After teaching group fitness for 17 years, Anne took her first Bikram yoga class and was hooked. She gave up teaching group fitness and dedicated her time to the study of yoga. Since taking the first Bikram class, Anne has also studied Ashtanga and Iyengar styles of yoga. Anne draws from all of these styles of yoga to teach an invigorating, yet accessible Hatha yoga class that appeals to beginners and continuing students alike. Anne is a graduate of the 2004 Teacher Training Class. She received her 500 hour certification in August of 2008. November of 2014 Anne upgraded her Yoga Alliance registration to ERYT-500 and is also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider. Anne has studied with Fancois Raoult, Carin O'Bannon, Lou Hoytt, David Swensen, Ramanand Patel, Amenda McMain, Sharath Rangaswamy, Doug Keller, Christina Sell and Anna Ferguson but considers her teachers to be Laura Spaulding and Paul Long. Anne is a graduate of the University of Louisville and holds a BSC in Management.
Anne Kosko instructs the following:
Hatha Yoga 1-2
Level 1-2 Mixed Level classes are geared to students in normal health who are still working to learn fundamental postures as well as those who have more experience and are seeking to expand, refine and develop their yoga practice at more subtle levels. Sun Salutations and series of flowing poses are incorporated at this level. All classes end with deep relaxation.
Gentle Level is ideal for seniors, pregnant women, and students recovering from illness, injury or surgery. Gentle classes are also great for anyone who needs a little rest and quiet from the busy pace of life. Gentle Yoga has a slower pace and the teachers give more instruction on how to use props such as chairs, the wall, blocks, blankets, bolsters for support. Gentle Yoga introduces fundamental Hatha Yoga postures while ensuring that students have time to understand the instructions, and get the props needed to practice the pose to their capacity. This class may include accupressure yoga, chakra yoga visualizations, pranayama and mudras. Class ends in deep relaxation.
Although this class is suited to students needing assistance, students with pronounced physical limitations are requested to phone us first about their restrictions before coming to class. Phone Laura Spaulding at the main office during business hours at 502-585-9642. Leave a message if she is out and she will return your call.
