What my clients say
I love your teachings, Anandi, you are always so prepared and competent, and radiating happiness and wisdom! Just your mere presence is an inspiration for me. You are so positive and evolved, its impossible not to be aware of the best in me when you are around! I was impressed by the high level of your competence and professionality. At the same time, you are an amazing host in all your kindness and generosity. The place is so beautiful and your wisdom and sense of humour are a fountain of inspiration
I feel very fortunate to have taken part in today’s class. Upon meeting Anandi, she radiates warmth and I found this so very relaxing and calming. The breathing exercises made me more conscious of my own breathing habits and anatomy which made sense. The best sleep relaxation came at the end when I woke feeling unable to speak! Thank you Anandi for this opportunity
Anandi is a wonderful person, beautiful lady and gifted yoga teacher. Her classes are elaborately designed to be safe and fulfil students needs. It was challenging – at the same time allot of fun, I enjoyed them very much.
I found the morning extremely interesting and was amazed at how much I did not know about my own breathing. The exercises were great, spot on for time and number of people in the room. Thank you Anandi – I look forward to practising the art of de-stressing!
In just a short while as a student of Anandi I’ve experienced a revolution in my practice and a deepening in understanding of the meaning of the path of Yoga, beyond what I had previously ventured to imagine. Anandi’s classes are complete and utterly positive and empowering, combining asana with meditation, mantra, prana and learning philosophies and practices of Yoga. More than yoga classes, I would define Anandi’s yoga as a journey, which has an all encompassing effect on my life. Not only have I experienced my practice deepening and improving, but I’ve felt its effects on the scope of my life outside of class, helping me find a more peaceful and healthy relationship with work, family and the challenges of every day life.
Primordial Sound MeditationI have made vague attempts at meditation several times throughout my life, but always ended up giving up, feeling like I was no good at it. When I started Anandi’s online course in Primordial Sound Meditation, I was determined I would succeed this time. I expected it to be a lot of hard work, but I was prepared to put the effort in because I’d read about all of the benefits associated with meditation. I was a little dubious at the thought of the whole course being online – I’ve never done brilliantly at online study. But this worked really well – because you’re not working at anything. I was beyond surprised to find that, in my first meditation after my matra ceremony, I meditated for 40 minutes without once fidgeting or wondering whether it was time to stop yet. The emailed webinars were very reassuring and interesting, offering advice at just the right time for me. There was no pressure involved; the email turns up, you watch the webinar, and a few days later the next one arrives. I have watched each webinar every time as I found them really useful for reminding myself what I was doing and why I was doing it, but also for reminding me that I was not failing or doing it wrong. When you sign up to do the course you commit to meditate every day for 3 weeks, because it takes 21 days to form a habit. During those 21 days, you get a daily “21 days of meditation” email with a quote, a little message from Anandi and maybe a video or link to an interesting site. There is so much information available, which is fabulous if you like to completely immerse yourself in what you’re doing – but also, none of it is necessary for meditation, so there’s no pressure there. Since completing the course, I have continued to meditate. I had a few days where I didn’t meditate, and I noticed immediately how rubbish and generally miserable I felt. Was this how I lived my life every day before I learned to meditate? Now I make sure I meditate every day!
Very insightful workshop. You covered allot of material, which might overwhelm some, but gives everyone something to take away. Sleep aside, the importance of breath in daily life (mind-body-spirit) is beneficial to everyone.
Anandi is the consummate professional. Anyone embarking on one of her life-enhancing courses can look forward to a sense of physical and mental renewal.
Anandi is an extraordinary teacher and an inspiring friend, not only is she professional, competent and qualified as an instructor but her kindness, joy and caring and her capacity to share these aspects in an empowering and compassionate way with others is truly unique and precious.
Namaste, Anandi is a fabulous yoga teacher. I took several of her classes while we were in India together. Her patient energy infused with her gentle, soothing voice made it easy to relax comfortably into poses. Her knowledge and expertise of anasa and pranayama as well as yogic philosophy made her classes more personal and informative than most. I highly recommend Alison Anadi to anyone wishing to deepen their yoga practice. She is a master teacher and wonderfully compassionate spirit. Hari Om
