The hummingbird project

Hummingbirds medicine brings love and a renewal of the magic of living. The hummingbird is loved by flowers and plants, it gathers the nectar from the flower, the plant reproduces and more of it's kind are created. It is the only creature that can stop dead whilst travelling at full speed. It can hover, go forward or backwards up or down. The hummingbird lives on nectar and searches for the sweetness of life. It's long nose allows it to bypass the tough outer layer to find the hidden treasures beneath.

The hummingbird project is about spreading joy, love and beauty to all around and into different surroundings. It is about breaking down and through barriers, inhibitions and obstacles and rising up in beauty, love and compassion. It aspires to bring people together, communities together, races together, uniting and rising up together in love. Living in beauty, walking in beauty...together.

I am Amanda Hummingbird and connect deeply to hummingbird medicine. I aspire to share my transformational path of awakening and healing through the practices and tools that have been shared with me and now have become my practices and tools. I began the journey of peeling back the layers of core tension within my body and spirit about 4 or 5 years ago. The journey has brought me back to myself, opened my eyes up to the power that is within all of us to be accountable for all that occurs in my life and confronting my deepest fears. In doing so, I began to become aware of my habitual patterns, behaviours and reactions to life and the same story I was telling myself. Through the support of my personal practices I have begun to tell myself a different story, a story that raises my vibration, to begin to respond to life rather than react, to live my life in more beauty and magic than I ever imagined possible and flow in trust, gratitude and abundance. My practices are meditation, Forrest yoga, bodywork, ceremony, medicine songs, drumming, shamanic flute and free mandala art. I am a certified with Cam Yoga and Forrest Yoga and a bodyworker. I look forward to connecting with you. Aho!

Open Qualifying organisation icon in new tabElizabeth Martyn:

Hello, I'm Elizabeth. I trained and certified as a Life Coach with The Coaches Training Institute in 2012/13. Being a coach has transformed my life, both through what I've learned from working with clients, and through using the techniques to change and develop my own life. The best thing about being a coach is the chance I get to help people embrace their lives and find satisfaction and fulfilment from doing the things they enjoy most. I especially love working with groups because we can learn so much from each other.

I have a warm, non-judgemental and supportive approach, and create a safe environment for people to discover what it is they want to do in their lives, and how best to do it. People who come to my workshops find them inspiring and motivating, and I'd like to offer the same to you. I use lots of fun and thought-provoking tools and exercises in sessions, such as meditation, visualisation, reflective writing or drawing, brainstorming and discussion time. There's always a new way to think about our lives, and new directions to explore, and working in a group can help uncover dreams and ideas we wouldn't otherwise have brought to the surface.

In 2018 I'm offering REINVENTING Retirement, a 6-part course which unfolds over six months, aiming to help you find out what your heart desires in retirement, and how to get there. I'll also be working on two seasonal Sunday morning workshops with Rachel which will help you prepare for the new seasons with exercises, meditations and life-coaching exercises suited to the time of year.

'I love all aspects of yoga and am driven by showing and teaching people how yoga works in everyday life, not just on the mat. And how it is truly for everyone irrespective of shape, sex, size or fitness. That is where my passion truly lies. I currently teach Hatha Yoga for all levels, specialising with beginner classes (bringing people back to the essentials of yoga).'

'My classes are friendly, relaxed, fun and varied. Students are encouraged to practice with curiosity and enquiry. To focus on body sensations rather than achieving the perfect pose. I recognise all bodies are different and move differently on different days.'

Certified by French Yoga Federation 2004, Yoga Alliance UK Professionals member since 2013

Leanne teaches a contemporary style of alignment based vinyasa yoga with strong roots in Anusara yoga. Her classes are engaging, challenging and fun, designed to bring balance to both body and mind.

The term vinyasa refers to the alignment of movement and breath, which through creative sequencing turns static asanas (poses) into a dynamic flow. Vinyasa yoga essentially teaches us to cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next-on the mat and in our lives. Through our vinyasa yoga practice we can develop an artful approach to living, applying the skill and awareness of yoga to all the rhythms and sequences of life.

A former dancer, Leanne has been a yoga practitioner since 1999 and a certified teacher since 2004. Over her many years of practice she has been fortunate enough to attend classes and workshops with some of today's most experienced teachers of contemporary hatha yoga, yoga philosophy and anatomy. Her knowledge and understanding of many of the hatha yoga styles popular today continues to develop and she brings a wealth of experience to her classes.

After over a decade living and teaching in Paris, Leanne has recently returned to her home town of Norwich. She has two children, born 2002 and 2006

At the Zenith of the year at the Summer Solstice I have a very strong Yang style going on and then, as the year progresses towards the Equinox's I find I start introducing more softer, Yin style holds, so when the Winter Solstice comes around my last class before Christmas is a deliciously sweet, candle lit Yin only practise, then, we head into the light from there again, and travel with the sun towards summer, its a natural thing."

Free Spirit Yoga.
Free spirits are inclined to explore life and taste new experiences that hold true to the deepest parts of themselves versus being influenced by what the masses around them are doing. They are often people who think freely and have the courage to hear their own voice and follow their own integrity. Free Spirit Yoga aims to follow these principles in our yoga practice, with influences from Forrest Yoga , Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha yoga we will enjoy a practice that enables the yogi to venture deeper into asanas and try something new. Learning to listen to their bodys and discover its limitations and possibilities. I encourage each individual to understand how their body moves and work with the breath to get deeper into each posture, whilst interacting and having fun offering a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Each class will involve movement in sun salutations, pranayama (breathing) exercises to calm the mind and strengthen the body with a relaxing yoga nidra at the end of class to settle the soul.

"I have been practising yoga myself for over 10 years and trained as a fitness instructor and personal trainer. Yoga kept me sane through some very dark times of my life. When I was working towards becoming an elite instructor for Bodybalance my yoga self was reignited and my longing to become a yoga teacher grew stronger. I found Atma in one of his classes and soon decided to join him for 200hr teacher training in 2014. I have experienced many different styles of yoga and have seen the benefits of yoga help not only myself but also many of my students. My style comes from the heart with a free spirit. I teach Hatha Yoga but with influences from Forrest Yoga , Ashtanga and Vinyasa. I like to be lighthearted in my teaching, encouraging interaction and enjoyment with a no fluff approach."
