"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 -

Anneliese continues professional development through online and in person trainings and private classes with Dot Bowen.
With her training in Scaravelli inspired Yoga, Mindfulness and Yoga Therapy for the Mind, Anneliese’s teaching is concentrated around mindful awareness of your connection to the ground and the breath in order to expend as little energy as is necessary to build strength and release tension from both the body and mind.
Anneliese believes that yoga is for everybody and not just for those who are already flexible! With her empathic approach, she supports you using props where necessary to ensure you develop at a pace that suits you. She encourages you to take ownership of your practice through cultivating self awareness so that you can take the skills you learn off the mat and into daily life.
Anneliese began her first teacher training in 2009 at the age of 39. “I wasn't super flexible and I was suffering from mental illness at the time. But this has resulted in my having great empathy for the challenges and development of my clients.”
She began practicing yoga in 1998 when expecting her first child. Yoga was such a revelation to her that she chose not to attend birthing classes and instead used the practices that her yoga teacher taught her to home birth both of her children.
“It is through my ongoing practice of yoga and mindfulness meditation that I remain calm, strong and steady. This is a life long journey I have undertaken and one I am both passionate about and delighted to share with others.”
Anneliese teaches from her own private yoga studio in the tranquil setting of her garden in Barcombe, just ten minutes from Lewes in East Sussex and twenty minutes from Haywards Heath in West Sussex. The studio is fully equipped so that poses can be adapted for all abilities. It is also available to hire for other suitable classes or events.
