I have been attending Greg’s classes now for over a year. I originally started going to help with my back pain as I broke my back in 1995 and had been suffering. Having had physio and cortisone injections to try and help, I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Greg’s classes have helped ease my back to the point that the pain has almost completely gone. Being a physical training instructor myself, I do try to push myself and during the yang classes I find it a real all over workout. Practising Yoga, I have found myself less injury prone and more robust in my work. Greg’s classes have made me realise how beneficial Yoga is, not only physically but also mentally and spiritually. The style of classes Greg takes, the atmosphere set and his choice of music, have all inspired me to go to Bali for a month to do a Yoga course. Thank you Greg for helping my back problem and enlightening me to the world of Yoga.
Greg is truly an amazing teacher in every way. His classes combine a fantastic workout , fabulous music, poignant stories and sayings, relaxation, fun, meditation and a touch of Gregory magic! I’ve been to many classes over the years and you will be pushed to find another like him. He is the combination of passion, belief and love for his discipline. Try his classes and you will feel the same!
My husband and I have attended Gregory's classes for the best part of 10 years now. He is a total inspiration and his classes are so much more than doing a bunch of postures. You leave feeling as though your entire being has been refreshed and renewed. His classes are completely different to anything else I have ever experienced since I started attending yoga classes 20 years ago. Thank you for all you do Greg 🙏
Gregory is an absolute inspiration for me. I started some 4 years ago as a complete novice, just giving yoga a go. Greg has inspired me, and I’m sure everyone in his classes, to love all there is about yoga. He is a magical teacher, wonderful calmness in every class, give yoga a go, you may be surprised that you need to do little else to stay fit in mind and body.
Greg's yoga classes have really improved my strength and flexibility. I tried yoga to improve core strength and to help with a lower back injury. It really works! I've been attending regularly and there’s been no recurrence of back issues. I'm more flexible and feel so much better in mind and body. The classes are a good mix of calm and more energetic styles. You're never under any pressure to be perfect and are encouraged to just to go with whatever you can do in the moment. You'll even get some wise words during the cool down. Beginners always seem to return the next week. Would definitely recommend.
Just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You’ for your brilliant classes. I know for sure that I wouldn’t be where I am today with my dodgy knee if I hadn’t been introduced to Yoga with you. Your encouragement and support, without you probably realising it, has been an enormous part of my rehab. Looking forward to many more Wednesdays on the Mat in 2020.
Coming from India I have been brought up with the philosophy and traditions of yoga. I am so impressed with the level of yoga you are teaching us, it is pure Bhakti. May the lord bless you.
I absolutely love your classes and can honestly say they have changed my life and I know that I am not alone in that thought.
I discovered your classes 4 years ago and have only missed a few due to sickness/holidays. They have become a very important part of my life and I really don't want to consider not attending them. What you do you do so wonderfully well and like no other. I'm sure I'm not alone with these sentiments.
Fabulous class last night. First time doing Yin Yoga and exactly what I needed.
Morning Greg, Thank you so much for a wonderful class last night. Just what the Dr ordered!!
Thank you for facilitating the practice last night. Tracy and I had a great time and it was nice to meet with you and Kate after hearing so many positive things about you over many years.
Hi Greg, loved your class last night. See you next week.
After seeing the commitment you have to your students and the number of people you must have helped over the years, I've decided I'm way too young and able-bodied not to do something outward facing for others. I just wanted to say the difference Yoga has made to my life is indescribable. You've got a place in my heart that is eternal.
Your classes have been truly enlightening. I have never been able to relax so completely in 60 years.
I just wanted you to understand that coming to your classes has made a huge difference to the way I think and feel about my health, my life and what’s important. The yoga and the philosophy has both challenged and helped me, and I need to do more of it and put myself first.
