About me

My name is Angela Pinder or Anji Rox as I am known , and  I would like to share my passion for yoga and complimentary therapies with you.  1n 2014, after a career change,   I moved back to my home town in South Yorkshire,  and   started  Anji Rox Yoga, I love Yoga, music, being outdoors and festivals along with travel. 

Mad about yoga, having practiced for over 20  years, I  took the plunge and trained to be a  Hatha Yoga teacher with Bristol City Yoga in 2012.  I am registered and insured to teach with the Yoga  Professionals Alliance UK.

My passion is to make Yoga accessible to everyone.  My first class was a lunchtime yoga session, I was so stressed from work and modern life pressures, working full time in a busy job ,   I was desperate. Within seconds of the class beginning I felt an instant relief. I have had my own struggles with back pain,body image, shoulder and neck injuries, not feeling like I have a conventional yoga body (whatever that is).  My journey into yoga has given me an amazing sense of well being and healing. I am hoping that anyone who comes to my classes finds that my teaching style makes yoga something that they enjoy.

I can’t wait for you to join me on the Yoga mat, teaching yoga I am in my absolute happy place!

I so look forward to meeting you,

Big Love Anjix
