Beth Winsor – owner Cameo Studio

Beth is a yoga teacher, professional photographer and creator of Cameo Studio. Originally from the Philippines, she has lived in Tokyo, Japan for six years and Pune, India for 4 years. Home is currently the Cotswolds with her husband, two children, a temperamental Indian cat and two bunnies.

A road accident in Japan when she was in her 20s left her with a broken leg. Although she recovered from the accident, she always felt weaker on her left side. Yoga has helped her to develop the strength, balance and awareness in both body and mind that she didn’t realise she needed. She studied yoga in India with Total Yoga directors, Manish Pole and Neetu Singh. Beth’s classes are nourishing and creative. She enjoys teaching dynamic, powerful flows and combining this with mindful and slower movements.

Beth loves the seaside, massive coffee table books and karaoke! She teaches many yoga classes herself and has a fantastic team of instructors supporting her.

David Bowen-Davies – Psychologist and Mind Coach

Unlock an extraordinary life by removing your internal barriers blocking change.

After experiencing many personal challenges in his own life, David sought help, received coaching and started to heal himself. Through this he learnt that his thoughts and how he perceived himself had been preventing transformational change.
