Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

Hi, my name is Anthea, and I began teaching Yoga in 2004 after working in various modalities of therapies, such as Swedish Massage, Natural Nutrition, Metamorphic Technique, Ayurveda and Aromatherapy. This has given me a solid foundation of how our bodies work, which supports me as a Yoga Therapist and Yoga Teacher. Throughout my classes and 1-2-1 therapy sessions I use verbal and physical adjustments to ignite positive change and effect in you, which are safe and conducive to your abilities allowing you to progress at a steady pace without slipping back or pushing your body outwith your limitations. I see positive changes in my peers, students and clients everyday. Clients and students come back with a benefit after their very first yoga 1-2-1 or class, and it's an absolute honour to be passing on the traditional teachings of Hatha Yoga. My students are of varying levels of experience, from absolute beginner to teacher. I have watched clients build mobility back into their bodies, remove physical and emotional pains, release fatigue and anxiety, reduce and stop pharmaceutical drugs. I have taught students that started with me as absolute beginners, and progressed on to becoming yoga teachers themselves and starting their own yoga businesses in and around Glasgow. Over my Yoga Practise of 14 years it is has supported me and had a profound effect on my life, physically, mentally and emotionally. It's an enriching gift to be passing on yoga and helping others to improve their life on all levels. It is with humble respect and gratitude to my own teachers, past and present, (June Mitchell, Sri K Pattabhi Jois, John Scott, David Keil) for passing on the lineage of Classical Yoga to me. My deep gratitute goes to their lifetime of knowledge and their traditional teachings, and the instruction they have given and continue to give to me. I teach classes and see yoga clients on a 1-2-1 basis at Yoga Healing, which is a Beautiful yoga space only minutes from Byres Road in the West-end of Glasgow. Yoga Healing's calm, warm and peaceful feeling is condusive to the manner of my teaching, and students and clients enjoy coming there for class and sessions. If you are travelling from another area, Partick Lower Level Train is only 5 minutes walk away, and Kelvinhall Underground just around the corner on Dumbarton Road. I look forward to passing these teachings onto you with integrity, daily practise and greater purpose.
