“I’m really pleased with how well my yoga classes have been going at Rhodes – after 5 years plugging away it feels like the word has spread far & wide now about what I offer – I have students coming all the way from St.Albans, Ongar, Saffron Walden & Harlow as well as B/S and the surrounding villages.  I always get great feedback about what a wonderful venue the Rhodes is and the variety of offerings, so I’m really pleased to have such a good working relationship with you – long may it continue!”  Mandy Beaumont
