About Yoga

Mind

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.

Body

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.

Spirit

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.

Venues

Setting is very important to Anne. She aims to create special and safe spaces where transformation can happen. When teaching her own 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.

Influences

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 trainings - and her daily personal practice.
