About Johanna

‘I love encouraging people to enjoy their beautiful bodies with acceptance and without judgment,’ – Johanna Paxton, yoga and Natural Movement practitioner

From dance to Scaravelli yoga, and biomechanics, to Natural Movement, Johanna has been exploring movement in her practice for over 24 years.

As a certified MovNat Level 1 Instructor and a trained Yoga Teacher, she is passionate about helping people to reconnect with their bodies and to find ease in movement. Johanna’s classes focus on re-establishing the connection between the mind and the body, and on rediscovering the joy of moving in new and interesting ways.

She sees movement as an embodiment of freedom, as a way to find focus, balance, and grounding in the earth, an antidote to the stresses of modern life.

Johanna’s classes and private sessions in Milford Haven, Haverfordwest and Cardiff are tailored specifically to each individual, using her knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and body mechanics.
