Amely trained as a dancer and teacher of Classical Ballet at the Royal Academy of Dance in London. She joined C.O.D Contemporary Dance company on graduation, performing for three years in works by choreographer Angela Praed in the South West, London and at Glastonbury Festival. She then switched her focus purely to teaching ballet technique and hit her 30 year teaching anniversary in 2023!
Amely has been practicing yoga for over a decade, first studying with Amanda Brown. She completed the 300 hr TT last year at FYS and took on the Thursday Slowflow class soon after, combining this with the ‘day job’ of teaching Classical Ballet technique on both the BA Hons Dance and Choreography (alongside Simon!), and the BA Hons Musical Theatre degrees, as well as teaching and coaching at various local dance schools. Amely also works as an Examiner for the Royal Academy of Dance which takes her all over the UK and beyond.
Amely has also completed the 100 hr Restorative Yoga training course with Amanda, plus various Dance Practitioner courses on flexibility, core stability, common injury and prevention and has a real interest in anatomy and biomechanics.
Amely’s classes combine her dance background with asana, producing a fluid and flowing style of movement connected to the breath and incorporating dance-related movements and somatics, traditional vinyasa, pranayama and stretching, plus a solid savasana!
