what people are saying about Anne Saymontry


I have been practicing yoga for 15 years. Since 2017 I have been practicing yoga exclusively with Anne Saymontry twice a week at Inner West Yoga. I enjoy and look forward to the classes. Anne is a competent, skilled and knowledgeable teacher. Anne gives clear, simple instructions to guide safe poses and pose transitions while also encouraging a mindful and meditative practice. Anne is attentive to the needs of class members and creates a lovely comfortable space for people of all levels to practice.


I have been regularly attending Anne's classes since 2014 (originally at Yogabowl, and then at Inner West Yoga). I find she is very aware of each student's needs, offering variations to suit beginners right through to experienced practitioners. I would highly recommend her classes for those wanting to develop a healthy connection to their body and mind. I often recommend Anne's classes to family and friends and some of them have in turn become regular attendees.


I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and Anne is one of the best teachers I've encountered. She's highly professional but also creates a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere in the class - and teaches to all levels. Thoroughly recommended!


Anne's practice not only improves my strength and flexibility but the elements of mindfulness help me manage the stress of year 12.


I just wanted to thank you for the last 3 terms. I have really enjoyed the Monday night practice. I was surprised at my improvement, physically I noticed I was stronger, more flexible, [and] I could calm down and switch off far easier. The ability to switch off is something I have always struggled with, so this is a great achievement for me.


I have been attending Anne's Inner West Yoga classes for 5 months now and look forward to them every week. Anne has a wonderful gentle and meditative voice which settles you into your practice as soon as you enter the hall, making you forget about the day or weeks stresses.Anne is very informative with her pose descriptions and intentions, making them easy to transition and flow through smoothly. After each class I feel refreshed, ready to continue on with my day and feel good about myself for taking the time out for myself to enjoy mindful stretch in Anne's class.I highly recommend attending Inner West Yoga classes whether you are a beginner or advanced yogi.


Yoga with Anne is always something I look forward to. Her classes are relaxed but engaging, with different poses to challenge us each week. She is highly skilled and knowledgeable and very attentive to individuals, always willing to provide her guidance and support. I find that attending yoga classes ona regular (or sometimes irregular!) basis is a very useful supplement to my other physical activities.