Greg, I want to say how great your yoga sessions are and that I highly recommend them to everybody. You create such a magical atmosphere in the room with incense, candles, ornaments, beautiful music, inspirational messages, and engaging yoga movements. The sessions take my mind, body, and spirit into a peaceful dimension. Thanks Greg for your dedication and for sharing your passion for yoga. I feel lucky and blessed to be part of your classes.
After sustaining a whiplash injury in January 2011, my left shoulder muscles were damaged and my right shoulder became very tense. For seven years I've been trying to release the tension in my right shoulder. Today, in your Yoga class, the tension went! It was a brilliant feeling!
I thank you for all your encouraging Yoga sessions that have finally enabled my shoulder to release, along with all the other benefits!
Your classes are still at the pinnacle of my Yoga experiences. Sadly tried a dozen other classes and instructors and simply unable to fill the Angell’s shoes!
After my first session with you I left feeling the most amazing sense of wellbeing. Not sure why, as I certainly couldn’t do everything, but regardless it was an incredible feeling and it lasted. I’ve also had a go of one of your DVDs which I really enjoyed and I shall keep it up.
So excited about your new class in Tilford, I’ve missed them. Other classes don’t match the awesomeness of yours!
The trial session has been more popular that I could ever have imagined. I’ve had people I don’t even know coming up and asking if they can join the next session. I honestly cannot believe how popular it is, I’ve had to turn people down as the next classes are already full!
Over the last 6 years I’ve periodically come to your classes. I noticed such a shift in your energy, difficult to verbalise! It’s been a couple of years since I last joined you and your yoga was amazing back then. Though the shift in energy I witnessed in you this time around has taken it to another level! You’ve transformed.
Something that can only come from a conscious effort to serve others, and more importantly yourself. Hope you don’t mind me sharing, just want you to know it’s visible and beautiful! Have a great Sunday! ?
Hello Greg, I just wanted to say thank you for your lovely yoga classes. Your encouragement and professionalism, combined with always ensuring the environment is perfect, makes for a wonderful experience.
You are an amazing teacher! I am a 62 year old woman with a bolt in her hip due to arthritis, which restricts movement in that area. Through your encouragement and guidance I persevered with your classes and have found that the restriction has eased enormously. I have never attended a Yoga class so profound and beneficial for the body, mind, and soul. Thank you!
As a judo black belt I first attended one of your yoga classes in April 2016 and I was amazed how dynamic and rewarding it was. I continued to attend every week and noticed my flexibility improved greatly. This is now improving my judo as I have a wider and deeper range of movement, especially with throwing techniques. I would recommend to anyone who practices a martial art to consider attending your yoga classes. Many thanks
Gregory, you are the best yoga teacher I’ve known. I have my alarm set every week to remind me to book into your class. Otherwise I run the risk of loosing my place, and I would not forgive myself if this happened!
Now I know why Sunday’s Yoga class is always fully booked!!! Because you are the teacher!!! You are the best teacher ever... thank you so much for your wonderful classes. Namaste ????♀️?♀️?♀️
Thank you ?
There is a quality about your classes that is immeasurable and invaluable. Words can’t convey. It’s a blessing to be able to enjoy them.
Loved the class today, thanks! It made me realise how much I miss being there live and feeling relaxed, inspired, and connected. Your classes always seem to set something in motion emotionally, energetically, as well as physically. Magical indeed. As I said, I might just move back here in a few years and you better still be teaching! ?
Another fantastic class today with lovely music, chanting, and stories ?
Honestly I thought it was such an amazing class and you are very skilled at chanting. It was an unexpected surprise and so pleasant. I hope to see you next Friday.
I find your classes ‘moving’! You made me love yoga after one class.
Since starting to practise Yoga in January of this year, I very quickly came to regret that I had not begun practising much earlier in my life, rather than leaving it until my late fifties to do so.
