The workshop is geared towards beginners and anyone looking to get back to the basics of yoga.  Annie uses her anatomy based Yoga Medicine Training to help practitioners focus on alignment and moving safely through sun salutations and basic postures.  

I believe in a therapeutic, orthopedic, anatomy-based approach to movement in the body.  My love for yoga started in 2001 and following my path to teaching, became a certified 200RYT in 2005 from the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA through the amazing teachings of Ganga White and Tracey Rich.  Not long after receiving my yoga certification I was introduced to the Pilates method.  I realized the synergetic relationship Yoga and Pilates could offer to truly connect the body to mindful movement.  I then pursued my Pilates training and received my Reformer I, II, III certification through Balanced Body University.  After becoming a mother in 2010, I received my children's yoga certification in San Francisco, CA so I could give my daughters and other children the gift of yoga in their lives.  I'm always continuing my education and am most recently working on my 500RYT through Yoga Medicine.  I am continuing this journey expanding my depth of knowledge and working closely with healthcare practitioners to provide yoga and Pilates as medicine for both the body and mind.

ACRO Workshop <3 Partner Communication through ACRO

Partner Communication through Acro: Challenge your mind and body while learning new ways to communicate with a partner.

Acrobatic, friend, business and romantic partnerships all share similar challenges when it comes to communication. In this workshop we will practice new communication and observation skills, breakdown barriers, and test what makes a partnerships work. We will focus on individual growth as well as interpersonal skills through a series of exercises and games that will challenge anyone from a first time acrobat to a long time acro and or yoga practitioner. The same progression based model will apply to partnerships; so bring your long time life partner, an acro partner, your bff, a friend from work, your mom, or the person you met yesterday but want to learn more about and come play!

We will offer a variety of partner exercizes, some verbal, some non verbal, and several using acroyoga basics to explore communication and connection between you and your partner. No acroyoga experience required to participate in this workshop. However, if you do have acro experience Eric and Amber will offer you exercises to do during the workshop that are at your level.

Cost is $50/couple. $45 if you pre-register before the date of the workshop.

She has studied with numerous internationally known yoga teachers but her best teacher has been her pain. "My pain has not been in vein, I have more compassion and understanding when it comes to limited mobility and discomfort in movement.
