“The most wonderful hour you will ever spend in the company of this wonderful lady. Her gentle, holistic approach to yoga is refreshing. The most important person in Anna’s class is you and your body. No stress in getting the perfect pose; it’s all about what is perfect for you right now. Blended with mindfulness makes it most enjoyable. I love it and am so looking forward to the remainder of the programme. ”

"As a runner and a Cross-fitter I have been attending yoga classes for the last two years. I found Anna King’s yoga classes excellent. I was extremely tight with painful lower back and hamstrings. By attending yoga on a regular basis all that has all changed. Anna explains all the movements really well . You also get a good workout. With Anna’s help my Core is stronger I am much more flexible and injury free.
Thanks Anna". - John Donnellan, Businessman, Galway.

“Anna’s class has had a fantastic effect on my physical, mental and emotional well-being. From where I started to where I am now, is thanks to Anna. Not only does she teach you the yoga moves, she also explains why we do each move, how to fully relax & de-stress. I would totally recommend Anna as a yoga teacher, as well as being a truly lovely lady. ”
