Annie Carpenter's teaching has evolved into an intelligent, organic SmartFLOW, reflecting her love of movement and rigorous discipline. Having studied anatomy, kinesiology, and developmental movement as a dancer, her classes are informed by the body's structure and evolution; having great passion for creativity and metaphor, Annie loves to play with sequencing in order to take her students into a deeper understanding of a pose, and of themselves. She believes that focusing on alignment is not just safe, but provides "points of dharana" or gateways to inner stillness and meditation.
Known as a "teachers' teacher," Annie teaches all levels of asana classes, mentors young teachers, leads workshops and retreats as well as Teacher Trainings. Annie has a playful spirit and encourages a balance between working hard, and a light, joyful exploration into one's own practice, into the awareness of one's true nature.
