1-2-1 Yoga Therapy with Anthea – Daily by Appointment

“I met Anthea when my old yoga teacher went overseas and its been the best decision to stay with her.I have a chronic illness(with dietary needs).Most of the time i’m well but when i’m ill,i need to take it easy and slow down yoga for a wee while.All of this Anthea understands.She takes the time to listen to me and seems to know what my body needs in my yoga practice.I always feel alive and open after each 1-2-1 and this feeling carries on when i do my own practice at home.My core is getting stronger and my condfindence in my practice is getting stronger also.If i have any problems i just phone Anthea for advice and help.She’s a excellent teacher.” (Dawn)

“I was advised to experiment with yoga after a niggling leg injury, which seemed to originate in the sciatic area of my backside, started to hinder my fitness regime. I had been through the physiotherapy and acupuncture ‘hoops’, with only limited success. After a small amount of research into yoga classes in the Glasgow area, I called Anthea and asked her and her dynamic yoga to help me with the problem.  The therapy started on a one to one basis and within three sessions I was delighted to find that with the help of yoga I was able to manage my pain to the point where I was able to run virtually pain free again. Unfortunately work has meant that I am no longer able to take part in Anthea’s yoga practice and I have to confess, I am yet to find a suitable substitute…” (Matt)

“I have been having 1-2-1 Yoga Sessions with Anthea Simpson for almost a year. She is a superb teacher who takes the time to fully explain each pose and how it helps the body.  I would recommend her to anyone!” (Graeme)

I have found her to be extremely intuitive, compassionate and empathetic. She certainly does produce “yoga healing” in her sessions. For example, I couldn’t sit cross-legged or kneel a year ago and now I can – thanks to the tremendous knowledge Anthea has of human anatomy and physiology. I have found Anthea’s “yoga healing” has brought me peace of mind and friends have remarked that I have an “inner calm” and “better posture”. I am thrilled!” (Pam)

1-2-1 Yoga Therapy with Claire – Daily by Appointment

‘I was amazed and very excited about how quickly the specific exercises worked for me. They were obviously the perfect ones for my condition. After suffering many months of discomfort and pain in my right hip and leg, within a few days, the quality of discomfort I felt changed to something with more movement and mobility and less protective ‘holding’ of the body. The Reiki was wonderful, as were the breathing exercises. It’s almost as if Claire teaches you the tools specific to you in order for your mind/body to heal itself. Claire is highly intuitive and hits the spot with her suggestions and recommendations. Her yoga therapy is medicine for mind and body for the individual. Not just recommended – this is very necessary for everyone’s own well-being’ (Nadine McBay, Massage Therapist)

Monday, Wednesday & Friday’s General Yoga Class for All Levels 1230pm

“Not done yoga before – and sadly a long way away from first flush of youth – so I thought of yoga to help improve my flexibility and overall fitness. Thankfully, it is working – and my real good fortune was in finding Anthea, who knows her profession well and is able to transfer her undoubted skills in part to the likes of me. She is an excellent teacher with great people skills.” (David)

Tuesday’s & Thursday’s Intermediate Hatha Yoga Class with Anthea

“I’ve been practising yoga for a long time but still feel need to improve my posture. I think Anthea is doing a great job with me, helping me understand and ‘feel’ my body while doing every asana. She loves yoga and is very good at transmitting her passion to the class.” (Paola)

Previous Classes & Workshops with Anthea

“I have only been attending Anthea’s Dynamic Hatha Yoga for about 3 months and the difference I feel is amazing. I am much more aware of my body, where is blocked and stiff, where I hold tension, my strengths and weaknesses and my posture esp. sitting. My diet has improved, my weight has dropped and I am much more flexible. It also feels great to stretch and release my muscles. I have also released old emotions and patterning and feel more positive and upbeat. The class is well taught and very supportive and I highly recommend anyone to come along and experience it for themselves.”(Fiona)

Anthea is truly a fantastic teacher. She is patient, attentive, knowledgeable about yoga and anatomy and always has time for students at the end of the class. I always feel fantastic after her class. My practice has come on so far and I am hugely thankful to Anthea for helping me progress. Her clear verbal adjustments have helped me to tune in to my own body and her hands on adjustments have helped me to understand how an asana should feel. You can tell that she has a passion for yoga and for helping people” (Rhona)

“I have practiced yoga at Anthea’s classes on and off over the past 18 months. I really enjoy her classes, think she explains the postures and breathing really well. I always leave class feeling clear headed and fully stretched, and find her a very encouraging teacher.” (Lorraine)
