About us

The word ‘AMALA’ translates to ‘tree’ in Sanskrit and ‘hope’ in Arabic. Here at AMALA we have a growth mindset which focuses on holistic wellness.

Our mission:

To promote healthier communities by connecting people through yoga, meditation, mindfulness and gentle movement.


AMALAwellness was born in 2019 when Aimee (Director and founder) was asked to look after her friends Yoga Class. She really enjoyed teaching and it inspired her to set up more classes locally within Teesside. When Covid-19 struck, Aimee took her classes online, continuing to keep people in Teesside active, meditating and with a sense of community during the numerous lockdowns.

When lockdown eased, Aimee took her classes to local community centres, church halls and studios throughout Teesside and AMALAwellness was born.

Aimee teaches over 150 students inspiring them to improve their flexibility, mobility, strength and aerobic fitness of all abilities, with a focus on those with limited mobility or a need for gentle exercise.
