" I saw Gabriele a number of times during my first pregnancy for reflexology. She has a holistic approach and also gave me some personalised yoga and meditation advice during the sessions depending on the aches and pains or worries I was having at the time. I believe that this was definitely a contributing factor towards my straightforward labour for which I required minimal pain relief." - Dr. Anna Mustill -
"Gabriele Steen is a truly inspirational yoga teacher. She painstakingly ensures that any health problems that a student may suffer (I have back and knee problems) are taken into consideration in the movements they practise. Now my body and movements are supple and my back and knees are so very much better." - Angela S. -
"I always look forward to Gabriele’s yoga class. It enables me to maintain my fitness & flexibility; especially important as one gets older. Gabriele is very patient and treats each person as an individual, recommending different approaches to postures, depending on the ability of the student." - Veronika S. -
""I can thoroughly recommend Gabriele's weekly yoga classes. She is a gifted teacher who responds with consideration to the individual needs of her pupils and creates a calm and inspiring atmosphere in her classes. An essential boost to one's well-being!" - Lynda W. -
"I have been practising yoga for more than 30 years and have met a number of teachers in that time. Gabriele is to my mind the very best. Her mind and body are so perfectly balanced that spending time with her is a calming and soothing experience I look forward to each week. I only wish she held more classes in my area!" - Margaret J -
"I have been attending Yoga classes and retreats with Gabriele for many years now. I find her classes challenging and relaxing all at once. Her knowledge of mind, body and spirit and how that runs along-side yoga and a balanced life-style is vast. I would highly recommend her classes to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable teacher" - Sandy Stanton -
My fundraising eventsThis year's Christmas fundraising is in aid of Full Circle Fund Therapies Children's Appeal. For a tiny, traumatised baby in intensive care who has just received another painful medical procedure, to be soothed within minutes by the nurturing therapy of one of Full Circle therapists is invaluable. For that therapist to teach the parents how to help soothe their child provides them with another vital skill to maintain the essential bond between child and parent. There is growing evidence that supportive therapy interventions such as infant massage for hospitalised babies has a positive impact on symptom relief, improving the ability to cope with the distress and anxiety of their illness.
