Anji Gopal

BSc (Hons), M.Ost

Anji is a London-based back pain expert who typically works with professionals who’ve struggled with Low Back Pain for more than 2 years. She is a passionate advocate of using Yoga as an evidence-informed healthcare intervention and over the last 15 years she has built an area of clinical expertise in Yoga for BackCare. She brings an academic and professional grounding to use Yoga as a practical and gentle way to improve our whole health. Anji shares this work in private practice, in the NHS, and as a teacher and educator. Her combination of skills in yoga, back care and clinical practice are unique in the UK and she works with people around the world.

In 2016 she developed an innovative yoga-based programme for back pain patients in a London hospital – the first of its kind to be offered in the UK – and now offers this programme in her clinics in London and online. Anji trained at the prestigious British School of Osteopathy, teaches at London’s top studios and educates yoga teachers and other therapists. She is a regular speaker at online training networks for manual therapists. Anji’s dissertation focused on Interoception, Chronic Low Back Pain & mind-body practices.

Improving wellbeing and day-to-day life

Anji’s approach is to encourage people of all ages, backgrounds and restrictions to find better health through simple, accessible and yet powerful yoga teachings. Her teaching style is kind, practical and approachable, combining an academic and professional grounding with a sense of enjoyment. She seeks to de-mystify yoga and present it as a useful tool to find health. Anji has been teaching Yoga for BackCare in her own style for over 5 years.

Anji is a little over 50 & a mum to two teens. Her first degree is in Econometrics and she used to be quite a senior investment banker, but has a lot more job satisfaction these days.

Her motivation in developing Yoga for BackCare is to share her knowledge, knowing that this approach improves the wellbeing and day-to-day life of anyone who finds that back pain gets in the way.  To find out about Anji’s clinic click here
