Annemarie is a certified IYENGAR yoga teacher. She has been practicing yoga since 1994 when she first arrived in the UK from New York, and luckily happened upon the Iyengar method in 1997 when she moved to Bristol. She has been studied at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India and has also studied with the Iyengar family in the UK.
Annemarie is particularly interested in the mind and body connection of yoga: ‘Yoga asks you to draw on physical strength, as well as discipline, tolerance and persistence, to see that it isn’t just about the exercise, but about who you are at that moment. It has challenged my patience and tenacity as well as calmed and comforted.’
