Transform your health, energy levels, peace of mind and quality of life with personal yoga sessions to suit to your constitution and needs. Balanced exercise and meditation will helps you to heal and to control mood swings naturally. In a one to one yoga lesson we develop
a personal practice plan based on questionnaires on your constitution, physical and mental health and reasons for practicing yoga.
The plan can involve postures, breathing, relaxation, concentration,
meditation, study, positive actions, spiritual connection and goals.

Back care, Energy Practices, Weight loss, pregnancy and post natal yoga are my specialities, but clients have also found private lessons helpful for many other issues.
Private lessons can involve Reiki healing, a gentle and relaxing
hands on healing method to which I have trained to 2nd degree level.
Several weekly sessions are recommended to establish a home practice. Relaxation home practice can be augmented with the Relax with Anna Semlyen CD
As well as individuals, companies employ me to come to their workplace. Clients have included Corus Rail, CPP, DEFRA, The English Language Centre and the Environment Agency. Please ring or email Anna to discuss your requirements.
Private lessons and yoga plans are £40 per hour at my home, 24 Grange St, off Fulford Road
