Whether you are new to yoga, exploring or experienced, I welcome you to journey with me, on the yoga mat, to the true you.
I started practicing yoga with Amanda 3 years ago after relocating to the UK from South Africa. I have attended Monday and Tuesday night classes and the deeper dimensions class on a Thursday.
Amanda never fails to inspire me and there is always something new and interesting to look forward to in her classes. I love the fact that she explores different themes and her classes are always so well thought out. Yoga is definitely a highlight of my week each week and I feel really sad if I ever have to miss class.
During the lockdown, which was very stressful for me working on the frontline, I found Thursday night yoga the perfect way to destress and refocus. I certainly feel my yoga practice has huge benefits both physically and mentally. I always finish practice feeling more positive and energized.
I would highly recommend Amanda's classes- they are great fun, challenging, insightful and there is class to suit all needs.
Thank you for an inspiring Sunday Deeper Dimensions of Yoga workshop morning,
And also for including chair yoga to allow me to participate
I cannot wait for the next workshop!

I started attending Amanda's Monday evening classes 8 years ago, having no prior experience of yoga at all, and it was one of the best choices I have ever made! Despite being a shaky wreck with minimal muscle tone at the time, Amanda made me feel like yoga was still accessible to me.
The class caters to all levels of experience and Amanda is able to confidently cater to the varying abilities and needs of each and every student, weaving it all seamlessly into an enjoyable, beneficial and enlightening class. Amanda is extremely knowledgeable about, and respectful of the history, traditions and beliefs related to yoga.
This class has helped me become a more energetic and healthy person and I would highly recommend it! T.B
'S' has been going to 1:1 sessions with Amanda for 2 years now as she was having difficulties concentrating at school and tended to get fidgety and distracted. I wanted to help improve her attention and focus as well as her self control and calmness. Amanda has amazing experience with children with special educational needs and was highly recommended to me. She quickly developed a really good rapport with S, who always looked forward to her sessions, and she was excellent at getting the most out of S, no matter how tired/distracted she may be. (-not an easy task!) S’s confidence, concentration and school performance have all improved significantly during the last 2 years and we have Amanda to thank for making a big contribution towards this
I'm attending the weekly Monday evening class suitable for beginners to advanced practitioners for about three months now. As a beginner I can honestly say that with Amanda's help I'm starting to feel more comfortable with my practice. It gives me great motivation through the week and I simply enjoy every minute of our classes - from the physical to the spiritual part.
I am grateful for getting a good stretch and Amanda's positive attitude towards life every week.
Amanda is a very knowledgeable and intuitive teacher. She leads a multi-level yoga class, each week's lesson carefully planned and unique. Her instructions are adapted to suit the abilities of each student. Her sequences are inspiring and challenging, but achievable.
Amanda shares her passion for meditation and yogic philosophy into a chosen theme for each term.
It's a pleasure to be in her class. Marcia
Amanda's pregnancy yoga class was fantastic! Amanda is a great yoga teacher, and a mum, and created a very relaxing environment for us to prepare for what lay ahead!
The exercises, positions, breathing and relaxation we practised were very specific to helping us through pregnancy and labour.
I am pleased to report back that I had a drug free stress free birth and I'm certain my yoga really helped with that - thanks Amanda!
Would most definitely recommend these classes to any pregnant mums in the Ruislip/Hillingdon/Uxbridge area 🙂

Contractions started & I breathed them all out! The methods learned really helped me focus & I didn't scream once! It also really helped to keep me calm & focused. Thank you!!
Our baby boy is simply gorgeous & we love him to bits!
I sent the what's app group pictures.
Happy new mum Sarah

Thank you so much for last nights yoga practice, I LOVED IT. I felt so good afterwards.
A friend and I walked into Bailey Hall, Uxbridge over 6 years ago on a Tuesday evening; neither of us had practiced before and had no idea what to expect. I am delighted to say that I have never looked back; yoga has become a huge part of my life and I am forever grateful to Amanda. She has taught me; alongside many others, not only the yoga postures but also the fascinating history and theory behind this ancient practice; including my mother! The lessons are adapted to all individuals and are also amazingly fun!
I joined Amanda’s pregnancy yoga classes after a recommendation from a friend. The hour and a half every week has been amazing and something I look forward to, to have some me time and really slow down. Amanda has great knowledge of how to adapt the exercises for different people and their needs. I’ve learnt so much in the classes, from breathing techniques for different stages in labour, to useful positions for birth. Amanda creates a lovely calm atmosphere and community for the women in the classes, which is great support throughout the pregnancy. Would highly recommend!
