I loved this class. I used to take Annie's classes in Venice quite a few years ago but can no longer make the drive to Venice. This site is an excellent alternative and I'm ecstatic to find it. Natarajasana used to be my favorite pose so I am particularly happy with this class. I'm an older student in my 60's and this class really helps open my shoulders and hips. Annie is such an excellent teacher. I'm delighted to be able to take her classes again without driving anywhere.

I was really happy to see a class focusing on shoulders--they are my most challenging area. I love this instructor and all the technique and expertise she brings to her teaching!! She really awesome. I live in a rural part of Utah, so getting quality yoga instruction is difficult to come by. So glad for this site!
