"If you are looking for a yoga class, I can thoroughly recommend Lotus Leaf Yoga. Fran Keeley, the instructor, is a lovely warm person who puts everyone at their ease and teaches to all levels and abilities. The classes are relaxed, friendly and you work at your own pace. I personally have benefited enormously from attending and I am much more flexible and experience less joint and muscle pain than when I began a year or so ago."

"I can highly recommend Fran's class. She is very professional, patient and above all: nice!"
"Thank you for the practice last Tuesday, as I had to miss the last
practice of last term I was so glad to go back my little bit of me
time. I love the challenges every week(my muscles certainly knew they'd been challenged this week) and the oasis of calm you create."
"Thank you so much for another lovely yoga class last night. As usual I came away feeling de-stressed and relaxed after a very busy day in the office. I have to say over the weeks and months I have been coming to yoga practice with you I feel much calmer, relaxed and more confident in myself which has had such a beneficial effect on my home and work life. It’s all down to you and your wonderful, calming style and manner of teaching – it just clicks with me and I’m sure with the rest of the groups you teach. I thought you should know the positive effect you have :)"
"I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed the first session of the beginners course."
"The Yoga for Life Beginners Course is run by Fran Keeley - a lovely warm guide who breaks down every pose and movement so that you learn how to do it RIGHT depending on your own level - it's a perfect introduction. It's refreshingly relaxed and Fran takes her time to help you get to grips with this gentle yet fulfilling ancient practice. I'm not related (really!) but have been enjoying her classes for two years now. Thoroughly recommend her. "

" What I like about the class is that I don't feel pressured in any way, I am aware that I am not as strong as the others but I have 20 years on most of them so couldn't expect to be. I like that I can stop when necessary without feeling awkward and start again when I am ready...I am enjoying the class, I feel that it's beneficial to me and I hope it will make me more supple in time. I'm happy with the class and I hope to continue."
