Scaravelli Inspired Yoga
Catherine Annis,
influenced by the teaching of Vanda Scaravelli

Catherine Annis teaches yoga inspired by the pioneering approach of Vanda Scaravelli at London’s top yoga studios as well as offering online zoom yoga classes & workshops. This is a gentle yet demanding form of Hatha yoga, which concentrates on developing core strength through releasing tension and creating length in the spine. The practice is subtle yet strong, and works with the flow of the breath and the pull of gravity to allow the spine to unfold like a wave, allowing the uninhibited opening and energising of the whole body.

Scaravelli inspired yoga is a stress-free yoga that benefits everyone.  Classes are suitable for all ages and all levels (from beginners to those who have many years of experience).  Regardless of your level of fitness, you will discover a longer, stronger and more flexible spine, a calmer mind, and begin to enjoy increased energy and ease of movement.

When you are looking for something more than just a yoga class - our workshops, retreats or training courses could inspire you to discover something new, allowing you to take your yoga practice to the next level and beyond.

Intelligent Yoga Teacher Training (IYTT) is unique amongst teacher training courses.  We offer an incisive, thoughtful and intelligent approach to yoga teacher training, driven by the most current scientific developments in anatomy and movement research.

Delivered by an elite group of senior yoga teachers at the top of their field, IYTT offers a spacious, immersive modular structure which provides time and space for profound learning, integration and growth.  Each of the teaching team draws on decades of practical experience of yoga, including particularly the work of Vanda Scaravelli and somatic, embodied practices.

Described by some as radical and provocative, this approach to practice demands a fundamental shift in our practice and teaching.

Our IYTT team has over 200 years of combined yoga practice. With all this knowledge, wisdom and experience, you'll be in safe hands.

Alicia Moran

Pilates Foundation (Director - retired)

Catherine belongs to an elite group of London yoga teachers who are at the top of their practice. Her understanding of the body and the language she uses to describe movements and poses is vivid and sophisticated. Her Scaravelli yoga classes are invigorating, challenging but also deeply relaxing. She has inspired my work as a Pilates teacher and introduced me to a broader understanding of how to achieve release and balance in the body. 

John Stirk

Yoga Teacher and Osteopath

I have known Catherine since 2001. During this time she has been my student, yoga colleague and friend. It has been a pleasure to act as her mentor. I have been impressed by her gentle enthusiasm and the intelligent way in which she has immersed herself in all aspects of yoga. She continues to add her own flavour  that arises from her dedicated practice. Her teaching reflects her understanding of this broad and valuable subject.

Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Radio Broadcaster

Catherine is a wonderful yoga teacher based in London. She is firm but compassionate, and I feel completely safe with her. Her Scaravelli 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!

Mary Fellowes

Fashion Editor, Vogue

Catherine’s Scaravelli yoga classes in London are refreshingly down to earth, ‘non-smug’ yoga … Her teaching is intelligent, soulful, spiritual, intuitive, spontaneous, surprising and a total joy.  How she helped me cure a really painful back problem is another example of  how hugely generous in character and spirit she is, and always goes that extra step further to interact with her students on a deeper and more personal level than any other instructor I have worked with.

Jody Barber

Neurological Physiotherapist & Yoga Teacher

I deliberated for several years before finding a yoga teacher trainer who I hoped would resonate with my knowledge, skills and background as a neurological Physiotherapist.  Catherine Annis has by far exceeded my expectations not only does she have a wealth of experience as a yoga teacher, her anatomical and biomechanics and movement knowledge is extensive. Her professionalism and passion to teach, share and exchange knowledge and skills in yoga and movement has been so valuable in enabling me to develop as a yoga teacher but has also immensely enhanced my treatment approaches in my physiotherapy practice. The best training I have done in years!
