Ann

Ann believes yoga should be fun. Her classes are playful and challenging and she teaches with the intention to guide others to be present in their experiences on and off the mat. Always teaching with an emphasis on alignment, Ann encourages her students to adapt the practice to their own unique needs. Ann believes that full body wellness is generated from the Mind-Body connection. That connection is founded in every one of Ann's class whether students walk, hobble or roll into her classes.

    There are many potential yoga students who feel they are not physically able to experience the benefits of yoga. This is the place where adaptive yoga and its benefits become evident. This training is designed to teach participants to identify, understand, and adapt their teaching to ensure this population does not have to feel this way.
     
    Participants will experience adaptive yoga firsthand while working with students that have mobility/disability challenges. We will explore universal principles inherent to asana that can be shared with students regardless of whether they walk, hobble, or roll into class.
     
    Anyone can benefit from this training including yoga instructors, healthcare providers, support partners & caregivers. Studio Bamboo will provide lunch on Sunday. Continuing education credits will be available.
