Meet The Team

Asa Retreats (pronounced A-sa) is a joint venture between Amy, Sarah and Ali.

All three of us have separate businesses based in movement and wellness and we are thrilled to be working together! We are passionate about women’s wellness, so together as Asa Retreats we aim to provide normal women a retreat away from their day to day lives, to come and enjoy movement, exercise, rest, relaxation, perhaps try something new and get some time for themselves in the beautiful home counties countryside.

 

Amy BunkerAmy’s Dance Academy 

My name is Amy Bunker and I am the Principal of Amy’s Dance Academy in Leighton Buzzard & owner of Bunkers Barn – our gorgeous venue. I am a qualified in ISTD Ballet, Tap and Modern, I’m an experienced dancer & passionate teacher for all ages. After graduating from The Centre PAC I danced in the commercial industry but following an injury I became really interested in how ballet can be used as fitness for women of all ages and abilities. I subsequently completed my Progressive Ballet Technique training. In addition to teaching a variety of classes and styles of dance at The Studio (Leighton Buzzard) I run popular weekly barre and ball classes for many years. I am also a first time Mum so understands the importance of safe, informed and above all friendly fitness classes for both your physical and mental wellbeing.

I am passionate about women’s health and wellness. I have a small private studio space, provide online training & offer 3 classes a week at The Studio in Leighton Buzzard.
