Catrin - Teithiau cerdded a natur When I take people out on walks, I thoroughly enjoy sharing the fact that we are blessed to live in an area like this. Teaching people about nature and what you can do with the things you find – from food to natural medicine, being outdoors is healthy and a great opportunity to chat. I'm a Welsh tutor so there's a chance to practice the language too.
Llinos - Language Tutor As most people who live in the area, I live through the medium of Welsh, been brought up in Welsh and been educated in Welsh. Following my experiences of working as a language tutor abroad, by now, I earn my living teaching Welsh to people from all corners of the world as well as here, locally, on my own doorstep.  My 'Wing it in Welsh' taster sessions are ideal for those who want to have a go!  I also offer two-day courses at Gwaith Powdwr nature reserve in Penrhyndeudraeth – a place full of history and nature. Get in touch about my 'Knowing the Area', 'The Nature Around Us' and 'Local Legends' courses. Lara – Photographer There is a beauty in capturing an image of a moment that has passed as soon as I press the shutter button. Moments that can be revisited by family, friends or customers. The photographs that I take provide a window in which my clients can share their story, whether that's for a personal or professional purpose. I am primarily a family and business photographer. I love delving into each shoot, capturing and exploring the intricacies of the subject matter. After every shoot I edit the images individually, giving them all the time and attention they deserve to really make them shine. The images I took here for Byw Bod are a prime example of this. I offer a professional, relaxing, and fun experience for all. Please get in touch to find out more! Olwen - Fferm y Llan I am the third generation to farm Llan Farm, a traditional beef and sheep farm, keeping various native breeds of cattle and sheep. Half the farm is at sea level, protected by the Cob sea wall in Porthmadog, and the rest rises to Rhyd, 500feet. The farm sells pure bred cattle and sheep, beef and lamb meat boxes, and runs hands on courses with cattle and sheep. Agricultural, environmental, and conservation discussion sessions are available (from a practical farming viewpoint), and the history of the farm and its surroundings.
Lauren - Pilates  Pilates is not just exercise, It's not just random choice of different movements. Pilates is a system of physical & mental conditioning that can enhance your physical strength, flexibility, & co-ordination as well as reduce stress, improve focus, postural alignment, and improve a sense of well-being. Pilates can be for anyone and everyone...  I first started attending Pilates classes while on a ski season in Morzine , France, after a few sessions I started to feel stronger and noticing the way I moved more often , after a few more sessions you could actually see the benefits, I became more toned and my posture started to improve. The instructor that we had was so inspirational that I never stopped going to classes when I returned to Wales , and thought to myself, that's what I want to do.
Sian – Artist To me creating art is a necessity, the benefits are vast and wide such as communicating, possibly relieving mental strain, escaping to distract from our problems and expressing emotions are but a few. Here at my studio based on the side of the Moelwyn mountain range, I welcome visitors to paint along side with me.
