Private Tuition

If you prefer to be supported on an individual basis, be it as a beginner, to develop your practice or to work with an injury, these sessions are for you. Private tuition can also be arranged couples or small groups. Price upon request.

I highly recommend weekly private lessons with Anneliese. Each lesson is totally individualised and Anneliese effortlessly adapts the lesson according to my needs that day.

Private Yoga Therapy for Mental Health

Yoga and Mindfulness thread beautifully into a healing program for mental well-being. Under the caring guidance of Anneliese, mind, body and breath techniques will empower you to manage your own mental well-being for years to come. This journey is most suitable when taken alongside talking therapy or afterwards.

It can also be taken as a preventative measure if you suffer from chronic stress, mild anxiety or mild depression.

I can honestly say that the one to one sessions have made the greatest improvement to my life. Anneliese seems to understand where I am coming from and is very experienced and intuitive as to what will help. Anneliese connects gently to your soul with her empathy and compassion and this provokes some light-bulb moments and a real sense of being heard.

Private tuition is also available during Pregnancy to support your well-being during these valuable 9 months and to empower you to support your body through labour.

Combining yoga, breathing and meditation, the prenatal classes taught me how to find and harness an inner power I didn’t know I had.

Yoga & Mindfulness Classes
Enjoy a mindful yoga practice where you are encouraged to pay attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. Classes usually end with a mindfulness meditation which can assist in the development of positive health behaviors, psychological and emotional resilience, and a sense of well-being that can be effectively cultivated and relied upon throughout your life.

I’d been accustomed to striving towards a position, but with Anneliese’s Scaravelli inspired approach, I’m learning that less is often more. I’m learning to listen to and respect my body, working with it rather than forcing it into submission.

Stress Relief Yoga
These yoga classes are an opportunity for you to de-stress in the tranquility of Birchwood Yoga's beautiful rural studio. Classes are specifically designed to rid the body of stress hormones, but also to address the exhaustion that stress can generate by enabling the body to rest. We therefore practice strong asana to rid the body of stress hormones, in conjunction with long hold stretches to induce the relaxation response, restorative poses and breathing techniques; teaching the nervous system that it can return to a feeling of calm after stress. Meditation often makes an appearance as a wonderful support to calm a busy mind. And of course relaxation to leave you feeling grounded, calm and re-booted for the week ahead.

The Stress Relief sessions at Birchwood Yoga are an amazing way to get some space and balance. I find the breathing practices especially useful - something I can use in any situation to help find calm. You come away with a deep feeling of relaxation throughout your mind and body. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to maintain a sense of calm.

Beginners Yoga
Due to the small class sizes at Birchwood Yoga, it is recommended that beginners take private classes until they feel confident to join a weekly class.
