When Annette was thirteen years old, her vocal teacher introduced her to meditation as a practice for focus. After about a year, her teacher also introduced Annette to her first Yoga session. As she grew she developed a family and career, and did what she could to find balance, peace and energy. Always drawn by energy, she explored many thoughts and expressions of energy. After many years of searching and exploring she received her Yoga certification through the Shanti Shanti Yoga School. Annette has chosen to follow meditation and Yoga as a way to focus, release, restore, receive and express herself.
Feeling grateful for the day and giving back to the Earth and our community, she volunteers for within the community, is a Leader of a multi-level Girl Scout Troop and is involved in her daughter’s school garden program. She loves to teaching children awareness, self acceptance, courage, confidence, character, leadership skills, mindfulness and how one person can make a difference.
In addition to her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification, she is a Reiki Master, holds certifications as a Kids Yoga Teacher, Yoga For All Teacher and a Tissue Issues Coach by Divine Energetics.
Annette invokes a teaching style that the draws the attention of an open, warm and compassionate environment; always expressing the importance of laughing, being in the moment and accepting yourself as your are today, and what we can do for each other.
When Annette isn’t teaching Yoga or taking a Yoga class, you can find her outdoors with her family hiking, camping or blogging on her website: ProjectRefinedLife.com
