Classes for beginners and practised beginners.
Restorative gentle but deceptively powerful Hatha yoga that will leave you grounded and re-energised.
Be guided into tranquility as I walk you through each posture with clear instructions and a guided meditation, enabling you to find ease and go deeper into relaxation.
A refreshing class taking you on a journey far away from today’s stresses and family pressure.
Hatha practise in the tradition of Integral Yoga which is a methodical system integrating all branches of yoga for health and harmony.
I am also educated in Ayurveda, the holistic healthcare practise of India for longevity and wellbeing.
What Integral Hatha Yoga is good for:
- Supports the flexibility & strength of the spine
- Tones & strengthens the overall body
- Soothes the nervous system
- Balances hormones and energy levels
- Heals the effects of chronic stress
- Quietens a restless mind
- Beats fatigue
Come find a space to relax, let go and surrender to yourself.

Pushpa is the name given to me on completing Integral Yoga Teacher Training. In Sanskrit it means flower. Whilst I was hoping to be given a fierce goddess name I am very fond of it. Shortly after I came across the word Pua in Hawaiian, clearly of the same root which also means flower and read about its meaning as blooming, growing and flourishing in what you cultivate, restoring balance and referring to the healing power of flowers, amongst other clever interpretations. I like to think this is what it’s all about.
“I did not expect to enjoy yoga as I have always been so hyperactive and done high cardiovascular sports only. I thought I that I would not be able to concentrate and would not have the patience and enough flexibility to do yoga. How wrong I was! My flexibility has improved week by week, I have learned to switch off my thoughts and concentrate on each exercise. I feel that my problematic shoulder and back area feels much lighter and without muscle tension anymore. I enjoy your class as it is never the same, we learn different postures which makes the class enjoyable, interesting and on a personal level challenging. You always take time to explain and show how to execute the postures correctly. Your deep relaxation and breathing exercise at the end of each session is so good a finale to the class and I really feel purified and energised after each class. Thank you for introducing me to yoga and helping to discover something new in me!”

“Anne’s yoga offers a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience. I love the eye exercises and Anne has a very soothing voice with the yoga chants. The poses are expertly demonstrated and I particularly found the relaxation session at the end a great opportunity to leave everything behind and relax deeply. Thanks Anne for some lovely yoga.”

“You have increased in confidence hugely in your yoga sessions, and I really enjoy coming to them.
As you know I’m one of your older clients and I have been to yoga sessions before, but because you are calm and demonstrate the principles of the exercises so patiently, I feel I have increased to confidence too! I am certainly pushing myself much further than I did and I’m delighted. The meditation session is just as important to me in this fast- moving world, and gives me space to think about “me” without feeling selfish. I do feel calmer when we have finished.”
