My first encounter yoga was in 2000 in India where I went travelling for a year. I completed a one-month long yoga course and I was then convinced that this is what I would like to be doing the rest of my life. It took me a decade to realise that I should actually teach it and returned to India to complete my Yoga Teacher Training Course, which enabled me to change my life completely. Since then Yoga is an integral part of me and I strive to continually learn. I teach from the heart and only from personal experience. It is an honour to share this ancient science and art with others.

Every day I feel the need to take some time for myself and practise yoga. It feels my mind connects with my body and they really communicate in and amazing way together. It allows me to really listen to myself (body, mind and soul). I am able to fully understand my body, by knowing what it really needs. Also I learnt to really communicate with my mind and it gave me the ability to stop the conversation for a while, making place for inner peace, letting myself enjoy good energy and the beauty in each thing.

My training and teaching experience allows me to combine traditional Indian Yoga styles with a contemporary western approach to authentically help guide others to find their own love for, and benefits from Yoga.

My teaching is spontaneous, light-hearted and I aim to adapt to meet the energies and needs of the group.

I am deeply connected to the spiritual aspects of Yoga, but I also know that to tame your mind and find the still and small voice inside, you need to start with the physical body and perfect your asanas (postures).


I am also offering Ayurvedic Massage which is a very relaxing and soothing massage with a cleansing effect.

I also offer Private yoga classes in the comfort of your own home or in my private studio.

Testimonials after sessions with Anand

Cant wait till the next session.

I've travelled to many centres and countries over the past decades to learn vedic wisdom, and to find Anand teaching right here where I now live ...  It was such a joy for me to find another traditional teacher of the vedic wisdom.

His humour, sensitivity and perception made his teachings all the more enjoyable.

They say when the student is ready the teacher appears....

Maybe there are many of us who are now ready as this wise, perceptive and humourous teacher has come to us.

Shakti Sue Friston -Yoga teacher Vedic student for 28 years


I found Anand very easy to talk to and felt that he has a wide knowledge of the spectrum of Indian philosophy and a keen and practical understanding of the interplay of female and male energies. Our session was an enjoyable mix of talks and meditation exorcises. I have no hesitation in recommending his workshops.

Matthew Bragg, Shropshire, TM teacher for 37 years


I came away from Anand's workshop feeling wonderful. Full of wonder of how easily, with simple exercises he had produced a deep sense of peace and flow for me. And although I have practised yoga for many years found his facilitation contained new words of wisdom, I had not heard before. These now sit comfortably, like sparkling little gems, within the fabric of my own life's understandings. I am very grateful and glad I decide to attend.

Testimonials from Ildiko's classes


Yoga with Ildy has improved my physical strength and flexibility, as well as making me feel wonderfully energised, relaxed and calm. Throughout the yoga sessions we all receive Ildy's friendly support, encouragement and guidance in equal measure.  She is always aware of the needs of everyone and even raises a giggle here and there.  Taking up yoga with Ildy has been the best decision I have made to improve my health and well-being." CR



`I really enjoy Ildy`s classes as she pays so much attention to aligment and also she creates such a positive atmosphere, a laugh here and there and we are all just thriving in our poses. I always come away from her classes rejuvenated and refreshed and not only in body but mind too.`



`Ildy has already shown me the importance of breathing..funny but I've never really thought about it before. I've previously only done fitness yoga so now to realise how much more I can achieve in each pose by being led by my breathing is amazing.  

When I leave her morning class I am so balanced and grounded I feel like I'm shaping my day rather than being a victim of it.`  



Testimonials from Ildiko's massages


My experience of an Ayurvedic massage was one of complete relaxation and bliss.

Ildy is a very friendly and welcoming masseur and I felt at ease straight away.

The bed is a good height and very comfortable.

Deep breaths begin the massage with gentle pressure on your back and then she begins.

The oil is selected to match your skin and relaxation needs and is warm.

As Ildy works through the areas of your body you feel yourself sinking deeper into a state of

Relaxation. Your muscles release and relax completely. When you lie on your back Ildy uses an

Eye pillow which gently covers your eyes and helps you to shut out everything else.

I can highly recommend an Ayurvedic massage with Ildy.

Caroline Bennett


I arrived for my massage with no particular back problems, but I was feeling stiff and stress levels had been creeping up at work. The Ayurvedic massage that Ildy performed was a complete tonic & I left feeling relaxed, soothed and supple! The pressure applied seemed exactly right to get stuck into any knotty areas,  and at times I nearly drifted off to sleep. I will definitely book another massage with Ildy.



“I found the massage Ildy gave me to be relaxing and restorative.  She has a good technique that reached deep into my muscles that certainly need attention.  Body, neck & head benefited from her confident and intuitive touch.  Thank you Ildy - I feel more balanced and look forward to another session.  Jacquie, Forest of Dean “
