Ani strives to create an inclusive space for all bodies: a place to take the practice seriously, but not necessarily ourselves. She's always looking for creative ways to challenge and support her students, whether it's with blocks, blankets, or a gentle reminder to relax those grimaces while in chair pose. In Ani's classes you can expect detailed instruction, inventive core work, and playful transitions from pose to pose. Above all, it is her hope that students will leave class feeling a bit more at home in their bodies.
With a background in childcare and literature, Ani believes a great yoga class has all the elements of a great bedtime story: a knowledgable guide, a different journey ever time, and ultimately, a resting pose.

- Introducing twists, some backbends, approachable inversions, be prepared to explore both beginning and intermediate poses. Modifications are given allowing the students to choose a more beginning or more advanced practice according to their needs.
Since this class involves a strength work and a faster pace, its best if you are already comfortable practicing sun salutations and have an intermediate level of fitness.
