Anne is based in Biggar. She teaches smaller and larger group classes as well as tailored one to ones and workshops. She studied for her 500h teacher training over two years with Yoga Scotland and has been practicing yoga for over 25 years.
In class, Hatha Yoga is taught at a pace that allows a student to turn attention inwards and notice sensations in their body, breath and mind. You can expect to encounter Asana or poses, breathwork, meditation and relaxation.
Anne is particularly interested in helping students to experience ways to let go of tension, be kind to themselves and find quietness of mind.
Mind-body integration, or somatic practices are also used in class help to calm the nervous system. For this reason, Anne’s classes may suit those who want to let go and relax. It’s important to create the right atmosphere in class so that it feels supportive and safe enough to explore movement that supports mentally and physically.
However, it would be wrong to suggest that Anne’s classes are never physically challenging either – though the aim is always that students are encouraged to find safe and compassionate ways to practice that honour their bodies in the here and now.
Anne is continuing her journey of learning and discovery with formal continuing professional development (as required for continued registration of Yoga Scotland) and in exploring movement and current developments in neuroscience in her own time.
