About the instructor: Anamaria Baralt
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.” – B.K.S. Iyengar
It is difficult to put into words the gifts that yoga has given me. My practice has spanned two decades and in those two decades my life has changed dramatically; yoga has been there supporting me each step of the way.
I have had the great honor and opportunity to take advanced training with some of the most accomplished Ashtangis, all having studied personally with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, including: Annie Carpenter (creator of SMART Flow®), meditation with Richard Freeman (author of The Mirror of Yoga and co-author of The Art of Vinyasa), and hands-on assisting with both Maty Ezraty and Troy Lucero. I have also had the opportunity for advanced workshops for back bending and hip/sacrum health with Amy Ippoliti and back bending with Carmen Aguilar. Most recently, I had the opportunity to attend a 3-day intensive training with David Swenson, author of Ashtanga Yoga, The Practice Manual. Additionally, I have taken and taught many workshops on arm balancing and handstands. There is nothing I find more rewarding that sharing the great gifts of yoga with others and facilitating their journey.
Recently, I have felt called to expand my training to become a Certified Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I could say that this is out of my comfort zone, but I’d be lying. For an athlete like me, this feels like coming home. I’ve been a gym rat since I was twelve years old. I have always loved strength training and nutrition. I love to help people – especially women – feel strong and healthy. I am constantly saying to my students and clients, “You’re so much stronger than you think.” I’m proven right every day!
When I’m not on the mat or in the gym, I’m working as a web designer and doing my favorite thing in the world: spending time with my husband, Wayne, our two sons, Zach and Cole, and our dog, Cinnamon.
