Annie Jacob is a Certified Anusara® Teacher, E-RYT500, YACEP, 5 Rhythms® Space Holder and the owner of The YogaTonic. She is presently pursuing her Certification in Para® Yoga and continuing her education in Ayurveda. Annie shines in the area of helping her students overcome injury and pain in the physical body with her in-depth knowledge of alignment as well as supporting students through subtle body awareness to find a state of mental and emotional balance through breath practices, meditation and other yogic techniques. The tools of yoga have helped her personally navigate difficult life experiences, gain appreciation for her body and life and help her grow spiritually. In turn, she enjoys holding space for others to move through a process of self discovery and healing as they connect to their authentic nature and the source of power and peace within. Annie opened the YogaTonic in 2006 with a vision to build a Community Based Studio. She teaches public classes, private yoga instruction, teacher training and offers workshops and retreats. Annie’s classes are supportive, fun and enlivening. As a business owner, mother and artist, Annie draws from her personal life to help students find balance, creativity and possibility both on and off their mats.
