ALL ABOUT THE KERI ANN
BEHIND KERI ANN YOGA
This Too Belongs Here.
I first found my personal yoga practice back in 2016, over the years my love and excitement for this practice deepened. I am regularly inspired by the space in-between. The ins and outs of getting from one place to another. The transitions, the journey I would even say. You will see many creative transitions through out my classes as a way to get out of your head and into your body. I theme all of my classes because I believe that on some level we are all connected and in some ways have felt similar experiences while navigating this crazy ride we call life. I cuss, often. Yes, that means even in my classes. I use to try to sensor this part of myself but that was constantly pulling me from the present moment. My themes usually go hand and hand with my personal experiences. That means you get to see the raw, unfiltered and extremely vulnerable side of my Self. It's not always pretty, but it is real.
If you were to ask me about my values, I would say something like ... I believe in genuine connection, I care deeply for my people, I respect honest interactions and communication. I strive to move and love with an open heart. I like to be challenged and stretched to see the world differently. I believe kindness is free. My personal goal as a human being is to live a BIG fucking life filled with connection, fueled by love and propelled forward by growth.
When I am not teaching you will probably find me outside. Being outside is how I stay connected. If I had to choose between the beach or being on top of a mountain, I will choose to be up high every time. I have two crazy as hell puppies named Rags and Happy. They are two of my greatest loves. Ragnar is 4 and a Texas Heeler. Happy is 3 and a Australian Shepard. Hints another reason we are always outside! For my big kid job, I sling wine at the best vineyard in the state of NC- Saint Paul Mountain Vineyards.
I feel most comfortable sitting on the floor, I eat the majority of all of my meals with my hands, I am mostly bare foot and I am always knee deep in dog hair. I know what you are thinking. Man, what a mess. That is one of my favorite complaments. "You are such a mess." It's true, I am. A daring, wild, and unpredictable mess.
I am 29 years young, my favorite colors are putrid green, and lilac purple. My favorite season is Fall. I have a deep addiction to strong coffee and I am definitely a morning person. My favorite smells are vanilla, lavender and patchouly. I love good hugs and direct eye connect. One of my new favorite hobbies is gardening.
My goal as a yoga teach is to build a community, a container where we can all show up in a safe and genuine manner to explore the deeper parts of ourselves.
If there is something else you would like to know, please ask! I am here for it. The connection, the community and all the LOVE.
