Anna Ravenscroft-Ward

Anna was a primary school teacher for 20 years, working with children in all year groups and specialising in the early years.  She completed her 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training over two years with The Devon School of Yoga and teaches a range of classes in Exmouth working with toddlers, school children and adults right up to aged 82.

Anna teaches mindful yoga, which encourages participants to be fully aware of their mind, body and breath whilst they move and stretch. This helps to bring about an awareness of the body and the emotions felt within it as well as promoting strength and flexibility. It also gives students the skills to deal with stress and anxiety within their daily lives.

Anna has her own daily mindfulness meditation practice and will complete her Mindfulness Teacher Training in November 2019.

She has three daughters and has lived in Exmouth for 6 years during which time she has worked at a local primary school, worked with a local child minder and trained as a Bosom Buddy breastfeeding support worker.