Although I found it challenging at first, I soon realised that it was within this perpetual state of challenge that the benefits of practising Yoga are found. It was the ‘counterintuitive’ revelation that applying varying degrees of discomfort to my body as I attempted some of the infinite variety of poses to be discovered in practising Yoga, that I actually freed up years inactivity in many parts of my body. Physical dormancy that I had allowed to settle into the sedentary state of perceived comfort brought on by my western life style.
I soon began to feel not only physical benefits, of which there were many, but also emotional ones as well. These began to form a virtuous circle, where the better I felt the more I wanted to practise, the more I practised the better I felt. We are all experiencing change whether we like it or not as we travel through life and now for me Yoga will help me direct that natural change for my benefit, rather than to my detriment.
Hi Greg, We've been in Spain where we have been using your yang DVD to practise. Much to my amazement Phill absolutely loves it and has decided to come to your classes - next week (I'm not sure how I feel about that?!).
While we were in Spain a friend from Perth (the Scottish one) also came and did the yang DVD class with us and (once she had more or less returned to her natural colour) said she enjoyed it and would like to buy both your DVDs.
Today was only my third Yin class with you and, although I am doing some Yoga at home along with your classes, I cannot believe the improvement in just four months of Yoga practice. I am much more comfortable in the poses which were agony at first!
Your classes are the 'sweet spot' of my week - every class has a different energy and I learn something new on the mat at every session. My heart felt thanks for your excellent teaching.
Yoga incorporates discipline, restraint, control, boundaries, balance and self-awareness that so many other approaches to exercise lack.
Aesthetically I put yoga right up there with the great movement arts like ballet, it’s beautifully graceful (even though one might feel a bit lumbering at times ?).
In short, everyone should be able to feel this good. Freeing themselves from the mental and physical restrictions of the ‘Western Symptoms Management Model’ and discovering, listening and fine tuning their own bodies and minds, making their own choices, in their own time, for true health.
I feel humbled to have found yoga. Thank you for teaching. Your class is welcoming, energising and insightful. You’re one of the best educators I’ve ever come across.
I felt amazing after the one to one yin yoga session we had last Saturday. I can’t believe I am actually pain free again after just one session. It’s incredible thank you so much. I’ve finally realised that the only way to prevent injuries and remain pain free is to practice yoga regularly.
Thank you for your brutally wonderful yoga class today!
When I joined the ‘Couch to 5K’ local group at the beginning of January they all told me you're never too old to run (I'm nearly 63!!). They appear to be right, although at week 5 my lower back and knees were really beginning to feel the pain. Someone in the running group recommended Gregory Angell and so I managed to make my first yoga class last Tuesday morning. I cannot believe it's taken me so long to find yoga again!
Over the years I've done many yoga classes, some ok, some rushed, some too crowded. Gregory's class was something else – a yoga class like no other I have ever experienced! Committing to just one of his sessions will have you hooked. My lower back pain has gone and I'm confident that the strengthening effects of yoga will help not only my knees but probably every muscle in my body. It might even be good for my mind!!
I've already recommended you to everyone else in the running group as they will need this at some stage. There is only one thing to say – thank you.
I don’t know whether I’m walking on air or completely knackered! A bit of both I think. So, Yin Yoga was a revelation! I never expected something so still, so non dynamic, would appeal to me, or challenge me, so much! I am constantly having to reassess my misconceptions. Just wanted to say thank you for such a great class.
The energy of yesterday’s class was so intense I felt as if it touched my soul. It was THE best yoga experience I have ever had, very hard for me to put into words. Today, I feel as light as a feather, I can't tell you how amazing I feel. What a travesty it would be if you were sat behind a desk in an office, thank goodness you are sharing your light with the world - it's such a privilege to be on this yoga journey with you. Your yoga rocks!!
Hello Greg, After one class I have instant relieve from my shoulder tension, amazing! I was surprised by how hard it was and how much energy was required but thoroughly enjoyed it.
A huge thank you for the yoga classes over the years. Your classes and you have been the inspiration for me to do Yoga Teacher Training in Goa.
