Privacy Policy


My website address is:

Amanda Powell Yoga is the trading name for yoga teacher Amanda Powell (Yoga name: Anjali). I am committed to protecting any data I collect from you. By using my services, you agree to the use of the data I collect in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

I collect the minimum amount of information about you in order to provide you with a satisfactory experience and service.

What personal data is collected and why

I collect a certain amount of personal data when you attend my classes, sessions and events. This is for the purposes of meeting insurance company criteria as well as for your health and safety at yoga. Any health information is also used to tailor sessions to suit your needs.

I will ask for your specific consent to receive my newletters and marketing information. You can opt-out of this at any time.

Class and workshop attendance and health data will be held for a maximum of seven years from your last class with me (seven years from reaching the age of consent for under-18s). This is a condition of my insurance.

If you ask me to remove or amend information solely held for marketing purposes (for example, data held for my mailing list), I will do so as soon as is practicable.

Credit card payment data is held by Stripe, which has its own Privacy Policy.

Studios, gyms and other premises where I might work on a self-employed basis (e.g Gartholwg Lifelong Learning Centre, The Vale Resort), may collect data from you independently as a member or user of their facilities and are solely responsible for their own data protection and privacy compliance.

If I run a joint event (for example a class, retreat or workshop) with another provider, then I will share the data of participants with that provider for the purpose of keeping you informed about the relevant event and collecting any information necessary to ensure the safe and efficient running of the event.

Information Use

I use the information collected to help plan and tailor my yoga teaching to the needs of participants and also to market my services – for example forthcoming workshops via Mailchimp email (see below for more information about Mailchimp. All reasonable precautions are taken to provide unauthorised access to this information. You have a right to complain to the Information Comissioner’s Office if you think there is a problem in the way I handle your data.


When visitors leave comments on the site, I collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to this website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


I use Zoom to provide online classes and to make classes available afterwards. You will be asked to give your consent to recording when you join a class, and that is recorded onto the Zoom cloud.
In order to make the ‘teacher view’ of that recording available as an unlisted video on YouTube afterwards, I transfer that recording onto my own machine. There may be glimpses of students as part of that recording (e.g. if one of us unmutes the sound), which will then appear on YouTube. Here is Zoom’s full privacy policy.

Contact forms and Mailchimp

If you contact me via the contact form on this website, I’ll receive an email message which only I and (rarely) a web developer I might ask for help are allowed to access. The information is also stored in the database on my hosting server at

My newsletter is distributed in two ways:

  1. Via “MailChimp”, a newsletter shipping platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

E-mail addresses of my newsletter recipients, as well as their other information described herein, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on my behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp may, according to its own information, use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of the shipping and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of my newsletter recipients to write them down or to pass them on to third parties.
I rely on the reliability, IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU “Privacy Shield” and is committed to complying with EU data protection requirements. Here’s MailChimp’s privacy policy.

2. Via my website newsletter function.

You can opt-out of receiving newsletters at any time from both systems

At least every two years I will delete all subscribers who are not confirmed subscribers to my newsletter list, or sooner if you ask me to remove your data by emailing me at


If you leave a comment on this site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit the login page, the site will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, I will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so I can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on this website (if any), I also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

My newsletter and website collect IP addresses which are used for various features including tracking to geo-localisation.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, have registered for my newsletters or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided. You can also request that I erase any personal data held about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where else your data may go

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Changes to this policy

Any changes to my privacy policy will be placed here and will supersede this version of my policy. I suggest you read this document each time you use the website to ensure it still meets your approval.
