Amelia Hodge, Pure Yoga Bristol

Amelia’s Hatha yoga will gently encourage you to explore your physical and mental capabilities, guiding you towards a deeper understanding of yoga and its philosophy. The atmosphere is authentic, relaxed, friendly and open for EVERY body to experience the incredible benefits of yoga. Her teachings incorporate meditative postures to encourage full observation, calmness and peace throughout. 


Rosalind J Turner, Dip.Hum.Psych. Interdisciplinary Practitioner.

Rosalind will be interactively questioning our experience and perspective of “being human”. Interested in the identities we create and the structures we design for ourselves, ultimately, she questions us on the stories we tell ourselves, the tales we tell others and thus, the cultural narratives we create.


Sarah Martin, Business Development Director at Lemon Gazelle, will be covering the following topics:

Headline health issues: why is mental and physical health and wellbeing in the spotlight?
The Commodification of health and wellbeing, and its implications for sustainability 
Can our health and wellbeing activities and actions be good for us, good for our planet and good for each other?  
How can our health and wellbeing choices be more sustainable, both at home and in our workplaces?

Rosalind J Turner, Dip.Hum.Psych. Interdisciplinary Practitioner.

Described by herself as maverick, and by others, as a sometimes-audacious provocateur, Rosalind asks, dare we tell a different story? An early adopter of Netwalking and a now passionate advocate of cold-water swimming, Rosalind’s curiosity in the human condition and her own well-being has led her down many a varied path. Training initially in the arts, she has tackled roles as diverse as event and production management, teaching women self-defence, walk leader and driving 7.5-ton trucks.  It was, however, during the early years of parenthood she studied Humanistic Psychology, a Post Graduate Diploma entitled Leadership, Facilitation and Coaching, which deepened her questioning around our experience of and perspective of this, ‘being human’. Interested in the identities we create and the structures we design for ourselves, ultimately, she questions us on the stories we tell ourselves, the tales we tell others and thus, the cultural narratives we create.


Amelia Hodge, Pure Yoga Bristol

Amelia views the discipline of yoga as a vital element to learn about our nature as human beings. Her teachings are infused with a meditative practice to transcend the mind, dealing mostly with body and breathing practices guiding awareness to internal states and senses. Amelica incorporates meditative postures to encourage full observation, calmness and peace throughout, bringing attention to the more subtle and positive powers within to encourage creativity, intuition and contentment.
