Mizz Twisted Cherry Studios, an aerial and alternative dance studio, in Ross-on-Wye, and Natalie Morgan-Dew, its owner, are nominated in both the Happiest Workplace, and Happiest Workplace Person categories of the National Happiness Awards 2018.

In her nomination for Happiest Workplace, Natalie, who is both business owner and instructor, says, 'Mizz Twisted Cherry Studio, is a hub of support and enrichment'.

We believe that making fitness fun and helping people achieve 'great physical triumphs in lessons' aids people in improving their mental health and self-esteem.

Natalie added: 'Mental health is just as important as physical health. Not only to achieve in lessons but also in everyday life. The way we teach our classes promotes this. We have fun, we get silly, but we also make gravity-defying superhero moves and support each other through whatever life has in store for us all.'

Natalie says, ' Mizz Twisted Cherry Studios is dedicated to the wellbeing of the 'body, mind and soul of our students. It may explain why we have received further nominations for Natalie, in another happiness award category.

Ben Dew, Natalie's husband and the studio's equipment maintenance person, has nominated her in the Happiest Workplace Person category. He says: 'She is funny and doesn’t take herself too seriously. Even with all her achievements to date she still loves doing a silly dance or a snort when someone tries to compliment her. She helps all her students achieve something they never thought they could. Some people in this world just uplift others.'

Another nomination in the same category, from Emma Jewitt, a student of Natalie's, says: 'Speak to any of her students, they will tell you how since meeting her, their self-confidence & self-belief has improved. Natalie has inspired me to be me. She inspires me to believe I am strong, that I can nail that move, and she celebrates with me & shares my joy when I finally do nail it.

'She puts the happiness of others before her own. On my darkest day, I can go to her class & leave feeling happier. For all this, I believe she deserves this award.'

We have also had nominations supporting Natalie from, Beccy White, Marie Williams, Helen Sanders, and Danielle Wright. They are all students, and friends of Natalie, who say she is, 'inspiring', 'supporting', and makes people feel 'happy, warm and fuzzy'.

If there are any other supporters of Natalie who want to add to that feeling of 'warmth and fuzziness', you have until Wednesday, 24th October 2018 to submit your nominations.

Maybe you think your organisation deserves a chance to win a happiness award. Submit your happiness award nominations before midnight on the 24th and good luck. We look forward to receiving them.
