Known as a “teachers’ teacher,” Annie believes that Yoga practice is a remarkable method for learning to steady the attention on what is actually happening in the moment. From this place, compassion and radical acceptance naturally evolve. Old mindsets of the illusion of separation, of me and them, and self and other, dissolve into the knowledge of wholeness. Annie has been teaching yoga for more than 20 years. She continues to lead her SmartFLOW classes, workshops and her 200 and 500 hour Teacher Trainings in California. Annie travel to festivals, conferences and studios throughout the world sharing her passion and knowledge of yoga. Annie is the author of RelaxDEEPLY, a CD and Yoga for Back Care, a DVD produced by Yoga Journal. She is a contributing editor at Yoga Journal. Respected widely in the yoga community, Annie has a distinctive way of being direct and intense, as well as compassionate, playful and loving.
