Annie has been “officially” practicing yoga since 2001. However, even as a young child at the age of 10, she found relief from muscular pains caused from an injury that lead her to a body cast for several months, by doing many stretches which later in life she learned to be yoga poses she practices today. Yoga is her passion. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in 2009 at Yoga Source. As a rehabilitated patient herself, having to relearn how to walk, twice in her life, she has experienced the therapeutic benefits of yoga. She was searching for a complete system that would merge the traditional essence of yoga, sport’s medicine, and stress reduction which is how her practice has bloomed. She strives to be an inspirational and creative leader who guides students toward awareness and control of their own bodies and minds. As a yoga teacher, her goal is to enable others to experience a release through mindfulness, stretch and strength. Annie has been inspired through yoga to work with awareness of the physical body and mind to help alleviate pain and resistance, mentally and physically. She wants to share with others what she has learned through her yoga practice.
