Anna Karides is a leading Yoga and AcroYoga teacher in the UK and has been teaching for over a decade. In her native Cyprus she took part in long-distance running competitions , as well as doing ballet and modern dance for 13 years. Then at 15 she had a “lucky” accident – a serious hip injury made her take up yoga. She finished yoga teacher training while completing a Masters in Law. Then straight after training to be a barrister, she became the youngest ever certified AcroYoga teacher at the time.
She has international teaching and training experience and has been featured in leading publications from Vogue to The Guardian and named OM Magazine’s Yoga teacher of the month. Her classes are challenging and reflect her passion for backbends, arm balances and inversions but with her thai massage background, can also have a therapeutic focus.
Anna has been part of the Bodyism team since 2014, teaching Group & Private, Yoga and AcroYoga classes.
