Shahara Jagrati MattinglyFounder / 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.

I love the structure of the retreat
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. It’s life changing for everyone or anyone who wants to improve and transform their waking life and anyone who wants to improve their sleep. I loved, loved, loved it
The most authentic experience humanly possible
I loved the retreat, it touched so many things. It was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I feel rested and rejuvenated. Anandi put so much effort and such attention to detail
Anandi’s retreat has provided me with an overview of Ayurveda and has given me the enthusiasm to practice yoga. It has opened up a new part of my mind and helped me to become more balanced and grounded.
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’s not included:
Alison Francis, Anandi
Ever since my twenties, my journey in natural healing began as a fitness instructor, igniting a passion that evolved over two decades in the beauty industry.
My interest in beauty and rejuvenation took centre stage, but the obstacle of sleep deprivation prompted a transformative exploration into Eastern sciences, specifically yoga and Ayurveda.
From battling chronic insomnia to achieving restful nights and sustained vitality through the tools I now teach, my focus has shifted over the years. Delving into Ayurvedic rejuvenation as a holistic endeavour, I recognised that sleep, a vital pillar of Ayurveda, is intricately connected to overall well-being.
True rejuvenation requires nourishment through the right foods and the cultivation of life force energy.
Responding to numerous inquiries about my journey using breathwork to overcome insomnia, I recently authored and published ‘Breathe Better, Sleep Better.’ This book aims to share a crucial life lesson: attempting to control the breath restricts rather than enhances it, mirroring a broader truth about life. To achieve health and restful sleep, creating space, relinquishing control, and being present are essential.
The genesis of my retreats stemmed from the realisation that people crave the time and space to learn self-care techniques, liberating themselves from stress accumulated through sleep deprivation and overwork.
I firmly believe that rejuvenative health practises and quality sleep are the keys to feeling and maintaining youthfulness.
In my retreats, I guide participants in making informed lifestyle choices, selecting the right foods, and adopting rituals that contribute to staying vibrant and youthful.
It’s a holistic approach to well-being, imparting the wisdom needed for sustained vitality and a rejuvenated sense of self.
