Anne Cox E-RYT 500
Anne began her yoga journey in 1997 to manage back pain and chronic headaches. Starting with restorative yoga classes, she found that the simplest poses could be the most profound. Her philosophy comes from a place of “beginners mind, and a way to be in the moment and explore for oneself how to heal in body, mind and spirit. Anne was certified as a Yoga teacher in 2004 and completed further training with specialized instructors such as Susi Hately, Gert van Leeuwen, Richard Miller and Trevor Yelich, to name a few. Her specialty is Yoga Therapy, working with physical and emotional stresses caused by illness, injury and the pressures of everyday life. Her intention is to help inspire her students to help themselves.
Using mindful movement, breath, sound, tuning forks and mediation, Anne helps students to uncover not only a healthy body, but find a place of peace from within. She assists her students to build strength from the inside out and release tension from the outside in, leaving with new tools to take into their daily lives.
