You made it such a special experience for us all Anandi - I learnt so much and understand so much more about achieving balance and well being in my life.

I really don't know how to say thank you except to say that I feel so happy, relaxed and full of energy and optimism now, and that's down to you!

Margaret Mackie

“Just superb. Anandi is so gifted in this and so giving of her time in all ways. It differs from other retreats in that it is so so unique and also intimate because of small numbers which allowed us to really get to know each other and also have a good laugh. I know what I need to work on for better sleep and I am definitely on track”

Tina Fotherby

“The retreat is an experience like no other. It was a relaxing yet action packed 5 days of physical and mental coaching in the vast field of yoga. My mind has expanded as well as feeling chilled, I am armed with exercises to use when I get home. Anandi is a very generous and giving individual and gave special attention to everyone in our group. It’s been completely perfect. Namaste”


“I have been to a number of Anandi’s retreats and will keep coming to them because they are such a refreshing escape from the demands of a busy life. Anandi is a fantastic yoga master and sleep expert and I would highly recommend any of her retreats just to experience the quality of time for yourself in the presence of a wonderful teacher”

Linda Heagerty

“Absolutely lovely and exceeded my expectations”

Jane Famous

Shahara Jagrati Mattingly

Founder / Delicious Awakening

Anandi is a fabulous yoga teacher. Her patient energy infused with her gentle, soothing voice made it easy to relax. Her knowledge and expertise of anasa and pranayama as well as yogic philosophy made her classes more personal and informative than most. She is a master teacher and wonderfully compassionate spirit.

Anandi is so giving of her time inside and outside of the workshops. She created immediately a welcoming, informal and safe place so I could instantly relax and open up to this incredibly supportive experience

This is the most impressive retreats I’ve been to, and I’ve been to a lot. It’s four retreats in one: yoga, Ayurveda, sleep, philosophy and lifestyle. Such deep wisdom and knowledge with such an incredible amount of love.

I left Anandi’s retreat able to breathe more deeply and relax more fully as a result. I know that it will help me sleep better. Along with the practices I learned at this beautiful retreat, I highly recommend Anandi’s teaching to anyone anywhere

What others say about

Claire Uttne

You have done so much to bring balance and harmony.  I unquestionably get more sleep during the course of each week now - and even when I wake in the early hours, you have given me the resources to find an inner peace that has alluded me for so long.  Thank you

Charlotte Watkins

Alison was really warm and has a good insight into sleep problems. The report she creates is in depth and reflective of you as an individual and brings with it beneficial recommendations. I would highly recommend working with Anandi

Debbie Lythe

Alison was dedicated in helping me and had the depth of knowledge, understanding and patience to guide me through the course was which fascinating, enjoyable and successful. I now go to bed without anxiety and sleep throughout the night every night. It is a revelation and I cannot recommend this course enough. Alison is a true expert in her field – if you have sleep issues that need resolving you should definitely do this course. With all my heart thank you!

Keeley Poore

These programmes Alison has designed and conducts is nothing short of miraculous if followed with her guidance. A weekly session keeps you on track, she makes it so very easy to understand - it's so logical, immensely informative and most of all - it works! Her understanding of breath work and it's power should be a national programme of education.

Dale Darley

Anyone who is having trouble sleeping, please talk with Anandi. It’s never just about the nighttime. There are so many factors affecting our sleep, and she is a master at uncovering the deeper reasons

Anil Kumar


I worked with Alison and have the say that the results have been phenomenal. I feel better just through and through and have more energy than ever: prior to meeting Alison I had an erratic sleep pattern and always felt I was chasing my tail trying to stay on top of things. Now I feel I have a sense of calm and structure to my daily routine - thanks!

James Rogerson

I came to Alison for advice after struggling with severe insomnia for over 15 years. I had been a teacher for most of this time dealing with high levels of stress and developed anxiety and poor sleep patterns. My sleeping had got so bad that I had got to the point where I was relying on taking sleeping pills most nights of the week.Over the years I had tried various other treatments: hypnosis, acupuncture, counselling and other sleep programmes. Sometimes these might have worked in the short term but I never really felt I was able to overcome the problems I had with sleep.Alison has taught and encouraged me to discover how I can change my daily habits to enable me to take back control of my sleep. Once I followed her programme of what to do I could soon feel myself changing for the better. I am incredibly grateful to her and would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with similar issues around anxiety and sleep disorders such as I have had.
