Founder / Thrive Programme / Structural Integration
Paul uses Structural Integration (Rolfing), dynamic functional movement and manipulation of the ‘magical’ fascia to bring balance, poise and power into your life. In sessions Paul frees and lengthens your stuck and painful body and mind patterns, old and new, for good.
Paul has worked on many continents and with many different walks of life . He has been inspired and blessed by the Massai medicine man in the rift valley, and journeyed with the Yawa-nawa shaman. Paul studied Rolfing at the foot of the rocky mountains with the fairest native american shaman rolfer on record. He has been lucky enough to be befriended and gently guided by many incredible practitioners from near and far who have shared their wisdom freely.
Paul shares that we are much more than we have been taught and is fascinated by human potential. We are all much more than we realise and being lucky enough to see people expand and grow is what gets Paul up in the morning. Whether it is clearing old pains and problem, resolving lifelong emotional burdens or a complete metamorphosis, Paul’s experience is that everyone can Thrive.

Mirella is an enthusiastic and outgoing person who has always enjoyed learning and improving. She believes, upon discovering the practice of yoga 8 years ago, it has changed her approach to life and situations completely.
Studying the depths of the practice in India was one the best experience of her entire life (after giving birth to her daughter of course).
She is qualified in Ashtanga, but loves mixing the practice up with other poses too, to keep her classes fresh and innovative. She loves what she does and passing the same passion on to her students. There is so much to learn from each other in every class.
At Well Bath, Mirella offers Hatha Flow. Mirella welcomes all levels into her classes; the yogis will be tested and the novices made welcome and nurtured.
Mirella is a favourite in the yoga community. We are lucky enough to have her expertise at Well Bath.

When arriving back in the UK she continued practicing at various studios across the London while working in PR.
