About Hilary Symmans
My main motivation is for clients to leave their session feeling better than when they arrived – whether physically, mentally, or emotionally (if it’s all 3 then even better!).
I obtained my Body Control Pilates basic mat qualifications in 2000 and then progressed to qualifications in the Pilates Reformer and Stability Chair. When I moved over to the Island in 2011, I focused purely on Pilates mat classes, however I missed teaching on the Pilates equipment, so took the plunge and invested in a new reformer and chair. Whilst they can look a little scary to start with, they are fabulous to work on and give my clients a more effective workout. So, once again I am happily teaching both 1-2-1’s and shared sessions on the equipment, at the Anahata studio in Shanklin.
I discovered Dru Yoga in 2009 and began a 2 year teaching diploma in 2012. Upon qualifying in 2014, I started teaching classes in Whippingham. Dru Yoga is so different to Pilates, but a wonderful way to stay flexible and it really helps to find that inner stillness which is often so evasive in our busy lives!
All in all, I love my job and find it so satisfying to see clients go away from their sessions de-stressed and able to move more freely.
I do hope you will join me in your journey to a better way of life.
About Carol Macartney
My journey began with my training in the Sivananda style of yoga and thereafter meandered through the paths of Scaravelli, Ashtanga, Yin and Vinyasa. Most importantly culminating in the meeting of my teacher over the last fifteen years, Clive Sheridan who embodies and transmits the teaching of Advaita Vedanta. I trained in 2014 in Shakti Dance with the beautiful Sara Olivier (Avtar Kaur), the yoga of Dance.
If you are looking to attend any of my offerings be it a retreat, a workshop or a weekly class, you can expect a fusion of Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Mantra, Mudras, readings and quotes, but more than anything a sense of open heartedness, joy and love.
Everyone is welcome, whether you are beginning on your path or have years of experience because we all inspire each other.

Gong Bath at The Anahata Yoga and Pilates Studio
Running on the first Tuesday of every month,the gong bath is a one hour immersion in sacred and healing sound where the full sonic potential of the gong bathes the listener with sustained waves of primordial sound. The sounds and vibrations of the gong create deep relaxation and state of meditation by altering brain waves from a Beta (waking state) to Theta & Delta (deep meditation),that facilitates the movement of chi or prana (positive life energy) throughout the body.
The gong's sound can be used to rebalance and tone the emotional, physical and spiritual bodies. It is a deeply relaxing experience and is very good at relieving pain, stress or dealing with personal issues.
Each gong bath is different, as is each person’s experience in the gong bath and is unique to them.
During a gong bath you may lay on your back, your stomach,your side, or you may sit up. Which ever way you choose there will be yoga mats and blankets available at the studio to ensure you are warm and comfortable as you journey.
When the session ends we will hold the silence for a short while before gently bringing you back into this realm. We shall then close the session with a short group OM.
The doors will be open at 19-15 to meet and greet, relax and settle.The front door will then be locked at 19-30 prompt so there is no disturbance caused to those that are settled and ready to be immersed in the sounds of the gongs.
An energy exchange of just £5 and places limited to 12.
