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.
