What my clients say
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.
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.
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 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 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
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!
Beautifully planned session. About the right length to give you an insight into a practise which I could find of great use. Thank you.
Anandi you are a special person and a wonderfu teacher. Your meetings are always inspirationall and you are in the same wawe of your students.. lessons are great and your guide simply perfect. I’m glad I had the lucky chance to meet you!!
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!
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!

I’ve written posts before about using alternative therapies to overcome sleep issues and stress, but there’s something else that can be really helpful in overcoming illness and stressful situations… and it’s not something you would normally think of as an “alternative therapy.” Nevertheless, this is a practice that has been scientifically proven to help in all manner of illnesses, and is an excellent reliever of stress. And best of all, it’s entirely free! […]
Without a doubt, the best time to do your practice is early morning… there’s a special energy at that time of day. Before the dawning of the early morning sun, there is a special, magical time called brahmamuhurtha. The energy is sattvic, meaning it’s pure; the mind hasn’t woken up and started all that chatter yet. […]
These days, we want everything right now. Fast food, next day delivery, drive-through, even pain killers that dissolve on our tongues so that we don’t have to wait for a pill to hit our stomachs. Everything is right now. Everything must be instant. […]
