Anna Hughes

When Anna Hughes first started studying yoga in college, it seemed a natural progression from the dance she studied and adored for the first eighteen years of her life. Anna completed her 500-hour Bikram teacher training in 2002, and began teaching full time immediately. Since that time, Anna has explored Ashtanga Yoga extensively, studying with the wonderful David Swenson as well as Todd Roderick, one of the Southeast’s most renowned Ashtanga Yoga instructors. It was in 2003 when she began studying Bhakti Flow with Rusty Wells that she was truly introduced to the idea of integrating the physical and spiritual practices of yoga and her teaching has evolved to embrace this concept.Anna’s study of various systems of yoga has led her to a greater understanding of yoga as a whole. In her own teaching, she emphasizes a connection with the breath as well as mindfulness, contentment and a healthy sense of humor. Her experience with yoga has inspired her to infuse her teaching with the idea of finding joy in one’s practice while challenging the body, mind, and spirit. Her vinyasa classes are vigorous and playful, creatively sequenced, and always include a great soundtrack.

The more I practice and teach yoga, the more I realize that this ancient art and science really is about a lot more than just pretty poses and a healthy body. These things reel us in, but they are just the first steps toward a clearer mind and a more balanced life. When I started my yoga practice ten years ago, I was at a crossroads in my life. I was burned out from my career, uncertain about the relationship I was in, and had gained twenty pounds from a decade without exercise. I was very unhappy with the direction I was headed.

One day, on a whim, I walked into a yoga studio, and before I realized what was going on, I had signed up for “10 classes in 10 days”. That first class kicked my butt so badly that I actually left before it was over, and vowed never to return. But over the next few days, a strange thing happened. I felt relaxed and cleansed for the first time in longer than I could remember. Plus, I had already paid for the whole ten days. I decided to go back. After surviving the second class, I was hooked. I went on to tell everyone how yoga was changing my life”! Now, being on the mat is almost a daily ritual for me. Yoga is where I find refuge, discipline, a sense of balance, and a connection with my deeper self. And being part of a loving yoga community is just as important. Sound familiar? My story is like so many others. It’s not a cliche, but a universal experience that so many of us have. Yoga finds us when we don’t know where else to turn, and brings us back to a vibrant, meaningful life. I started teaching in 2002, and my hope is to facilitate others on their own yoga journeys. See you in class.

Lindsay Foreman

Lindsay comes from a background of playing competitive sports of soccer, snowboarding and rock climbing which focused on cross training in ways of only developing strength but not balancing the body with increased flexibility. She was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga as another way to get a workout. Even though her tight hamstrings barely allowed her to touch her toes, she was inspired by the physical and mental transformation that was created through linking movement with conscious breath. At first Lindsay gravitated to the structured and disciplined practice of ashtanga yoga, but as her relationship with yoga deepened she was then drawn to the more creative fluid practice of Power Vinyasa Flow which elevated her into a dance of bliss with the breath and movement.
For Lindsay, yoga became a way of life as she resonated with the holistic view that our thoughts and actions as both individuals and as a community are innately intertwined physically and energetically to all living beings, the earth and the universe.

She journeyed through India practicing yoga in the Himalayas which lead her to Bali where she completed her 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training in 2012 with internationally renowned teachers with the School of Sacred Arts.

Since her first experience on the mat as a student, Lindsay continues to values breath as the primary part of the yoga practice and through her teaching she inspires her students to connect to power in the expansion and release one receives through pranayama ujaii breath.

Her class is built on a unique combination of maintaining roots in ashtanga yoga while adding a more creative intuitive power flow that builds upon strength, alignment, flexibility and balance that challenges students to play with their edge.

Wah!

LESS STRESS MORE WAH! is a bumper sticker her fans made. It sums up what people are feeling about Wah! and her music, books, and lectures. After 20 years touring and performing throughout the world, she wants to get at the root of helping people relax and destress.

First, the music. If you’ve been in a yoga class in the last five years, you have no doubt heard her music. The first female to bring kirtan music [call-and-response chanting performed in India's devotional traditions] to the West in the 1990’s, Wah! has been playing bass guitar with her wildly joyful rock band at yoga festivals and centers around the U.S. since 1997. She has also consistently offered music and albums to the therapeutic market; her Savasana CDs have sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.

A few years ago Wah! took time to sit with people – just sitting, and singing, toning, and leading simple meditative exercises. This, combined with many years leading yoga and creating relaxation music led to healing workshops, healing retreats and the Healing Concert, a multi-media concert using projections, slow moving laser lights and live music by Wah! to inspire world peace and peace within.

“Our lives are filled with distractions and disruptions that take us away from ourselves and leave us with an experience of overwhelming stress and disconnection." Wah! feels a new kind of musical experience is necessary. “I want to improve how we live our lives on this planet and create events which inspire peace and altruistic cooperation.” She has performed at Fiske Planetarium, Franklin Institute, South Florida Museum's Bishop Planetarium, Omega Institute, Globe Sound Healing Conference, NJ State Museum in Trenton, Hoyt Sherman Place, and Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. In concerts, festivals, lectures and workshops, Wah! uses her deep understanding of music and healing to create profound and transformative events.
