Amy Lutton (@_roots_yoga)

Amy has practised Yoga for around 13 years. She qualified as a teacher in 2019. Since then, she has completed further 450 hours in training in Bali, India and London.

She loves getting into the nitty – gritty of postures. This means she incorporates movements beyond what your would see in a more traditional Yoga class. She uses intelligent sequencing to build in specific strength, flexibilit and mobility exercises to help unlock some of the more challenging postures.

Embracing what you have is part of Amy’s ethos, she believes that a lot of what holds us back is in our minds rather than our bodies.

She loves giving people the space to have a got at things that wouldn’t have normally, while equally encouraging people to take a step back if that’s what feels right too.

We strive to create a welcoming environment for everyone. Sharing a twin room is a great way to get to know someone a little better too. There will be lots to do outside of Yoga and Handstands so that we all get to know each other a little better

Will I be okay if I'm coming alone?

We strive to create a welcoming environment for everyone. Sharing a twin room is a great way to get to know someone a little better too. There will be lots to do outside of Yoga and Handstands so that we all get to know each other a little better

I can't do a handstand, can I still come?

Absolutely! The weekend will have three workshops dedicatetd to learning handstand – these will be mixed level classes with something to suit everyone.

Do I need to have done lots of Yoga before?

The Yoga sessions will be fairly physical, so a reasonable base strength and mobility will probably make it more enjoyable. However, the great thing about Yoga is that you can take or leave what yo  like; if you lie on your mat the whole time and no one will bat an eye-lid.
