Anne Van Valkenburg

Anne started practicing yoga in 1999 and has been teaching at Yoga Works since 2003. She teaches public classes and personal clients in Los Angeles, as well as travels nationally and internationally teaching the Yoga Works 200-Hour and 300-Hour Teacher Training Programs. The heart of her teaching is alignment-based vinyasa taught with thematic sequences that tell a story and that challenge students to slow down. Anne is passionate about teaching the nuts and bolts of the physical practice, as well as weaving in the philosophy of the "Eight Limbs of Yoga" and enjoys creating a space for students where they can define their own meaning of yoga. Anne hopes to inspire students to look beyond the physical and to use the whole practice of yoga as a means to deepen the connection with one's true self. Ultimately yoga teaches us to go inward, and by creating an attitude of santosha, or contentment, we are able to embrace all of the parts of our self and can harmonize with the world around us. We can be grateful for not just one thing, but everything. The practice of yoga teaches us how to live with an open heart and with a willingness to dig deeper.

Why do you feel retreats are transformational

Retreats give you the opportunity to be away from distractions. You can devote the whole retreat to complete self-care. You practice yoga more deeply, you get more sleep, you eat healthy food that you don't have to prepare, you make new friends, you can go exploring, you get spa treatments, and you relax
