Offering Yoga Classes
Ann teaches Flowing Yoga, a style of yoga that helps you feel energised, focused and revitalised. This fun, friendly style of yoga will give you an energy boost and over time will improve your balance and coordination, strengthening your body and increasing resilience. Flowing Yoga explores various physical postures (asanas) that will lengthen and tone muscles, shedding tension and opening the body and heart, leaving you refreshed.
Breathwork (pranayama) and meditation are also included in Flowing Yoga. This will bring you fully into the present moment, calming the nervous system, and restoring your body's natural ability to heal and nurture itself. You can open up to a deeper knowing and wisdom hidden beneath our usual understanding. You’ll feel centred and uplifted, able to appreciate and enjoy all that your life offers.
Ann came to yoga in 2003 with an Ashtanga practice, loving the physical challenge of this style. As life placed different demands on her and her yoga, she reached out to other styles to meet her changing needs. Her teaching is now influenced by a broad range of styles, from invigorating Dynamic Vinyasa Flow to calmer Hatha and restful Yin Yoga. That yoga is much more than just an exercise routine and is endlessly adaptable is what keeps her coming back to the practice.
Ann regularly attends silent meditation retreats, including a month long session. This experience has given her a deep understanding the transformative effects that meditation can have, and she also includes meditation techniques in her teaching.
She has completed the 200 hour yoga teacher diploma at Yogacampus, studying with teachers with a variety of outlooks such as Liz Lark, Richard Freeman, Graham Burns and Sarah Litton. She studied Yin Yoga with Norman Blair. She is currently studying to become an Advanced (500 hour) teacher. She keeps up to date by attending workshops, and is registered with the International Yoga Alliance.
