Starting a new Journey…

People decide to come to Yoga & Meditation classes for a vast array of different reasons.

From weight loss, to improving flexibility, strength, feeling a sense of community to alleviating the symptoms of stress and anxiety.

A comprehensive list of things needed to start your yoga journey can be found here.

Why is AMALAwellness good for beginners looking to practice Yoga?

Aimee has had a regular practice since 2013 and a daily practice since 2017.

She has over 470 hours of Yoga teacher training and professional development, with bodies such as Yoga Alliance , FABS, EMDUK, Move it or Lose it! and Yoga Alliance Professionals.

Experience and Knowledge

Aimee’s practice has grown with her. When she first started Yoga, she couldn’t touch her toes and suffered with anxiety. Yoga and meditation had such a positive effect on her life, that it transformed her physical and mental health. Aimee quit her 9-5 job as a Scientist to travel and practice Yoga around the world. Upon return to Teesside, she decided to set up her own business to teach people the tools she has learnt from her teachers and on her travels to help people transform their physical and mental wellbeing.

Aimee has ran 6 Week Beginners Courses with local Studios in Teesside and knows how to accommodate for all levels within a class.

Aimee is also trained in teaching Yoga and Gentle Exercise for Mobility, as well as experienced in teaching seniors and Yoga in studio and gym settings. Aimee has progressed in her practice, studying and learning from an array of experienced teachers from all over the world. Aimee has a range of knowledge and experience which means whatever your ability or goal, she can cater for you.

Reflections on being a beginner and a focus on progression….


Remembering what it felt like to be a beginner, Aimee always take a holistic approach to practice. Movement is important for both physical and mental wellbeing, but at AMALAwellness we focus on philosophy and meditation to teach Yoga in its entirety.

Aimee always explains postures, breathwork and meditation techniques to make sure that the practice is suitable for beginners and helping improvers to advance.

More than just a gym class…



Meditation, gentle breathwork and philosophy are intertwined with a phyiscal asana practice. This makes the practice suitable for beginners and improvers, with postures differentiated for those looking to improve their postural practice.

A focus on Community, with a fun, light-hearted and friendly atmosphere…

Classes always have a community feel, where people feel welcome. We focus on inclusivity and believe community and a non-judgemental space where people can enjoy practice should be at the fore-front of lessons.

We also practice meditation and relaxation techniques, allowing the mind to practice being still and peaceful.

    I love this! Yoga is a great practice, but you really do need guidance, especially in the beginning. Otherwise, you’ll almost certainly learn it doing poses that just aren’t correct.

    1. So true Kuntala, correct alignment is important. 🙂

  2. Ivan Jose says:

    I like that there is a beginner’s yoga. It’s not too intimidating for those like me who’d like to acquire this discipline.

  3. Your classes seem like so much fun. I have started working out again and slowly adding yoga again. I look forward to the process. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Glad to hear you are starting to get more active Nikki. Let me know of your progress!

  4. I really need to get back to yoga. It did wonders for my nerves years ago!

  8. Agnes Dela Cruz says:

    I tried going to yoga classes before the pandemic, I miss my classes there. My main goal is having that deep meditation I needed.

  9. crisshex88 says:

    I have recently started this journey and I must admit that I am very excited about it to find out more!

    I don’t do yoga but I’m seeing lots of people who are doing it. I know that it has different benefits so I have to try lol – Amalia

  12. I wish we have this kind of physical exercise. Yoga, the was I see it, will promote flexibility.

  13. knycx says:

    I practiced yoga on a daily basis and I would love to encourage more people practicing it too! Thanks a lot for posting this and hopefully, it will draw many people’s attention.

  14. Sarah B. says:

    I love yoga, I started doing it because of my back pains. Now, I do it on my own regularly to help me relax and focus.

  15. thanks for sharing this inspiring & motivating about beginners yoga, I’m believing in it as I also started myself from beginner yoga

  16. I have been incorporating more yoga into my workouts to help with my muscle and joint pain. Absolutely love it.

    1. It is great for helping to alleviate joint pain! Lovely to hear it is helping.

  17. I have been trying to learn yoga, as past few months I have gained a lot of weight and life has become sedentary. These classes look really good.

    1. I think we have all suffered from becoming more sedentary. Hope you continue to learn 🙂

  18. Khushboo says:

    Yoga is really very good for the overall body. I lobe doing yoga too.

  19. rhianwestbury says:

    It’s so good that yoga had such a positive impact on you. Like you before you started yoga I can’t touch my toes so I definitely need to give it a go x

    1. Let me know when you can touch your toes Rhian! It happened quite quickly with a regular practice for me 🙂

  20. aisasami says:

    I love practicing yoga because the positions are fun to do but good for my health. And I get to relax at the end!

  21. marcellinamaria says:

    Sounds like a great yoga class! I’m attending yoga class too here, and it so much fun, so refreshing!

  22. Polly says:

    I would definitely encourage people to do yoga. I do pilates and yoga – people tend to see Pilates as Yoga. Most of the time I switch between both as yoga uses the body to connect with the mind and the inner self. Pilates uses mindfulness to connect to the inner workings of the body.

  23. Roshanna21 says:

    I love the idea of yoga, i think it has a lot of physical and mental benefits and is something I’m interested in trying !

  24. I have just started doing yoga. I have really bad knees so I have started slow and have been doing chair yoga to get me started.

  25. This sounds like it will be great and really beneficial for those who join! I really need to find a good yoga class near me – if only you were nearer!

    1. I’d love to have you in class Rebecca 🙂
