Many thanks for sharing your knowledge, kindness and generosity with me and other yogis. I’ve always admired how much attention and detail you put into your newsletters, and thought that you must be a great teacher. I was not wrong. I enjoyed my first class with you last Friday and felt so good. I am a Buddhist myself and my first impression of your class was that of stepping into a temple where I feel such serenity and peace.
Thank you for empowering me and others with the knowledge of this beautiful practice. I have found out so much from you about the meaning of yoga as a philosophy and practice.
I just want to say how much I enjoy your classes. Physically, they’re amazing. Emotionally and energetically they’re so uplifting and expansive. Thank you.
I could gush for ever about how fantastic Greg’s classes are. The benefits I’ve experienced are nothing short of transformational on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. I wouldn’t have believed it if someone told me,
which is why you should try it for yourself.
A very big thank you for yesterday’s workshop. Truely an amazing time. I experienced many new aspects of a yoga practice. It was fantastic. I have never attended a workshop like this. All the emails you sent prior to the evening prepared me immensely. I learnt a lot from your words and experience. I have been one of those people who have taken the postures as the most important part of my practice. However I have learnt the importance of the breathing aspect more and more in recent times. The chanting and meditation is something I am open to, but need to practice this more as I find them challenging. So to hear you say you also found this in the beginning was very refreshing and reassuring. Thank you again Greg for giving me an amazing yoga experience, which I was able to take away with me.
Thank you for today’s class, it was amazing. I came out feeling like a completely different person. It was transformational. The playlist was amazing too!
Wow!!! Today’s workshop was absolutely Amazing. I just loved it. Fell asleep a few times, I can tell you! Felt emotional too with your lovely music. I enjoy your classes so much. They are so very unique. I think that is why I have always enjoyed them so much.
Huge thanks for all the wonderful classes I’ve been to this year, I find your classes incredibly inspiring, creative, challenging and absolutely fulfilling in every sense. I find they compliment my meditation practice really well and offer a totally different dimension.
I stumbled into this class by chance. During the first session Greg said something like 'without discipline and commitment nothing is ever going to improve' which must have resonated somewhere within me. So I made a commitment to myself to attend regularly. Five years later I’m still here and loving every class.
I still can't do every pose and can't balance on my left leg, but who cares. Greg has taught me that it's not about what you can't do, it's about focusing on what you can do.
It's my time. Time to be quiet and still, to stop and listen. I've benefited so much from the sessions and am so glad I made that commitment to stick with it.
I have learned so much and am very grateful to Greg for his continued encouragement and professionalism.
My yoga journey has been an incredibly subtle but transformative one. Fifteen years ago I nearly lost my life from a serious respiratory infection. Whilst in recovery I was traveling in South East Asia and decided to take up yoga. The teacher mentioned that he’d been a chronic asthmatic and had managed to greatly improve his breathing through yoga. I was sceptical as a family member had lost their life from an asthma attack. I was willing to try anything because I’d been so ill; completely incapacitated to the extent of ending up in a wheelchair. I now know how much my body needed yoga. My journey has made me aware of the importance of emotional, mental and physical balance in order to lead a more healthy, contented and spiritual existence. Because of your holistic approach, attending your classes has been the best part of this journey. All I can say is a HUGE thank you and I look forward to continuing with my lifelong yoga journey.
I would like to say how much I enjoy your classes. I have been practicing yoga for a long time now. I started in the early 70’s with Richard Hittleman (on tv). I have loved yoga ever since. In all these years I have attended so many yoga classes, none as inspiring as yours. I have gained such strength/flexibility and leave each class calm and grounded. Thank you.
I was resistant about yoga for a while. I found it quite difficult because my skeletal system was out of balance. I then found Greg Angell! He is the most amazing yoga teacher for many reasons. His classes are about so much more than yoga postures! He takes time to prepare e.g. Plans beautiful music, prepares the room well in advance of class, and shares powerful wisdom and philosophy to make you think about what's important in life. He will always encourage you to listen to what your body is telling you, not to push yourself, as we are all unique. Every week is different! I now recognise the power of yoga and why it is so important. I love Greg’s classes, it makes my membership at Nirvana Spa so worthwhile. My health has improved so much. Despite the class challenging me, I know it’s a must in my weekly schedule. I would highly recommend Greg’s classes! His standard of class and teaching is a cut above because of the time, effort and dedication he puts into them. Thank you Greg for being an amazing yoga teacher! Namaste!
