Anita Goa

Anita grew up in Norway but spent 20 years in New York as a Yoga and Fitness Instructor. Her foundation as a yoga teacher comes from Ashtanga Yoga and was trained and certified by Beryl Bender Birch.
Anita’s creative spirit lead her to Vinyasa yoga and fuse yoga with her fitness background. In 2004 she published a book through McGraw-Hill; ‘Your Best Body Ever’ using yoga as the foundation for the gym. In 2007 after the birth of her son, and to get back in shape Anita developed ‘Fitness Vinyasa’ a signature fusion yoga workout that integrates yoga and fitness as a home practice and to save time. She also over the years developed a love for the Moon and started to design her yoga practices around the moon phases. Presently she is writing a Moon Phase Yoga Wellness Book.
Anita started her YouTube channel ‘Anita Goa TV’ in 2010 to extend her love of yoga, fitness and life philosophy to serve people all over the world. Out of that grew a following of Goa Flow-ers and her signature yoga style ‘Goa Flow.’ In 2014 Anita and her family; (husband Sanjay and son, Lars) left NY for London. She is very grateful for this opportunity to connect back to her European roots and share her passion for living life to its fullest potential; on and off the yoga mat.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Saturday Beginners 6 Week Yoga Course (Pre-Booking Required) £90 Book Now

    Yoga makes you feel better! But what exactly is yoga? And why is it so beneficial to body and mind? If you are keen to find out, join a small (maximum 10) group of fellow enquirers on this 6 week course.

    This course is a great way to begin, or to refresh, your practice: it is open to people of all ages (from 18 upwards), shapes, and sizes, and there is no need to bring anything, apart from an open mind and sense of humour.

    Kirtan: The Yogic Practice of Heart-Centred Singing (£12 earlybird, £16 full price)Book Now

    Join us to share in an evening of Kirtan. Singing the profoundly healing sounds of sanskrit mantra effortlessly drops our awareness out of our busy minds and into our hearts. Kirtan is from the path of Bhakti Yoga (pure love and compassion) and responds to where you are it and what you need in that moment, whether that is to bring you to a space of calm or elation. It can be deeply moving and incredibly joyful.

    Each month Sivani Mata will be joined by The Shakti Soul Family, a collective of musicians passionate about bhakti: Michelle Crozier (drum and divine harmonies), Mark Fisher (guitar), Michael McCaffrey (bells and shakers), Jezney Hollis (mandolin) and occasionally others. The family supports the Kirtan with heartfelt warmth and rootsy rhythms as a sound foundation for everyone present to be part of the band. Together, all our voices and hearts co-create the magic of the Kirtan.


    The evening will end with the sharing of some home-made prasadam, a sweet treat that has imbued the blessings of our practice together (the treat is always gluten, dairy and refined sugar free).


    Advance booking is recommended as this is a popular event. Please arrive by 6.30pm for a 7pm start.



    **** If booking for more than one person, please call 020 7704 0919 rather than booking via the website, otherwise the second person will not appear on the roster. ****

    Iyengar Yoga Level 1Book Now

Iyengar, is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga as expounded by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, emphasising the development of strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, as well as concentration (dharana) and meditation (dhyana). Iyengar Yoga focuses on the structural alignment of the physical body (often with the use of props such as blocks and straps) through the development of asanas. It aims to unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well being. Iyengar Yoga is considered a powerful tool to relieve the stresses of modern-day life which in turn can help promote total physical and spiritual well being.

    Scaravelli Inspired Yoga - All LevelsBook Now

    Inspired by Vanda Scaravelli, who practised with Iyengar for many years, these classes are a gentle, yet demanding, form of hatha yoga. Working with the breath, the pull of gravity on the body, and the resulting unravelling and release of the spine, this approach can be very helpful for those working with chronic, but not acute, spinal or postural issues. Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.

