Anna Fornal Yoga

 Welcome to Anna Fornal Yoga. Thank you for visiting my web page!


I provide Yoga classes, Yoga events 1:2:1 and corporate sessions around the Grantham, Bourne and Sleaford areas of Lincolnshire.


I teach Hatha yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Flow inspired Yoga. 

I am passionate about holding a space for you to discover and connect with yourself, to nurture yourself & find some ease and space through the gifts yoga practice can bring, on & off the mat.

I hope to provide YOU with a multi-layered experience that weaves together the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga.

I teach in a friendly, relaxed and accessible way that empowers you to connect, listen to your body and move in a way that feels nourishing to you. All this without judgement, instead with an understanding and acceptance of your own limitations. 

I truly believe that yoga is for everyone and for everyBODY no matter how flexible you think you are and that every person comes to yoga for different reasons. I hope you find what you are looking for in my classes.

I strive to help you create your own self-practice using a variety of yoga, philosophy & mindfulness tools, so you can adapt your practice to suit your needs on any given day.

I hope to create a safe, welcoming space for you to reconnect with yourself, so that you feel at ease, well stretched, revitalised, but most importantly, fulfilled & present in mind & body. 

“Yoga is not about self-improvement, it’s about self-acceptance.” – Sharon Gannon

Whether you are interested in joining my weekly class, a yoga workshop or retreat or perhaps private session to tailor the practice to your individual needs, I hope I can help.

Hatha Yoga Classes

Make some regular time to tune in and nurture yourself at my weekly  Yoga classes. Whether you are looking to relax, energise, balance or heal, the practice of self-inquiry mindful movement will support you and help you on and off the mat

Private Yoga session

Yoga classes at work place  is a low-cost and innovative solution for companies wanting to reduce health care expenses, relieve workplace stress and promote employee well-being.


By uniting the movement of the body with the breath, yoga helps to quiet the mind.

When the mind is quieter, in time, we experience peacefulness and a connection.

We begin to listen. We become more aware and we find a place in the present moment. Eventually, we develop an evenness of mind that lasts beyond our time on the mat.

Hatha Yoga

I aim to create safe and accessible classes to all in a friendly and relaxed environment! All abilities welcome- from the curious beginner to the advanced yogi!

During my classes, you will be encouraged to explore what’s possible for you! As a yoga teacher and massage therapist, I have a passion for body alignment and anatomy to help students work with tension or pain and keep them safe in their practice.

My physical practice (asana) is slow flowing and alignment focused, where movement is linked through the breath to allow the body to release tension and relax. Positions are held to build overall body strength, stamina and freedom in the body.

I will make small adjustments and modification throughout the practice to suit the needs of each student as I believe that there is no one size fits all in yoga practice. Expect to experience more than just the asana (physical practice)!

I will encourage you to be kind to yourself & to your body, to observe and listen…. to reconnect and find a place in the present moment.

There will be opportunities for self-discovery & some important YOU time, (whatever that might mean to you).

There is often a focus on self-love, gratitude & mindfulness through gentle visualisation & relaxation techniques.

Remember, there is no EGO in Yoga. There is no competitive element! It is YOUR practice and you work within your own limitation (whatever they may be: physical or mental)!

I hope you will feel at ease, well stretched, revitalised, but most importantly, fulfilled & present in mind & body.

Short workshops , events and day retreats will offer you a chance to deepen your Yoga practice and to step out of your busy life for a while to slow down, rest and reconnect to your truer SELF .

Tips for your first yoga class:

This may be your first yoga class or you may be returning to yoga? That's great news and I am excited to have you joining my friendly class! I love yoga and the benefits (both physical and mental) that come with practising yoga and I am excited to share this with you.

However, you may be uncertain as to what to expect from the class which is natural of course when trying anything new!

So here is some useful information for your first class that will hopefully put your mind at ease:

Group yoga classes

What do I wear?

Yoga Mats

What do I bring?

Anna Fornal Yoga

What do I do?

Anna Fornal Yoga Mandala

• My typical class will incorporate a short period of breathing practice to settle the mind and prepare our mind, body and breath for the physical posture work.


• We will then move onto warming and mobilisation postures before moving onto stronger postures. Everyone will be included because I explain and demonstrate how each posture can be modified to benefit any student regardless of ability, experience, shape or size. A modified version or variation of a posture has exactly the same benefits as full expressions of the postures.

• Often there will be a theme to the class, and/or or one or two peak postures/ or short sequence of postures which we work towards during the class.

• The physical posture work will be followed by relaxation. There are many different relaxation techniques that can be used. Guided relaxation is an excellent method of helping us manage stress and calm the body and mind.

• All you need to bring is yourself! If you have a yoga mat then bring that along too, but if you need a mat I have some spare ones. However, for hygiene reasons it would be advisable to invest in one.

• For comfort you might want to bring something warm to wear and/or a blanket for the relaxation part of the practice but these are not essential. Although the room will be comfortably warm you may find that you feel cool as you relax as the breathing and heart rate become slower. Also, you might want to bring a cushion to sit on for the breathing practice but again this is not essential.

(Tip: a rolled-up blanket is also perfect for kneeling to protect the knees).


• Bring a bottle of water if you would like in case you get thirsty.


• Towel, yoga strap or any other props you may have. I have some spare blocks, bricks and straps if needed.

• Wear loose, comfortable clothing (generally not restricting movements).

•During the physical part of the practice, you will have to take your socks off. This is for the safety reasons (socks on yoga mats can be slippy!) but it will also allow you to feel more grounded during the practice by having our feet in contact with the mat.

If you have any more questions about what to expect from your first class please get in touch.

I look forward to welcoming you to my class

What People Say

I am totally hooked on Anna’s sessions. As a mum of two small ones (and the hidden load that comes with that), I was in desperate need of some time to myself - to find something that could help me completely be in the moment. Anna’s classes did that and more for me. From the first time I walked through the door of Anna’s class I felt welcomed and at ease. I love how Anna makes yoga accessible and offers other ways to adapt asanas to make it work for all. I’m also really enjoying the philosophy Anna shares during her classes, as well as treating us to various wonderful sounds using bowls/ocean drum/bells (so much so that I’ve now booked on to all of Anna’s retreats/events as well!).
I would highly recommend this truly wonderful lady to anybody who would like to give yoga a go.
Thank you Anna 🙏 🧘‍♀️
