Some of my most rewarding professional time involves instructing for Teacher Training Programs, and guiding budding teachers on the exciting and transformative journey from student to teacher. I am currently on staff for two Yoga Alliance Registered 200-hour programs in the Bay Area.
Annemaria has been someone I have been learning yoga from since 2010. She's an incredible yoga teacher with a clear, compassionate and confident voice. She aims to challenge her students and I always walk away from her classes having tried something I've never done before. What becomes obvious in her hatha flow/vinyasa classes are her love for detailed anatomy, and her understanding of why it is that anyone would attempt to curl their head under their leg: it's more than just a work-out. She teaches with a smile on her face and it becomes infectious. Go take her class! Like, yesterday!"
"I have followed Annemaria to several studios to attend her classes. Her knowledge of post baby bodies and poses/adjustments to accommodate abdominal separation and other post natal issues make her one of the best instructors in the area for this type of yoga."
When I walk into class and Annemaria is teaching, it's like hitting a jackpot for me. Firstly, she is a warm, genuine person. Her mere presence is grounding, and she is always helpful if I have any questions. Add to that the knowledge and care she brings into the room, and I know I'm in for a treat. She has a magical voice that inspires me through challenging poses and calms on the yin side of things. I find myself smiling often, and after the class sometimes I've learned something about myself, and sometimes I've been so focused the time has flown by and I'm a little surprised it's over. Either way, I leave feeling invigorated and just plain good, ready to continue my day with a serene confidence.
"Annemaria's classes always have a sense of warmth and play as well as grace and elegance as she guides you through your yoga PRACTICE. Her voice is resonant and guides you through your flow and her adjustments are subtle and significant and always given with a keen eye for you as an individual and helping your practice evolve! My FAVORITE yoga teacher!
