Teacher for life

Anne-Marie is a wonderful teacher, the perfect balance of being able to show you a pose and then guide you to achieve it for yourself. Always conscious that we are not all the same physically but that we can all reap the reward of daily meditation to make the very best of what we have and improve what we are capable of. Her experience allows her to work with old and young alike, novice or experienced she acts as a guide to better things for everyone in the class.

I highly recommend Anne Marie and James

Three years ago I was looking for a yoga class. My requirements were quite specific. I wanted a class with a spiritual philosophy, small enough for individual attention as I wanted to develop a personal practice, and with a teacher with experience in working with people with physical difficulties [I have had a mastectomy, a deltoid muscle removed and a hip replacement and did not want to cause any further damage!]. I found exactly what I was looking for with Anne Marie.


When I started classes it was as a total beginner. It was some years since I had exercised regularly, apart from walking, and I was extremely cautious and lacking in flexibility. I began with a sitting version of sun salutations and felt faint. However, I was in this for the long haul and began to practice every morning before breakfast. Very gradually, with Anne Marie’s encouragement and support, I could feel progress.
Nearly three years on, it is hard to remember that yoga has not always been part of my life. My daily practice continues and I find that limitations I thought I had don’t exist! Classes are invaluable now in helping me to develop my practice, they are challenging and thoroughly enjoyable. I wonder what I’ll be able to do in another three years.
Thank you Anne Marie and James, I cannot recommend you highly enough.
