Anne Bird, Qualified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist
Yoga helps to stimulate the body's natural ability to heal itself. Over time, through posture work (Asanas), breathing practices (Pranayama) and Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation), yoga encourages the body and mind to become flexible, strong and resilient. Yoga can also help to develop an awareness of an inner peace and stillness that we all have within us which can, with practice, be tapped into at any time.
I have been practicing Yoga for over 30 years. What's kept me practicing for so many years? The positive benefits I feel from regular Asanas, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra, include reduced stress levels, stable blood pressure, less prone to mood swings, flexible joints, good core muscle strength and less back pain.
I qualified as a British Wheel of Yoga Teacher in 2004, as a Dru Yoga Teacher in September 2012 and Dru Yoga Therapist in November 2016. I use the knowledge I have gained from these qualifications to provide enjoyable yoga practices in a calm environment. To keep up-to-date with new practices and the benefits of these practices I regularly attend continued professional development days..
