Ania Caplin

 Anna Caplin -  Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha and Pregnancy Yoga Teacher. 


Ania began her yoga journey  as a simple desire to use her practice as part of her physiotherapy to address ongoing scoliosis.  Shortly after fell in love with yoga, amazed by the movement of limbs and muscles, muscles she even didn't realised existed within her body, she became a true believer that yoga does cure: lengthening and strengthening, prevention from chronic back pain, growing mentally and emotionally in ways she have never expected. Literally she has grown 2.5cm!

Her passion for the flow of movements and benefits for the body and mind intrigued her and the regular classes weren't enough anymore. She started a teacher training programme to get deeper into the subject. After graduating Yoga Alliance Teacher Training she discovered that this was just a beginning. With this passion to learn she travelled across the mysterious India to study yoga in a different places. She  explored her  horizons in  Himalaya Iyengar Institute, Mysore, Varkala, Rishikesh and inspired by many teachers and students she met, created her own unique style of teaching.  

"I enjoy the physical challenge and the safe practice. I teach with passion and energy to encourge students to stay on the mat, to avoid contusion, build strength, awareness and an understanding of their bodies with correct breath, alignment and point of focus. In my regular classes students might expect to breathe, laugh and sweat!"


After her class you may be sweaty, challenged and happy.  Ania believes in the continuation of learning from your yoga experience. With her attention to detailand adjustment, you will improve your own practice on this path together and hopefully find her motivation contageous. Ania trusts in the power of the breath and mind which can help you lift yourself, on the mat and beyond. 


Pre-natal & Post-natal Yoga courses


Our courses are run by Ania Caplin, a fully qualified prenatal and postnatal teacher, with the required empathy to help her students.

“My yoga sessions for mums and mums to be are very gentle and safe. They are designed to help to enjoy pregnancy and the period after with minimal discomfort, cultivate breath awareness and strengthen the body in preparation for labor and assist recovery. Every one of them will include yoga sequences specifically adapted for pregnancy or postnatal period to appreciate the benefits of practice. Every class ends with a guided relaxation allowing the body to release tensions and the mind to become still. Yoga during pregnancy creates the unique connection between the mother and baby. Both mother and baby are nourished and energy is renewed. Postnatal classes empower new mums to accept changes in their bodies and adapt to their new role. Yoga in my opinion is also a safe way to get fit, healthy, vital and strong again.”


Each pregnancy is different and complex.  Ania believes that with her experience as a qualified teacher and new mum she can offer every mum to be an appropiate support and practice on her indivial journey to the motherhood. 

"I love teaching prenatal classes. All this blooming energy radiating from mums to be. I feel honoroud  to help them enjoy the pregnancy with a minimal discomfort, cultivate breath awarness and strenghten the body in preperation for the big day."




'Ania is a wonderful yoga teacher.  She is always mindful of students injuries/conditions and she makes all students feel welcome whether new to her class or regular students.

Her classes are challenging if you need them to be however Ania always insists you are mindful of how you are feeling and gives alternatives to ensure everyone is included at different levels.  Her vinyasa classes are varied and well planned but Ania can (and has) adapted a whole class plan, in an instance, to suit the mood of the whole class - one of my favourite classes was just this!

The words that immediately spring to mind to describe Ania's classes are; fun; enjoyable; challenging; mindful and she has a wicked sense of humor.  Ania's classes give me the opportunity to forget the world and go into myself for a lovely 1 and ¼ hrs.

'I have been attending Anna's classes for over a year now and cannot recommend her highly enough;  her classes are always fun, challenging, rewarding and well thought out.   Anna brings a genuine joy and happy spirit to the class which is contagious and her adjustments are heavenly,  she has encouraged us all to develop and grow and even succeeded in moving me to do arm balances !! I feel very lucky to have found such a great and caring teacher. Alison'

'I joined Ania's class when I was 20 weeks pregnant - it helped me to relax and soon became the highlight of my week. I used the positions at home, at work and during my labour - they all really helped. I also attend a class when I was overdue and just hours later my little started her journey into the world... The class that day really relaxed me and perhaps got things moving!?
