Hi! I'm Ann Carroll and I am based in Savannah Georgia. I started practicing Integral Hatha Yoga® in the early 90’s as a way to combat stress in my job as a corporate lender and in my personal life. After realizing the astounding benefits relating to stress and the workplace, I decided to dive deeper and attended a four week live-in teacher training at the Satchidananda Ashram near Charlottesville, Virginia in 2000. Once that program was completed, I was hooked and started sharing the gift of yoga anywhere I could find to teach!
In 2001 I attended another two-week teacher training at the same facility specifically addressing bringing yoga into an office or boardroom setting. Subsequent trainings at The Kripalu Institute and the Ashville Yoga Center prepared me to teach Pregnancy Yoga. It is such an honor to teach pregnant and postnatal women -- the benefit to them is so tangible! That led me to become certified to teach childbirth education and to become a birth doula. I've helped more than 150 babies into the world!
All of my classes are suitable for people of all ages, physical abilities and walks of life. I am an Experienced 500-Level Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance, an 85 hour Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance, a member of the Integral Yoga Teachers Association and founder and member of The Savannah Area Teachers of Yoga Association (SATYA). I've been participating as a lead teacher in a 200-hour program since 2006 and lead Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training Programs around the US.
