Yoga teacher, trainer, singer and storyteller Claire Mace is based in North Wales. She is deeply moved by the healing power of nature.
Her gift is in creating safe space for people to become more embodied, and therefore better able to integrate their gifts and navigate through their world.
She runs yoga classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings that guide students to practice where they are at, working at their edge compassionately, no matter what their age, weight, flexibility, or prior yoga experience.
Claire will be teaching early morning Yoga classes at Sacred Pause, for everyone, and is also taking bookings for 121 lessons (an optional extra). To book in a lesson with Claire, you can get in touch directly with her by email or phone.

Reiki Master Therapist & Session Leader
When Jana Labaki encountered Reiki, it was at a time of great personal crisis in her life. Jana was amazed by how impactful Reiki was in helping her overcome difficulties, and change her life for the better. She quickly decided it had to become a big part of her life - and of what she would offer to the world.
Fast forward, and having transitioned from a highly successful career in the corporate world, Jana is now a Reiki Master Teacher! Her healing style blends energy work, traditional indigenous wisdom, human psychology and biology (which she studied in an earlier life).

Reiki Master Therapist
Dinea started her Reiki journey by accident when she attended a short session at the Allbright women’s club and came away with the feeling that this was something she should do! In 2019 Dinea took her Reiki 1 at Torsten Lang's London Reiki Academy, and in October 2021 she became a Reiki Master, and is loving learning as she moves forward on her Master path!
Dinea's Reiki practice has so far mostly been centred on distance healing. Over the Summer, Dinea sent an especially powerful distance Reiki session whilst she was sending, outside a Jazz tent at "Love Supreme" - "good vibrations" indeed! To book a Reiki session with Dinea during the retreat, click here.
Dinea's interests include: comics, Anime, silent films, ancient Greece, wellbeing, good food and hot baths! She is inspired by passionate people who are still open-minded and inclusive.
Fun fact: Dinea was once interviewed by Lemmy (of Motorhead fame)!
