Breathe. Open. Strengthen. Be.

Each class is extemporaneous, that is, unscripted and based on the needs of those who show up each time.   Foundational elements of promoting a healthy, balanced spine combined with creative exploration and application of breathwork/pranayama.  I hold a  deep passion for creating a balanced and accurate practice that sketches the wellness needs of the client or group, the blissful benefit intertwined with yogic approaches to the breath and subtle energy systems.

Anne has taught yoga full time for sixteen years (since 2002)  including group yoga classes, private yoga sessions,  teacher training/continuing education and workshops.

Anne receives private clients at her current location–Karuna Arts Yoga, 2108 SW 152nd Street, Burien, Washington–and may be available for offsite workshops and events.
