"Anyone can practice. Young man can practice. Old man can practice. Very old man can practice. Man who is sick, he can practice. Man who doesn't have strength can practice. Except lazy people; lazy people can't practice Ashtanga yoga"
-K Pattabhi Jois-

About Anna Makarova


Yoga has been my life for the last 12 years. In 2015 I accomplished a 200 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training course in London with Ryan Spielman, to begin teaching and do what I love. 
I started ballet at the age of five and continued professionally till I was 18, after which I obtained an undergraduate degree in International Business with finance and Russian and French languages at the European Business School, London. On completion of my degree, I worked in private banking for a few years before returning to school to gain a Master’s degree in International Political Economy in King's College, London. 
After completing my studies I felt the need to travel and explore the world and subsequently decided to volunteer in Zanzibar. It was on the beaches of Jambiani, witnessing the smiles on children’s faces as I taught them yoga every morning that I realised I wanted to spend my life introducing others to joys and benefits of Yoga.

About Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga
Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga are traditional Yoga practices that are built to progress in strength and flexibility. Some of the poses might seem difficult at first, but every posture can be modified for beginners. You will experience an inner transformation every time you practice. It involves synchronising one’s breathing with a progressive series of postures, producing an intense internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies the muscles and organs.
Results: improved circulation, a light and strong body and a calm mind.
