Hatha, the physical practice of yoga, is a vehicle towards self-awareness. As Iyengar says, ”Health begins with firmness in the body, deepens to emotional stability, then leads to intellectual clarity, wisdom and finally the unveiling of the soul … . We work with the body to perfect the soul.“ As we deepen and connect with ourselves through the practice of hatha yoga, we let go of physical, mental and emotional habits that are uneccessary. Yoga starts with the physical and ultimately takes the practitioner to a much deeper level of experience.
Whether you are visiting Stone Ridge or High Falls in beautiful Ulster County, or live in the Hudson Valley full or part time, the place to be for yoga is in Anne’s class in the choir loft of the 19th century church that is now MaMA. Anne has created her own unique style of rigorous and fun vinyasa flow that inspires all levels of practitioners. The classes, conducted at a steady but fluid pace, allow each student their own unique experience.
Anne also has an extensive private clientele ranging from farmers to celebrities in the Hudson Valley and NYC. In home private instruction whether Upstate or down is a gift that keeps on giving.
Private classes in either yoga or meditation give both instructor and student greater access to guidance that deepens and expands their individual practice. Anne has worked in injury rehabilitation and with every level from beginning to advanced. Her experience ranges from leading children’s creative movement to designing programs for seniors, athletes and actors. Prenatal yoga is also available to women throughout their pregnancy.
