Anne grew up with horses in New Mexico. She rode for both show and pleasure until she was a teenager and moved to Oregon. She is beyond excited for opportunities to connect with horse energy again. Anne discovered yoga for the first time in a pre-natal yoga class in Portland. The baby she carried then is now 24 and an independent woman, but yoga stuck and became a lifelong practice! Three years ago, Anne decided to take her yoga to the next level and pursued her yoga teacher certification at the Pavones Yoga Center in Costa Rica. Since then she has had ongoing training in pranayama, yin and power vinyasa yoga styles, mindfulness meditation (including training at Thich Nhat Han's Plum Village Monastery in the south of France) and trauma informed yoga. She currently practices at the Daya Foundation and teaches at the Mt. Scott Community Center as well as occasionally at Woodstock Wellness Center. Anne's day job is as a high school English teacher. She is so pleased to bring her life's passions together by working with Anke on the beautiful symmetry and natural connections between spirituality, yoga and horsemanship.
