RIVER FLOW YOGA

GRAHAM

Graham is the founder of River Flow Yoga, who is a qualified teacher with British Wheel of Yoga and a practitioner in the field of the senses – working for almost 20 years with deafblind people as well as teaching yoga.  His style is relaxed, accessible and warm.  Graham now calls Glasbury home where he lives with his partner and three dogs – the river and the mountains have had a profound effect on his yoga and through his practice he shares some of that natural inspiration.  Graham teaches from a place of integrity and passion for the accessability of yoga – he is developing a yoga teacher training in 2018 which for the first time in Europe will be delivered in English and British Sign Language.  As well as being deeply laid back and relaxed – Graham also enjoys a good laugh – be prepared to share this phenomena throughout classes and retreats!

Graham’s teaching style is open to all, being a signer, and specialist in the field of disabilities Graham believes that yoga classes should be accessible and open to all.  Graham also holds an MSc in Communication and Congenital Deafblindness where his thesis focused on teaching social care staff mindfulness techniques in order to become better communication partners with people who are deafblind.  As part of that study Graham focused on the relationship between the mind and our senses, most importantly touch, qualifying as a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist.  Graham also provides massages from Chapel on the Green - a tranquil and beautiful space in the heart of Glasbury.

ADELE

Is an author forager and founder of Brecon Beacon Foraging . She has had 12 or so books published including ‘The Signs and Symbols Sourcebook’ which has sold over 300,000 copies  all over the world. ‘The Hedgerow Handbook’, also a best seller, changed her life after its publication. Adele found increasing numbers of people asking her to teach them about edible wild plants. Other foraging titles are ‘The Garden Forger’ and, most recently, ‘Foraging with Kids’, aimed at families learning together. She has also turned ‘The Hedgerow Handbook’ into a gin, which sold out in the way only a limited edition of a very exquisite gin can.

Previously, Adele was part of a band, then ran a record label, then built a recording studio in the Brecon Beacons. She believes that music, art, being outdoors and being human are all ground from the same stardust. 

BLUE

Blue has been working with the tarot for over 10 years, initially drawn to it by an interest in magical symbolism and archetypes in art. Her exploration of  esoteric subjects began as a child, with a fascination for sacred sites and stone circles, followed by a life long interest in how ritual and magic can exist in the everyday.  A sensitive and generous reader, Blue approaches the tarot in a humanist manner, seeing the cards as tools for insight, growth and empowerment, an opportunity to unfold the journey ahead of you.
