Annie Lawrence has been teaching yoga since 2010. She began a regular yoga practice while living in Bolivia in 2007 during her Peace Corps service. Her yoga practice allowed her to both stay centered and connect with others, just as it does today. She completed an Alignment Based Vinyasa teacher training at the Yoga Union Community Wellness Center in Portland, Oregon. She is also a certified Next Generation Yoga Teacher for kids ages 8 – 13.
Annie also holds a Masters of Science Teaching degree, teaches 7th and 8th grade science, and has worked in environmental education.
She finds that the same principles hold true for both yoga and science instruction: be authentic, put students and relationships first, and work hard without taking yourself too seriously. Annie teaches classes with an emphasis on mindfulness, body-mind-heart connection, and elements of dance and creative movement. When not busy teaching, Annie loves exploring the great outdoors and spending time with loved ones.
