“I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all the work you’re doing to keep things going.
It makes a huge difference.
Not just financially (though that’s great), but by giving us the opportunity to coach and teach. Because that’s why most of us do this – we love it.

“You guys keep me sane” CW
“As a guy dealing with a very demanding job and busy family life, I felt my overall health slowly deteriorating over past last year. In just a few weeks, the Sangha House has without doubt, helped bring about a positive change in my mindset and my ability to cope with intense stress levels. The dramatic improvement in my physical health has also been very welcome!
I’ve been made to feel at home by Helen, Denise and Andy and felt immediately accepted into the fold. I was initially given many classes to try out which I felt were tailored to combat my particular stresses, these including Pilates, Yoga, Acupuncture and Tai-Chi all of which I am still very much enjoying participating in.
To any guys out there who may be dealing with stress or just want to see some major physical improvement, I really recommend you check this place out. I feel like I have faced down a few of life’s curveballs in the most natural and beneficial way possible.” KA
“The [massage] treatment was great. I spent the evening mostly sleeping and had a good nights sleep! Look forward to seeing Morgan again” DD
Thank you so much for last nights class. I found it particularly useful and together with the advice from my previous email these sessions are of great benefit. I think when I connect with my space I feel very safe, this is a great help. There are so many triggers, shouting, children screaming, crowds etc. I have noticed that by saying ‘hello’ to the vadanas, it is decreasing in power. My overall feelings of anxiety have decreased and I am sleeping so much better. Also eating less, which is amazing. All this is very interesting and I welcome it with gratefulness and joy. 😄.” SD
“Great job creating such an amazing Community” JS
“You are offering an amazing service to the local community and deserve all the success you are creating.” SB
“I just love what you have created at the house and am enjoying every minute of the events you have organised” CT
“Very grateful to all the team for helping to keep us fit and sane over lockdown.” WL
“The [online meditation] course was particularly helpful during these difficult times as lockdown altered everything. Whereas I had a particular direction in my life before the first lockdown, suddenly I found I had no structure or routine. I did too much negative thinking and reacted to lockdown in an unwholesome way. I was much more prepared when the second lockdown came.
Once we were unlocked from the first lockdown, I took steps to return to some sort of normality in the exercise world. Here I found a new direction with the community of Sangha House. As part of this course, the meditation has helped me to relax through the breath pattern and feel a sense of contentment. By taking this path, it has helped with mental tension and physical suffering. A course in the New Year will be helpful during these constantly changing uncertain times.” YB
I found the Buddhist Eight Fold Path course that Andy ran during lockdown very enlightening. The information was engagingly presented and the follow up notes were really useful. The meditations were new to me and I enjoyed them. In these times of uncertainty to focus on something like this was a really positive experience. I would recommend it.
Great news that Boris is letting you go back to the House.” JW
“Thank you very much for your excellent talk on the Vagus Nerve. I learned so much from all your combined knowledge and experience. Thank you for taking the time to prepare such an informative presentation.” RL
“Take my money please!
“A big thank you for the Sangha Virtual Studio. It has been a welcome release in these most testing of times; I’ve learned much and it’s been fun too – even with the occasional ‘Nemesis’ inflicted by Andy!” JA
“The sessions we attended gave structure to our week. All I can say is that you three have done nothing but Innovation, Innovation, Innovation, and have kept it all fresh. High praise to each of you.” PH
“Helen was amazing” CC
“Essential workers for us all 😀 xx” EO
“Amber is great at watching the class and giving feed back on whether our positions were correct or not. If not, advising what to do to make it right.” TG
“That felt wonderful. Such a great class and the benefits will be with me the rest of the day” AM
“Really appreciate your communications with me! I checked out your website. really cool! you offer so much! i really liked/ was intrigued by what i saw. i love the story of how it started. that the ”center”(not sure how it’s referred to) is run by “real” people. not some huge, cold, organization, with the ONLY goal being to make money!” AA
“Since starting the course I have become more aware of the tension I am carrying in my heart and gut and feel that I have learned to relax more already. A testament to your teaching skills I think! Of all the meditations I have tried over the years the Buddhist approach is the only one that seems to make sense to me and it has had such an effect already.” AC
“I have learned since starting meditation and going to all the classes and presentations at SH ….is how to breathe. I know this sounds a bit ridiculous but it’s true. I have always exercised (and have taught exercise) but I have never grasped the importance of breathing properly. In fact, I realise now how much I have always held breath when exercising. Your tutors constantly remind participants to breathe…..and that’s so helpful. I definitely feel the health benefits from breathing properly. …so a double thank you to you and all your tutors. You are all doing a great job.” KS
“Sam is particularly good at delivering a multilevel class that allows everyone to work to their level and feel suitably challenged.
I’m loving Akil’s Hatha yoga which I’d never tried before – again, suitably challenging and really interesting to learn a new approach to yoga moves.” AM
“Thank you for organising the self care event. I thought it was totally brilliant. I particularly liked choosing an inspirational word for the year and I have chosen “believe” for mine which is now at the centre of my self care wheel. The whole event has sparked lots of ideas but I find it hard to explain how many. Motivational, inspiring, extremely helpful on a daily basis. It will certainly be an event I shall remember and practice.” CT
“Wow that was bloody LUSH!! I feel fuzzy!!” SM
“Please can you let Morgan know she is a fantastic yoga teacher. I love her sessions” CB
“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started Lena’s Yoga Nidra class, but found it very relaxing, just what was needed after a busy week” RD
“I really missed Amber’s yoga class on Monday afternoon, and Tuesday didn’t feel quite right as a result! I have found Amber’s classes to be really engaging, fun and well-planned. I really like how Amber makes regular, positive, encouraging, verbal comments on how participants are doing, because it makes such a difference to me and my experience.” RP
“I just wanted to thank you and Joanne for putting on this workshop…what a lovely woman Joanne is. I found it really helpful and I especially like the breathing exercises” AC
“Bloomin’ marvellous…” BW
“Dileep’s yoga class offers a challenging practice with focus on asana and pranayama to build strength and flexibility. A knowledgeable and kind teacher, Dileep guides the session with the option to rest always available. I found the class very enjoyable and refreshing and couldn’t believe how fast the time went! I am looking forward to continuing to attend this class and recommend others who have a yoga practice (or are fairly fit) to give it a try.” OP
After a challenging year or so I was feeling quite overwhelmed as we re-emerged from the constraints we all have been living with. I wasn’t feeling in good shape mentally or physically so I knew I needed some support to protect my well-being. I turned to Andy who’s Tai Chi Classes have already helped me through some stressful times, Andy suggested Buddhist Mentoring… to be honest I wasn’t entirely sure what this would entail but with total trust in Andy’s experience and knowledge, these weekly sessions in the sanctuary of the Sangha House have been immensely beneficial to me, I feel a weight lifting from my shoulders and a sense of calm returning.” JP
“Thanks Denise, my foot already feels more comfortable and thanks for the advice and action plan!” FG
