A Yoga Academy graduate teacher and student Forum

with Annie Sullivan, Bindie Edwards and Anji Gopal


30 September, 2018

Copthorne Parish Hub, Gatwick

PRICE: £75

6 hours towards RYT500


This first Yoga Academy Forum, to be held at Copthorne near Gatwick on Sunday 30 September, will be hosted by Simon Low’s assistants, Annie Sullivan and Bindie Edwards.


The purpose is to bring Yoga Academy graduates and students together to share questions and knowledge. Annie and Bindie will give an update on ways that Simon’s teaching may have changed recently before exploring theme-related teaching issues, in this instance the question of PAIN.


At this first Forum, osteopath and yoga teacher, Anji Gopal, will give a talk on pain – what it is neurologically and what it means to our students. Anji will discuss the different types of pain; how our students may respond to these; and how best we can work with them in class. She will follow the talk with a gentle, restorative practice that she uses when working with patients who suffer with chronic pain.


Anji GopalAbout Anji Gopal


Anji is both a yoga teacher and registered osteopath. Her teaching is informed by a deep understanding of how pain, stress and strains can exert pressures on our bodies and minds. Anji gained her Osteopathic Masters’ degree with distinction at the British School of Osteopathy. Her research work in pain included how it can be influenced by meditation.


Qualifying as a yoga teacher with Triyoga, Anji runs her own clinic in Ealing where her focus is on using yoga and other pain management tools to access the body’s self-healing mechanisms. She also takes her yoga-based program to treat chronic pain patients at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (UCLH).
