About the instructor: Annie James
“By title, I am a RN, certified counselor & coach and yoga teacher based in the Pacific Northwest. By passion, I am a student of yoga on and off my mat with the intention to support physical and mental healing in others.
I was introduced to traditional yoga as a child. My first official class I remember vividly at age 12. The teacher was kind and welcomed me as the youngest student. My pre-teen anxiety, which was a constant, lifted with synchronized breath to movement.
I grew up in competitive sports, and nurtured a mentality of perfection. Yoga plays an important role my life, allowing me to fully recognize my body and how to move with attention to breath vs. disconnect. During my 20’s I explored various styles of yoga while continuing my love for fitness and sports. I dove deeper into Hatha & Ashtanga Yoga, living for a year at Mount Madonna Center, a retreat center dedicated to living the 8 limb path.
At age 24 I began my nursing career and the grind of switch shifts, long hours and I found myself very disconnected from my body. Eventually I started working as an Oncology RN where I reconnected to yoga. I still love to play my edge in my practice but with an awareness of deeper work and integration what I have learned over the years.”
