Starting in Aug-Sep 2019, Anna Beata Yoga will be running mixed level vinyasa yoga classes geared specifically towards climbers. Yoga is a brilliant complement to climbing, as it focuses on strength, flexibility and mindfulness as well as promoting good joint, bone and muscle health – all things that climbers need to stay healthy, strong and to keep climbing.

Vinyasa is a creative, flowing, fun style of yoga that focuses on synchronising breath and movement. Read Movement Medicine – Anna explores the ways in which climbers can benefit from yoga.

A bit about Anna
Like many, I started practising yoga to complement other physical activities and I have dipped in and out of yoga practice since I was a teenager. However the ball really dropped when I first encountered strong Vinyasa flow classes and I was hooked by the journey, physically and mentally, those classes would take me on. Yoga became a fundamental and integral part of my life and has remained so - there’s no area of my life or self that yoga hasn’t shed some light on and as a life-long student it’s a path I continue to follow with delight and excitement, a privilege to be able to delve deeper into the practice and myself. My teachers include: Laura Rice (Studio 70), Jenny Clark, Alice Grey (the Kali Collective) and the brilliant Mudra Yoga – Helen Gillespie and Demelza Feltham with whom I did my 200-hour YTT. I’m also work in the arts as a programmer, producer and organiser – supporting artists to develop their practice and new ideas and in my spare time like to put on gigs, events and parties in various DIY and community contexts in Glasgow. I love to weave various parts of yoga practice into my approaches to all of this. I teach vinyasa flow with an emphasis on curiosity, fun and encouraging a deeper connection to self through mindfulness and meditation.
Anna’s mission statement
I have experienced some of the most profound shifts and revelations of my life on the mat and my goal as a teacher is to hold that same space for transformation, power and joy for folks that attend my classes. I believe that yoga is a holistic technology for landing us deeply in the core of ourselves - allowing us to access the strength of our body-wisdom, to find spaciousness and freedom through breath, and to encounter and dismantle the boundaries we might have set up for ourselves – be those physical, mental or emotional. I think there’s nothing more beautiful than finding communion in a roomful of people moving their bodies with purpose and integrity, uniting their breath and being together as they push at their edges - physically, energetically, mentally -and have fun in the process.
