AnneMarie Stenger

200 RYT Yoga Instructor

I took my first yoga class in my late twenties, and while it was challenging, I was hooked. I felt lighter, happier and peaceful. Slowly and steadily, I incorporated yoga more and more into my life. My practice has taught me different things throughout different periods of my life, perhaps most importantly, to be kind to myself and not to take myself so seriously. It has continued to teach me about my own strength, working through challenges and playing with my edge. I watch myself grow and I am confronted with my ego on a regular basis. I have met my best possible self on the mat and also found great tenderness.

Maintaining a connection to my mind, body and spirit has served me in a profound way that brings me back to my mat over and over again. I enjoy practicing at different studios, experiencing different styles as well as going on retreat at ashrams. In addition to being a yoga teacher, I am also a reiki practitioner. I have a great love of spending time with my family and friends, and the arts and nature particularly lift my heart and make me smile.

Why I love teaching yoga: My practice is very precious to me and I appreciate the opportunity to share yoga with others.

Fun Fact: I made a dress out of glass and wore it in a fashion show.
