| About Us

 

Giving you space for health and healing

Centre Anahata is an all-in-one holistic healing and health centre that uses multiple therapies and treatments to aid our  guests in deep relaxation in order to de-stress, heal and feel healthy and well. We are cultivating a community that believes in using the body’s own natural power to heal through holistic treatments, massage, yoga and meditation alongside a healthy, compassionate lifestyle. 

Our centre, with you at the heart.

Centre Anahata was first established in 2014 by our founder Rebecca. The centre was born with the intention of developing into an inclusive community health hub, run by a collaboration of healers and visionaries where the healing of individuals, communities and our planet are one and the same. In 2021, Rebecca opened a new space for the centre in the heart of Medway with a yoga studio, massage therapy space and vegetarian/vegan cafe and organic refill shop.

From her first class over 20 years ago, she began the journey of self-discovery into her own body and the changes she felt emotionally and physically after practicing yoga were what inspired her to train as a yoga teacher. 

Nina qualified as a yoga instructor at Frog Lotus Yoga in Spain in 2012 and has been teaching passionately ever since. 

She believes yoga can be anyones tool for a healthy body and mind. Her classes are fun and active, designed to move and breathe in unison with focus and awareness, leaving you feeling re-energised and grounded.

    He has been looking at methods to facilitate and encourage healing. In his previous job he was fortunate enough to travel extensively and experience the effects of sounds therapy in different part of the world, he then decided to train in gong playing with the very talented Mark Swan.

    He believes that regular sounds bath are as beneficial as regular massage , yoga class etc. It is done in a very passive way, so it is accessible to anyone. 

    Gong baths produce harmony , when we are able to mindfully absorb healing sound , a sense of balance can occur which energises our entire energetic system. Vibration rises and our lives begins to transform as we experience vibrant health on different levels.
