“Ann’s yoga teaching is clear, inspiring and insightful. She listens and watches deeply as she teaches and uses that knowledge to help her students. Her years of study and practice shine through in her teaching. She also brings to classes a direct experience with the Iyengar family from repeated trips to Pune, India.”

“Ann West is the yoga teacher for everyone who never thought they could do yoga. From head stands to downward dog, Ann guides you through the physical and metaphysical practice of yoga. A yoga class with Ann will work muscles you never knew you had, sooth aches you had grown accustomed to, and liberate emotions you thought had disappeared forever. I have yet to practice yoga with another instructor who challenges my body and mind on so many levels.”
“Due to rheumatoid arthritis I had terrible pain in the joints of my wrists, fingers, ankles and feet. I was not able to walk barefoot and could barely make a fist, and I was unable to raise my arms above my head. I started attending Ann’s classes twice a week after my diagnosis. With her help I can now move much more much freely and am generally pain free. I can swing a golf club and hike for miles without pain or swelling. I’ve done multi-day hikes and carried a pack. My overall wellbeing and general fatigue is also greatly improved. Thanks Ann for helping me move again.”
“Knowledgeable, committed, and inspiring!”
“Simply the best in therapeutic approach to yoga.”
“High skill level and individual attention. I love the disciplined individualized instruction.”
“I love Ann for her attention to detail on alignment and precision of the Asanas.”
“There is no one that can compete with Ann!! The best classes, the best instructor and the best energy!”

“I am practically pain free since learning your routines. I do them almost every day, at least 5 days a week for 30 to 45 minutes. I can work, and lift, and bike, and hike with much greater confidence and ease. I am not afraid to move anymore. Thanks for your help.”
“When I met Ann, I could barely walk. In fact, I had to be driven to her studio. Chronic back pain coupled with a car accident left me in pain and unable to live a full life. Ann immediately knew how to address my needs and customized an evolving practice that not only improved my immediate condition, but got to the heart of my chronic problems.”
“Your classes have helped me to strengthen, lengthen, and tone my entire body. Your special instructions helped me re-engage and strengthen my core abdominal muscles to LOOK and FEEL like my core muscles again. My back is stronger and my whole body feels better.”
