Anne Oliver was first introduced to yoga over 30 years ago at the
Sivananda Yoga Center in San Francisco. Her practice soon became a
passion which sustained her through life's challenges of raising a family,
facing cancer and healing from the treatments, as well as developing a
meaningful career in the non-profit sector in Marin.
In 2008, Anne became certified as an Integrative Yoga Therapy teacher.
She has taught ever since in various venues, including studios in
Petaluma and Bodega Bay, and for her co-workers at the Marin
Humane Society. In 2012, Anne received a Somatic Yoga Therapy
certificate from Janice Gates in San Anselmo. That same year she
received her "Yoga 4cancer" teaching certificate from Tari Prinster of
New York. For two years, Anne taught a yoga class specifically for
people dealing with cancer, from diagnosis and treatment to healing.
In the past 5 years, Anne has attended several silent meditation
retreats at Spirit Rock as well as participated in day-long workshops on
meditation, poetry, and chi gong. In addition to the Somatic Yoga
Therapy training, she has been a student of Janice Gates weekly yoga
classes, participated in women's yoga and meditation circles, day-long
retreats at Green Gulch as well as small mentoring groups with Janice.
Anne also taught yoga at several retreats for the nuns of the Aloka
Vihara Forest Monastery.
Anne blends all elements of her yoga trainings with her love of nature,
poetry, tai chi, chi gong and meditation to create a unique and mindful
experience for the students in her classes.
