Get back to yourself with a day of yoga, walking and coaching to help you feel grounded, strong, connected and centred. Take time to refocus, network, think and create in the Northumberland landscape with experts and facilitators holding the space for you to find you (again). It’s a day for you, inside and out. An opportunity to find your new shape, your best self for now.
Who is it for?
Creative and Cultural practitioners with experience of, or an interest in, making outdoor work, work for heritage spaces, within the landscape, or simply people whose imaginations are fired by being out in nature and heritage with other creatives.

My yoga journey began in my 15 year career as a professional dancer and teacher. During my own dance training I studied various contemporary dance techniques including Cunningham, Graham and release. Though widely different in styles the commonality amongst all 3 was to prepare the mind and body for a wide range of movement possibilities. There were many parallels to yoga, the emphasis on breath, body alignment, mental control and relaxation. The foundation of my yoga practice is Sivananda, a classical and holistic approach to Hatha Yoga however I combine my dance background to create sequences that flow. I have taught dance to all ages and from beginners to advanced, including students starting their own vocational dance training at Dance City's Centre for Advanced Training programme. I retired from dancing professionally in 2010, and focused on a career in arts management. As well as my BA Hons in Dance from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Leeds, I also hold a Level 3 Diploma in Teaching Yoga, City And Guilds 7307 Level 3 Award: Training and Education and 85 Hour Yoga Alliance USA & Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) certified course covering Pregnancy, Postnatal and Mother & Baby Yoga yoga with Sally Parkes.
A Producer specialising in Programming and Coaching.
As a qualified and practising Relational Dynamics Coach I work with you to provide space for you to fully understand your own thinking, explore ideas or untangle thoughts or really focus on making plans to achieve a goal, it’s your time to use how you want and need on the day.
As a Producer I have a track record of delivering and supporting arts events and performances in pop-up, site-unconventional and traditional venue settings as well as working with artists across most artforms and networks of people who can help when I can’t. I specialise in methods of leading with engagement and embedding a consideration for audience into the heart of the idea and supporting new or unexpected collaborations. I have a model for helping artists develop and refine their ideas, especially at the stage of wondering if they need a Producer (and what they should look for in a Producer for this project), using coaching styles combined with Producing experience.
These two processes are separate and distinct, while both being available to you during the Re:Root day.