I attended Greg's classes sporadically before my son Nye died. I really enjoyed them and felt I had had the best possible introduction to Yoga. Nye's death (a traumatic accident) sent me into shock, followed by such physical and mental pain I was struggling to breathe. Greg reached out when the time was right, he helped to ease me back into my Yoga saddle. He has gifted me with a very precious tool kit for surviving child loss. You should read that sentence again, it's a massive statement! I've practised in my own way for the past 4 years and included little rituals that literally carry me and my wonky heart through the relentless cycles and squiggles of grief. He has kindly (as is his way) gifted me his online classes and they are MAGNIFICENT and I'm using the full weight of the word. I urge you to give it a go, whether you're a seasoned Yogi or a novice, his way of teaching is gentle, enlightening, supportive, and encouraging. Just do it, please. It might just change your life, it did mine. Thank you Gregory Angell ... forever grateful.
The online experience is so slick! Excellent, professional, humble, dynamic.. dead good. Well done you.
Thank you so much for your openness and willingness to let us, your yoga students, ride on your waves of discovery for physical, mental and emotional well being.
I’ve just completed my first online session with you. Oh my goodness, I have missed everything about the way you teach. I thought I would just do my ‘own thing’ during lockdown. Oh dear.......
I’m glad to have reconnected with your great encouragement and support.
I am so pleased I was told about your online classes. When I log onto a class I feel as if I am going into my calm space. It is wonderful. The combination of both energetic and more relaxing sessions, also the invaluable tutorials that give the chance to focus on the detail of a particular movement or posture. And I appreciate how I can choose a short 20 minute practice, or lose myself in a 90 minute one. Thank you for putting together such a well thought out programme of online yoga. The quotes and wise words you share with us are inspiring too!
I was only saying recently that you are the only teacher I have met that takes time to explain all the finer details. It makes the postures so much more accessible and enhances all of the benefits. I think all of us who have been following your sessions throughout lockdown will be in far better shape for the experience. So thank you.
I have taken part in your classes for more than 4 years. I felt stiff and unconnected at the beginning but didn’t give up. Then lockdown changed my routine and I prioritised many other tasks, forgetting all about the huge benefits of my yoga practice. Now I have joined your online class and can only ask myself: Why didn’t I join straight away? Thank you for your excellent guidance. I feel relaxed and refreshed and finally I can let go of my worries 🙏👍💓
I feel we’re privileged to be enjoying the practice of guided yoga by a dedicated practitioner in the comfort of our own homes especially during these challenging times. Without these I know that I’d have struggled to cope.
Thank you. Your online sessions are a joy.
The online sessions are all amazing! So pleased!
Thank you so much for the time, knowledge and experience your pouring into Yoga Online. It is really appreciated. Love being guided by you.
Absolutely loved yesterday’s online session of gentle yang.
I wanted to say I’m really loving the online yoga classes. I am especially enjoying the variety and the articles to read alongside. It’s always changing, but yoga is bringing me a lot of comfort at the moment and it has become such an important part of my self-care. The music you sent me is awesome, I think I will use it a lot and my 7-year old son loves the yang music. He has been doing sun salutations too. Anyway, from my heart thank you,
Today, after a month of practice with your classes, I started to feel I was making some progress, mentally and physically and with my breathing. So thank you.
Thanks again for the generosity you are showing through your online classes, tutorials and articles.
Thank you so much for all your time in putting together your online yoga sessions. It is just like being back in class with you all.
I really appreciate your effort to provide us with such excellent sessions.
Keep up the amazing work. It’s been so easy and seamless and freeing to be able to attend classes online during these strange times.
As I've said before, I'm really enjoying your online classes and gaining a lot. The difference I find with your classes compared to the other teachers I have tried since you is the way you combine the physical with the mental and spiritual. I've actually noticed my blood pressure is lower since I restarted your practice!
