About us

Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual and physical planes to promote calm, balance and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience

At Amethyst Yoga there are

three styles of yoga

Vinyasa Flow, Forrest and Yang Flow to Yin

All of these are focused on the connection between the breath whilst holding postures or moving through the flow of postures. The focus on the breath helps ease these postures allowing stretch and finally relaxation.

Yoga will help you with:

Increased flexibility

Increased muscle strength and tone

Improved respiration, energy and vitality

Lowering stress levels and quieting the mind

Creates wellbeing in a group

Cardio and circulatory health

Vinyasa Flow

A flowing sequence of specific poses that coordinates with the movement of the breath.

The word ‘vinyasa’ can be translated as ‘arranging something’ like a yoga pose for example. With the flow of vinyasa you will warm up and this will re-energise your body.

Our Story

Camilla founded Amethyst’s Newbury yoga studio in 2016, when she found herself with a burned-down barn next to her new home.

A long-time passionate yogi, rather than simply rebuilding the barn as it was, she saw an opportunity. She designed and built Amethyst Yoga on the site of the old barn as a way of sharing her passion and her knowledge of yoga’s benefits.

Camilla found that yoga is at its best when practised in natural surroundings. At Amethyst, those natural surroundings are combined with people-focused, empowering yoga that works for everyone, and every body.

Our Approach

We believe in a practical approach to yoga that welcomes all comers, including absolute beginners.

Our focus is on movement, strength and resilience. We know that with a regular yoga practice, you can achieve more and do more throughout your life.

We believe in the power of connecting body and mind, focusing on our own strength while working as a group to connect with each other as well as ourselves.

We also believe yoga is to be enjoyed, not endured. Our clients feel the benefits of yoga from just one class a week. Those who can commit to two, three or more classes a week find the benefits are life-changing.

Our Studio

Our Newbury yoga studio is just ten minutes from central Newbury, within easy reach of London, and a world away from anywhere else.

Our studio lies deep in the Berkshire countryside, surrounded by fields and woodland. It is a place to reconnect with yourself and your body. A place to move and be outside the everyday. A place to become stronger: physically, mentally and spiritually.

The studio is a large and warm, open room with countryside views. It is calm and comfortable, built specifically for yoga. There are spacious changing rooms and modern equipment.
