About

How Many Yogis... can you fit in a car?

I wondered when 5 of my teachers drove off in this tiny vehicle after a brilliant few days learning about Anahata Yoga in Salzburg in 2015. I have never been able to shake that image. As I like the funny side of life, "How Many Yogis does it take to change a lightbulb" followed that thought soon after. When in 2016 my teacher, Peter Clifford asked us, his students, to help spread Anahata Yoga it became "How Many Yogis does it take to change the world?" Which ever question speaks most to you, I believe there is something great for everyone in practising yoga. Anahata Yoga is very accessible and should be available for everyone. How Many Yogis can we create, together?

Anahata Yoga

Learning to love yourself is not as scary and airy fairy as it may sound. Be compassionate about the things you want to change and improve the quality of your life. One step at the time.

Who we are

During her travels working on (music, comedy & arts) festivals and conferences worldwide she gained an interest in yoga, initially to relax and keep fit.

Rachael Hinton

Rachael is a 35-year-old live music promoter and marketer with a degree in Fine Art from Falmouth College of Arts. She has recently had a baby and devotes the majority of her time to being a mum. On the look out for some form of exercise to do that fits into the life of a parent she came across Anahata Yoga and liked the way it incorporates meditation helping her managing her energy levels. Through training with Sytske they came up with the idea of running sessions for parents where they can also bring their babies along.

Testimonials

Testimonials from new Anahata Yogis:

Marie: "I had never been much into yoga before taking a class with Sytske. I was told to try it out to manage stress and learn breathing techniques during the early days of my pregnancy. It worked wonders! I felt more relaxed and slept much better. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a little more peace in the hustle and bustle of their daily lives."

Matilda: "Sytske taught my girlfriend and I when we both had bad backs. She took the time to find out where we had issues and how our movement was affected. Her personalised and careful approach ensured everything was suitable. She explains and demonstrates movements and poses accurately and simply. Her light and friendly style is great. She has extensive knowledge but doesn't over-complicate or use too much jargon. I would recommend her to anyone."

Carl: “Having done Pilates in the past I was intrigued by the thought of doing some Yoga with Sytske teaching. The session was short but positive, her instructions and explanations were precise, nothing other than what was required and the actual movements were helpful to me and achieved what she said they would.
I will be going back for more..

Nadja: "Even for me, as an unpracticed yoga beginner, the short encounter I had with Sytske was enough to intrigue me. The gentleness of her instructions, her empathetic guidance as well as the complete lack of performance pressure came as a revelation. A nonverbal allowance to ‚simple be‘. It was a beautiful experience which I am sure to repeat sooner rather than later.