I just wanted to say thank you for being so generous with your online classes, tutorials, and articles.
The online classes are a great idea! I used to be able to do only one class a week, now i have the chance to do yoga at least two times a week!
Hope you are well, for someone who was too self conscious to come to your classes having the opportunity to do them at home in my own space is amazing. I feel really refreshed. Thank you.
The online class are great. I already feel looser, so really happy so far. An affordable, adaptable service, personalised to feedback!
I have two young children and am not particularly local to your class location. The online classes have not only enabled me to practice more at a time that fits around family life but also my confidence in yoga has grown. I have gained so much from the online sessions so a huge thank you from me.
Brilliant 45 minute online class Greg, best one yet. You got it right, I felt like I had done a workout, felt grounded and peaceful and ready for the day ahead.
So thank you.
I value your teaching so much. There’s not another like you. Your classes always enable me to find my practice, my way, as opposed to conforming, doing it right. It’s liberating. And truly, thank you for making it so affordable.
I'm really loving having your classes available online, they keep me sane, thank you! Keep up the great work.
Thank you so much, I am really enjoying your online sessions. I have two little children, so it has always been difficult to attend your classes but with the flexibility of doing them from home I am able to practice everyday.
I just wanted to say that this one was amazing. I am not as supple as I thought I was! Thank you for the ongoing support and tutorials.
Thank you so much for the online classes. You were right it has been made so beautifully simple to access them.
I loved the online classes. A good balance of guidance for beginners and still being suitable for more experienced practitioners. I thought the production values were good. I enjoyed the setting, framed by the sculptures, some of which I remember from your classes. In short it was excellent and I'm so glad you have taken this step.
I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to see and hear you again. Please keep up the good work. Your online classes are a life saver for me. thank you.
I attended the yoga online session and enjoyed it. The peace of it, clear instructions and sound was great.
For a first class online I thought it was brilliant! I found the class ran smoothly, was well paced and I felt like I was in the room. Honestly it was like a live class, even a private lesson. Well done Greg!
Hi Greg, The combination of yoga classes, tutorials, and the deeper insight into the philosophical side of yoga is truly inspiring. During this particularly difficult time your online offering is bringing the value of humanity to the forefront
Downloaded your 'Power Hour' video last night and did it this morning. It's brilliant! I've really missed your classes since moving away but it was like you were in the room with me. Loved the sequence of different postures and appreciated your guidance - it was always well timed and reminded me how to hold my body correctly. Some of them felt challenging but I know with practice I'll feel progress. For now it was just wonderful to get back into yoga with an instructor I trust. The quality of production was excellent and I loved the soundtrack too. I feel ready to start my day, thank you!
I can't recommend Greg Angell yoga highly enough. I have been doing Greg's unique classes for over 2 years now, starting as a complete novice but feeling the benefits in fitness, flexibility and mindfulness immediately. Greg is highly professional and dedicated to his work. Try it even if you have never done yoga before!
Greg's classes have been part of my life for a while now and I am all the better for them both physically and mentally. There is nothing pretentious about them (massive plus for me), you work at your own pace and ability and you leave feeling ready to handle whatever the world throws at you. The cost is really reasonable, the class age mixed and the music is great. Unlike other sports all you need is a mat (and even they are provided if needed!). Best 1 1/2 hours of 'you time' out there.
Greg is a unique and gifted teacher and attending his classes allows you to experience yoga both as a physical and spiritual practice. It is a privilege but also a commitment. As a runner I have found myself less injury prone and more resilient to both my sport and my life in general. Greg makes you feel welcome and there is always a great feeling in his classes. I for one would highly recommend these classes and while there are lots of alternatives in the local area with far more classes, he is the real deal.
Greg, You were my first yoga teacher and made my introduction to the practice very welcoming. There was no anxiety at all about ‘not being able to do it’ .... as that it is not what it’s all about. Your classes are fabulous: thoughtful, dynamic, proper workouts without being in anyway intimidating. I especially like the sound tracks! You remain my favourite yogic guide.
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'.
