A selection of testimonials from participants.
“I have been coming to yoga with Alexandra Jones for three years now, the students vary from fit sports enthusiasts to retired people keeping fit and flexible. There is no competitive atmosphere, we all get on well, there is quite a camaraderie . The classes are small enough so Alexandra keeps a good eye on us, taking some people further into postures and helping others tread carefully if they are recovering from injury or have aches or pains.
There is no Lycra here! I had been doing yoga for many years before attending her classes but I am astonished how my flexibility has developed, and my back is so much better. I like the way if I have to miss my regular class I can call her and join one of her other classes so I do not miss my practice. I would recommend this yoga to anyone, I wish I had found Alexandra years ago, also the floor is carpeted, so warm and comfortable to practice on!”
“How do I love it, let me share the ways…
For the utter contentment which accompanies it.
For that total release of everything that accompanies it.
For the soothing effects on body and mind that accompanies it.
For that wonderful calm and reassuring voice that accompanies it.
For the room full of people who I know feel just the same…
Thank you Alix, it’s all due to you”.
I love your yoga classes and the today’s session was sensational for me. I have got rid of the pain in the hands with this shaking and the following exercises . I felt truly relaxed and refreshed, like newly-born…. thank you!

“Alix your classes are truly life changing, thank you.”
“Alix is a truly incredible yoga teacher. The classes are warm, welcoming you always feel comfortable, she caters for all abilities, look forward to it every week!”
“Doing Yoga with Alix helped me to recover after two hip operations and has improved my balance, flexibility and mind”
“One of the beautiful things about the classes at the wheel of life yoga center, with Alix is the diversity and acceptance that every body can do yoga. I think many people, myself included have felt that yoga is only for young, slim, toned bodies and have felt self conscious and out of place in classes where this body type dominates. The Wheel of life yoga classes attract people of all shapes and sizes, abilities and ages, because we feel safe, welcome and included.”
‘Having a body which now will not allow me to do everything that I ask it to, due to arthritis, but at the same time my mind still wanting it to behave like a twenty year olds, I can honestly say that I always feel better, more flexible and at peace with the world having attended one of Alix’s classes.
Alix is in her element both teaching, and in her own unique way, caring for her yoga students. This is evident in her empathy towards each pupil, and together with her enthusiasm to expand her own knowledge and pass on her expertise to us, her students, a varied program evolves for both body and mind. Alix gently encourages each student to get the most out of their practice according to their individual ability/needs.
Thank you for your haven of peace Alix!’
“I have learnt more about my body than in any other class or treatment in Alix’s yoga class. It has become an essential part of my life, sanity, unwinding and spiritually. Alix’s use of her voice is like velvet, she is an amazing teacher, at the top of her game.

“This is a different kind of yoga, going into our bodies, giving time and space for our bodies to extend and find their way into new places. There is no forcing, but it is never the less challenging, and I feel afterwards, as if my body-mind has had a workout like a spring being re-energised.
“My body feels that it has unfolded like an opening of a flower”
“Yoga classes with Alix are so much more than healthy exercise and relaxation. I leave them revitalized on every level of body mind and spirit”
“I have been going to Alex’s classes for over 10 years.
I could see from the first class I attended that Alix is passionate about her yoga as this comes out in her yoga teachings.
As a fibromyalgia sufferer I was a little nervous about being able to do yoga, but I soon found that she put me at ease as she is understanding of any individual health problems that her students have.
I have improved immensely from her breathing, meditation, Relaxation, and yoga techniques, this has been a great benefit for me. Alex’s classes are so peaceful and refreshing for your body mind and soul, I would recommend her classes to anyone. Many thanks to a lovely lady.”
