“It is in choosing to accept your practice the way it is right now that you move from fear to freedom. Commit to the journey of yoga rather than trying to force your pose to look a specific way,” says Yoga Journal contributing editor Annie Carpenter. It’s with this compassionate approach that she teaches her SmartFLOW style of yoga in Venice and San Francisco. The former professional dancer is also the woman behind the RelaxDEEPLY CD and Yoga for Total Back Care DVD.
