I first learnt yoga while living in remote villages in Bali in 1976, and since then yoga has continued to be a major part of my life.  I qualified to teach yoga at Yoga for Health GB in 1994 and completed Yoga Therapy in 1995 also with Yoga for Health GB.

I specialise in teaching yoga to people of all physical and mental backgrounds as well as teaching general classes. My teaching has included people in wheelchairs from various conditions, disabled elite athletes, profoundly deaf, people with MS, people with cerebral palsy, street kids and people with intellectual disability.

Over the past 20 years I have been teaching women with breast cancer and breast cancer related lymphoedema (BCRL) and have a Master of Medical Sciences degree from research into yoga and women with BCRL. 

I offer two accredited teacher training courses with the Australian Association of Yoga Therapists (AAYT);

1 Teaching yoga  to women having breast cancer treatment.

2 Teaching yoga to women with BCRL.

I am also a teacher in the Graduate Certificate of Yoga Therapy (GCYT).

what people are saying about Annette Loudon

Susan Forsyth Sydney

Yoga I first met Annette at the beginning of 2002 when I was wanting to begin gentle yoga in an attempt to gain some flexibility in my back, after having a diagnosis of advanced secondary breast cancer Annette looked after each individual student and their particular problem in the most caring, gentle and compassionate way. It was almost as though we each had a private lesson. Particular movements were altered and modified to suit the capabilities of each one of us. Relaxation and meditation at the beginning and end of each class was inspiring and relevant to us all. Over the time I attended Annettes classes I witnessed many students who had very difficult medical problems but who always gained enormously from Annettes yoga expertise and her unfaltering kindness. I can say without fear of contradiction that all of Annettes students have nothing but praise for her ability as a yoga teacher and the utmost respect for her as a person.

Hi Annette Just letting you know how much I enjoyed your DVD. You have a really good presence in front of the camera and I found all your instructions for the yoga poses were very clear and helpful. It was good to have the explanations so I knew why actions were performed and I could listen and know what to do without always watching the TV. Loved the candle meditation and found the information given really interesting. It was good to have both talking and silence. Overall a great DVD which I both enjoyed and learnt a lot from.
