Anna’s classes have a wonderful balance of meditation, stretching, and movement. The mental aspects of the practice are touched on during every class, and there’s a good mix of static and active movement so that your body’s trouble spots get attention in multiple ways. I also like how the focus isn’t on an end goal, but rather making the practice your own by encouraging you to tap into your own intuition and following what’s best for you.
I am a 71 year old male who has been physically active my entire life, doing several activities such as jogging, biking, gym workouts on various machines, etc. My wife has been doing yoga for several years and periodically tried to get me to join her. I resisted, thinking the usual male attitudes toward the activity; its for ladies, it’s not as good a workout compared to mine, and so on.
Anna’s practice is a whole mind, body and heart experience. The way she incorporates strength building into her classes makes me feel like I am in good hands! And the singing bowls that end every class are a beautiful and unique experience that always leave me feeling grounded and calm.
