GO GIVE YOGA

Go Give Yoga Foundation’s mission to empower children to maximize their physical, intellectual, and emotional well-being through yoga is close to Ann’s heart. Go Give Yoga focuses on under-funded schools and communities in the U.S. and abroad and offers a grass roots, hands on approach to serving at risk children from Appalachia to Haiti.  By organizing teams of yoga teachers through ‘seva’, or selfless service, they travel to and work directly with children, teaching them yoga, breathing and so much more.

 

Ann’s trip to Haiti with Go Give Yoga and the experience she had there transformed her. She quickly became more involved and is now an executive board member.

 

"I'm so grateful for this work and to serve on the board of Go Give Yoga as a teacher trainer in the communities they serve. Yoga changes lives and hearts especially our own."
 

“Never have I received so much, while giving so little.” – Ann Biese

“In Haiti, the light in their faces shined beyond their smiles directly into their hearts and into mine, and I was never the same.” – Ann Biese

"In yoga we speak of opening the heart. Teaching yoga in Haiti has blown the doors of my heart wide open. I have connected to children whose hunger to express their inner joy lives alongside their physical hunger. They are eager to receive yoga's message: We are whole. We are one.  We are all part of the circle of yoga."

MINDFUL YOGA FOR TEENS

Teenagers Need Yoga

The teen years are particularly stressful when social and peer pressures are often at the highest.  Ann believes the beneficial effects of yoga are exceptionally relevant at this time of life. She works with teens, helping them understand how their brain affects their behavior, and uses rhythmic breathing and stretching as a natural way to relieve stress.  Yoga also helps develop a positive mind-body connection in teens to improve not only body image and focus, but also posture, muscle strength, balance and flexibility. 

 
Yoga Can Also Help Teens 

  • get Better Sleep

  • improve Concentration and Attention

  • increase Self-Esteem

  • boost Self-Confidence

  • help with Digestive Issues

  • expand Creativity

  • inspire a Healthier Lifestyle

MINDFUL YOGA FOR ADULTS

Yoga has tremendous benefits for everyone. In today’s crazy and frenetic world, yoga and mindfulness is a practical tool to help you develop physical and emotional wellbeing. A yoga practice that includes breathing exercises, yoga poses and ends in savasana (a rest period) helps you develop inner awareness and lowers stress.  It can also improve brain function, as well as increase flexibility and strength.

Ann’s cancer care classes are derived out of her additional training with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Care Center.

 
Ann observed the physical and emotional benefits of yoga when she offered her first class for cancer care patients in 2011, and from that point on, has worked to bring peace of mind and balance to her students. She has built a safe, effective and empowering yoga program tailored to meet individual needs and for students to feel welcome, supported and honored. 
 
*Patients must have a signed waiver from their Cancer Care physician to participate.
 

“As a cancer survivor, I have found strength and wisdom through yoga. It has allowed me to find inner peace during a time when my mind was racing. Even when I am not feeling well or am tired, gentle yoga poses feel good to my body and I begin to feel energized. Through yoga, I have an overall sense of well-being and happiness.”
