Anthea is a BWY teacher and Director of Academic Faculty for the Institute of Yoga Sports Science® (YSS).
She combines her yoga skills with sports/remedial massage and myofascial release therapy, specialising in postural anatomy and structural fitness. Anthea's students and clients come from all walks of life and sport, and she has a strong belief in the potential for effective performance of the mind and body, injury prevention and lifestyle management within the traditions of yoga.

With Anatomy Applied she is developing CPD events to help yoga teachers feel confident in translating traditional and more recently discovered anatomical principles into their work with the individuality of each and every body.
