Here are a few questions I hear from my clients...

WHAT IS YOGA? or what does yoga mean

Yoga is the science of rightful living and, as such, is intended to be incorporated in daily life.

It works on all aspects of the person: the physical, vital, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual.

The word YOGA means 'Unity' or 'Oneness' and is derived from the Sanskrit word Yuj which means to Join.

Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonizing the body, mind and emotions.

This is done through the practice of yoga postures, breath work, visualizations, inspirational readings, mindfulness meditation, relaxation.


Physically, a regular yoga practice is one of the best things you can do for your body.

  • Stimulates muscles, nerves and organs.
  • Releases tightness
  • Reduces strain
  • Improves circulation
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Supports healthy digestion

Yoga has a profound effect on your emotional state.

  • Improves concentration
  • Increases confidence
  • Quiets a busy mind.
  • Stress-related symptoms
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

there's simply nothing better you can do.


The practice of Yoga can make your body more flexible giving your muscles and your joints a greater range of motion.
A supple, flexible body is less prone to injuries because it can withstand physical stress.

Yoga is a practice….As long as you give your best effort, you will receive the same therapeutic benefits as someone who has practised for years.

Strength - Flexibility - Balance


styles include Beginners, Gentle, Kundalini, Restorative & Yin.


Wear clothes that allow you to move freely. Stretchable fabric is most desirable.


A small snack fruit, almonds, smoothie, 1 hour before class is ideal.

 "As I approach (to my surprise!) the age of 60 this year, I am overweight and I have a recurring back problem. Sometimes my hips or other joints ache at night and this can stop me sleeping well.

I was just delighted that the yoga postures you provided could have been especially targeted at my particular problems. I felt my body stretch without straining, and I felt that I could push it to achieve just a bit more without pressure.

And the calm, spiritual, supportive atmosphere you create suits me also.You are very non-judgemental and that helps me - to know that I can try something or not, depending on what I know my own limits, but also know that these limits will change as I become more flexible.

After that very first session, I felt better, I slept without discomfort, and best of all I was motivated to continue! I think that your very supportive style and the calm atmosphere you create in that little hall are very Therapeutic!"
- Julie

"What I loved about our morning yoga practice with Amanda, was the gentle reminder to be present, Having someone acknowledge the business of mind, the tick lists, the continual rushing to get these lists completed, perpetually thinking of family, work, deadlines, the pressures we put on ourselves. Having Amanda gently reminding us to put them to one side, and focus purely on the self. my breathe, my presence, my connection to the mat and the listening to my body.What a gift to oneself in a safe encouraging way. Amanda talked through and demonstrated the poses, then would again remind us to be present, to bring back our naturally busy minds and breathe. "
- Zoe Anderson

" I came to yoga with the idea of achieving suppleness but I am still going every week because I leave the class feeling mentally rested, refreshed and focussed. I have learnt to be conscious of how I breathe and how breathing can be used to encourage calm in the body and mind. I have also learnt to identify different sensations in my body - I am finally getting properly acquainted with my body. Amanda does not insist on her students attaining any particular pose or exercise - she offers a range of alternatives which allows each person to practice at their own level. I am a convert and genuinely recommend Amanda's classes to anyone who feels the slightest inclination to give yoga a try."
- Chanel

"When I first started going to Yin Yoga classes that Amanda taught I knew instantly that yoga was her passion. Amanda is genuine and practices what she preaches. Coming out of her classes you are rejuvenated with enriched feelings of peace and love. I very much enjoy the teachings that are brought into the classes, that are messages and reminders for us all to help us through many challenging situations in our lives. "
- Danielle, Fuel Nutrition

Amanda thanks for your wonderful teaching over this past weekend. It was wonderful to feel my body remembering what it can do and has given me the impetus to get more time on my mat.
I enjoyed your teaching style and the variety of classes you took over the short time. I feel Great !
