I use Structural Integration (Rolfing) , dynamic functional movement and manipulation of the ‘magical’ fascia to bring balance, poise and power into your life. Ok so thats the elevator pitch but its a fair starting point. In sessions we free and lengthen your stuck and painful body and mind patterns, old and new, for good. I’m told my namesake was Paul the evangelist and there may be something in that. Ive worked on many continents and with many different peoples . I have been inspired and blessed by the Massai medicine man in the rift valley, i have journeyed with the Yawa-nawa shaman. I studied Rolfing at the foot of the rocky mountains with the fairest native american shaman rolfer on record. i have been lucky enough to be-friended and gently guided by many incredible practitioners from near and far who have shared their wisdom freely. Its been a wild ride and i have much to evangelise. I have learned (or remembered) that we are much more than we have been taught. I’m fascinated by human potential. We are all much more than we thought and being lucky enough to see people expand and grow as they realise this is what gets me up in the morning. Whether it is clearing old pains and problem, resolving lifelong emotional burdens or a complete metamorphosis, my experience is that everyone can Thrive. Well is my tribe and everyone is welcome.
Events coordinator, Nutrition Wellbeing Coach
What we eat serves as preventative medicine, a source of nourishment and also one of healing. Emma has had a deep affinity with world food, food history, spices and the effects of what we eat (physically, emotionally and spiritually) since a young age. She has travelled extensively around the world and learnt from people who have a deep wisdom about how and what to eat, that has been passed down through generations. She has also studied nutritional therapy and worked professionally with food, spices and nutrition for 12 years, cooking, writing, educating and researching.
“I feel passionately about the heritage, culture and wisdom that surround spices, herbs and other ingredients that have historically been used to promote health and wellbeing. All my work aims to bring the lost wisdom and nourishing traditions of food as medicine, back into the conversation about food, cookery, and nutrition. Aiding people to discover a deeper understanding of, balance with and connection to the food we eat.”

Tiana Jacout, 5 elements Acupuncture
The word “healthy” comes from the same root word that makes “whole”. That is what I’ve dedicated myself to; the study of wholesomeness, of balance, and of healing. A journey that has taken me to the Himalayas for two years, to study under a yogic master; to the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine for four years, to learn acupuncture; all the way to running a trauma clinic all last year in the Calais “Jungle” refugee camp.
I’ve treated all over the world, worked with buddhist sound healers, charities that support injured veterans, the Water Protectors of Standing Rock, trained as an EFT therapist, all teaching me how to become a better and more rounded person (and healer- although rarely I separate the two in my mind)
This has given me invaluable experience and an inexhaustible arsenal of tools to support and facilitate healing for others. It never fails to thrill me when a patient has that first experience of a treatment touching them in places they weren’t aware could be treated; or the first time someone begins to see the connection in their life, diet, emotional self, spirit, behaviour and history, all accumulating into them and their health.
Pam Leslie, Hath Yoga
Pam began practicing yoga in 1982 and gradually it began to be more of a focus, leading her to study and practice with some renowned yoga teachers (Clive Sheridan, Pattabhi Jois, John Scott, Shandor) both in the UK and in India. A three year training with an Iyengar teacher (1998) and a teacher training with Erich Shiffmann (2002) and a Yogabugs training (2005) have all led her to be the teacher she is today.
Pam is also a fully qualified counsellor (reg member BACP) and body worker working in private practice and with Trauma Foundation South West.
Hatha (literally means the combination utilizing the energies of sun ha and moon tha, the mind and body to bring about balance and harmony) and is more commonly used as a general term to describe all yoga styles.
The style of this class is working with a variety poses or asana, connecting the body with the breath then bringing awareness into the quality and depth of movement. This is done in a mindful, sometimes challenging (and often fun) way, by exploring the edges of the stretch – not pushing but releasing into a place of stillness and balance. To end the class, a relaxation and meditation help bring about more peace of mind.
