Unwinding the body
Movement class for all levels
at Rowen Memorial Hall
Using simple postures and breath awareness to tune into the innate intelligence of the body, this class offers the opportunity to open out of stiffness and weakness, to find space and depth in the body, in order to support how we move, feel and live.
In this weekly class we will explore:
  • Simple standing and lying postures to release tension and create strength.
  • Using the breath to deepen into movement, to energize the body and calm the mind.
  • Working with the body’s creativity to find new ways of moving and being in our bodies.
Lucy Parry is an experienced Pilates matwork and apparatus teacher, having trained with the Pilates Foundation UK in 2004.

Weekly class at Rowen Memorial Hall on Thursdays 1.15pm to 2.30pm.
Six week course starts on Thurs. 20th October 2016@ £45.

Rowen in the Conwy Valley is well-known as one of the prettiest villages in north Wales, and a popular starting point for a day in the hills. It’s also a lovely place to live!

Rowen is in the Snowdonia National Park, close to the coast and sheltered by the mountains. It has a nice climate, some very pretty gardens, and plenty of good walks.

Rowen Village Gardens Open Day every two years attracts large crowds of visitors.

Rowen has a very active and welcoming community, and there’s Welsh singing in the Ty Gwyn Hotel every Friday evening. We’re just a short distance from Conwy and Llandudno, with good schools and shops nearby.  It’s a great place to make a (permanent) home.  You’ll love it here!

We hope you like our community website, and we’d welcome your comments.
