Anita

Yoga & Pilates Instructor,
Owner, lululemon Ambassador

Anita has enjoyed a passion for yoga & Pilates for the past 20 years, finding in this practice the grounding necessary to balance a busy career in London and more recently, work and family life in Sydney. Yoga & Pilates have provided her with not only the opportunity to improve her flexibility, strength and manage her scoliosis but to deal with the stress and pressure of daily life. As a result, several years ago she decided to take this passion further and completed her Yoga teacher training, then more recently her Pilates qualification, with a view to opening the kind of studio she had always been seeking. So she created that place. It is somewhere for people to share a wonderful, supportive class with experienced and uplifting instructors. A place that changes lives. A place called Flex Body.
