Catherine Annis

Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing for over 40 years. Having studied various styles of yoga including Sivananda, Iyengar, Astanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli. Catherine’s daily yoga practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal and release the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine.

      Catherine belongs to an elite group of London yoga teachers who are at the top of their practice. Her understanding of the body and the language she uses to describe movements and poses is vivid and sophisticated. Her Scaravelli yoga classes are invigorating, challenging but also deeply relaxing. She has inspired my work as a Pilates teacher and introduced me to a broader understanding of how to achieve release and balance in the body.

      I have known Catherine since 2001. During this time she has been my student, yoga colleague and friend. It has been a pleasure to act as her mentor. I have been impressed by her gentle enthusiasm and the intelligent way in which she has immersed herself in all aspects of yoga. She continues to add her own flavour that arises from her dedicated practice. Her teaching reflects her understanding of this broad and valuable subject.

      Catherine is a wonderful yoga teacher based in London. She is firm but compassionate, and I feel completely safe with her. Her Scaravelli classes have changed the relationship I have to my body – I’m more confident physically, and I’ve learned to trust my own experience through her teaching. This is seriously deep and wise yoga!

      I liked your teaching style very much, using visualization and feeling your body dissolve into the mat, holding poses for a long time but in a gentle way that explores how the body works together. And thank you for your compliment about how we practiced yoga - very encouraging. We do hope to come to another retreat in the future, we both thought it was the perfect way to spend a weekend.

      Thanks again for a beautiful lesson in yoga, you really have a refined understanding of asana. It is always a most nurturing and supportive, yet nonetheless challenging experience.
