Update January 2021
Due to Covid-19 national restrictions, our Bromsgrove studio & shop is sadly closed.
Throughout 2020 we have been working on our ability to offer our classes on a digital platform and are really proud to offer a comprehensive online studio space and regular live group classes.
We cannot wait to get back in the studio and feel the unmistakable energy of a face to face class but for now may we thank all of our members and friends for their continued support and look forward to creating more content for you.

Hmmmm about me.... I set up Daily Bread Yoga in June 2017 having worked in a corporate environment for years and feeling totally unfulfilled. Poor mental and physical health brought me to yoga and I just haven't looked back!
Daily Bread Studio opened July 2018, driven by a desire to bring the concept of dedicated yoga studios out of the big cities and share just how powerful a mindful practice can be. Outside of yoga I am a qualified Crystal Coach and Spiritual Life Coach, I live an extremely blessed life with my husband and we are expecting our first child in March 2021.
I want to see people moving naturally, the way Their body was designed to move. This might not be exactly the way it looks in yoga books or on the internet but knowing and trusting your own individual self is so much more powerful, both on and off the mat.
I teach a flowing style, focusing on the journey and feeling rather than the ‘end pose’. In my mind yoga is about balance; part of becoming a whole person is being authentic, that means learning to love every part of you - even the less than perfect parts. We have become so used to not listening and trusting ourselves, yoga is the perfect antidote to our hectic lives.
Favourite place: Roda, Corfu. It’s where I go to be by the water, away from technology and the busyness of life. The food is so good too!
Favourite pose: A nice low lunge. After sitting for a while i love the feeling of getting in to the hips and giving my legs a good stretch .
Usually I’ll hang out here, sway a bit and connect with my breath.
Studio Manager | Pilates | Meditation
Hi, I’m Annie. I have been teaching Fitness Classes since 2004, teaching a range of classes in the community and at the local gyms in Bromsgrove and Redditch, and am a member of the Register Of Exercise Professionals at level 3.
Of all the various types of fitness classes I have taught, my heart lies with Pilates & Meditation. I love Pilates because it conditions both the mind and the body using well designed, quality movements which are carried out mindfully, slowly and carefully.
Meditation is a great way to step outside the business of life and take a moment of inner calmness. I feel that modern living has forced the majority of people to be rushing around, taking care of loved ones, family, friends, work colleagues, and forget to share some of that love with themselves. I like to give people the opportunity to stop and do just that.
Favourite place: At home surrounded by my wonderful family. My favourite place to visit is the Manjushri Kadampa Temple in Ulverston where I go to meditate guided by Buddhist monks. It really is magical.
Favourite pose: My favourite Pilates exercise is actually the very beginning of class where we simply stand, sit or lie placing the body into the best alignment we can to ensure the rest of the session is as effective and safe as possible.
Deputy Studio Manager | Yoga
I am a South African singer songwriter, musician and have had a successful career in South Africa for ten years. I took a break from music to travel and work in yachting which allowed me the opportunity to experience loads of different countries and cross the Atlantic Ocean by boat, which was a highlight. In 2019 my partner and I came to settled in the UK on a narrowboat and have been making a new life for ourselves ever since.
Yoga has always been part of my life, I found it as a teenager and have been practicing on and off since then. In 2017 I did my 200- hour Yoga Teacher Training, which I absolutely loved, and so my fascination with anatomy began.
Favourite place: This has to be anywhere on the water, I feel at home.
Favourite pose: A deep Pidgeon pose. I absolutely love teaching Yin Yoga and find this pose is an instant way to relive physical and mental tension every time!
If you have had a recent injury, surgery or are perhaps struggling with certain aspects of your yoga and/or pilates practice then please knock on my door, drop me an email or give me a call. I’m sure we can help you.
I assess and treat all things that are musculoskeletal in nature. If you are struggling with pain in relation to muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, bones or nerves then I’m your first port of call.
Treatments we offer include manual therapy (hands on treatment that includes mobilisations, manipulations and various soft tissue techniques), bespoke exercise - based rehabilitation, acupuncture and taping. I am registered with all the major health insurers and if you are self-paying as members of daily bread yoga you do get a cheeky little discount.
I’m married to the lovely Sara and have 2 fantastic boys Finn and Jesse who keep me very busy when I’m not at work. Outside of work my passions include sport (in particular football, cricket and darts – yes you did read that correctly…darts), watching live music and comedy, travelling, enjoying different cuisines (with fine wine of course) and I keep myself fit by running.
Favourite place: Apart from the obvious ones of being at home with the family, being in the Cross at Finstall or of course at Daily Bread Yoga my spiritual home has to be Villa Park. Home to the other love of my life and the scene of so many great memories.
Favourite pose: As a novice yoga practitioner, I would have to say the tree as I’m still bedding my roots down in the yoga world!
