Anna Koenig, Owner and Yoga Instructor
Anna completed a 200 RYT yoga teacher training at Yoga Garden SF. She turned to yoga when she was a senior at UCLA, nearly a decade ago. As she built a career in finance, she took her practice with her wherever she went. She wanted to combine her business skills with her love for yoga and wellness. She started crafting a plan and opened Addison Yoga Loft in March 2015. Her classes aim to help others feel at home in their own body, and gain mind body awareness. Anna loves to create positive beautiful experiences for others.

Stacy Rohrs, Yoga Instructor
Stacy’s classes relax the body using gentle restorative poses while bringing quieting calmness to the mind through breath work and healing touch.

Having attended classes regularly for over ten years, Stacy relied on yoga as a release from day-to-day stress and part of a fitness regimen. Her practice transformed into a form of self-care while becoming licensed as a therapist working with children and families exposed to trauma. This became a beautiful turning point as she fully realized the therapeutic relief in breathing mindfully and wished to expand this beyond her yoga practice. Stacy completed her yoga teacher certification in San Francisco and has been integrating asanas, mindful breathing, and meditation in her clinical work in the field and on the mat.

Anne Gregory,  Yoga Instructor

Anne began her journey with yoga and meditation in 2008. After relocating from New York City to San Francisco in 2012, she decided to share her passion for yoga with others. She is a certified E-RYT-200 and RYT-500, having completed her 200-hour teacher training at Yoga Tree in San Francisco and her 500-hour teacher training with her teachers Brenna Geehan and Jean Mazzei at Sri Yoga.

 

Anne believes yoga has the power to transform one's life from the inside out, providing students the tools to bring strength and ease into their lives to confidently face whatever life experiences come their way. Her mission as a teacher is to hold space for students to go deeply inward so that they can cultivate a stronger connection to self. Anne believes that through this connection students can find their own unique power and expression of joy within the world. Her classes emphasize mindfulness, alignment and a strong connection to breath in order to build strength, flexibility, and mental clarity.

Hanna Malm, Yoga Instructor
Having  practiced yoga for 15 years before becoming a mother the birth of my first child was the life changing event brought me deeper into yoga, and after the birth of my second child, I  took the Barefoot Movement Yoga Teacher Training. Once I completed my training, I spent a year sailing in Mexico, living on a boat with my partner and two children. During that time, I sought out and found multiple teaching opportunities in different foreign ports, including getting studio time at cruiser clubs and marinas like Club Cruceros in La Paz and Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz. I was lucky enough to be able to do yoga on deserted beaches with my family. I am now an RYT 500 through Yoga Alliance.Teaching yoga allows me to share my experience with the practice: one that connects all aspects of self - body, mind, and breath - and that by connecting to oneself on a deeper level we also connect to the world around us in a more true way. It is my belief that incorporating the elements of yoga into daily life in small ways, even just taking the time to focus on breath for a moment or remembering posture, leads to a positive change in peoples lives. My teaching style is encouraging, supportive, and honest, creating a space where you can get to know your body and expand its capabilities, a safe and grounded environment in which to grow and learn.

Suzanne Zuber, Yoga Instructor
Suzanne completed her advanced RYT 500 certification with Noah Mazé (LA and Berlin), and teaches alignment-based hatha, vinyasa and restorative classes, workshops, and retreats in the Bay Area and in Europe. Her passion for teaching comes from direct experience: yoga can turn your life around as you reconnect to your innate freedom. Suzanne’s yoga journey began 10 years ago in a German Ashtanga studio as a stressed professional and new mom, with chronic pain from years of dancing Ballet. Yoga revolutionized her life as she began to reframe problems into opportunities and reconfigured her body. As a teacher, Suzanne’s first priority is to help students release tension, grow strong to the core, and become well-aligned in body, mind, and spirit. Her instruction incorporates techniques from physiotherapy and movement science to unlock the powers of traditional yoga. This way, we can strengthen our own respective weak areas and open tight spots that are often caused by years of one-sided workouts and 'office-and-iphone asana'. Yoga classes with Suzanne are upbeat and humorous, challenging and reflective, and celebrate the joy of movement.suzanneyoga.net
