About

My intention is to facilitate a space for you to discover your inner wisdom, to support you support yourself. Our bodies know what we need. We just need to learn to listen.

In my offerings I draw on my experience and training in yoga, ayurveda, aromatherapy, flower essences and other teachings to convey information which can increase your awareness and growth. So you can create balance in your life; physically, mentally, emotionally.

Physically I can feel my body getting stronger and fitter since taking the classes and I can honestly say I feel more rejuvenated outside the class in daily life as well.— Rachel

When I discovered Yoga it felt like “coming home”. I found a way to feel embodied, a sense of balance and a way to quieting my mind.

When I studied Ayurveda I found the language, principles and philosophy that convey how I experience our being and the world. It simply makes sense.

Within all of this I have been studying, practising and working with flower essences, trained in aromatherapy and massage therapy, herbal remedies, using crystal and gemstones for inspiration and healing, studied coaching, reiki and numerous self care, spiritual and esoteric teachings.

Finding balance is a like riding a bicycle: you have to continue and keep going. The journey never ends.

I am always a student. But I also share what I have learned, studied and practised. And what works with my students and clients. Here is how we can work together.

My Bio

For as long as I remember I have been searching for balance, meaning and ways to facilitate healing. My yoga practise started more the 20 years ago and soon after I travelled to India where I did my first Teacher Training course in 1998. This was also my first introduction to ayurveda. I have officially been teaching yoga since 2015. A journey that has taken to me co-create and be the course leader on teacher training courses and CPD courses for yoga teachers.

As a natural extension of my interest in yoga I furthered my studies into the science of Ayurveda. After 4 years full time study, including apprenticeships in Ayurvedic hospitals in India, I gained a BSc and PGdip in Ayurveda from Middlesex University. With a great interest in women’s health I trained as Doula with acclaimed obstetrician Dr Michel Odent and doula, Liliana Lamis.

I incorporate yoga and ayurveda into an embodied practise for well-being, health and grounded transformation in body and mind.  Drawing on my experience as an aromatherapist, massage therapist and knowledge and training in Western herbs, flower remedies and healing in my individual ayurvedic and yoga consultations.

I am delighted to share this knowledge on this website, in person and through medias such as Om Yoga Magazine, Yoga Magazine, Huffington Post, MindBodyGreen and other publications.

Anja is the founder of yogaembodied, a Registered  Senior Yoga Teacher (SYT) with The Yoga Professionals UK (their highest accreditation), E-RYT 500® and RPYT (Pregnancy) with Yoga Alliance US, she has a BSc and PGDip in Ayurveda and is trained as a Doula.

Even if I arrive at a class feeling drained, I always leave feeling both energized and relaxed at the same time, looking forward to the next one!— Helen
