Anneliese Wells

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! Her empathic approach is founded from her own journey with mental illness and in being what she describes as ‘stiff for a yoga teacher.’

These two elements of mind and body have given her an embodied understanding of the needs of her clients. she supports you using props where necessary to ensure you develop at a pace that suits. 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 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 and Uckfield in East 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.

Spending time in nature is so important to your wellbeing and the surroundings of Birchwood Yoga studio set you up for a calming, restorative experience.

You have to learn how to listen to your body, going with it and not against it, avoiding all effort or strain and centering your attention on that very delicate point, the back of the waist (where the spine moves in two opposite directions). You will be amazed to discover that, if you are kind to your body, it will respond in an incredible way.
