Catherine Annis

Catherine is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga. Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing since the 1970s. In 2017 she developed Intelligent Yoga Teacher Training with Gary Carter and Peter Blackaby, one of the few training courses inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli. Her 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. She holds an MA in ballet studies and is a qualified Thai massage practitioner, and this interest in the body informs and inspires her teaching. For more information visit: and
