Anh Chi Pham, MFA, C-IAYT®, E-RYT 500®, Certified Yoga Therapist and Yoga Instructor, started yoga 20 years ago to heal a fractured L2. She has studied from many different teachers and styles, receiving her 200hr certification at Kripalu, 500hr at LMU’s Yoga Therapy Rx Program, and additional certifications and trainings with Amy Wheeler, Jill Miller, Shelly Prosko, Leslie Howard and the Krishnamacharya Yoga Madiram in Chennai. In her own practice and teaching, Anh Chi encourages mindfulness, curiosity, natural alignment, and functional movement. Some of her classes have been called “the hard gentle” because she integrates strengthening as well as stretching and relaxation. Her goal as a teacher is to create a safe space for movement and inquiry so that students can more easily reconnect with their bodies’ natural intelligence, separate from their over-active minds, and rest more deeply into and as their true being or essence.
