Annie Silverman is a highly qualified and experienced yoga practitioner and has been teaching classes and individuals for 20 years.
Annie is a member of the Association of Independent Yoga Practitioners (AIYP).
Annie's yoga is influenced by her own teachers: Mary Stewart, Chloe Fremantle, Monica Voss, Peter Blackaby and also by Vanda Scaravelli's "Awakening the Spine".
Our yoga adheres completely to the principles of alignment and is biomechanically sound. It takes us towards health and not away from it - people are unfortunately too good at hurting themselves!
We learn to move the spine: in extension, flexion, rotation and in side bending; all in an integrated way.
We also learn to ground, through our bones, in order to lose tension in muscles. We learn to balance and still lose tension.
We start to free up the respiratory system, i.e. once we are grounded and relaxed we can breathe better.
So in consequence we begin to really notice how we feel in our bodies. We become more at ease with ourselves and we can start to change physically and emotionally in our approach to the world around us.
If all of this sounds very serious, yes, the practice of yoga and its benefits are proven to be seriously effective but in addition our classes are always fun and with room for dialogue and exploration.
Principles of Our Yoga
My Yoga Inspiration
As a young Yoga student I saw people struggling and injuring themselves. Later I discovered there was another way! I stopped trying to simply achieve or to push myself. Instead I started to listen to my body, becoming more attentive and really feeling what I was doing. My body changed!
My experience as a Yoga teacher has further inspired my understanding of the huge benefits of this style of Yoga. I have taught not only complete beginners and seniors but also people with such health concerns as: arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, spinal, knee and hip problems, ME and also ex-cancer sufferers. I experienced at first hand the power of this Yoga in helping me to deal with family traumas and my own illness.
Quite simply this Yoga is life-changing!
