Dandelion Snowley

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have always had a love of physical movement and expression, for example, yoga and free-form dance, and I started running in 2004 when I joined a running group hoping to gain techniques to build up confidence and stamina.

On my own personal fitness journey, I enjoy exploring a variety of activities, using goals and playful techniques to strengthen motivation and energy and working with the balance between confidence, exercise, well-being, mental health and functional fitness in life, including improving artistic practises such as singing or drama. 

I enjoy working with people and supporting growth in confidence and knowledge around physical fitness, strength, flexibility, health, and well-being.
