Great welcome: great range of classes and holistic treatments at the Centre. I'm delighted to practise there, both as teacher (TRE) and student (yoga, Pilates and wider Ayurvedic wellbeing). I've seen a big increase in my flexibility in just 6 months, see wonderful colours and I feel in good hands especially re my dodgy shoulder! More...

This time last week I was getting ready for the Ayurvedic retreat at the centre. I was excited to learn more about the science of life. Worried I wouldn't be able to keep up with the Hatha flow yoga and the meditation sessions, I went decided to just do my best. I didn't need to be apprehensive. The weekend was lovely. I met some really nice, like minded people. We meditated, cooked, learnt the basics of ayurveda & our doshas. The yoga was varied and suited to all abilities. The centre is a warm inviting family home, where Anne-Marie & James welcome you in and encourage you on your personal journey. I hope to join the August retreat & put some of my learning into practice. Thanks again xx More...

I have just got back from the ayurvedic bank holiday weekend retreat. Firstly I would like to thank Ann-Marie, Chris, James and Rachel for making me feel so welcome and opening Up your lovely home. This is a wonderful family run business. I thought the balance between the yoga practice, meditation, free time and other things They had planned for the group all worked very well. I found the retreat very a relaxing. There was plenty of home cooked fresh vegan food, herbal teas and fruit supplied every day. I also learnt some valuable nutritional information from James’ Ayurveda seminar. I went to the retreat as a meat eater and left with a whole new outlook On what I put into my body. I also had two amazing treatments with Rachel. The new treatment room is so magical. The weekend definitely gives you a lot of food for thought and you learn things you can apply in everyday life. If you are looking to recharge or batteries and to reconnect with yourself then this is the place to be. More...

The Yorkshire Centre for Wellbeing is an excellent place for anyone wanting to learn more about yoga, meditation and the Ayurvedic lifestyle. Anne Marie, James and Chris are so kind and welcoming and the therapy treatments offered by Kelly-Anne are to die for! The Ayurvedic retreat offers a fantastic mix of yoga, meditation, teachings and therapies. You are completely immersed in the Ayurvedic way of life. James and Anne-Marie are so knowledgeable and supportive and are very happy to spend time helping you in any way you need to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from your stay. As for Kelly-Anne, I have had many different massages in my time, but the mixture of back massage, angelic reiki and crystal chakra cleansing treatment I had with Kelly-Anne was the best I had ever experienced! I can't wait to come back and have more! Thank you to everyone at Yorkshire Centre for Wellbeing and to the wonderful people I met on the retreat. Hope to see you all again soon!. More...

I have attended Anne-Marie's classes for over 25 years and have always enjoyed the exercises to we do each week. Since her beautiful studio opened several years ago I have enjoyed both Pilates and Power Pilates classes. As I have got older I have realised how beneficial it is to exercise regularly with a group of like minded people. It is a social occasion too and there are many of us who have been exercising together for a long time. Anne-Marie and her team are excellent experienced teachers. More...

I’ve just returned from the Ahimsa Garden Retreat in Kerala. The trip was organised by the Yorkshire Centre for Wellbeing and we were accompanied by Anne-Marie Burford. It was an incredible experience and one that I’m looking forward to repeating next year. The retreat has two purpose built yoga studios and the views from both are breathtaking. It is almost impossible to explain the sensation of practising yoga whilst watching the sun rise above the lush green Keralan landscape, you must experience this for yourself to fully appreciate. Ayurvedic treatments are available and are carried out by an incredible team of practitioners. Treatments are bespoked to fit your specific requirements as prescribed by an Ayurvedic doctor. I cannot pretend to understand the full content of the treatments but I can say for me the results have been excellent, resulting in amongst other things, a more relaxed outlook, better sleep and greater energy levels. The food at the Ahimsa Garden Retreat was consistently of the highest standard. Thankfully the quantities available matched the quality. The bedrooms were spacious and of good standard. All rooms had access to ensuite facilities. The grounds were amazing with an incredible array of flowers, herbs, trees, fruit and vegetables all growing across the three acres. Additional activities included performances by local musicians and traditional dancers laid on at Ahimsa Gardens, both exceptional. The standout memory for me will have to be boating on the Keralan backwaters and watching the sun slowly set. The staff at Ahimsa Gardens made it feel like my home and for that I am grateful, their hospitality knew no bounds. Final word must be for Kerala and its people. Beautiful place, beautiful humble people who through both their gentleness and kindness have truly inspired me. I didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to return. More...

