As a young teenager, Anne found yoga when she used it to help her heal from a stress fracture in her lower back. She has been hooked ever since!
Anne grew up around sports and began playing professional tennis at the age of 16 where she competed in WTA and Grand Slam events. She visited studios throughout the country and around the world (turns out yoga is the same in Japan and France!) and credits yoga with helping her stay injury free for the years she pounded her body on the courts.
Upon retirement, Anne continued her yoga practice and continued to challenge herself by competing in triathlons and even an Ironman. She also enjoyed teaching tennis and loved the connection she formed with her students and the growth she was able to witness over time. It was this sense of mentorship and community that inspired Anne to pursue teaching yoga.
Although she continued to practice for the physical workouts, it wasn’t until Anne found Radiant that she dove deeper into the mental and spiritual side of the practice. She realizes that some days, it’s not about the workout, but more about the work-in.
Outside of the studio, Anne holds an MBA from Wharton and works in corporate finance. She enjoys cycling, running, paddle boarding, baking and playing the piano (poorly, she says)! She received her 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training certificate through Radiant Hot Yoga in Spring 2015.
