What are people saying about Ann Marie's Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes?
"Ann Marie has been teaching Yoga Class for the Defense Supply
Center Richmond since May of 2004. Within the first month her class
size doubled, and we quickly realized we needed to make some changes
and plan for an additional class to offer our community. Ann Marie is
a very vibrant, vivacious young woman who has thoroughly enjoyed enlightening
our employees and military about the benefits of Yoga. I continue to
get very positive comments about the Vinyasa Flow Yoga Classes she instructs,
in fact, many folks have already begun to see the changes in their bodies
since they started Yoga with Ann Marie."
Laurie O’Brien, Health & Fitness Director
"At our hospital we believe in the health benefits of Yoga and are commited to providing classes for the staff and community.
The first time we took a class from Ann Marie, we thought..."Wow, this is different!"....and that was probably for three main reasons. The first is the care and attention that Ann Marie paid to the varying abilities of class participants. Each individual received hands on encouragement and support. The second was her depth of knowledge of the human body and her enthusiam in educatiing her pupils and third was her own level of practice. This lady knows what she is doing and will go far in her career".
Penny Shaver, PT. Director of Rehab Services, John Randolph Medical Center
"Ann Marie is the inspiration behind my newly
found love for yoga. In less than 2 months of practice I am less anxious,
more focused and generally happier. The physical gains speak volumes
too; greater flexibility, stamina, stronger leaner muscles, and best
of all, no more neck and back pain! Ann Marie's knowledge, professionalism,
and dedication and genuine nature make her a yoga student's delight!
"Some people are born with a natural gift. Ann Marie is one
of those individuals. She is a natural born teacher who beautifully
shares her knowledge of yoga. She manages to make each person in her
class feel like they're the only one in the room, while maintaining
a connection with everyone at once. She is completely lacking in judgment
or ego when she teaches. Through her teachings, I have learned how to
truly make my yoga practice my own. By allowing myself to let go and
directing my focus inward, rather then outward, my practice has greatly
improved both physically and mentally."
"Unhappy with my physical shape after two children, I decided to pursue regular physical activity. While experimenting with different forms of group exercise I came to know Ann Marie. One day I overheard a conversation between Ann Marie and a class participant seeking weight loss advice. I heard her say if you do yoga 3 times a week, even gentle yoga, along with cardio, you should see results. I followed that advice and lost 35 lbs. A year ago I was 167 lbs and wore a size 16. Now I wear a size 8 and weigh 130 lbs. Amazed that I reached my goal without dieting, I am still gradually losing weight. I get sick less than I used to and have more energy. Not only am I happy with my physical self, my mind has reaped benefits as well. The knowledge of yoga possessed by Ann Marie makes her class a favored experience."
"Since meeting Ann Marie, I have come to know the true meaning of practicing yoga. Not only has she helped me physically, but she also inspires you to take hold of the mental and spiritual benefits from practicing."
"For me, Ann Marie and yoga are synonymous. I met her 12 lessons ago and the
stress- reducing/ health- enhancing benefits of yoga have since changed my
life. As an athlete, I have always been aware of the importance of
stretching, but yoga has opened my world to the concept of utilizing
breathing to stretch the limits of flexibility, strength and balance while
encouraging meditative relaxation. As a result my paradigm for physical and
mental conditioning has profoundly evolved. I have Ann Marie to thank! She
is the consummate professional- personable, knowledgeable, and dedicated. I
highly recommend checking her out."
