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.

Yoga permeates every part of Christie’s life. She believes that yoga is accessible to every individual; the mind is what holds us back from recognizing our highest potential, not tight hamstrings, hips, or shoulders. She originally started a regular yoga practice in 1997 with the intention of creating more stability and balance in her body after her first foot surgery, and has since dabbled in various forms of yoga that have all influenced her teaching style, including Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa, and Yin Yoga. Christie’s class is challenging, playful and supportive, approachable for all levels. It is a grounding, energetic and powerful Vinyasa flow designed to open the physical body and deepen mental awareness, awakening the spirit. Christie works to offer intelligent sequencing that supports students in getting the maximum benefit from the movement.

Christie is a lifelong educator serving diverse fields with a Master’s degree in Education and Human Development. She has over 400 hours of training with such inspiring mentors as Baron Baptiste, Patty Ivey, Sarah Powers, and Rusty Wells. Christie is excited to share her passion for yoga, guiding yoga practitioners to a deeper understanding of asana, breath, mindfulness and conscious movement.

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.
