Ann Wilson

Ann is a qualified Yoga Teacher RYT 200, certified with Yoga Alliance.

Her teaching style is Vinyasa Flow, focusing on breath awareness and body alignment.   This method of teaching will help you to gain strength, flexibility, release stress and find a general sense of wellbeing.

 

Ann believes that Yoga is so much more and that everyone should make it part of their everyday life.  Living the busy stressful lives we all do these days, with the physical body suffering with the un-balance of everyday life we need Yoga to re-balance the left and right side of the body so that we can develop harmony in the body and create that much needed space in the mind.

 

Yoga is accessible to everyone, so Ann invites you to grab your mat and join her for some ‘me time’ for a fun, challenging Vinyasa Flow class suitable for all levels. Ann welcomes and encourages everyone from absolute beginners right through to advanced levels of practice. 

And if you think Yoga is slow and boring, you haven’t practised Vinyasa Flow!!

 

Ann is currently teaching at Indigo Light Studios on Saturdays.
