Some of the wonderful things people say about Sayeeda and her classes
Sayeeda is an amazing yoga teacher…I’ve been going to her classes for a couple of years and fully recommend giving her classes a go! Sayeeda is welcoming and enthusiastic to teach, often bringing something new and varied to her classes. I love that Sayeeda personalises her teaching offering alternative postures and small adjustments tailored to ability and energy levels. I’m grateful for the benefits Sada’s classes provide and always look forward to them each week, thank you, Sayeeda
Life-changing teaching. Help’s to keep past in the past. Sayeeda will equip you with tips, and advice on how to improve focus. She’s great at recommending actually helpful readings. If you need to work on shapes or just want to improve mobility she is a pro. Certainly, the most important teacher that happened to me during my lifetime. I was 104 kg of weight, mentally destroyed years ago.
Now people say I walk like a dancer.
Can there be a bigger compliment after years of hardship? 5/5
Top class yoga instructor. Sayeeda has a wealth of knowledge and is way above the rest of the competition in Weston. Professional and well-structured classes that are always first class.
My exercise regime for years was almost ‘full on’ aerobic workouts, and then just recently I started Yoga sessions with Sayeeda, I must say her classes are excellent, most professionally delivered, and always challenging! I always leave feeling that I’ve worked hard, and benefited both physically and mentally.
I am slowly feeling more flexible, and my balance improving (slow progress!), I always look forward to attending her classes… my one regret is that I didn’t start Yoga much sooner. I would strongly recommend Yoga lessons with Sayeeda 😊
I wouldn’t be without Sada’s classes. I started a couple of years ago and wish I’d done it sooner. For me, they’re key for managing knee and back pain (through keeping a strong core) and for a couple of hours a week, it gives me to focus on the practice and not work or the daily grind. It’s a very friendly and welcoming environment too!
Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their health or well-being.
I was in rehab in the early stages of recovery from the symptoms of a life of trauma – An addiction to Alcohol, Crystal Meth and Sex.
I was abstinent, I was working through some challenging memories and traumas. Some days I felt like breaking down and crying for no apparent reason, I was facing emotions I had been avoiding for over 30 years. I needed some timeout from this, from the process, from my internal “washing machine brain”
I was struggling to follow the advice that mindfulness would work – I could not stop my brain from over thinking and analysing, the paranoia of this new environment I had staggered into sharing my living space – having isolated myself for the past 10 years with a pipe and the occasional visitor – it was over whelming!
I was willing to try anything and so signed up for every activity offered by the first-class rehab centre I was in, this included HIT classes – too intense physically, acupuncture – I had a panic attack during a session, Art Therapy – I could not undertake creative projects without my controlling and “be perfect” drivers taking over!
We were in Covid Lock down and so my first experience of yoga was sat on a mat looking up at a 50” TV Screen. I was immediately at ease with the tones coming from the TV – Sayeeda smiling and keeping it simple – It being Yoga.
There was no right or wrong to feed my perfectionist approach, I was directed gently to readjust and just listen to my body – I was not “Doing” I was “Being” for the first time in my 44 years.
Yoga was an experience that started to become part of my routine, I felt the rush of endorphins that did not involve smoke or a needle.
I could close my eyes and for the first time relax and turn off that washer!
My experience of attending the weekly session with Sayeeda meant I could reset my brain; I had found a non-judgmental way of looking at myself and others. I started to take responsibility for ensuring that the sessions were running by collecting the laptop from the office and setting up the room and encouraged others to attend.
More importantly, after 4 months, I left rehab and headed out on a journey of knitting myself back into society as someone who was now sober and abstinent – I was able to continue the online sessions and this played a major role in my relapse prevention routine. I had difficulty in facing the world but was now aware that I could not isolate.
By attending the sessions with Sayeeda I then had the confidence to try other yoga sessions within the community I was living in Attending Music and yoga evenings and Nidra sessions.
Yoga with Sayeeda helped me a lot with many different mental and physical problems. I do not know where to start. If I just look at the basics, in that one hour yoga session, I relax, stretch my body, and I can disconnect from the outside world and any pending tasks or problems.
In the long run, I have got a lot of benefits from practicing with Sayeeda. She helped me to reduce anxiety, cope with daily stress, and grow spiritually. My favourite part of the session is Yoga Nidra (Sleep Yoga )
I feel really relaxed at the end of the session, and she pushes people to individual limits. Also, I she gave me good advice about how to stay sober and clean and how to prevent relapse as I am in recovery for life.
Overall I think Sayeeda is a professional Yoga teacher of all levels. She is kind, helpful, and passionate about what she is doing.
During my treatment I was broken. I was physically and mentally exhausted. Especially during detox. My body was sore and ached. I wasn’t quite sure about Yoga and what it was about but I was open to trying it and so started the Yoga sessions with Sayeeda. Sometimes I wasn’t even sure if I had the energy to do it but at the end of every session I was so glad I did.
Sayeeda is very welcoming and easy to get on with.
Sayeeda has a great understanding of addiction and the effects this has on the human mind and body and facilitates the class around this. Sayeeda takes you on a yoga journey not only with stretches and postures but also with different breathing techniques, mindfulness and my favourite, yoga nidra.
The sessions are very chilled and it feels so good to take care of myself this way. To stretch and actually feel my physical and mental being, in a relaxing environment.
I feel very grateful and lucky to be able to do these sessions as Yoga has become an integral part of my recovery.
I’ve been with Sada Yoga for 1 year now, each session the atmosphere is always welcoming and I am pushed to reach my individual potential. The one hour a week helps me to relax and improve my mindset along with meeting other likeminded people. I would highly recommend Sada Yoga.
Great first ever Yoga session this evening . Thank you ! Looking forward to next week
