Catherine Annis


Catherine teaches yoga inspired by the pioneering approach of Vanda Scaravelli. This is a gentle yet demanding form of Hatha yoga, which focuses on developing core strength through releasing tension and creating length in the spine.

It's suitable for all ages and levels of experience, working intelligently with the anatomical structure and function of the body.

Catherine Annis is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga and is a member of the teacher advisory committe at triyoga, London's premiere yoga studio. In 2017 she created the Intelligent Yoga Teacher Training Course (iytt), an 18 month, anatomically focused teacher training course with world-leading teachers Peter Blackaby and Gary Carter and accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga. 

Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been  practicing since the mid 1970s.  Having studied various styles of yoga including Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.

Catherine’s daily yoga practice and  teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and  alignment to reveal and release the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine.  She holds a Masters degree in ballet studies, and is a qualified Thai massage  practitioner, and it is this interest in the body which informs and inspires her teaching.
