Anne Marie Gordon

Studio Director and Yoga Teacher
 
My interests in moving meditation practices began with Tai-Chi at 19. Since then, I’ve immersed myself in the study of self-realisation and yoga as a way to heal myself mentally and physically. These practices have made a remarkable difference in my life, and the experience continues to help me grow each day.

 

Growing up with a fast-paced, constant-driving, coffee-drinking, standard New York diet and lifestyle kept me frazzled and depressed. Finding the discipline of yoga was the perfect calling to bring energizing activity, compassionate thinking, and spiritual vitality back to my life.

 

In 2011, I completed my Hot Yoga training at Yoga Oasis, N.Y., moved to Sheffield with new goals and challenges, and began manifesting my ideal of studying with Sri Dharma Mittra.  
 
Now, I am grateful to have completed the 500hr Life of a Yogi training with him and the skilled teachers at the Dharma Yoga Center.  This training solidified my understanding of the practice, and continues to be the foundation on which I live my life.  
 
Every day, I continue to pursue my interests in yogic philosophy, nutritional vegan eating, being positively active, actively calm, and living according to the Yoga Sutras.

 

I’m excited to share the wisdom learned from various teachers and yoga styles to bring consciousness and gratitude everywhere.

Go with the flow
This is a dynamic class that focuses on moving with the breath bringing fluidity back into the body. The poses aren't held for as long and greater emphasis is placed on the transitions between the poses. If you've done hot yoga before, this class is similar to other flowing styles such as Baptiste, Power or Ashtanga.

 The 90 min class requires a steady sustained effort that most people will find challenging.