What a little gem! I have tried various treatments and therapies around the world over the years - in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. but Ayurvedic treatment is in a league of its own, in my opinion. People are going to India after chemotherapy and radiation to restore their immune systems; it is unique and highly effective. Dr Daisy Kuchinad, the founder of Ahimsa, knows only too well as her own beloved son had Cancer aged only 20. A physician based in the US, she researched the planet to find someone to help her son and found Dr Nair. He is a top Ayurvedic doctor based in Kerala. There is something very special about this man; his intuition is incredible - like he truly has a sixth sense. He treats patients with panchakarma, Ayurveda's premier mind-body healing treatment; a unique programme of deep cleansing, purification rejuvenation to detoxify the mind and body, strengthen the immune system and restore balance. I genuinely feel different after a week of treatment - plus the added bonus of looking younger with less cellulite! Dr Kuchinad has set up a lovely, homely villa with beautiful tropical gardens in which she is conserving rare Ayurvedic plants and the most incredible yoga studios with wooden floors restored from ancient temples, set at tree level amidst the Indian jungle. In accordance with panchakarma, the wonderful staff serve delicious, organic, mainly home-grown, Ayurvedic, vegetarian food to cleanse the body for the duration of your stay. There is time to relax and recharge and time to experience the amazing Indian culture with a boat trip on the stunning backwaters, live traditional Indian music and dance, a visit to a Hindu temple and an Indian yoga and martial arts' show. This has been a trip of a lifetime! It is life changing! I truly feel that Ayurveda is a lifestyle to be as healthy as possible in a non- aggressive way, one that I intend to continue to follow. I now feel that annual Ayurvedic treatments are key for today's busy life in the West. I think I would have burned out and become seriously ill if I had not taken the time to heal myself and it is an ongoing, lifelong healing process. The combination of East meeting West with a top conventional doctor and top Ayurvedic doctor means you are in the safest of hands with the best advice from both schools of thought. Ahimsa is not only an Ayurvedic retreat but also a yoga retreat, with a highly experienced, international yoga teacher flying in from the UK for the retreats, Anne-Marie Burford. At meal times, Dr Kuchinad leads inspiring discussions, putting the world to rights, including chats about Ayurveda, modern medicine, philosophy, yoga and praynama, to name a few. I have learned a lot; I feel enlightened, inspired and extreme positive! All this for a very reasonable price. I am so grateful and I shall be back! More...

Three years ago I was looking for a yoga class. My requirements were quite specific. I wanted a class with a spiritual philosophy, small enough for individual attention as I wanted to develop a personal practice, and with a teacher with experience in working with people with physical difficulties [I have had a mastectomy, a deltoid muscle removed and a hip replacement and did not want to cause any further damage! ]. I found exactly what I was looking for with Anne Marie. When I started classes it was as a total beginner. It was some years since I had exercised regularly, apart from walking, and I was extremely cautious and lacking in flexibility. I began with a sitting version of sun salutations and felt faint. However, I was in this for the long haul and began to practice every morning before breakfast. Very gradually, with Anne Marie’s encouragement and support, I could feel progress. Nearly three years on, it is hard to remember that yoga has not always been part of my life. My daily practice continues and I find that limitations I thought I had don’t exist! Classes are invaluable now in helping me to develop my practice, they are challenging and thoroughly enjoyable. I wonder what I’ll be able to do in another three years. Thank you Anne Marie and James, I cannot recommend you highly enough. More...
