Founded by Mele Broomes. Mele has been based in Scotland for 13 years and grew up in Southampton around lots of social dancing in a Caribbean family. As a child she was part of a Black-led artistic gymnastic team before going into formal dance training. Qualifications include: BA in Contemporary Dance Practice, Hatha Yoga 200 Hours, and a Women's Artistic Gymnastics Coach Level 1; though she doesn’t look at qualification as the sole certification to authentic teaching. Mele's’ experiences have influenced her teaching and this feds into her thoughts around care and consent.
"I hope these sessions can help support self-motivation, love for your body and new relationships with yourself and others."

FEES & SUPPORT
Classes are free of charge.
However, we take donations to support the running of the classes. Body Remedy currently offers financial support for travel, child care and access where possible. We would like to voice the importance of community support. Though the intention is to keep the classes free going forward. We ask that if you are able to make a donation, please do. This will enable Body Remedy to continue into the future. Black owned businesses’ are few and far between.
We are trying to navigate making these classes accessible to those who need it, whilst allowing this Black owned business to flourish.
