Anne has practiced yoga for almost 40 years. She believes the greatest teacher is the one students find in themselves, when they creatively explore and viscerally understand their body’s own unique patterns and experiences. Yoga has been central to Anne’s ability to engage in vigorous physical activities, while creating harmony with past injuries and chronic pain.
Anne has two 200-hour RYT certifications, including a 100-hour Anusara Immersion, with Sandy Adler and Michele Bulgatz, as well as teacher training with Sarahjoy Marsh. Anne also trained in Yoga Nidra with Lisa Namyet and obtained her certificate as a Bo Yoga Instructor with Nate Guadagni. As a teacher, Anne leads her classes in slow and deliberate rhythms that allow for self-awareness and deep experiences of integration and alignment. Anne has a BA in South Asian Languages and Indian Epic Literature (Mahabharata and Ramayana), studied Hindi, Urdu, and Sanskrit and lived in South Asia. Anne has an MA in Third World Development, is an attorney, a Certified Presence-Based® Coach and is also a certified mediator who works with Eugene’s Center for Dialogue and Resolution.