Dear Gregory, Throughout the years I’ve been practicing yoga never have I come across a teacher like you. Your powerful presence coupled with the way you guide and suggest, rather than push and judge until I get it right, has been refreshing. It has enabled me to go deeper into my practice, far beyond merely executing a sequence of postures. I feel you embody the truth of your practice in a way that enables you to transmit deep wisdom and energy. Your classes make me laugh, cry, burst with energy, and always provide food for thought. I have experienced an opening in my body, mind, heart, and soul. Thank you for all the beautiful classes and inspiring me in so many ways (and your choice of music rocks!).
I have been coming to your yoga classes for a year now, I love yoga and it has made such a huge difference to my life. It has helped me in so many ways. I am a survivor of severe trauma and yoga has helped me connect and get back in my body. It has also helped me to live much more of my life in the wonderful present moment, rather than getting lost in memories and flashbacks from the past. This is something I have been trying to do for a long time, but yoga has really helped me put it into practise. I have tried other yoga classes in the past, but they have been just exercise classes really and your classes I feel offer so much more. Your classes work so well for me given my history and yoga has become a really important part of my healing so thank you.
The physical benefits alone have been astounding.
Thank you for your wonderful classes. What you give is most definitely beyond words.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed last nights yang yoga. I can't come to your classes nearly as much as I'd like to but I love every minute of them.
In life we occasionally come across little gems that touch our souls beyond understanding. Your Yoga classes in my World, reaches, releases, and relaxes my mind, body, and soul. Thank you.
Can't recommend Gregory Angell's Classes enough. His professionalism, knowledge, compassion, and deep practise is evident the minute you meet him. His classes are everything you'll ever need!
Dear Greg, Thank you for the wonderful and, at times, excruciating yoga sessions. Thank you for being there as I have been moving into a new phase in my life. I don’t know what the new phase is, but I feel it. I feel more myself somehow. Thank you for being a significant person in my transition. I can’t put into words why, but I feel it in my heart. Every time I catch myself thinking, ‘oh, I am going to miss Greg’s Yoga', I remind myself that things have a way of working out. I will go with the flow. Anyway keep in touch and keep me on your email list.
First and foremost I want to say that I thoroughly enjoy your class and look forward to it every week. I applause your inspirational approach. I am a neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapist and have been for over 25 years. I have also been practicing acupuncture for 20 years and teach Pilates.
I am not knowledgeable in yoga but I do know about bodies, especially my own. Due to you, your attitude, your knowledge and experience you have managed to inspire me to continue along my yoga journey for which I am very grateful.
Hi Greg, I keep meaning to email you and now I have completed 12 classes with you it feels like the right time. I LOVE YOGA! After 12 classes I can see an improvement in my flexibility, strength and confidence. I don't mind admitting that I was a little daunted after my first class but urge new comers to relax and come back the following week! It is all about the personal journey, in friendly and non intimidating surroundings. I love the stories you tell.
Thank you for making it so enjoyable.
I've been doing Yoga for probably 4 or 5 years on and off but I have never ever enjoyed it like I do in your classes, and have never felt so content in a class. I feel like I have finally started to understand Yoga for what it is and it has become a very important part of my life.
I go to other classes sometimes and they are fine, but they are never anywhere near as satisfying and relaxing (whilst being challenging) as your classes. I have told so many people how happy I am that I have finally found someone who can guide me in the ways of this magical practice and who I resonate with so much.
Thank you so much for guiding us so well and for being such an inspiration. I will find you wherever you are!
After 3 pregnancies (and bad posture) my back gave in. One day I (feeling sore) decided to take Gregory's class at my gym in February 2016 and after a year my life has changed. I no longer have the ongoing pain that I learned to live with. I have forgotten how it feels not to have pain on my lower back. Greg said, 'it's just the beginning' and yes every time I attend his class I feel that I am healing my back. One day after class I was in pain as I had pushed myself. I was doing so well, anyway the very next day my back felt amazing I do not know what happened. I must have unlocked something.
