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.

Brush up on the basics
Refine your practice with fewer poses and more instruction. Each week, you'll learn about one of the key principles of yoga and how to apply them to a simple sequence of postures. If you've never done yoga before, then this is the class for you.

Breathing
You'll become more aware of how you breath and learn the calm steady breath used in yoga. You'll practice pairing movement with the breath and begin to allow the breath to guide your yoga practice.

Alignment
You'll learn how to become aware of how your body is positioned and general principles of how to bring it into better alignment so that you'll be able to apply them to any pose you encounter.

Edges
You'll learn how to tune into the sensations in your body and use these as cues to help your practice. You'll find greater ease and strength within each pose and have fun playing your edges.
