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 -
My message to you is that yoga is for everybody or every-body! The purpose of yoga is to unite mind and body but it also benefits us by improving flexibility and developing strength.
I began my 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.
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.
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, I have attained Level 1 and 2 in Mindfulness with Clear Mind Institute and I have trained in Pregnancy Yoga with Classical Yoga.
It is through my ongoing practice of yoga and mindfulness meditation that I remain calm, strong, 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.
I am privileged to teach from my own private yoga studio in the stunning setting of my garden in Barcombe, just ten minutes from Lewes in East Sussex. The studio is fully equipped so that poses can be adapted for all abilities. I also teach from Soulfit in Lewes.
