I INVITE YOU TO JOIN ME ON THE MAT
FLOW WITH ME FOR FREEDOM AND JOY
Hello, I'm Angeleen, known to most people as Ange.
I grew up in Australia, where the sun was an ever-present force. It continues to inspire me to bring an uplifting energy to my classes, which take place in Hereford, where I have recently relocated from Brighton.
I will lead you to flow with an open heart, honouring the beauty of your own unique body as we uncover the freedom and joy of mindful movement
It is a great privilege for me to disperse the joy I generate on my mat into my relationships with my students. In the spirit of ahimsa, the principle of non-harming, I hold a non-judgmental space where everybody is welcome.

I've had the pleasure of being in Ange's classes after long tiring days at work and always came out feeling refreshed and energised. She is a great instructor and gets the level just right with a great flow to the yoga. She's also very welcoming and super friendly. Very much recommended.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
AN ENERGISED PREGNANCY AND EMPOWERED BIRTH WITH PRENATAL YOGA
Pregnancy is a beautiful and transformative experience. But the miraculous process of bringing life into this world can also come with some discomforts.
Feel better and stronger
My prenatal yoga classes can help alleviate pain and tension, strengthen muscles used in childbirth, improve sleep and reduce stress and anxiety.
Connect with other mums-to-be
The classes provide a wonderful opportunity to connect with other mums-to-be and feel supported through pregnancy.
The practice is gentle, nurturing and suitable for all body types and fitness levels.
YIN FOR A DEEPER STRETCH AND STRESS REDUCTION
In yin yoga, poses are held for 3-5 minutes or longer. When you surrender to gravity in this way you will experience a deep stretch of connective tissue such as ligaments, tendons and fascia.
Mobility, balance and stress reduction
My yin yoga classes promote increased flexibility, joint mobility and balance. The practice also focuses on mindfulness and deep breathing, and you are likely to experience emotional release and stress reduction.
The classes are suitable for all body types and fitness levels.
BUILD STRENGTH AS YOU FLOW WITH VINYASA
Vinyasa yoga empathises smooth, purposeful transitioning between poses in a continuous sequence, guided by a series of sun salutations.
Strength, flexibility and mindfulness
My vinyasa classes are a holistic practice that promotes both physical and mental well-being. We build physical strength and flexibility while practicing mindfulness and breath awareness.
I welcome beginners as well as more experienced yogis and offer poses that suit your form.

Which yoga class is right for me?It depends. If you're pregnant, the pregnancy yoga classes are obviously a great choice.