Gregory's classes are AMAZING, I love hearing the whispering of the new class participants saying of what amazing class Greg delivers. I think Greg's is a unique teacher and his classes are on another level to anything else I've encountered.
I really struggle with my mind wandering and not being able to stop thinking (in yoga and life in general!) and Greg's class last week totally changed that. The Sun Salutations took me into a semi-trance where my mind was totally in sync with my body. It wasn't at all a conscious process, I only realised afterwards that I had been in the most meditative place I've ever been, ever. My mind was totally clear and calm and I know because I didn't even realise it!
The other thing I felt after the class was total ‘openness’. It’s the best way I can describe it. It was both a physical and mental sensation as though my chest and heart were uplifted and open. I didn’t realise how ‘closed’ I must have been (stooped, shrunken etc – carrying all my stress in my shoulders, neck and chest) until the incredible openness I felt after Greg’s class. I felt 100 times lighter. Had no idea you could experience this sort of transformation after one class. Thank you Greg.
Slept like a baby last night. Jumped out of bed like a kid this morning too!
Woke up this morning feeling like a million dollars. Thanks Greg, brilliant class.
Greg’s yoga classes are the perfect answer to active meditation, I love his strong flow, the Yin is always the perfect aid to a good night’s sleep and he always educates the class about the body whilst we rest in the poses. I have learnt a lot from him from the importance of a healthy body and mind set and how to strive to achieve it.
Elliot loved it. He said on Thursday it was the most calm he had felt in a long time! The effects lasted all night and all day!
I started your yoga classes nearly 2 months ago at Sindlesham (tall guy, age 53) as a way of recovering from a shoulder injury. My shoulder is now fine. I absolutely love your classes and have recently started to practice at home. Thank you so much for everything both body and mind!
Dear Greg, Thank you for another magical class last night. My life has taken such a positive turn over the last 6 months and it's partly because I've been coming to your classes.
Hi Greg, Hope you are well. Just to let you know my hip is back to normal. It's crazy but those few stretches you gave me to do keep it pain free. Many thanks again.
To enjoy the benefits of a steady, strong and consistent hatha yoga practice is INEVITABLE. To find a steady, strong and consistent hatha yoga teacher – is ESSENTIAL. A good teacher of hatha yoga breathes life into this ancient practice, and inspires the yoga practitioner along the way. Gregory Angell is one of those exceptional teachers of hatha yoga.
I came to your weekend beginner session on Saturday and thought it was amazing. Thankyou!
I'm so lucky to ever have discovered your sessions!
I grew up in Punjab, India. On a clear day, I could see the snow-filled Himalayas. In the winter time, when there was too much snow on the mountains, some sadhus/practitioners used come to the warmer weather in Punjab. My dad used to provide shelter, normally a flimsy looking handmade hut under a tree, for them and spend a lot of time with them. My dad used to say to me 'as you grow up find time to talk with these guys. Through Yoga they can teach you how to look after your body and mind'. I was young and did not take any note of what my dad said.
Now I am 68 years old and was hit with depression a few months back. My doctor advised me to seek ways to relax my mind and body. I decided to join Yoga and Tai Chi class. Gregory taught Yoga in one of the classes. I had practised Yoga before at home using a DVD and the teacher in the DVD says 'a DVD is not a replacement for Yoga teacher. You must seek one out'. At the end of my 1st Yoga class with Gregory I felt that I have found my teacher. Now, I look forward to Gregory’s Yoga class every Thursday morning.
Gregory is the best Yoga teacher that I have come across. Not only is he humble, sincere, generous and kind .... he knows what he is doing. He has changed my life through Yoga. I have got my life back. I wish I had acted upon my dad’s advice earlier in my life and started practicing Yoga. Anyway, it's never too late.
Gregory’s classes full every week. Everybody I speak to, they all 'love it'.
