“I was so grateful to have the opportunity to introduce my partner to yoga after his cancer treatment. Annie tailored her instruction and guidance in such a way that allowed him to explore space with his new body and helped him realize what strengths he still had as well as which areas needed a bit of patience and time to recover. It was a perfect time to become more body conscious and tune in.” ~ Josie ~
“I was recommended to see Annie from my physio in Squamish. I have lots of problems with my S1 joint and lower back. Annie communicated with my physio to make sure she understood my injuries properly. I did a series of privates in Annie’s “home studio”. In only four weeks I could see amazing improvements and I was able to start doing gentle yoga in a class. I feel that most professionals are so rushed when they treat you, 30 min treatment and then they send you home with some exercises that are hard to remember. Annie’s professional approach, patience, and gentle touch are amazing. She will not send you home before you truly understand how to move properly and will answer any questions you have with a smile:) Thank you, Annie, for giving my quality of life back. It’s amazing to wake up in the morning without pain” ~ Maria ~
