What my clients say
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!
We sold our company last year and I was looking forward very much to a slower less frantic way of life. The lifestyle changed successfully except that I simply couldn’t switch my mind off after so many years of running the business. I started taking yoga with Anandi, it was so special, very spiritual and to my amazement, with her teaching, I found the inner peace and tranquillity that had eluded me for years. It has been life changing.
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 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.
After a very full on week, I was in a frantic space! Having the opportunity to slow down and centre myself through essential focus on breathing has literally rendered me a new person! I feel totally different peaceful, calm and positive!
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 obviously knows what she is doing. Great explanations of all the various breathing techniques and overall a really interesting and rewarding experience.
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
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.
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.
