About Me


(Yoga Alliance 200hrs, TTYMA Thai Yoga Massage, BYTA Meditation, Reiki Level 1, Reiki Level 2)

Hi! My name is Anna Konycheva and I am a qualified Yoga and meditation teacher, Thai massage therapist and Reiki practitioner.

My journey into healing began from the practice of yoga which I started in September 2003. From the beginning I was amazed how it made me feel, and I knew then that it was not a purely physical exercise. In 2006 I completed my course in yoga teacher training certified by the Yoga Alliance. I have since studied with many more inspiring teachers like Mark Whitwell, Duncan Wong, Danny Paradise, Sharon Gannon, David Life and Ana Forrest.

During the teacher training I started to become more involved in the spiritual side of yoga, in other words, meditation. In 2007 I qualified as a meditation teacher with Swami Saradananda.

In 2008, by chance, I had a Reiki treatment which fascinated me. I was amazed at the "depth" the experience, and truly got to understand the concept of 'healing hands'. This inspired me to go on and learn Reiki myself.

In 2009 I recieved Reiki 1 and Reiki 2 training under the guidance of Reiki Master Yogi Ashokananda. This was a truly transformational experience which shifted my personal energy and made me more effective in healing people.

In 2009 I began studying Thai Yoga Massage and in 2010 I gained a diploma in Traditional Thai Yoga Massage with Kira Balaskas at Practitioner Level, and in 2011 I completed my Advanced level training.

I have also studied Indian Head Massage which is interrelated with yoga, thai massage and reiki.

I am insured by Holistic Services and a member of the Comlementary Therapist's Association (CTHA).
