Anja first encountered yoga in her native Denmark in the late 1990s and from then on continued to practise and study various styles of yoga. Living in London she has studied and trained in the capital and her interest has brought her to India and America for further studies.
Through yoga she discovered Ayurveda – translated as the Science of Life – and is a sister science to Yoga. Ayurveda is a practical application of keeping our body and our mind healthy through lifestyle, diet and if necessary herbs and body treatments.
She achieved her BSc and Post Graduate Diploma in Ayurveda from Middlesex University. She has completed the ayurvedic massage programme which is part of the degree as well as internships in Ayurvedic hospitals in India.
Anja teaches yoga to people from all walks of life, in classes, workshops and one-to-ones. She has also qualified as a pregnancy yoga teacher, gives ayurvedic advice and is a qualified massage therapist and aromatherapist.
