‘ Yogi Ashokananda believes people are still over thinking both on the mat and in their lives...... more de programming is required. yoga should be treated simply and lightly.’
Anthea Aireton-Downer - Anthea is the Karma Centre studio owner and a Senior Yoga Teacher. In addition to qualifying with the British Wheel of Yoga, she has studied Ashtanga with David Swenson, Vinyasa Flow with Shiva Rea and Iyengar based Yoga Therapy with Doug Keller. Since 2012 she has studied extensively with Yogi Ashokananda in India and the UK. Yogi Ashokananda’s has deepened my understanding of the asana and helped me to understand the importance of sequencing and its effect on calming the nervous system, stimulating the digestive system and balancing the endocrine systems.
Anthea started teaching public classes in 1990 and has been based in Salisbury since 2010. She runs Yoga Retreats and Teacher Training Foundation Courses on behalf of the Yogi Ashokananda School, Academy of Yoga & Meditation.
Anthea teaches a variety of classes; Himalayan Hatha Yoga, Prana Kriya Yoga, Meditation / Mindfulness and Pranayama. You can expect to be challenged, whether you are a beginner, or more accomplished yoga practioner. Se enjoys teaching flowing sequences, which is evident in her teaching, as well as holding postures to strength and refine. Her style has been influenced by her love of traditional Prana Kriya which focuses on the breath and Pranayama (breathing techniques).
Anthea is passionate about the therapeutic aspect of yoga. She teaches the Wellbeing Group for Salisbury District Hospital and specialises in Restorative Yoga, Chair Yoga & Meditation.
