Join Catherine Annis at one of her weekly yoga classes in London at triyoga or at The Life Centre
Catherine is a wonderful yoga teacher based in London. She is firm but compassionate, and I feel completely safe with her.
Her Scaravelli yoga 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!

Traditionally, yoga was taught individually, to ensure that each student gained complete understanding and mastery before moving to the next stage. This individual approach is suitable for students at all levels of experience, from beginners to more experienced practitioners.
Private one to one Scaravelli yoga with Catherine Annis is an ideal way to explore your own personal yoga practice and to develop your understanding. Catherine teaches at her London studio, in North Kensington, W10. Catherine also offers private yoga lessons in the comfort of your own home in the following London areas: Notting Hill; Kensington; Chelsea; Holland Park and Primrose Hill.
Working closely on a one-to-one basis helps to clarify and deepen your yoga practice, and may be more appropriate if you are beginning yoga, don’t like working in a class situation, or have specific needs – such as rehabilitation of an injury. If you have up to two friends who would like to join you, that’s fine too, as long as you have adequate space.
During your private tuition, you can choose to focus on whichever aspect of yoga you choose. Whether you’re looking to learn the basics to give you confidence to join a class, or to develop strength and ease in more challenging positions, Catherine can tailor your session to help you really enjoy yoga and relax into it.
1. New to yoga
New students often feel overwhelmed in a group class, and can benefit immensely from receiving an instructor’s complete attention. Working one to one will help you develop a clear understanding of the yoga poses and breathing techniques, rather than getting lost when the speed of a group class is too much.
2. Increase strength, and flexibility – safely
In a one-to-one Scaravelli yoga class, Catherine will select poses which are appropriate to your needs and experience, so that you develop a safe, intelligent and nourishing practice. The private tuition helps curb our natural tendency to push towards reaching the full expression of a pose, when this may not yet be appropriate, and may put you at risk of injury, or discomfort. Working 1:1, Catherine will be right beside you, helping you to balance your ambitions with your experience and abilities, offering assistance and gentle guidance as your skills develop.
3. Busy schedules
One to one Scaravelli yoga classes conveniently fit your schedule. Many people are just too busy to get in the car or on public transport and then practice yoga for an hour (or more) at the studio, then travel back home again … that leaves you anything but relaxed. Catherine can come to your home at a time that is convenient for you and design a class specifically for you.
4. Your needs come first
Private yoga classes are customised to fit your specific needs, focusing on therapeutic benefits for injuries, restorative benefits for stress or emotional situations, and helping you work towards specific goals.
Catherine also teaches Yoga Nidra on a 1:1 basis – this can be very helpful if you are having problems sleeping or relaxing and is extremely restorative at times of emotional or psychological stress.
Yoga nidra means “yogic sleep”. It is a state of conscious deep sleep. In meditation, you remain in the waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on. However, in yoga nidra, you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state, and move into deep sleep, whilst remaining awake and conscious. Yoga nidra brings you to a supreme state of relaxation, which can be very helpful at times of intense stress, or when you are having difficulties sleeping.
During this deep state of relaxation, blood pressure is normalised, the immune system is strengthened and the brain relaxes and cooperates better. All the organs and senses of the body are rested in a way that sleep seldom provides. Thus the senses are sharpened and you wake feeling refreshed and invigorated. The more familiar you become with yoga nidra, the easier it is to glide into the relaxed state. And as you become more practiced at the techniques, you will be able to return to this state instantly – in the middle of the activities of your day, or at night, when you may wish to move deeper, into sleep itself.
Yoga nidra is practiced on the floor, in a warm, comfortable and safe environment, free from distractions. Each session takes approximately 1 hour, as Catherine talks you gently through a series of relaxation techniques that help bring you into the state of yoga nidra. At the end of the session, you will wake refreshed and revitalised, ready to face the rest of your day.
Stress in the workplace is the main reason for employees taking time away from the office, costing companies millions each year.
Cultivating a good team environment and investing in the wellbeing of your employees shows that you care about your staff. Allowing your staff to feel part of the team makes them more efficient and determined to well for your company.
