Here’s a bit more about my journey to today:

My name is Anthony Middleton, originally from West Yorkshire (UK), but now living in Rotterdam (NL) where I work as a Massage Therapist, Movement & Yoga teacher, as I further train as a Physiotherapist.

As mentioned, I am a fully qualified Massage Therapist and Movement & Yoga teacher, working through the highly-rated health and fitness business ‘Yogaground‘.

My journey through various movement disciplines begins from childhood, where I trained and competed as an International-level Acrobatic Gymnast, on various occasions representing the UK at internaional competitions (incl. World Bronze Medallist in 2003).

As my career in competitive sport drew to a close, I transitioned into a career as a professional dancer and choreographer. Having worked with companies around the UK and overseas, I also formed my own acrobatic dance company that toured nationally and internationally until 2018, where i then decided to transition from performing into a more therapeutic occupation.

I headed to the Bahamas, where I trained at the ‘Sivananda International Yoga Ashram’ in postural Yoga and Pranayama. Upon my return to the UK, I began teaching Yoga, incorporating my own movement ideas, particularly exploring the fluidity and sensation that is generated through a more fluid approach the Yoga practice.

I then also become interested in Bodywork and Massage, so I then completed my ‘Soft Tissue Therapy & Massage’ BTEC level 5 training at the highly-regarded ‘London School of Sports & Remedial Massage‘.

Upon completion of this course, I had already decided, along with my wife Isabel, to move to the Netherlands, where I began teaching and practicing massage, under the name of ‘the Body Engineer’.

In 2020, I then began a full-time BSc study, in Physiotherapy, at the ‘European School of Physiotherapy’.
