Yogis Anonymous

To say that yoga saved her life is somewhat of an understatement. Annie found yoga when she first moved to Los Angeles in 2002. As with most early practitioners, it was in addition to a regular workout routine. After years of battling with an eating disorder Annie lost all mind-body connection. While in a recovery program, during which she was only permitted to practice a restorative form of yoga, Annie met a few amazing yoga teachers, who helped her through her recovery.

In 2011, she completed her 200 hour certification in hatha yoga at Liberation Yoga in Los Angeles. Annie continues her studies with Will Duprey as she works towards her 300 hour RYT (yoga alliance certified). She is certified to teach children, tween, and teen yoga, as well.

When she's not teaching or practicing yoga, Annie teaches pre-kindergarten to 22 exuberant 4 year olds! Annie's classes draw upon the freedom of vinyasa flow as it purposefully connects the breath to each movement, with a sense of a lyrical dance.

    Vinyasa Flow Intermediate

    Transitions and changes are challenging, but they are inevitable. In life, we will constantly be shifting and taking new positions. Sometimes we can plan and prepare for these changes, and sometimes they are thrown at us with no warning. Our yoga practice can help us prepare. How do you move through transitions? Can you accept each moment, breathe, and observe how transitions affect your body, your stability and your inner dialogue? We might wobble and even fall, but it's how we accept these challenges and move forward. This practice can help prepare you for these types of changes...yoga may not be a magic solution, but it sure is a beautiful starting point.
