Anthea began her career as a beauty apprentice in 1986 where she learned first hand about beauty & nutrition and how they can influence our well-being. Client’s concerns were mainly around weight problems and Anthea was responsible for preparing healthy foods and juices for the clients who attended the clinic.
In 1989 Anthea studied Beauty Therapy and after graduation specialised in the holistic therapies, Aromatherapy and Reflexology. Anthea enjoyed working with different people but knew she was yet to find the missing ingredient of what she was meant to be doing.
Anthea moved around working within a number of elite resorts, notably Skibo Castle, who gave her free rein and confidence to set her own ideas of Well Being Packages and she went beyond the Surface. After wonderful feedback she was ‘head-hunted’ to work with an international company to set up different spas and it was here she had her first taste of teaching in well-being therapies.
Anthea loved the vibe from the guests as they left the yoga sessions but she was working and rarely took part. It wasn’t until relocating back to Glasgow that she stumbled upon June Mitchell’s yoga class, at the onset of grieving a lost loved one in 2000 that she actually felt the immense relief and benefit that a dynamic yoga practice can have on your life.
Although there was toe-dipping going on over the years Anthea considers 2000 the year she began yoga and considers June to be one of the most influential people in her life. From only weeks with June Anthea began her daily yoga practice and graduated in 2004 as a Yoga Teacher with June Mitchell and Julie Hanson ( CYS Scotland) Over these formative years Anthea went to every workshop going and also studied Natural Nutrition, Ayurvedic Therapies, Reiki and The Metamorphic Technique.
In 2004 Anthea continued her training in India and Thailand, which included deepening her own personal yoga practice for 6 months with Pattabhi Jois and 3 months with Rolf & Marcy Naujokat. She then went to Prana Nature Cure Yoga Hospital in Tamil Nadu where she learned about the administration of yoga therapies, kriyas (cleansing techniques) meditation and pranayama (breath-work) techniques for therapeutic benefits.
On her return to the UK Anthea hand-picked the premises of Yoga Healing Glasgow which was known as Bodysense at the time and owned by Mari MacRitchie. When Marie re-located her business to Largs Anthea was given the opportunity to take over the premises and it was then in 2009 that Yoga Healing Glasgow was born.
Anthea also teaches groups of friends and collegues, weekly classes, immersions and weekend workshops. Do not hesitate to contact Anthea to chat more about your own personal yoga journey.
