Annabelle Teleki, E-RYT-500
Annabelle’s classes incorporate the traditions of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vini Yoga, with a focus on mindful flow, as well as holding poses for longer periods of time, creating sustainable strength and deeper stillness. Annabelle brings a lifetime of travel and spiritual awareness to her practice and teaching. Expect to move with synchronized breath from one pose to another, movements are slow and mindful, allowing for pause and depth. Students are encouraged to delve deeper into the many teachings through Asana, Meditation, Pranayama and Mantra. Annabelle has studied with many teachers. She is especially grateful to Seane Corn, Nikki Myers, Janet Stone, Hala Khouri and Michelle Cordero for sharing their gifts, and for their solid guidance along this path.
