"Hugh is an excellent teacher; great listener and guide on your journey over the weeks of this course. There has been lots of interesting and at times serious discussion but a huge amount of fun, and laughter which I hadn't expected, but most sincerely enjoyed. It has been also useful to know that everyone's journey with themselves is neverending and the stories that Hugh has shared about his own life, practice and experience have been very informative and comforting. Great venue, materials are excellent and easy to access electronically (if you choose).
If you would like to discuss any aspect of this course please feel free to call Hugh on (01869) 340335 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
"Hugh’s teachings are of great simplicity. This simplicity applies to the asanas as well as to all the other aspects of yoga, both on and off the mat. His keys are bandhas and breath as a tool of self teaching, self correcting and self healing. It is hugely suitable for people working with injury or for those working with restrictions in the physical body." Catherine Chichester Yoga Teacher and Raw Food Nutritionist.
Really is first class and very professional.".

Hugh is an excellent tutor. He does not expect too much from
anyone. He is very dedicated to his yoga and I admire him
for this. He also has a wonderful sense of humour - which
all tutors require.
Wendy Peake Office Manager
Hugh's class is fantastic. I look forward to it all week! Hugh is the perfect example of teaching by demonstrating and explaining the postures using the understanding he has gained through years of practice. He's inspiring.
Francine Rodrigues 26-35 Public Relations
I think that Hugh's set approach provides for beginners a safe route, through which they may progress in their own time. For more experienced students the class provides an opportunity to engage more fully. Hugh's mindful approach to the postures and locks transforms the experience of them in subtly different ways during each class. I have always found the class to be friendly and informal, non competitive and supportive.
Sarah Perry Antiquarian Bookdealer and Yoga Teacher 36-45
Hugh makes classes interesting and fun, knows everyone's abilities
and limitations and makers sure they get the best from the
class. He cares about each person.
You make yourself very clear and understanding, very helpful
Barbara Steele 36-45 Mother
I like the fact that the classes are non competitive and that
you progress at your own pace.
Jane King 36-45 Lecturer in Accounting
Impressed with your attention to detail and the individual
participants requirements, problems and positions during the
class. Good range of positions and explanations throughtout.
Excellent supervision and explanation.

I am very happy with the classes. They are relaxed and everyone
can work as hard or as gently as they wish.
Jan Kelly 36-45 Teacher
Certainly the best and most satisfying yoga classes I have
ever attended, giving a good understanding of what yoga can
JB Professional Potter 36-45
I really enjoy your yoga classes because you encourage me
to focus on moving my practice on in subtle but important
Arabella Ellis Business Psychologist Director OCG Limited.
I thoroughly enjoy the classes and feel relaxed, strong and
energised afterwards. Hugh is a very clear teacher and gives
just the right amount of instruction and information to instruct
and not confuse.
