Sally Roach is a Mindfulness Facilitator and Yoga Teacher.

After working as an Information Scientist and then a Community Worker Sally finally found her vocation as a Yoga and Meditation teacher in 2001. After exploring a variety of meditation techniques, Mindfulness gave her a feeling of 'coming home'. She discovered the power of self-acceptance and her meditation and life began to change.

Inspired to continue, she completed her Mindfulness Training in 2011 at Samye Ling with Rob Nairn and went on to train in Compassion and Insight and then Teaching skills for the Mindfulness and Compassion 8-week courses with the Mindfulness Association. She has also studied with international Compassion teachers, Sir Paul Gilbert, Kristin Neff and Chris Germer.

Sally follows the Good Practice Guidelines and is on the UK listing of Mindfulness Teachers. Since 2013 She has been regularly delivering Mindfulness and Compassion training courses to private groups and organisations.

Sally suffered from chronic fatigue in her early 20s. This drew her to body-awareness based practices including Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and learning about nervous system regulation. She runs regular classes including Trauma Informed Chair Yoga for people with chronic illness, pain and fatigue. She enjoys leading workshops and retreats weaving Mindfulness and movement with themes from the natural world.

Her years of teaching yoga adds a wealth of experience in helping people drop deeply into their bodies and embody the practices.


Juliet Graves is an Educational Practitioner with 30 years’ experience in training within health, social care and education. After a chance encounter with Mark Williams book Juliet has embraced Mindfulness over the last 6 years, integrating it into all her training within the NHS.

She now works independently and specialises in designing and delivering training on Resilience, and Mindful Stress management to anyone who will sit still long enough to listen (including the NHS, NE Universities and Social services).

She is qualified to teach the 8-week Mindfulness Based Living course and has adapted this to engage people who don’t recognise the usefulness of Mindfulness. For more information please go to www.julietgravesconsultancy.co.uk.
