Sarah specialises in career coaching; supporting a big career change from ideas, applications and right through to the interview or accelerating a current career.
Dawn specialises in life coaching; helping you work out where your passions and priorities lie and developing a plan to move forward and make it happen. Dawn is also a qualified Hatha Yoga instructor running classes, one to one’s and bringing mindfulness and Yoga practise into the coaching sessions when appropriate.
We work with a broad range of people; men, women, entrepreneurs, apprentices, mid career changers, mums returning to work, business owners and retired – they all share one thing in common – they know they want to do more, create more…be more but they don’t know where to start. We provide accountability and a framework, we give support and a safe confidential space to work out ideas and develop a plan.
For those considering a career change or looking for promotion Sarah will work on understanding your skills base, writing a stand out CV, job searches and interview preparation. Packages are built depending on your needs and can be as simple as a CV refresh or as in depth as a 3 month programme. Sarah works face to face or via Skype/calls.
For those who are not sure which direction to go in – is it career or something else?… then Dawn can work with you over a slightly longer period to discover and understand your strengths, passions and goals. Then help develop the plan and most importantly stay with you as you get going. Packages are also built to suit the individual and can include a mix of face to face and Skype/calls.
We regularly run workshops where we share some of the tips and practises that have worked for us and our clients. It’s a great opportunity to meet us and get a taster for how we work if you are thinking about working with a coach so check our website for dates and locations near to you.
For those looking for Hatha Yoga, relaxation, mindfulness or meditation please contact Dawn for more information.
We provide therapeutic and fun activities for people across the generations helping people connect with self, each other and nature. We offer volunteering opportunities to share skills, run activities, and help shape the project. Activities include; Mindfulness-based workshops, Gardening, Woodworking and Craft.
Nature’s Gym has a holisitc approach to exercise. As a whole we spend too much time indoors ‘sitting’ and if we do exercise that tends to be indoors too!
There are many benefits to exercising outdoors such as; increased immunity, greater reduction in stress & increased feeling of well being. We are more likely to continue with exercise due to the scenery and seasonal changes plus the interaction with others.
All sessions are held in Bruton, meeting at the Jubilee Park. Sessions are held on Monday 9.15am, Wednesday 6pm & Thursday 9.15am – during term time. (Morning sessions change during the holidays) Payments are by the 1/2 term at £6 per session usually six weeks.
Equipment used- Kettle Bells, Suspension Straps & mats, including benches, steps, hills and anything that can be adapted for exercise. All exercises can be adapted for any fitness level.
All sessions are run throughout the year- yes we were out in the Beast of the East- dressed in appropriate layers & hats! As the saying goes / there’s no such thing as bad weather just the wrong clothes.
Everyone welcome we are a friendly group. Please contact Paula Ross for more information.
Vespucci Adventures evolved from our passion for long distance walking and cycling. Day to day worries fall by the wayside, the spirit being freed by the shared experience and sense of challenge. We want to inspire a new generation to follow in our footsteps by giving you all you need to get out there and to put together your own adventure.
Amerigo Vespucci was a 16th century Italian explorer and cartographer. Less well known than some of his contemporaries, nonetheless he is credited with discovering “the Americas”. We would love our business to embody his sense of adventure, inspiration and love of maps and to share that with our customers. Hence Vespucci Adventures!
Beginners lessons for all ages. On my court or yours. DBS Checked
I have been teaching tennis for the last 4 years, giving lessons to all ages. Helping those who want to get back into the swing of tennis for social or match play.
All lessons can be on a one to one or in groups of up to 4 players. Balls and training equipment are provided.
Children’s lessons can be arranged after school and tennis holiday camps are held during the school holidays.
I teach from home in beautiful surroundings but am happy to travel to other private tennis courts.
An hour of fresh air and only rain stops play!
My style is Hatha Flow and the classes are fun, varied and can be adapted to all abilities and age groups, challenging those with more experience and adapting postures for those who are newer to yoga. Yoga complements other activities and is non competitive and suitable for everyone. There are also classes for older adults and those recovering from injury or illness and classes that are particularly well suited to men.
