MEET ANNA

Hello and thanks for stopping by!


As a mover-of-many-ways, I've spent my lifetime exploring the diversity of exercise.  Enjoying dynamic activities, I've experienced a wealth of benefits for body and mind through movement and physical expression.

Athletics, dance and a 20+ year yoga practice have formed a deep influence in both body awareness and teaching style. I lead all my classes with both factual and intuitive knowledge -- spiced with fun and energy.


With 1400+ hours of combined learning and teaching experience, I encourage my students to feel into their potential, experience their physical and mental strengths and receive the gift of wellness and vitality. 

Come & enjoy a class or more on my Zoom community and receive your dose of dynamic energy! 

 
 

With Anna's guidance in Essentrics, the program helped me to find relief from pain.  The gentle, full-body activity is soothing and releases stress and tension. She is a dedicated 'Healthy Life' advocate who genuinely cares for her clients.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

(And if you have others, please reach out)

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

For most classes I recommend a chair and a yoga mat placed on a smooth surface. As well, let's have water close by to keep our cells happy and refreshed.    

See below for the recommended specifics:

  • Barre: a sturdy chair, small playground ball, light hand weights 

  • Essentrics: a sturdy chair, small towel, (strap or resistance band optional, if hamstrings are tight)

  • Yoga: a strap and block are recommended for all classes (blanket and eye pillow optional). 

  • Somatics and Soothing Stretches: a sturdy chair,  block and blanket (eye pillow optional)

  • Active Ageing: resistance band or tubing, one small, squishy ball (to fit into palm), one medium playground ball, pool noodle, two light hand weights or soup cans. Dollar stores usually have all these props available. 

  • Chair Yoga: strap, block (blanket optional)

WHY WAIVERS?

  • Par-Q  and A-Ha Body & Mind Waiver

  • Both waivers inform me of any health conditions, so that I may tailor and make modifications for your needs during class.

  • They remain active for one year, held in confidentiality, and will be deleted at expiration.

  • Please note: Both must be filled out and returned to me prior to your first class. If you don't have access to a scanner, don't worry--a quik-pic, sent over text or email will do just fine.

HOW DO I 'DO' ZOOM?

  • Zoom can be accessed through the web or on the app, via: your home computer, tablet, phone, or smart tv.  All you'll need is your class Meeting ID and password, which will be issued upon payment.  

  • The link below will give you a bit of a walk-through for how to join the class: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362193-Joining-a-Meeting

  • The class link will be open 10 minutes prior to class.  Feel free to login, chat with the others and get yourself set-up!

  • Please note: All class times are in EST. Click here to convert your timezone.

HOW DO I MAKE UP A CLASS?

  • Missed classes may be made up during the current session and you may choose from any that are offered on the schedule. What a great way to try something new!

HOW DOES PAYMENT FOR CLASSES WORK?

  • A full session pass can be used for the same 10 classes in the September to November session. Any number of these passes may be purchased. When registering, indicate the class and time in your message.

  • Alternatively, the pass can be used for a mix of 10 classes of your choosing. As long as you register you are guaranteed a place in class. A full session pass can be purchased at any time for this purpose. When signing up for a mix of classes, indicate which class, on which date you wish to join.
