About Anita

A little about me... 

I love yoga and the spiritual side of yoga, for me yoga is for the mind, the body and the soul! I have practised yoga all my adult life , over 30 years. I love to share my passion for yoga and for me yoga isn't exercise! Yoga has  benefited me by giving me a greater sense of well being. When I practice yoga regularly -  I sleep better, I feel less achy, I feel strong and calm. Life always has  its ups and downs  but with regular practice, yoga has helped me to be  resilient and better able to cope with  stress.  

The yoga I teach is for  real everyday people  - you don't need to be able to touch your toes or do the splits and even if you have an injury I will give modifications.  I teach traditional Hatha yoga but I do bring in  a few other influences as I like to  bring in the softer side to yoga with influences from Qi Gong and Tai Chi, there's quite a lot of lying down too.  My classes are themed offering variety and meaning to the ancient practices, my classes include breathing practices -pranayama, meditation and relaxation often with my Himalayan Singing Bowls or yoga nidra.

I  have a love of  travel, having grown up abroad, coming to England when I was 13 and I am now  lucky to live on Hayling Island on the South Coast of England where the water is never far away. I enjoy nature and anything to do with the sea- walking by the sea, paddle boarding, swimming with the occasional cold water dip,  making  me feel alive! 

 I  completed my yoga teacher  training with FRYOG  200 hours, a 2 year course with the  Friends of Yoga in   2019. Since then I have continued to learn about the ancient practice yoga, completing many in depth training courses.  I love teaching and sharing the practice of yoga. 

Prior to teaching yoga I was a Therapeutic Radiographer for over 30 years looking after cancer patients.
