ABOUT AMY

Hello I’m Amy! Thank you for stopping by. Here’s a little about me and No More Shoulds.

I am a mindfulness and yoga teacher on a mission for kinder, healthier minds and to lose ‘should’ for good, both in practice and in life. A special interest in yoga for mental health recovery and post-traumatic growth has brought a simplicity and openness to my practice, promoting choice, agency and acceptance in every class – qualities I believe benefit everyone, regardless of their background, for a calmer, more peaceful everyday existence.

With personal experience of the healing powers of mindfulness, I developed a long-lasting personal meditation practice and trained to teach under internationally-renowned mindfulness expert, Shamash Alidina. My mindfulness practice led me to yoga. Rather than starting from the physical postures, my yoga practice started with the goal of stilling the mind. I soon learned that this is much less a goal to be strived for, than the inevitable, beautiful product of just showing up on the mat, letting go of expectations and seeing what flows.  

I run regular mindfulness courses for those who would like a calmer, more resilient mind, and weekly yoga classes in Witney, South Leigh, Eynsham and Bampton, Oxfordshire.

Schools & Education

Alongside a lifelong interest in wellbeing and mental wellbeing, I read languages at Oxford University, before embarking on a career in educational & assessment publishing and research.  I now bring all three passions together to offer wellbeing and stress reduction workshops for schools (both children and staff) around Oxfordshire and for global educational media.

Media

I contribute regularly to the wellbeing pages of lovely publications such as Good Housekeeping and Prima, and am the resident mindfulness expert for national radio show, The Wellness Hour. Keep an eye out 🙂 

I live in a village in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with my husband, my two young daughters, and Molly the cat and Daisy the dog.

I am a fully accredited member of the Society of Holistic Therapists and Coaches and a registered 200hr RYT with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
