Yoga

As a dancer with back pain, Anne first saw yoga as a marvelous physical exercise that left her body feeling open in ways she had never experienced.

She completed her RYT-200 hour certification through Yoga Bliss/Yoga in the Woods in 2011.

Audrey TesserotAudrey201

Yoga

As a professional actor, dancer, and singer, my body is my instrument. I treat it with love and care, and I seek to help my yoga students do the same. As a yoga teacher, I hope that anyone with any level of knowledge or ability can take my class and leave a happier person seeking to expand their yoga practice. I teach an innovative vinyasa style that strikes a balance between strengthening, challenging sequences and peaceful, restorative practice.

For many years, I attended extremely demanding vinyasa yoga classes while dealing with chronic shoulder pain. Then I began Back Bay Yoga’s teacher training and discovered the wonders that a subtle yoga practice has to offer. I learned more about my body and the healing process than ever before. I believe that the best way to allow the body to heal and become stronger is by finding a balance between challenging the muscles and releasing the tension within the body. That’s why my classes are designed to marry strength and ease on the mat. A well rounded practice makes for a balanced yogi and a balanced lifestyle.

I studied at Back Bay Yoga in Boston, MA (now YogaWorks) and completed Back Bay’s 200-hr teacher training with Lynne Begier, Ryan Cunningham, and Renee LeBlanc.
