SDS, YAA – 800+ & YAA Senior Teacher Training Instructor, YA E-RYT200@, YA YACEP@

Ann has been studying and practicing the many aspects of yoga including hatha since her childhood back in the 60s. In the mid-1970s, she started focusing on mantra and meditation. During the mid-80s, she continued her practice of hatha while taking a minor in dance at the University of Calgary. In the early 90s, she started taking classes with Grace Little (the Grandmother of Yoga in Central Alberta), who led her into the (Yoga Association of Alberta) YAA teacher-training program with senior teacher Maya Margot Balog who expertly taught her the yoga path of self-study.  Since 1994, Ann has had the joy and honour of sharing yoga with students in Red Deer and the surrounding area.  She draws her inspiration from the teachings of the Iyengar, Himalayan and Desichakar traditions.

Since 2002, Ann has been an instructor and board member of YARD (the only non-profit studio in Red Deer). She is YAA Certified, has served on the YAA board of directors from 1995, acts as YAA’s Senior Instructor for the teacher training program (TTP) and since 2011 has sat on the YAA’s TTP committee. She has also served as a mentor for the Himalayan Institute’s teacher training program for several years. In 2017, after 10 years of studying, Ann received her certification in Sanskrit Mantra through Sanatana Dharma Satsang under Namadeva Acharya and Satyabhama.

Ann is ever thankful for blessings of the many great teachers in her life, including her students, her peers and her mother, Dr. Jytte Roy-Poulsen, who brainwashed her with crazy esoteric principles such as “wholistic perspective” and the delight in the quest of “search for self.”
