Anj Yoga in Words
My beliefs are always shifting and deepening, as with
everything. Right now, this is the ethos that drives
my spiritual practices and my teaching:
Life is fucking hard sometimes. And tragic. And awe-inspiring.
And easy. And outrageous. And insane. And boring.
And beautiful. And mundane. It's everything that it can be,
revealing itself to us in each iteration as the moments unfold.
Yoga allows me to not only craft a strong and open
body/mind/heart so that I might weather life's tides, waves
and tsunamis with ever-growing grace and skill, but it also
invites me to stay awake to what's before me with the widest
of eyes and a great awe and a willingness to take part in it all.
Andrea (mostly called "Anj") has become known for a potent class with a whole lotta soul and a fierce flow. She warmly invites students on a sacred journey through her unique expression of the "cosmic dance" which always asks us to find and cultivate softness in the most challenging places while also discovering and building strength so that we are best supported in all that we do. Her classes incorporate mantras and chanting, philosophy, storytelling, meditation, lots of sighing, essential oils, challenge and space for a personal unfolding.
Above all, Anj is a student, a seeker, committed to her own evolution as a human being, and her own healing. She works to bring her own darkness into the light, and wants to support this in all.
Anj continues to connect an ever-growing well of experience with impressive music and book libraries to inspire bodies to move, minds to focus and hearts to mend. As a professional reader/writer/editor, she works to imbibe her classes with the depth of the teachings.
