Yoga has become tremendously popular over the past years, which shows the increased need to de-stress. As a result of this, new teachers, studios and teacher training programs appear faster than we can pronounce the word ‘yoga’. Yoga truly is an inner journey; where we leave behind the chaotic sensory overload to find our own quiet place within, and re-connect to who we really are when all conditioning has been taken away. It is about creating an honest and loving relationship with ourselves, so we can be happier in our daily lives. Only when you begin to know and love your Self, your inner and outer world can change for the better.
“Yoga is not about Self-improvement. It is about Self-acceptance.â€ť
The name AS I AM YOGA was specifically chosen so we realise that our outer appearances and abilities, as well as our background are irrelevant when we meet ourselves on our yoga mat. Ann is the founder of As I Am Yoga and she remains true to the authentic yoga teachings and this shows in every class she teaches. Ann has a strong sense of what is needed by each individual and will always adapt any posture to meet the studentsâ€™ needs, so that EVERYONE, from the beginner to the experienced flexi-bendy, can get most benefits from every class.
AS I AM YOGA is a small, stunning yoga studio in Pinelands. Small classes allow for personal attention and insight into onesâ€™ individual needs.
There are also regular health and happiness inspiring workshops, with well-chosen experts in their topic.
Mats and other props are provided free of charge, as well as filtered water and herbal tea.
