Like many I started practicing yoga to complement other physical activities and I have dipped in and out of yoga practice since I was a teenager. However the ball really dropped when I first encountered strong Vinyasa flow classes and I was hooked by the journey, physically and mentally, those classes would take me on. Yoga became a fundamental and integral part of my life and has remained so - there’s no area of my life or self that yoga hasn’t shed some light on and as a life-long student it’s a path I continue to follow with delight and excitement, a privilege to be able to delve deeper into the practice and myself.

"I started attending Anna’s classes after several years away from yoga and was apprehensive that, by now in my late 50s and very out of practice, I would struggle to find my “place”. I needn’t have worried; Anna is a gifted, inclusive teacher who unfailingly emphasises the importance of valuing our own personal experiences of each class, as well as our own wider yoga journeys. She gives clear explanations at every stage and suggests appropriate alternatives for those who prefer more or less challenge. I’ve had great yoga teachers before, but Anna’s passion and commitment make her special, and her lessons are underpinned by a deep knowledge of the philosophy of yoga, which she shares with learners in a truly accessible and open-hearted way. I love Anna’s originality – rooftop yoga, yoga for climbers! – and her drive to grow a community of yoga learners of all levels. It has meant a great deal to me to re-engage with my yoga practice and it has restored to me a certain type of calm, joy and physical confidence that had been missing from my life for just a bit too long." - Linda
