Getting up for a 4.30am yoga class might not be everyone’s cup of tea - but that’s the time of one of the classes on offer at a new yoga studio in Sheffield.

Amy’s Ashram, which opens this weekend in Dore, is a new hot yoga studio and the brainchild of 31-year-old Amy Wells.

She will be offering different types of yoga at the studio - created by her builder husband Saul at their home on Abbeydale Road South.

And the classes include the Sadhana - a ‘spiritual’ yoga experience taking place in the early hours of dawn.

Amy, who has been teaching yoga for 11 years, said: “Because we practise in the quiet and early hours of dawn we are able to communicate with ourselves on a higher level.

“If you are really struggling in life, relationships, work or simply looking for something ‘missing’, Sadhana is a great space to come and nourish your soul.”

She is holding a three-day opening extravaganza at the Ashram starting today and continuing all weekend.

Highlights include sessions for parents and children, power yoga, hot yoga, meditation, and Kundalini - which includes moving, chanting, meditation and relaxation.

Also on during the weekend will be healthy treats including soup, curry, chai tea, sparkle juice, porridge and green lemonade.

Amy, who was brought up in Dore, said: “Four years ago I moved back to Sheffield with the dream of opening my own hot yoga studio and now it’s happened.

“Among other things hot yoga burns fat, increases the metabolism, detoxes the body and is a safe and easy way of stretching.”
