"Yoga is the practice of overcoming the obstacle of the mind to experience one's own true nature."
An adventurous and playful yogi at heart, Anne is a 500-RYT, 200-ERYT teacher who believes in the connecting power of yoga. Leading with compassion, Anne designs her sequences to be both challenging and rejuvenating. Her intention is to create a supportive wholistic space for her students to connect back to themselves through mindful movement.
A lover of movement, Anne came to the practice as a way to regain the freedom in her body she experienced when she danced ballet. Holding a corporate job for seven years, yoga provided a catalyst to break the repetitive patterns of her day and helped Anne open up to be more present and capable in other aspects of her life. Anne designs her classes to give that same experience to her students through mindful movement and encouraging them to explore and be open to listening to themselves.
Deeply caring about the structural alignment of each pose, Anne first addresses the physicality and then layers in the subtle elements of the practice. With a degree in Biology and Psychology, Anne has studied the impact yoga has on the relationship of mind and body and believes in yoga's inherent benefit for wholistic wellbeing.
In 2017 Anne spent a month living and learning at Radhanath Swami's Govardhan Eco Village in Mumbai, India. There Anne received her 300-hour Bhakti Yoga training through Supersoul Farm Yoga led by Raghunath Cappo. This was a formative training that deepened her practice in ayurveda, therapeutics, yin, and her understanding of the philosophy of yoga. Anne is currently deepening her study of Bhakti Yoga here in Boston and is inspired to share these teaching with the community.
