What my clients say
If you want to explore the infinite power of body, mind and spirit, then Anandi will open the door of her beautiful home and provide a nuturing environment in which to do so
A wonderful 4 days which introduced me to a deeper understanding of the breath and its connection to sleep. I feel my mind and body have truely benefited and awakened from this event, much of which I will be adopting into my daily life
Beautifully planned session. About the right length to give you an insight into a practise which I could find of great use. Thank you.
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 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.
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.
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.
The best way to describe my experience was that I felt tired of lacking in energy at the beginning and after the workshop I was transported to another dimension returning feeling totally blissed out and energised!
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 obviously knows what she is doing. Great explanations of all the various breathing techniques and overall a really interesting and rewarding experience.
Latest From The Blog
I read an interesting article the other day, about how a lot of over-the-counter medicines don’t actually work terribly well. Things like cough medicines that are no better than good old-fashioned honey and lemon, creams for insect bites that work no more than any old antiseptic cream. It seems that as a country, the UK spends millions of pounds on these products in well-designed packaging that cost a lot more than traditional, old-fashioned remedies… but don’t work anywhere near as well as their flashy advertising suggests.

Don’t underestimate your sense of smell.
I know, it sounds odd but it’s true. Your sense of smell is way more powerful than you think. A scent can anchor us to certain emotional states: the smell of your grandmother’s perfume, the gym at your old school, the smell of a church, a farm, a stew cooking on the stove. All of these can transport us back in time in a flash, reminding us of our childhoods; memories long since forgotten. […]
Do you consider yourself to be healthy? Do you take your daily vitamin supplements, exercise regularly, eat a balanced diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables?
So many of us are ticking the boxes on that list of “things to make you healthy” – but we’re still not ticking the big one at the bottom, the one labelled “100% healthy and happy.” […]
