Teachers

A transplant from France, Anne Barbaret made the San Francisco Bay Area her home in 1995.

She got her teaching credentials from the Iyengar Institute of San Francisco, the oldest Iyengar teacher-training program in the United States; she is now a certified teacher, Intermediate Junior 1.

At a personal level, Anne finds Yoga to be an inspiring and transformative practice that brings physical, psychological and emotional balance. Yoga takes you on a path of self discovery that goes well beyond the mat bringing awareness and a new appreciation for all aspects of life!

Annetta is a multifaceted yoga teacher (E RYT 200, YogaWorks RYT 500) with over 1000 hours of training and multiple certifications in a variety of styles of yoga. She specializes in alignment based Vinyasa Flow, Gentle yoga, Yin yoga and Restorative yoga. She began practicing yoga in 1999, after some years away from the ballet barre, and she was immediately hooked due to the grounding, healing and transformative effect yoga had upon her. Throughout her yoga journey she has studied and practiced: Bikram, Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative yoga, in studios, workshops and colleges around Northern California. 



Annetta's private, corporate, public classes and workshops are fun, educational, intuitive, thoughtfully sequenced and well balanced. She emphasizes breath and alignment to encourage students to develop a safe, sustainable and transformative practice. She teaches challenging Vinyasa flow, healing Hatha, nourishing Restorative & Yin yoga classes to all levels and ages. Her teaching is inspired by her own therapeutic practice, which she uses to build energy and restore balance. 



Her goal as a teacher is to SEE her students and perceive and teach what they really need. Yoga is much more than just exercise (asana) to Annetta. It is a complete lifestyle, that includes all 8 limbs, which lead her daily to greater self-love, awareness, health, happiness, peace, and bliss.

April’s teachings encourage students to unravel the connections between conscious movement, intention, and philosophy and embrace yoga as a way of life. In each class, April offers an experience that balances individual attention with collective energy, a combination that inspires students to discover their unique, innate potential and incorporate that into their everyday lives.

With a background spanning martial arts, field hockey, water and winter sports, Arlynn promotes a holistic relationship with movement in her practice and instruction.

Calley Bliss (Yoga Alliance RYT-200) teaches yoga with the approach that the science of the mind is intrinsically connected to the state of the body. Learning, and re-patterning that state is often an emotional journey by way of a physical practice. The practice is always a practical tool to combat life’s challenges, and find opportunity for growth, health, and progress for your body, mind, and life.
