18.30 Wednesday Evening Group Yoga, by Zoom appointment till further notice. Contact me for further information.
Mindful practices are key to Anne's teaching. In her classes, she will invite you to work with the breath and bring awareness to noticing your thoughts, without getting caught up in them.
Classes focus on how the body feels, rather than how it would appear to an external observer, but that's not to say there is no physical challenge! Adaptations can be made where necessary and the focus is on honouring the body you find yourself in - today.
Yoga is a spiritual practice, and Anne loves teaching in a way that invites students to experience that sense of surrender that brings them closer to stillness and into union with their whole and original Self.
Anne is a Yoga Scotland 500 hour registered and insured teacher. Yoga Scotland is recognised by sportscotland as the Governing Body for Yoga in Scotland. Anne has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and completed her two-year teacher training course in 2018. She is also certified by the Yoga in Healthcare Alliance to deliver their ten-week early intervention programme, Yoga4Health, the effectiveness of which was evaluated by the University of Westminster
Anne studied her 500 hour teacher training with Yoga Scotland over two years - allowing her to explore, integrate and consolidate what she learned - and to satisfy external assessors of her fitness to teach. She is also qualified to teach Yoga4Health. To stay registered, all Yoga Scotland teachers are required to evidence high quality Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
Setting is very important to Anne. She aims to create special and safe spaces where transformation can happen. for private classes, venues are chosen that lend themselves to creating the correct ambience for learning to take place. The spaces hired are clean, quiet and private. Often special lighting and gentle sound is used to create a sense of the extraordinary.
Anne's teaching style is evolving as her understanding of yoga deepens over the years. She only teaches that which feels genuine. Her influences are wide. They include Vanda Scaravelli, Donna Fahri, BKS Iyengar and John Stirk, Himalayan yoga, functional movement and somatics. Anne's teaching is informed by both formal training - and her own daily practice.
