Anne Ryan, E-RYT, C-IAYT, R.A.H.P.
Anne has spent many years working towards professional certification in the newly minted field of yoga therapy. She has recently been awarded the designation of C-IAYT, certified Yoga Therapist (800 hour).
Anne Ryan received her yoga teacher training through Namaste International and is a registered yoga teacher (500hr) with Yoga Alliance. She brings twenty years of experience in yoga and dance and the wisdom of her professional practice in aromatherapy, reiki and acupuncture to her teaching. Her study of Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT 500hr) with Joseph and Lilian Le Page has deepened her commitment to teaching as a path to health and well-being, providing tools to help everyone live a more complete and balanced life.
Anne’s interest in complementary health care started with a strong interest in maintaining her own health with as little intervention as possible. While working in a health food store in her early twenties, Anne’s interest in the healing properties of plants blossomed and she began to study aromatherapy. She shortly set up practice as an aromatherapist and found she enjoyed working with clients, helping to expand their knowledge base. In seeing the growth of her clients Anne was compelled to embark on expanding her own education as well. She chose to pursue the energy modalities of reiki and acupuncture. Yoga and an active interest in Ayurvedic medicine have come to provide a container to hold all of these modalities. Over the last fifteen years Anne has developed a thriving practice at The Yellow House compromised of group yoga classes, individual therapeutically based yoga sessions and wellness counseling, incorporating all of her healing modalities. She looks forward to the challenge of expanding her scope to include Inner Quiet Yoga. Anne continues to actively pursue her education in yoga and healing arts and is always expanding on her healing philosophy.
Anne is a Professional Yoga Therapist, Registered Yoga Teacher, Certified Aromatherapist, Certified Acupuncturist, is a Reiki Master and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance.
