Reflexology works on the principle that the whole body, from head to toe, is connected. This connection is represented by ten zones, which run front to back and head to toe throughout the body, and are most easily accessible via the feet. As reflexologists, we can detect imbalances in the body by working on the feet and then tackle problem areas accordingly to help correct them. It is not a cure, more a helping hand for the body's self-healing process.
The fantastic thing is that reflexology can benefit almost everyone. An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonising the body and reducing stress levels. Treatment can be given to assist with a wide range of disorders, including headaches, migraines, sinus congestion, stiffness in the neck and back, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, or reflexology can be thought of simply as an hour of 'me' time in your busy day, allowing you time to switch off and enjoy the sense of relaxation and well-being.

I graduated Bournemouth University in 2014 and fell in love with Yoga later the same year when I was ignited to my first Ashtanga practice by my incredible teacher Tina Brown.
At the time, the Friday night practice was perfect for what I needed after a long week working in an admin role at an Investment Bank. It challenged me both physically and mentally. The truth is, after 3 and a half years of working those long hours, I realised that banking was not for me.
"And then I realized, that to be more alive, I had to be, less afraid. And so, I did it. I lost my fear, and gained my whole life." (Cleo Wade)
I quit my job, and I jumped.
I had already gained so much from my yoga practice and I wanted to share that with other people. I also wanted to go on a learning journey to discover new things, and learn about people, life and cultures. So I set off to South and Central America on a journey of self-discovery, not really knowing what I was looking for or what I would find.
During my travels, I completed my 200 Hour YTT with School Yoga Institute in Guatemala.
The. Most. Incredible. Experience. Of. My. Life. To. Date…
Yoga had mainly been a physical practice for me, however during my 3 weeks intensive training; my eyes were opened to the world of Yoga as a medicine, meditation, philosophy and lifestyle. I loved learning about Spirituality and the history and philosophy of Yoga, it became so much more than a physical practice, and I wish to share all of this, along with the uplifting feeling of revitalisation after class with my students. I believe that if everybody in the world practiced Yoga then the world would be a better place. I am so happy to be planting the seeds for growing this philosophy in the UK.

I first went to see Tania when I was having the most awful Endometriosis symptoms, heavy periods and pain. After my initial consultation, within hours I felt better. With the clean eating advice, natural remedies and healing received from Tania, I found that my symptoms have all but disappeared and a year on, I am still pain and symptom free.
My second consultation with Tania was in March '18, for high blood pressure. I was on prescribed medication from my GP but the side effects of them made me very ill so, I refused to take any more. Tania gave me just one session of Angel healing and some natural remedy to continue to use at home.
In April '18, I went back to my GP for a Blood Pressure check and it is now back to normal. I no longer have to take the prescribed medication that the GP once told me, I'd be on for the rest of my life.
I feel like I have got my life back and I am so grateful that Tania was able to heal me.
I had been trying to fall pregnant for the past 2 years with no success. After going to see Tania and her giving me advice and herbal sprays i fell pregnant 2 months later. As I had suffered previous miscarriages she gave me a ‘holding’ spray to use throughout my pregnancy. I am now 13 weeks pregnant and all thanks to her. I highly recommend seeing her if you are having any fertility issues.

