ERYT-500 | Yoga instructor
Ann started her professional career as a dancer in NYC and went on to perform as a Professional Dancer/Singer all over the world. She was a Radio City Rockette who toured over 77 cities in the US and at Radio City in NYC. She danced with Liza Minelli at Carnegie Hall for the Great Performance series on PBS. She was lucky enough to follow her dreams and passion and see the world while doing it.
Her whole life changed when she injured her hip and had to end her dance career. She ended up having a hip replacement and while recovering from the surgery decided to try hot yoga. Her yoga practice and her hip became stronger every day.She decided to get trained in Hot Yoga and ran her own studio for 15 years where she could introduce both hot yoga, vinyasa, ballet, and children's yoga. Ann had both hips replaced and practices yoga every day. She has been teaching dance for over 30 years and yoga for almost 20 years. Ann's extensive dance background gave her such great discipline and focus. She continues to inspire all her students to reach new levels in their yoga practice everyday.
She holds hot yoga teacher trainings each year for devoted yoga students to become Hot Yoga/ Vinyasa Flow teachers under the Yoga Alliance 200 and 300-hour certification program with the help of her sister, Kathleen Yocum- a licensed acupuncturist in NYC for over 20 years.
Ann continues to practice herself everyday and has been dancing, doing yoga and practicing for over many years both on and off the mat and helping people to recover from injuries and isuues of all kinds.
Mission Statement- I hope to introduce my yoga series to as many people as possible and I hope that they feel the healing aspects of yoga in mind, body, and spirit.
