Welcome to a World of Wellbeing
Welcome - how can I help?
I'm Caroline Whitmore, founder of Anahata Yoga, thank you for visiting my website.
Whether you're looking for a live class or want to practice on demand, you'll find something for everyone. [on demand class recordings coming soon!]
Need to move, stretch and strengthen? I have hatha (general) yoga classes for a range of levels and abilities.
Want to relax and renew whilst stretching and reflecting deeply? Try a delicious Yin Yoga class.
Or if you fancy trying something completely different ... try Aerial yoga, for fun, fitness and flexibility.
More details of all in-person classes and term dates are on the classes page. You'll also find pages with video classes on demand [coming soon!], online courses and in-person workshops too.
Scroll down this page for more about yoga and what it can offer you.
I'm a Senior Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals who's been teaching since 2007, and have practiced yoga most of my life. I aim to use the magic of this ancient art to support people through the seasons of their lives, giving them the tools to be as healthy and happy as possible.
Yoga from the Heart
Anahata is the name for the heart chakra, the energy centre where love, compassion and peace reside in the body, ready to radiate out to the world.
Life is full of contrasts. Light and dark, outer and inner, yin and yang. For a balanced existence we need to process a blend of contrasting energies. Each individual can find their perfect blend in the practice of Yoga.
Balance and peace
The style of yoga most often practised in the west is ‘Hatha Yoga’. In Sanskrit, the ancient language of yoga, Ha means sun and Tha means moon. The Sun is our active, outward energy, the Moon our inner, reflective nature. If we balance these energies, and practise our yoga from the heart, with sincerity, we can bring love, compassion and peace to our everyday lives.
Strength, Flexibility, Calm, Relaxation
I aim to combine these elements with a blend of yoga practices; asana (postures) from different yoga styles, with pranayama (breath work), mantra (chant), meditation and relaxation techniques. The practice is given from the heart to enable you to experience its qualities of joy, contentment and peace. Practicing yoga helps you to achieve the perfect balance: a healthy body, a calm mind and a peaceful soul.

I’ve learnt about so many things and changed myself in so many ways since joining Anahata Yoga! It is just as good on line as it is in real life too.... thank you Caroline.

From aerial yoga to brilliant workshops, what's not to love about Anahata Yoga and Caroline!
Without the help of Caroline and her online classes I am not sure whether I could have maintained my sanity during lockdown! After sessions, the outlook on life is very healthy and positive.

I have been practicing with Caroline for a number of years and love the unique nature of every practice. Would highly recommend to those who are looking for a class that is vibrant and interesting.
