She has further trained to teach PAWS.b through the Mindfulness in Schools Project and MBCT-Life with the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre. She has since taught the 8-week MBCT course to people in the community, health and education teams and one to one while working as a hand therapist and teaching mindfulness for longterm health conditions at Spire Norwich Hospital.  Debbie is currently taking a break from teaching mindfulness at the studio to focus on applying for a PhD fellowship.  You can still find her teaching mindfulness at Spire.

Avril Soards

Avril Soards

Avril has worked as a physiotherapist since 2010 with professional sports teams and GP practices in the region. As an avid climber and a national level gymnast, it was natural that she would aim to help improve the health of others through the use of exercise and further trained in yoga and pilates.  With her experience in physiotherapy and competitive sports, she will tailor the practices to your needs to help you progress at your own pace.  She now combines her work as a physiotherapist in GP practices in Norfolk with teaching clinical pilates and yoga classes.

Michelle Busittil

Michelle Busuttil

Michelle Busuttil, Yoga Teacher, BSc (hons), MSc, (dipFRYOG) (international), holder of BWY diploma and Birthright diplomas in aqua natal yoga, baby swimming and baby yoga and is a Certified Infant Massage Instructor. She believes passionately in the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of yoga and supports those in her classes to experience these benefits in every class she teaches.

They are suitable for people who have practised yoga before for people at a beginner level. She also offers private classes for those who may want to try yoga before they attend a class.

Sarah Gale

Sarah, a qualified Primary School teacher, first heard of Mindfulness in 2013, while in conversation with a friend, but didn’t pursue it until 2017, when she completed the 8-week MBSR course. Sarah felt it was unlike anything she had done before, an exercise to keep the mind healthy, and became passionate about delivering it to children. She trained to teach the PAWS B (Pause Be) course for 7-11 year olds in 2019. Sarah has seen first-hand in schools how children struggle to concentrate fully on lessons when there’s a lot of social or emotional problems/worries buzzing around in their minds. She has since gone on to teach the 10-12 week course in schools across Norfolk and in private courses for families.

Laura Wilson

Laura became interested in mindfulness as a qualified Science and Psychology secondary school teacher observing that many young people were regularly shouldering unnecessary pressures and daily stresses. She completed a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course in 2017 quickly saw how the skills learned through mindfulness would benefit the mental wellbeing of young people. She trained to teach the .b (Dot Be) mindfulness programme for 12-18 year olds through the Mindfulness In Schools Project (MiSP) in 2019. She now teaches the nine week .b course for teens in the classroom and in private sessions.
