Testimonials

Easily the best studio in the area, run by the most passionate and compassionate teacher in the area. I’ve been coming here for a long time now and I look forward to my sessions days ahead. I’ve been to all the other studios in the area, they just don’t compare. Walking into a new studio is daunting and intimidating – something I did last week again out of curiosity, and it just reminds me what a special space bex has created here. I’d always recommend her classes to anyone thinking of trying yoga for the first time. For me you need to feel supported, relaxed and trust that you’re being taken care of, even if that means the teacher lets you figure it out for yourself, I always get exactly what I need, and more at these classes with bex.

Having tried many times and not found a yoga practice previously, I took the beginners course a few months ago and it changed everything! Bex is the most wonderful teacher and she creates an environment that is safe and nurturing, which makes it easy to immerse yourself in the practice. We have worked in private sessions for sometime now and I feel so grateful to have found her as she has helped me find a yoga practice that suits me and works well to support me emotionally as well as enhance my weightlifting. I love our sessions and I wholeheartedly recommend Bex and the Free Spirit Studio. Both are special and very much unique.

Free Spirit Studio is my happy place! I have been going to yoga classes with Bex for about 10 months now, starting with the Beginners Yoga course and then continuing with Yoga For All classes. I cannot rate Bex highly enough as a yoga teacher, she is amazing! She has incredible in-depth knowledge of yoga and her passion for it really shines through. I love that she embraces the spiritual and mindfulness aspects of yoga practice. The studio is a haven from the outside world, with gorgeous incense burning and relaxing music playing during classes. I feel like I float out afterwards and it really helps me to switch off and re-set. 

I have also recently started Beginners Fitness Training with Hannah who, like Bex, is not only absolutely lovely but is an excellent teacher – always offering up encouragement and keeping us motivated. Hannah clearly knows her stuff and takes care to plan each session so that we are gradually incorporating more strength building exercises as the weeks progress. This course has been ideal for me as I was looking to get back into exercising after not having done anything for a few years, and I am now looking forward to continuing with Level 1 Fitness Progressions training with Hannah.

I am so happy I discovered Free Spirit Studio last year, it has had a hugely positive effect on my health and well-being. Part of the studio’s ethos is to only have small classes which really makes for a personalised and tailored experience. I’ve met some really nice people attending the classes too, everyone is so friendly. Massive thanks to everyone on the Free Spirit team! Xx

If you have ever struggled physically, mentally or emotionally, then you need to try Bex’s restorative yoga and meditation classes at Free Spirit Studio. 

Better than medicine! Better than counselling!

The Chakra journeying course was also wonderfully calming. Taught me how yoga is far more than just the body. It unites the mind, body and spirit. Gentle movements created peaceful, relaxing sessions whilst learning about the energy systems within us all and how we connect to the universe. Perfect ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I’ve been going to beginners yoga and monthly meditations. I get so much from the classes, for the first time ever I’m really getting what yoga is about and i can feel progression every time. It’s such a lovely place and I really look forward to Monday’s now! Victoria Holehouse.

I’ve never felt comfortable at a yoga class before. I came to free spirit studio and met Bex, She makes you feel so at home and welcome. A very local class for me as I only live up the road so it’s perfect. Bex is a Great teacher and is very knowledgeable. I’ve progressed quite a bit since october/November and i look forward to Monday evenings for some me time. Thoroughly recommend to all.  Anita Anderson

On my first visit to bex’s studio, I just new it was for me, she was very welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed which helped me to achieve what I went there for so I new I could go back without second thought, when I did go back it was for the best yoga session I have experienced, soft music, candles and a feeling of actually being able to switch off from the world. If it wasn’t for Bex I wouldn’t of transformed into the person i am today, 3 stone lighter and more confidence. Anna O’Callaghan 

The studio is so welcoming & friendly, the classes are really fun & aren’t too big so Bex is always on hand to help with your technique.
The yoga classes are lovely and relaxing, especially the ones by candlelight.
Bex really knows her stuff & she is willing to share her expert knowledge, I have learnt so much from her. She is energetic, fun & dedicated & her enthusiasm for health & wellbeing is contagious! I can’t recommend the studio enough!! Amy Stevens

Wow. I absolutely loved the good morning sunshine yoga. Such a relaxed, warm and welcoming studio and Bex was absolutely inspiring. I felt comfortable and at complete ease. I will be kicking off every weekend with this class in future and looking forward to the exciting workshops that are coming up. Natalie Cohen

