Welcome & love to you...... my name is Anna.
I used to co-own a yoga & pilates studio in Forest Gate. Over time the yoga flourished and we needed our freedom and our own space to spread our wings and soar......
We found our space, It's flipping AMAZING!!!!
I found my way to rejoicing in peoples differences by discovering our connections and similarities.
I have been blessed to have strong links through my life's work, with people who are neuro diverse.
It is through this "work" *blessing* and yoga, that I realised how much we have to learn from eachother.
I strongly believe that it is the disconnect (the feeling that we are somehow better or worse than another being) that causes much suffering and feelings of isolation. I also believe strongly that through acceptance, and non judgment, of firstly ourselves and then others, that we get to taste real freedom.
It is my intention to bring all of my communities together through yoga, and music & dance & opportunity......so that we can share with eachother our unique incredible gifts and offerings.......
We Are All Branches of the Same Tree
More recently I have been diagnosed with breast cancer, which has been such a blessing I cannot tell you!! I have been on such an incredible healing journey & learned so so much about our bodies innate desire to help us, to guide us, to heal us. To enable us to grow & access beauty & joy like we just cannot imagine with our limited brains!! ha ha.
I am so excited to share what I've learned.
Belief & Trust is all.
Love heals all......when you surrender to that your life becomes a waking miracle...
come join me in this miracle we call life.
My arms are open to you.
Q: How would you like people to feel when they leave your class?
A: Ohhhhh soooo much! The Yoga glow of course...(it's a thing!).......I would like them mainly to feel their body...to have (more of) an awareness of its capabilities & possibilities, its strength, it’s power & too its beauty.
I believe one of the bodies main aims is to heal itself...I would like them to feel, believe (& know) in the healing power of the body.
I want them to feel empowered, accepted, and aware of love, & how flipping awesome they are if they just accept & be open to it....... Then that knowledge that everything is going to be ok........really, it's all going to be ok......more than ok....sooo ok!
Q: What is one of your favourite inspirational quotes right now?
A: “Love is not a relationship, love is a state of being: it has nothing to do with anybody else. One is not “in love” one IS love. And of course when one is love, one is in love. But that is an outcome, - a by product, that is not the source. The source is that one is love .”
Q: What is your favourite posture/asana right now?
A: Ha ha this is a silly question!! Like asking your favourite all time tune or movie..! It often changes depending on what I need in that moment...
However.....to do personally..Warrior II is a posture that always makes me feel like a female warrior of strength & power & beauty....the posture whispers (and sometimes screams ) of infinite possibilities and flow....Looking through that front middle finger to my future..I know I’m alive when I’m in warrior II.
To teach....I struggle to teach a class without pigeon.... it’s such a great posture for bringing relief to the back... I know it helped shift my sciatica, and as it seems to get deep into the soas muscle it often creates emotional shifts too!! It’s a brilliant one!!
They all are really!!
Q: If you could be any animal what would it be & why?
A: Ha ha I love animals sooooo much! I’ve thought about this one before. I feel it would be a dolphin...they are free & wild & emotionally intelligent, they love & use their bodies for fun, for the sheer enjoyment of life.. They are graceful & love & look out for each other....I would love to share some of these incredible qualities of a dolphin
Q: What positive change would you like to see in the world right now?
A: I would love to see people stepping into their power/love ....believing in themselves & using that power to look out for & care for themselves & others.... actually to be completely honest I would like us all to love and learn from animals instead of torturing & eating them...we have so much to learn...
Q: Are you pregnancy trained?
A: No I’m not, however I am going to do the training soon... I hate missing out on this incredible process...
