David Fleming

David Fleming is an experienced Somatic Movement Educator who has been teaching a variety of movement forms since he first trained in The Nia Technique in 2008.  Alongside Nia he also trained in Nia 5 Stages, a movement approach based on the five developmental stages: Embryonic, Creeping, Crawling, Standing and Walking.

In 2012, he became an Aerial Yoga teacher and a year later furthered his study with Hanna Somatics. David hosted Martha Peterson of Essential Somatics in 2013, with the first Hanna Somatic Exercise Coach (HSEC) training in the UK. He has since hosted Martha frequently and has assisted on Essesntial Somatics trainings and courses. In 2015, he began Clinical Somatic Educator training with Essential Somatics, and more recently trained with James Knight, in Gentle Somatic Yoga.   He offers 1-2-1 Clinical Somatics,  weekly classes in Hanna Somatics and Gentle Somatic Yoga,  workshops around the country, as well as regular workshops in Leeds. 

Amanda Franklin

Amanda trained in The Nia Technique in 2007, and taught regularly from then on, completing her Black Belt Training in 2014.  She is also trained in Nia 5 Stages.  From her love of Nia, and its somatic approach to movement, Amanda went on to train with Martha Peterson of Essential Somatics to become a Somatic Exercise Coach, and more recently with James Knight to become a Gentle Somatic Yoga teacher. Along with David, she also teaches Aerial Yoga classes and workshops, having trained with Devi Kaur in Chakra Aerial Yoga, and offers Aerial Yoga Teacher Training.

All of the classes, workshops and trainings offered by David and Amanda are influenced by Hanna Somatic principles, as they are both committed to educating people to move more freely.
