Yoga Teacher, business owner Aanaa Yoga
I am a yoga teacher who loves to teach others to find a practice that enhances their life, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Helping people and teaching yoga is my passion. I enjoy the process of learning about each person then figuring out a plan that is right for them. Yoga is a very individualized practice. Every season of life brings with it different needs. The practice of yoga can be fluid and evolve throughout the year and even a lifetime. As we meet privately we co-create a yoga practice that will meet you right where you are. Learn the art of linking mind, breath and body. Reducing stress, building strength, increasing flexibility and finding balance are just a few benefits that a yoga practice can produce.
Yoga for Scoliosis is my specialty and where my heart lies. Working with teens and pre-teens with scoliosis is the main population that I work with. Yoga for scoliosis means that the poses are modified to elongate, de-rotate and strengthen the spine. Each scoliotic spine is different so the poses will also look different to accommodate the individual. My goals are to develop a series of poses the meet the needs of each teen while providing a positive and encouraging atmosphere.
I also enjoy working with adults that have scoliosis. Many adults with scoliosis have persistent pain and weakness due to their curve. Accepting that there are no great solutions for their curved spine. Building strength and alignment to combat the effects that gravity has on a scoliotic spine can bring better alignment and reduce nagging discomfort. The beauty of a yoga practice is that once you learn what works for your spine you can practice anytime and anywhere, giving you the power to heal yourself.
I believe that anyone at any age can benefit from yoga. If you have a desire to discover how yoga can benefit you feel free to contact me.
I look forward to meeting you!
As an avid runner I was injured with chronic shin splints and plantar fasciitis. I decided to take a break from running to rest my body and heal. The club I joined offered yoga classes so I thought I would "temporarily" practice yoga until I felt better. Of course, that never happened! I fell in love with the practice - the mindfulness, breath and movement and knew soon after this was something special that I wanted to teach others.
I like to say that the first time a client enters my studio they know right away it is an oasis from the outside world. A welcoming experience where we get to know each other and talking about goals and how yoga a personally guided yoga practice can help;.
If you can breath you can practice yoga! Yoga can be customized to you, no matter your age, ability or flexibly.
That is the beauty of private sessions. We look at your goals and fit the practice into your life, not the other way around.
