Anja Yoga
Anja Yoga Mission Statement

A safe, nurturing space for your yoga and meditation practice to support your health and wellbeing on and off the mat

There is energy in nature, all around us and within us – yoga allows us to connect with this energy through the harmony between body, breath and mind. My classes are open to every body and every soul.

I offer a combination of online resources, weekly classes, outdoor yoga and various events that all link in with my passion for living seasonally, the outdoors, mind-body connection and elements in nature.

Give yourself the gift of movement for the body, a welcome pause for the mind, and exploring the beauty of the breath. I welcome you on the mat to explore just as you are, and always offer plenty of options for poses to suit all abilities.

Check out the different class descriptions and get in touch if you have any questions.

In this class we explore a stronger physical practice. This class is suitable for anyone who is looking for a stronger hatha yoga practice with gentle and supporting guidance. There is a specific focus for climbers. As a climber and having taught yoga for climbers for several years, I know that there are some specific areas where yoga can offer amazing support for climbing.
