New Yoga Instructor

Annie Siegel is a native Clevelander who has been immersed in the local yoga community for the past 17 years. She has been a dedicated student of yoga since the late 1990's and a certified yoga teacher since 2005. Most recently, Annie helped to develop curriculum and lead 200 hour yoga teacher trainings locally. 

Like many, Annie's yoga practice began as just another way to exercise. Always athletic and active, Annie was constantly on the lookout for the next great workout. What she found in yoga was so much more than a physical challenge. Annie had always been attuned to the mind/body connection and once she delved into her own yoga practice, she immediately knew it was something she wanted to share with others. Now, almost 20 years later, while she still enjoys a good physical challenge, what has become more important to her practice is the insight and truths that reveal themselves when she comes to her mat. Her practice has become more about letting go of the daily distractions and tuning in with what really matters.


Annie hopes to inspire others to integrate yoga, meditation and relaxation into their daily lives. Her teaching style is slow in pace with thoughtful sequencing. Over the years, Annie's yoga students have come to her classes for precise alignment cues, moderate pacing, inspiring music and nurturing hands-on adjustments. Annie's class is taught with the intention to help people quiet their mind and body so that they can listen to their heart. Each class is different, each is a new experience, and each is a journey. 

Annie continues to be inspired by her local yoga teachers and aspires to dig deeper into her personal yoga practice and teaching. She continues to seek out more opportunities to enrich her practice with meditation and yin yoga practices. Her teaching is most inspired by the sensible approach of Jason Crandell's vinyasa yoga, the breath work and life lessons of Max Strom and the foundation laid by Cyndi Lee's Om Yoga training program.

 In addition to yoga, Annie also offers Thai Yoga Massage. Thai massage is a soothing blend of gentle stretching, rhythmic rocking, and acupressure. The meditative qualities induced by the gentle rocking and massage encourage deep relaxation which allows the practitioner to move the client into deeper postures and stretches. Annie enjoys this meditative, relaxing and nurturing form of energy work and hopes to introduce the many benefits of this practice to those around her.
