Anna discovered yoga in her early twenties whilst training at drama school in London. Initially it was the physical benefits that drew her in - greater flexibility, ease and strength in the body. What she then began to discover were the profound effects on the mind - greater focus, ease, self-awareness, ways of managing anxiety/stress and a deeper perspective of life. Over the last 15 years she has immersed herself in over 650 hours of training in a great variety of styles of yoga and meditation, and is registered/insured with Yoga Alliance Professionals.
She has taught extensively on yoga retreats, teaches on yoga teacher trainings and manages a yoga studio in Brighton. She thrives on sharing these ancient and modern practices in an accessible way to enable others to experience the profound benefits in their lives.