    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby

    Baby Massage classes with Alice are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga Nidra Book Now

    A softer and more meditative class, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.Yoga nidra translates as 'yogic sleep'. However, rather than actually sleeping, in yoga nidra you will lie down and be guided by the teacher into a state of profound physical and mental relaxation, somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. As well as allowing our bodies and minds some much needed rest, this also allows the sub-conscious mind to be at its most receptive, so that the practice can help to sow seeds of positive intention as well as help let go of negative habits. Yoga nidra has also been shown to help relieve stress, tension and anxiety, and has become a valuable therapeutic tool in many contexts. Classes described as 'with Yoga Nidra' will generally include at least 20 minutes of yoga nidra practice, usually at the end of the class. No prior experience of yoga nidra is needed in order to attend these classes.

    Baby MassageBook Now

    For babies from 6 weeks to sitting. These classes have been developed and tailored by Peter Walker, leading author and baby massage specialist, to help you learn how to give your baby the best start in life.

    In some Asian and African cultures babies have been massaged everyday from birth for centuries. Baby massage is recognised in the West today to give babies a great start in life.

    Developmental Baby massage works with the muscles and joints to achieve all the benefits of orthodox massage while helping the baby to fulfil her structural and physiological potential at each stage of development from birth to standing.

    Benefits include:

    • All benefits of communication through touch
    • Supports the development of a wide range of movement from birth to standing
    • Encourages growth and development by stimulating the appetite and aiding digestion
    • Improves and maintains muscle strength and flexibility
    • Can help to relieve minor discomfort like wind, colic, blocked nose
    • Builds foundation for good posture
    • Induces a sense of well being and relaxation for mother and baby
    • Playful and enjoyable time to bond with your baby

    Baby Massage classes with Alice are small with personal attention to each baby (maximum 15 babies in a class). Alice uses a doll to demonstrate baby massage techniques, which parents and carers then practise on their babies. The class starts with a warm up followed by a full body massage. Lying on their backs the babies have their feet massaged first, then the massage moves up to the legs, belly chest and arms. Babies have plenty of time on their bellies as well as a chance to sit, squat and stand supported. At the end of each session mums, dads or carers have the opportunity to have an informal discussion with tea and biscuits, while the babies either sleep, feed or just chill out. Soft baby gymnastics can also be demonstrated for babies that are on the move.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.

Classes vary from week to week, and are typically alignment based and subtle, giving us time to examine the postures, and our approach to them, in depth. Great emphasis is placed on recognising that each person is an individual, and adapting the yoga to reflect that. Working this way provides a welcome counterpoint to those working with a more dynamic practice, and is a nourishing and sustaining practice in its own right. Suitable for all levels of experience.

    Gentle Yoga with Yoga NidraBook Now

    A softer and more meditative practice, dedicated to remedial and gentle yoga practice. Suitable for students of any age and experience, who wish to practise gently and relax deeply. Also ideal for beginners and for those recovering from illness or injury.

    Yoga Nidra translates as Yogic Sleep. It is state of physical and mental relaxation, between wakefulness and deep sleep and the objective is to cultivate that state, without falling asleep. It is used as a relaxation practice, also a form of meditation, treatment for stress and anxiety and purification of the negative habits of mind. It is generally practised lying in savasana, but can be done sitting, or semi-reclining. This can help one remain conscious and aware if there is a tendency to fall asleep.

    This form of yoga nidra was devised by Swami Satyananda from an ancient tantric practice and includes eight verbally guided stages. The eight stages are: Internalisation, Sankalpa (intention), Rotation of Consciousness, Breath Awareness, Manifestation of Opposites, Creative Visualization, Sankalpa repeated and Externalisation.

    Yin Yoga All LevelsBook Now

    Yin Yoga is a practice where postures are held for 3 minutes or more. This length of time is used to open into the thicker layers of connective tissues around the joints that a moving, dynamic practice may not as effectively access.

    During this time of stillness, the physical, energetic, emotional and mental states of being are refined and aligned through heightened inner awareness. When this inner awareness is allowed to grow in stillness, knowledge is gained in maintaining a quiet and conscious state at all times; whether the external environment is one of calm or chaos.

    Yin Yoga is a perfect compliment to a dynamic (Yang) style practice and an extremely subtle and profound practice on its own.

    Yin yoga: an opportunity to soften as through holding postures for sustained periods of time, we examine limits and explore potentials. The focus is on feeling as through practice we develop attentiveness and refine awareness. The practice is available to all wishing to slow down and soften.
