Our Workshops

These workshops are an amazing way to learn a short AYM sequence to offer to family and friends, understand your own body more, and you also receive the sequence as part of the workshop! Offering AYM is also good for your own body and mind. We move gently, focus on the present moment, on our breath and on feelings of loving kindness. So, at the end we feel the benefits from an easy yoga session combined with a loving kindness meditation. The workshops are also a brilliant way to dip your toes into the technique and see if a longer training might be for you! 

Here's what you'll get:

  • One 4-hour in person workshop 
  • Access to our online learning space
  • AYM Introductory manual (PDF)
  • Video technique  tutorials from the day
  • Follow up resources 
  • CPD certificate on request

Jacqueline Lawrence

After receiving AYM over many years, Jacqueline qualified as a therapist in 2021. Ever since she qualified, Jacqueline has either attended or assisted with practically all of Despina’s Leeds based small group therapist trainings and workshops - of which there have been a lot! Jacqueline is a meticulous learner, and quickly became one our busiest therapists and our most experienced teaching assistant in the UK. She has also helped Despina to develop the therapist training manuals and videos. Jacqueline's sensitivity, awareness and ability to support different client and student needs as an AYM teacher has partly been developed through her previous 15 year career as a care and support worker. We have always received excellent feedback from students, as to how well Jacqueline can explain techniques, and how supportive and friendly she is as a teacher.
