Johannah has been following her passion for connecting humans and nature for most of her career. She has a passion and understanding that nature is medicene for us all, and the deeper we are connected to it, the healthier we are on every level, physically, spiritually and emotionally. This understanding feeds into her teaching and leadership within Planetree Adventure, whilst teaching navigation on Duke of Edinborough expeditions, bushcraft in the woods, Agored Cymru modules to challenging and special education individuals, and problem solving/teambuilding activities to many clients. Johannah is a qualified Primary School Teacher at KS2. She is very proud of her Mountain Leader qualification.  To add to this, Johannah has pursued a life long private practice in the well being arts, such as breath work, mediation , mindfulness and Firewalking. Johannah is  a qualified Firewalking practitioner, trained by the master teacher Peggy Dylan in the accreditred Sundoor School. Johannah has led hundreds of people in her highly respected Firewalking workshops. Within these work shops ,there is a high level of emotional intelligence mastery, and in recent years, Johannah , as a natural mother and care giver, has grown in her understanding of how these approaches are extremely important to adults and children alike. It was out out of this understanding that Firebration was born. Firebration is a company that not only leads adults in excellent, sacred Firewalking practices, but also holds school based activities and workshops that incorperate some of the excellent practices from the well being and emotional resilience aspects of her training. Her latest combination of emotional resilience, outdoor expedition skills, and mindfulness techniques have been of benefit to children across the county. She has taken her unique teaching style and skill set into schools and through the latest project, her aim has been to impart confidence, adventure skills , emotional resilience , and passion for nature to the children in her care.
