“Avril is a beautiful person who has a wealth of knowledge, perspectives and experiences she shares with participants in their journey. She does so very authentically, from the heart and is very engaging. The program is fantastic, taking you through ideas and concepts, and practices for you to put together a practice and vision that is just for you. This journey is never really complete for us of course, but the program allows you a way to start ❤️”

“The Become YOU program was such a joy. Avril created a beautiful space to learn, experience and share ideas about what it means to be authentically ‘you’. Not only did I walk away from the 8 weeks with a clearer understanding of my core traits, values and aspirations, but I also have a solid daily practice of intention setting, pranayama, yoga and meditation that supports me to be the best version of myself.

Avril's knowledge about spirituality and holistic wellbeing is incredibly extensive. She was always willing and able to answer all sorts of questions that participants had which made for rich conversations. As an added bonus I’ve also made some beautiful new friendships!

If you are seeking to bring about positive change in your life - this course will provide you the space to reflect, imagine and begin to create the “you” that you want to be.”

“I cannot recommend Avril's Become You program highly enough. I took part in her program last year and found it highly beneficial. I had had a regular Yoga practice for many years but this is not necessary to enjoy and reap the benefits from Avril's program - her Become You program is suited equally to both absolute beginners and those who already have a working knowledge of yogic philosophy.
The 8 week program follows a logical sequence covering yogic breath work, meditation, intention setting, positive affirmations, journalling and of course yoga postures. Whilst having a semi-structured format, there is also the ability to ask as many questions as you like and to follow up with Avril on topics for a greater understanding.
The small group format encouraged intimacy among a like-minded group of women, providing a safe and non-judgemental space in which to get to know your true self. I got to know an amazing group of women and have made some lovely new friendships.
Avril has a deep knowledge and understanding of spirituality (in both an Eastern and more traditional Christian context) and Ayurvedic principles which she integrates seamlessly to offer up a complete holistic package for greater well being.
I have come away from the completion of Avril's Become You program with the foundation for a beautiful daily practice which allows me the space to really reconnect with the essence of myself and to bring about positive change to my life. I view this as the beginning of my journey and I am forever grateful to Avril for her calm guidance and unwavering friendship.”
