Each day, you will gather together for 6 hours of practice to shift your awareness inwardly, holistically, and mindfully.

The morning practice will focus on active (Yang) and mindful movement practices. Emphasizing back care and core connection to promote strength and stability, you will learn how to fully integrate on a physical and energetic level for a skillful asana practice.

The afternoon practice will focus on earth-based (Yin) poses along with Restorative practices. Yin poses are held for some time with an emphasis on meditative mind states throughout and will include the teachings of Metta (loving-kindness).

The whole together time will be permeated with periods of silence and Mindfulness meditation practices along with journaling and theory of practice. This encourages a sense of ease in the body and mind that will empower emotional balance and C.H.A.N.G.E. (Compassion, Health, Awareness, Nurture, Gratitude, and Engagement).

    "I have practiced yoga for many years and without a doubt, the teacher’s voice, attitude, and approach is of the paramount importance. Of the many teachers I have met before, Ann scores very highly. She has a beautifully measured approach. Her routines and the structure of her session are so well planned, her voice is soothing, her knowledge is phenomenal, and her attitude is wonderful."
