with Annie Carlin

I’m glad you’re here.  photo

I want to:

  • Show you how to make the yoga practice work for you, with the body you have now, and do amazing things on the mat.
  • Let you know that yoga is for anybody who is willing to give it a try – yes even you!
  • Teach you how to modify any asana for your body.
  • Help you build strength, endurance, flexibility and confidence that you can take off the mat and into the world.

Please join me for my first Teacher Training Workshop in DC on Sunday, November 16th from 2:00-5:00pm:

Supportive Yoga Pose of the Month: October 2014

Hi everyone!  I hope you are enjoying the beginning of fall!!  I am certainly loving this weather, and, of course, the return of my beloved leg warmers sooner rather than later.  September was a difficult month – much more difficult than I was anticipating....

Supportive Yoga Pose of the Month: September 2014

Happy September everyone!  I can’t believe the summer is slipping away.  The city was so empty in August but it’s pretty clear that everyone is back now!  After an incredibly amazing and busy August (I taught so many classes!!), this month will be a bit...

A Tale of Two Arm Balances

Hi everyone! Before we get down to business here I wanted express my profound respect for and gratitude to the late BKS Iyengar, who left his body a few days ago. Without his insight and wisdom, I literally could not be doing what I am doing. Among his many contributions to modern yoga, Mr. Iyengar pioneered the use of yoga props, making this practice accessible to so many. Though I wasn’t able to study with him directly, many of my teachers did and his teachings have strongly influenced my life and work.

This practice still surprises me

I’m sitting here in a cafe in between my two public yoga classes today thinking about how my yoga practice is constantly shifting and changing. And why that’s a good thing. For the one thing, I suspect that’s at least partially why I’ve been able to stick with yoga for what seems to be forever (but really is about 12 years or so). Practicing yoga can really be a long term relationship – with ups and downs. The advantage, of course, is that no matter how much you neglect yoga, it’ll be there for you when you are ready to pick it up again.
