What my clients say
Very powerful and relaxing.
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!
I am so pleased I gave myself permission to make this experience, to really feel peace and understand something towards the full flow of the breath and therefore another step towards living a full and complete life.
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
Anandi is a wonderful teacher with her own personal style that makes learning yoga an experience that will stay with you forever. She has the ability to create an environment that allows you to relax and be yourself, with her gentle coaching techniques you will be both encouraged and motivated to try something new, knowing you are in the presence of a true Master.
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.
Interesting to hear a holistic explanation of the breath as apposed to an anatomical one. Useful breathing exercise I can do at home or on transport when I am stressed out!
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!
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.

How organised and disciplined are you? Do you find you’re really good at making “to-do” lists, but not so good at actually ticking things off it? Always chasing your tail, and finding it impossible to fit anything else at all into your day?
Perhaps you think something like a five-minute meditation at each end of your day can’t possibly make any difference?
Think again! […]
If you have never tried chanting a mantra before, you might feel pretty daft trying it for the first time. But if you can get over that feeling and go with it, you may well find that your mantra becomes a life-long companion to you.
Mantra yoga is probably as old as yoga itself, and since we’re still doing it all these years later there must be something in it! […]
I happened to be at a friends the other day staying over night and she produced her version of bedtime cocoa. I loved it so much, I thought I would share!!! It’s a great tryptophan hit and full of amazing goodness for a blissful nights sleep.
Tryptophan, by the way, is an essential amino acid that your body needs to produce serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is the mood regulator and produces melatonin which regulates sleep. You have to eat tryptophan as your body cannot produce it, what better way to get that than with a bit of added chocolate! […]