I’ve just passed my halfway mark with Bex and can’t believe how much my fitness has improved and how much I enjoy each session. Bex is an excellent trainer, she is a naturally lovely and positive person with just the right amount of the sergeant majors in her :-). Each session is extremely hard work, but always different and always fun. She continually pushes you to be the best you can be and I’m personally looking forward to wearing my bikini this summer with pride. Gill Smeeton

After 3 months training with Becky I am amazed at how much stronger and more confident I am. I also realised what good fortune I had to get her as a trainer, as she pushes me, but never gives me more than I can manage and has a great sense of humour. In my 60s, I have discovered it is never too late to get back that sense of fitness and energy, and I look forward to every session. Thanks Becky! Heather Mackay

Bex is such a good PT – she really listens to what I want to focus on and uses that to motivate me and plan fun, challenging sessions. Bex is super positive and this evening’s session has left me feeling a little bit like jelly but empowered and proud. I’ve never worked this hard before and I love it -I’m looking forward to the pain tomorrow! Ruby Phillips

I followed Bex from her last place of employment, as she’s been revolutionary to my training, getting results when with my pro science training plans (so many over the years) had led to one plateau after another.  Today, personal training followed by hatha yoga, fabulous combination! Love the studio, it’s emphasis on functional training, and also surprisingly loving the yoga, I think it’ll improve my recovery and flexibility no end! Highly recommended!
Thank you Bex. Nik Kwint

Met Bex about 6 months ago when, due to weight gain and general lethargy, I realised I actually needed to finally face my fear of exercise/gym environments and get moving! Enter Bex… from the outset she understood where I was coming from and, with her motivation and gentle (but firm!) approach, she has changed a negative experience into a truly positive one. I now look forward to my PT sessions (with yoga as my reward!), in a lovely bright and calm studio… and am feeling good! Thoroughly recommended! Linda Bradford 

It was my first visit to the free spirit studio yesterday on the detox yoga workshop and such a great afternoon, Bex is brilliant and so motivating, a really lovely atmosphere. Thank you so much again, such a great studio! looking forward to my next class. Becky Wheeler 

Had a very enjoyable first time experience at the sunshine yoga class . Would highly recommend attending this yoga studio . Bex is a fantastic teacher 😃 David Keeton 

I went to the dynamic hatha yoga on thurs and really enjoyed it. Lovely atmosphere and i loved the content of the class. Just what i needed! It was energising but also relaxing and releasing. I felt very uplifted afterwards and when i got home i put my washing on which i rarely do on a thurs night after a long day at work! I love bexs fun, friendly and very knowledgeable approach. Going again this thurs! And have since used a few of bexs moves in my own practice! My daughter really enjoyed the class too! Nameste and thanks for this beautiful studio! It rocks! Xxx Kathy Lunn

I’ve just started doing yoga for all classes after doing the beginners course having had no experience of yoga at all.
Bex is amazing! She really knows what she’s talking about and her passion for what she does just shines through. A lot of the classes are done with your eyes closed so it feels much more personal and easier to focus on your own practice. I feel so at ease when I walk in to a class…the studio is a lovely little haven with the most relaxing atmosphere.
I’ve already noticed huge changes in myself in a small amount of time not just physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. Bex is so attentive and really cares about her clients. I can’t wait to continue my yoga journey and see the benefits

Sarah Moore


Feel so lucky to have found this little Gem! Never have I felt so welcome , relaxed but then absolutely dead from the most insane but rewarding exercise. Thanks Bex.

Nicole Ramsey

I’ve been doing the Monday afternoon restorative Yoga Class with Bex for the past two months now and everytime I leave the class I feel like all my worries have just lifted off me.  its the best way to start my week. I’d never heard of restorative Yoga before but I met Bex at a well-being event and she told me all about it so I thought I’d give it a go and I’m so glad I did.  it’s really good if you have any physical or mental health issues as its a very slow gentle type of yoga that involves a lot of peaceful meditation. I love that the classes are small and Bex makes everyone feel so welcome it’s like a little family!

Elizabeth Kaye

I’ve been going along to Free Spirit for a few months now, and I love it! 

I first started with the Beginners fitness course with Hannah and it was brilliant. It was a real confidence boost to get back into working out. Hannah is so down to earth and knowledgeable about fitness. 

After doing the beginners course I started attending her weekly Dancefit classes which I LOVE!! 

The music is brilliant and again Hannah makes the class such a laugh! It’s really enjoyable and I highly recommend it. 💃🏼 x
