considered • caring • calming
"Anneliese is considered in everything she says and does, explaining with great care and clarity how each movement and position should be achieved, and how it might make you feel. Even Anneliese's voice has a calming timbre to it." Natalia -
I began practicing yoga in 1998 when expecting my first child. Yoga was such a revelation to me that I used the practices to home birth both my children.
I was 39 and suffering from mental illness when I began my first teacher training. But, it is my opinion that this was an advantage; it has given me great empathy for the challenges and development of my clients.
My initial training with the London Yoga Teacher Training Group taught me Hatha Yoga using the principles of Vanda Scaravelli's teaching; namely to work in harmony with gravity and the breath in order to release tension and build strength.
I have subsequently trained in Yoga Therapy for the Mind with The Minded Institute, Children and Teen Yoga with Calm for Kids and Pregnancy Yoga with Classical Yoga. I have attained Level 1 in Mindfulness training with Clear Mind Institute and plan to continue with this training.
It is through my ongoing practice of yoga and mindfulness meditation that I remain calm, steady and free from mental illness. This is a life long journey I have undertaken and one I am both passionate about and delighted to share with others.