My daughter had explosive nappies from birth, she was bottle fed. Her nappies were no better once she had been weaned but I was able to establish a pattern from the food she ate. She appeared to have a dairy and gluten intolerance. I went to the GP and voiced my concerns. The GP sent us to the hospital for several blood tests including one for coeliac disease. We returned to the GP to be advised that the tests had come back clear but that the GP has forgotten to order the dairy intolerance test. Not wishing to put my daughter through any more tests, I had a chat with Tania who agreed to see and assess her. My daughter was very comfortable with Tania and sat quietly and calmly while Tania worked. Tania confirmed that she had an obstruction in her digestive system which may be causing the food intolerances and made up a spray which I was to administer three times a day. I did this for about two weeks and my daughter’s nappies became normal and healthy no matter what food she ate. Tania advised that I should continue with the spray once a day once everything has settled down but if ever my daughter had a recurrence then to go back to three times a day for a couple of weeks. The spray is a miracle cure! My daughter calls it her tummy medicine and insists on having a spray every night before bed. She has been successfully potty trained without incident and is able to eat everything especially macaroni cheese! We didn’t have to change our diet to exclude dairy and we didn’t have to go to the hospital for more tests. Perfect result!
Searching to find the Truth of herself, Her heart was was deeply called to a Master and she found her way to the Osho commune in Pune, India where she explored meditation, Tantra and Self Awareness groups for more than 10 years. As well as working with people for several years in the healing fields including various forms of bodywork, assisting others through trauma in a meditative way.
In 1994, she entered a two and half year period of silence in a Zen style retreat in Japan (otherwise known as a Japanese prison). It was during this retreat where True Freedom was realized.
In the face of extremely limiting conditions...
She realized herSelf As THAT which has Always been Free, Full and Enough unto ItSelf!
The Peace that is the ground of all experience.
The Love that does not need an experience of Love. The happiness that is our True Nature without needing an experience of happiness… revealed ItSelf to ItSelf.
Coming back into ‘the world’ in 1997, there followed a period of confusion as personality and drama began to reappear causing the search to go on...
In 2000 she then found her way to Intensive Satsang with Dolano in Pune, where the confusion was cleared and no way to turn back from the clear recognition of ‘Who Am I’.
This naturally started the unfolding of the integration process where all personality issues come home in Truth. Where bound up life energy, held by beliefs and illusions, reappear to be met in the light, where transformation happens.
This is an ongoing moment to moment process that never stops evolving and is always fresh and New.
Ananta's life and work is Now dedicated to the Awakening of Human Consciousness, and through her own Self-Realization, her main area of focus is Now facilitating, the simple direct recognition of the realization of our True Nature, through all that appears to play in all levels and back to the ordinariness of Life itself.
Since 2004, meetings and retreats are happening around the world in the form of Satsang or ‘Meetings in Truth’ a Deepening in Self Realization, where the illusion of separation is blown, and the True meeting of same Self is left as a sharing of friends.
Ananta’s way of sharing includes Direct Self Inquiry, similar to the investigation of ‘Who Am I’ passed down from Ramana Maharshi. Yet it has now taken on a definite ‘Ananta’ flavour… after many years of developing in her own unique way, she finds a most easy and simple way of bringing about the Direct Experience of our True Nature and the ever deepening embodying of this realisation so uniquely to every Being who comes to her.
Living from this point of clear seeing and deepest knowing, there is the invitation to meet all ‘unfinished business’ in Truth. This carries over into a unique expression of Divine/Humanness.

Fifteen years ago I signed up for my first ‘sweaty’ Ashtanga class in Covent Garden. Our teacher was also a talented dancer in the musical ‘Cats’ and he was a wonderful character. I found him inspiring and soon reaped the rewards of including asana practices in my life.
Nowadays, although I still enjoy Ashtanga I am inspired by Vinyasa Flow, which I am qualified to teach. I also love attending a variety of weekly asana classes, to keep my own practice fresh and exciting – whether it is a beginner, or advanced class. It never ceases to amaze me how each teacher offers their own unique teaching style!
Each class I teach uses dynamic and static postures to gently stretch and strengthen the body, and expand the mind. I encourage my students to trust in their bodies and break down more demanding asanas, using their breath as a guide. If the breath feels uncomfortable, we can pull back from a posture.
I like to create a light atmosphere in class so that all students feel welcome, whatever their experience level. Modifications are available so that everyone can explore the postures.
At the end of class we enjoy a well-deserved relaxation allowing students to soak up the benefits of their practice. Our intention is to leave our practice feeling positive about ourselves, fully restored with increased vitality and energy.
My passion for Yoga started over 25 years ago when I attended classes at the renowned Sivananda Yoga centre in London. The physical demands and spiritual calm and stillness of the practice brought balance to my busy life as a fashion buyer. Years later I discovered Vinyasa Flow Yoga, bringing together my other great loves of dance, movement and music. This is the style of Yoga that I now teach and practice. My classes are a fluid combination of rhythmic sequences, classic yoga postures and moments of stillness and reflection.
I qualified as a homeopath at the College of Homeopathy in 1988, and, having passed all the competence procedures, became a member of the College in 1989 (M.C.H.). In the following year, I was accepted onto the Register of the Society of Homeopaths (R.S.Hom). Since then, I have built up busy practices in Reigate and Sutton in Surrey, and Lee in South-East London with a considerable amount of experience in all health concerns, and have been employed to teach abroad for Homeopathic Charities in Belgrade and Cairo. I have a Diploma in Natural Nutrition (DNN) from the College of Natural Nutrition, and a certificate in Advanced Counselling skills from New Paradigm Training. These other professional skills greatly complement my homeopathy practice. Currently, as well as practising homeopathy full-time, I teach and supervise students of the South Downs School of Homeopathy (SDSH) in Chichester."
