Hello, I'm Anna! I attended my first yoga class in Osmington, Dorset in 1993 and instantly fell in love with the practice of connecting body, mind and spirit through movement, breath and asana. Ever since then yoga has been a central feature in my life. In my late teens and early adulthood becoming a yoga teacher was my dream and after more than a decade of dedicated practice I found the teacher training course I had been waiting for: the Scaravelli Inspired AIYP London Teacher Training Course (BWY accredited) which gave me a solid grounding in the principles of Vanda Scaravelli's approach and also inspired me to keep on learning and to develop my own unique style of teaching. I qualified in 2011 and have been on a wonderful journey of teaching groups and individuals since then.
I am ever humbled by the way in which my own yoga and meditation practice helps me to navigate the changing seas and seasons of life. The holistic path of yoga has quite simply been my rock from teenage years to midlife; it has carried me with grace through challenging times. Sharing this beautiful practice with others gives me great joy and I feel incredibly lucky to be able to do what I love each day.
I met my husband Stephen in 2017 and together we moved to North Wales in 2020. The beautiful natural landscape here is a constant inspiration and I love both wild swimming and exploring on land, drawing inspiration from Embodied Presence practices.
Stephen introduced me to Zen meditation and also to the beautiful Mevlevi Order of Sufism. These are now two of the finest threads in the weave of my personal spiritual path, filling me with gratitude, wonder and awe, along with the understanding that I am always a beginner.
Stephen sometimes joins me leading meditation in workshops, retreats and classes, lending his wisdom and many years of experience to our sessions.
