My education and teaching

Thank you for your interest in my home studio and approach to teaching.  I believe in a therapeutic, orthopedic, anatomy-based approach to movement in the body.  My love for yoga started in 2001 and following my path to teaching, became a certified 200RYT in 2005 from the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA through the amazing teachings of Ganga White and Tracey Rich.  Not long after receiving my yoga certification I was introduced to the Pilates method.  I realized the synergetic relationship Yoga and Pilates could offer to truly connect the body to mindful movement.  I then pursued my Pilates training and received my Reformer I, II, III certification through Balanced Body University.  After becoming a mother in 2010, I received my children's yoga certification in San Francisco, CA so I could give my daughters and other children the gift of yoga in their lives.  I'm always continuing my education and am most recently working on my 500RYT through Yoga Medicine.  I am continuing this journey expanding my depth of knowledge and working closely with healthcare practitioners to provide yoga and Pilates as medicine for both the body and mind.  

In my home studio space I teach private and semi-private classes designed specifically for students and their individual needs.  I also teach community workshops to share my approach to movement.  If you're interested in my work please contact me by email at woodsannie@gmail.com.
