ERIKA TOURELL   Erika teaches a dynamic vinyasa flow class, integrating her experience of Iyengar, Astanga and Hatha yoga by emphasizing awareness of mind, body and breath whilst focusing on correct alignment.

She aims to provide a safe, nurturing environment to allow her students to develop their own understanding of yoga in an enjoyable way. Erika has been practising yoga for over 25 years and teaching for 20 years. Since 1989 she has worked as a holistic massage therapist and is presently studying Cranio-Sacral Therapy. From 1992-95 she lived in Thailand and India studying meditation, buddhism, yoga and shiatsu. It was during that time that she first discovered the delights of a disciplined daily self-practice. On her return to London she continued her study with a senior Iyengar teacher. After the birth of her first child in 1996 her teacher encouraged her to undertake teacher training so in 1998 she commenced a 3 year course with The British Wheel of Yoga.Since she qualified she has received instruction from many renowned teachers including Clive Sheridan, Shandor Remete, Tias Little, John Scott, Danny Paradise and Shiva Rea covering many different styles of yoga. She has also been greatly inspired by Amritananda Mayi (Amma) and Krishna Das in Bhakti yoga (the path of devotion}.

  TOM MORLEY   ‘Inventor’ – that’s what you’ll find on Tom’s business card. He’s inventing all the time, but not in the “I’ve finally perfected the coffee maker” way. More in the “I’ve just invented a new way to connect people” way.   Tom talks about THE GROOVE rather than the drums. Yes, rhythm is universally popular but it’s the outcomes of people making music together that are important.   www.instantteamwork.com

  STEPH BRADLEY    I am a storyteller, changemaker, poet and published author, currently researching my latest book - a three stranded story set in the Utopia of 2050, when the children of the future ask how we got there. We go back to our times, as well as the mythic ancient past, and hear how people now realised that it was through our inner journeys that we could make a difference.  I am passionate about people, stories and transformation.  The Quest to 2050 - In this workshop we will co-create the future you would like to live in.  Through storytelling, visioning and an interactive game, as a participant you will be led on a journey to visualise your own future as well as how you envisage our world in its most positive guise. Participants will leave the workshop knowing what step to take next in their own lives and any visions that they agree to share may find their way into a book which is creating the future from the dreams of those who care.  Most suitable for adults and young adults. (Children under 12 to be accompanied).   www.storyweaving.co.uk
