Yoga teacher Anne Byworth wants to keep helping those with learning difficulties in a new way.

The 45-year-old has started up her own Yoga, Pilates and Wellness studio The Space East in Forest Gate for people who find it intimidating going into health and fitness centres.

Anne, from Forest Gate, said it’s not something she has always dreamed of doing, but that it came along “later on in life.

She said: “I did not discover yoga until I had my first child and thought it was amazing and loved it from then on.

“It was after I had a bad back, when I started because I thought I’d have a bad back forever, but yoga changed that.”

Anne used to work with people with a learning disability, PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities) and people on the autistic spectrum for more than 20 years.

“Last year I took redundancy, and started to set up my own sessions - I trained in yoga and did more specific training, for learning disabilities, Power yoga, ADD, ADHD and autism as well as Teen yoga and Yoga4Autism.”

Sessions for teens, pilates and yoga for over 50s, yoga4autism, sensory massage and relaxation, music and movement for learning disabilities, pre and postnatal, back kind yoga and pilates, parent and baby yoga, and hot, and power yoga.
