Ann Pizer began doing yoga in 2002 as an antidote to the stress of living in post 9/11 New York City. Though she was neither particularly flexible nor fond of group exercise, she quickly found herself hooked and has been sustained by her practice ever since.
Ann became a registered yoga teacher in 2004 upon the completion of a 200-hour teacher-training course at Atmananda Yoga in New York. She also trained in prenatal yoga at YogaWorks. She has taught vinyasa/flow and prenatal yoga classes and had written about yoga for over ten years. She also writes the yoga advice column Ask Aunt Yoga.
Ann holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in art history and archaeology from Tufts University and a Master of Fine Arts in studio art from the University of Texas at Austin.
Yoga is a practice that is adaptable to any personality and level of physical fitness, but newcomers often feel intimidated by the unfamiliar terminology (such as the use of Sanskrit names of poses) and conventions (such as taking off your shoes before entering a yoga studio). I want to give you the information you need to find an appropriate yoga class and the confidence to give it a try so that everyone can enjoy the health benefits and well-being that comes from a regular yoga practice.
