Wheel Of Yoga. Whatever age, ability and limitations, I like to think that my classes are a time for students to cherish themselves learning to unwind slowly and naturally in a safe and comfortable environment. We will be working gently, systematically and with awareness through progressive gentle stretches to revitalise the body, increase it's potential for movement and release deep rooted tensions. Breath control and awareness improves the circulation helping to promote calmness. ylviaroberts2810@yahoo.com 07980 058778

Gong sound healing, Yin Yoga

Ali Gunning- is a sound healer, yoga teacher/therapist and retreat facilitator based in the magical lands of West Penwith: I have dedicated the last ten years to exploring movement, breath and sound for personal transformation and my intention is to hold authentic spaces for your own experience of these practises. The yin way is to surrender into simple postures for extended periods of stillness; dropping into the deeper, darker layers of body and mind. It is a meditative style of yoga and while quiet, nourishing and yielding, it can be both physically and mentally challenging. www.resonantbeing.net resonantretreats@gmail.com 07855402837
