Scaravelli Inspired Yoga Testiimonials: We strongly believe that the best form of promotion is through word of mouth from those who have attended our yoga events, courses or classes. Here are a selection of things people have had to say.
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.
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.
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!

Working with you has helped me build core strength and gain control over my flexibility and use muscles I wasn’t even aware I had! I feel taller and more stable in myself after our week together, and I believe it will be the foundation of a developing yoga style I will adopt and continue to practice. You are the best yoga teacher I have ever found. Thank you.

Thanks so much for the week of yoga at Huzur Vadisi, it was such a good time and such an interesting crowd. I only wish I’d had another week. I’ll definitely join you again in yoga class at triyoga.

Catherine’s Scaravelli yoga teaching is inspired. We have all met those yoga teachers along the way who manage to let their light and wisdom shine so very brightly yet make it so personal and applicable to you. Catherine is one of these gifted teachers who have influenced my being, my body and the way I approach my practice and my teaching in subtle yet profound ways. I would go even further to say that having studied with her changed things fundamentally. One often hears: “Do yoga from the inside.” In Catherine’s classes I finally realised what this means. It’s priceless. I highly recommend studying with her in any way you can: privately, group classes, retreats, or all of the above. Namaste!
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!

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.
Entrepreneur & Business Woman
I’d never done yoga before being offered a Scaravelli yoga class with Catherine through my work. Catherine focused on our scrunched up office bodies and I quickly became hooked on gently and intensely stretching with her gentle yet firm and interactive approach. I have gained strength, flexibility and the ability to relax my body and mind all at the same time! I loved these classes so much that I’ve just come back from her Scaravelli yoga retreat in Kerela- one of the best trips I’ve ever been on, probably the best money you could spend on you and your body.
A big thank you to Catherine – what an incredible yoga teacher! I’ve woken this morning and the Scaravelli yoga retreat now seems like a colourful dream, the kind that stays with you long after you wake up. We were asked to move with subtlety, and at the same time constantly challenged to work hard. All of our sessions were fun, some felt wonderfully random, but by the end of the two weeks, I thought to myself, everything made sense as a perfect whole. I’ve taken with me many body memories, not least a new awareness of particular parts of my spine!
You are the best Scaravelli yoga teacher I have ever had, and I love your mixture of a very thoughtful and intelligent approach to yoga with a light touch and sense of humour. You also seem to be genuinely interested in your pupils – it’s not all about you.
Thank you for another fabulous and hard Scaravelli yoga class, I so enjoyed the introduction with the bony foot and walking around the room exploring different surfaces with our feet. I love the journey of discovery within our bodies which you’ve introduced through your classes, it’s amazing how it helps bring me down to earth and into the here and now, into joy and presence. Thank you, it’s such a gift.
Thank you so much for the Scaravelli yoga weekend! It was a wonderful few days which I found so nourishing, learning so much from you about finding spaces in the body was lovely and I left feeling free in mind and body.
Before I embarked on the triyoga teacher training, a fellow yoga teacher said to me ‘this will be the greatest gift you can give to yourself’ and she was absolutely right. Completing my yoga training at triyoga under the guidance of Catherine Annis was truly a life changing process. Her expertise, care and passion is exceptional and reflected in everything she did. Beyond her technical knowledge is a rare sincerity and ability to ‘hold the space’ as you grow from student to teacher – it’s so important to be supported in this way whilst you undergo an exceptional time of personal growth and learning. I feel incredibly grateful to have been supported in this way. The pace of the yoga course allowed time for integration and exploration, something else that I really valued. The training gave me access to a team of teachers who are completely dedicated to their craft in a beautiful setting, something that still inspires my practice and teaching today.
Your yoga teaching has really touched and changed me and I can't wait to see how it all flows into my practice and teaching. So much felt so normal to me after so much yoga in the past that just didn't seem right. Your teaching is gorgeous and so clear, compassionate, inspiring, yet no bull. I love it.
I send occasional newsletters which include updates on my forthcoming retreats, new courses and workshops, together with occasional meditations or inspiration to help you develop your practice.
