Anika has been teaching Viniyoga for over thirteen years since training through the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) and the Association of Yoga Studies (AYS). She began practising yoga in 1998 and now runs yoga retreats in various locations around Europe in addition to training yoga teachers in Brighton.
The practice of yoga and in particular Viniyoga sparked Anika's interest in the philosophy of yoga, and she includes pranayama, relaxation and visualisation, as well as meditative practices to her teaching which is suitable for all levels.
Anika specialises in Viniyoga which is a form of hatha yoga. It works on linking breath and movement and the directing of the mind towards the breath throughout the yoga practice. Viniyoga is where yoga therapy originated from, allowing the work that we do on the mat to reflect our individual needs, rather than applying the same practice to everyone.
This can be helpful for physical issues like back problems, but also help with stress and insomnia. Group classes are a great way to start exploring the benefits of Viniyoga. In the long term the aim might also be to start practicing at home and to make yoga part of your daily routine.
Anika also works as a Yoga Therapist, enabling her to apply appropriate practices to the individual. She offers 1-1 sessions in line with the tradition of yoga being taught individually. For anyone who would like to develop a personalised yoga routine, Anika can create an individually tailored practice that can be discussed in a free initial consultation.
Anika’s qualifications include:
500 hrs BWY yoga teaching diploma
500 hrs AYS yoga therapy diploma
BWY TPOT qualified to assess student teachers
Member of the Register of Exercise Professionals Level 3
Thai Yoga Massage Practioner
Anika offers Viniyoga Introductory weekend workshops (please enquire for details)

Having really enjoyed the flowing nature of Anika’s Viniyoga classes, I jumped at the chance to join an AMAZING yoga holiday in France where she co-taught. Anika now visits me at home for 1:1 ‘yoga therapy’ sessions. I have a few chronic injuries and imbalances that can restrict me in normal classes. Anika interprets my Physio's recommendations and builds them into a meaningful practice just for me! (My Physio in turn has been blown away by Anika’s ability to incorporate the two disciplines and is recommending her widely.) Anika is an intuitive, dedicated and very skilled teacher, as well as being a lovely, caring person with a great sense of humour! Jo G, Brighton
I strongly recomend Anika, she is a brilliant teacher and makes you feel very welcome in her classes. Anika is very patient and is a good teacher for every level. Keri, Brighton
I've been doing Anika's classes on and off for about 7 years now. She's a wonderful teacher, really warm and engaging and empathetic and makes you feel incredibly welcome in her class, whatever level you're at. I love the style of yoga she practices, you always feel like you've worked really hard but without it being competitive or damaging, and she emphasises your breathing and the mindfulness side of things in a way that's really comfortable and makes you feel centred rather than lectured at. She's very conscious about her students' bodies and issues and tailors stuff to suit you. I've recently started doing one on one sessions with her, which are fantastic. She's designed me a brilliant practice to do at home that's been really good for my back problems and is really helpful for dealing with my stress levels. Can't recommend her enough.
