“Mandy is an amazing teacher, she encourages and corrects each and every student throughout the class in a way that does not single anyone out. I remember that when I joined the class I thought that I would never be able to get into a challenging pose, however, Mandy's hard work payed off. I wasn't able to get into a "wheel" pose since I was 12 (a very long time ago!) and then during a regular class I realised I was up there and was able to hold the pose comfortably! I am very happy that I met Mandy, she is my favourite teacher and she changed me through teaching of yoga. Thank you!!! Namaste 🙏🏻”
“Dear Mandy Thank you so much for your inspirational teaching during our Ischia retreat. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and felt an amazing sense of achievement being able, with your guidance and encouragement to get into some new poses. Thank you again - you're the best yoga teacher ever. ”
“Hi Mandy You did a brilliant job facilitating & teaching the Yoga Retreat-- I wouldn't have known it was your first one. I liked starting with sitting & the Anusara prayer -- a good way to anchor each class. The poems you read out were inspiring. In fact, your structuring was perfect -- a more vigorous class in the morning working towards a challenging posture and then variety in the afternoon-- I personally really like partner work -- people get to know each other & learn in a different way. Great to finish with a Yoga Nidra -- though I prefer the more traditional one that rotates the consciousness around the body in a specific way, starting with the right hand thumb -- that order does something to the brain that works for me. I felt very comfortable with your directions & confidence in teaching -- nothing you did made me nervous -- you knew what you were doing & we could relax. Thanks for a great time! xx ”
“Love Mandy’s classes because she is wonderful. She is knowledgeable and focused. She makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable. Her classes are refreshing and renewing to the mind and body. Mandy makes yoga accessible for the beginner as well and the more seasoned practitioner. She always asks new students if they have injuries or issues so she knows to teach them modifications if needed. She obviously knows her anatomy, and explains how the poses benefit the parts of the body. She teaches to who is in front of her. Every class is different depending on who is there. See you soon.”
I’ve just been planning an awesome retreat in India for next February/March. I’m going back to Goa where I did my first ever yoga retreat abroad. I’ve chosen this area because I’ve been back to this place several times and I know what’s there so I feel comfortable taking a group there.
The accommodation (individual wooden cottages) is very special with antique Indian artefacts gathered from all over India. The beach is fantastic; wide and long, you can walk for hours (my partner and myself walked for 4 hours one day when we were there last year!) The staff are lovely and accommodating and there are lots of lovely shops and restaurants to explore, both locally and a bit farther afield.
Earlier this month I led a weekend retreat in West Lexham in Norfolk for the second year running. Once again we were not disappointed. This location is incredible, an eco-friendly space with all rooms designed individually and with crisp white bedding. They are rustically luxurious! This year it was colder than in 2018 and we were very grateful for the underfloor heating in the yoga shala. Our food supplied by Florentina Events was delicious vegetarian/vegan cuisine. As always the people made it; 10 lovely human beings who were there to make the best of the weekend. They made my job easy!
I’m looking at doing another UK weekend retreat later this year – watch this space!
A few weeks ago we completed the first beginners’ yoga course in Woburn Sands. All but one of the participants are going to continue their yoga journey having appreciated the difference that doing yoga just one hour a week can make. Here’s what one lady had to say:
“Thanks for such great sessions. I wish I’d started years ago! I’ve seen a difference in my stamina and flexibility and look forward to continuing to progress. Helen x”
We’re continuing with these classes on Saturday mornings. Look at my “Classes” section for more information.
Not long until we go to Marrakech for our week of luxury at the Tigmi Boutique Hotel. I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time with 10 yogis and yoginis, some familiar faces and some new, and watching “retreat magic” happen.
All classes are busy as yoga continues to become more and more popular. Members at David Lloyd who are runners are really noticing the difference yoga makes to their bodies. Do you know someone who could benefit from yoga? Not just the physical practice but also mindfulness and meditation. Please feel free to direct them to my website.
