Annie Hopper

I fell in love with Yoga the first time I stepped onto a mat in 1993 and have been voraciously studying ever since. Passionate about Restorative Yoga and all of its benefits, I became certified in 2009 after completing my first Yoga Teacher Training at The Yoga Tree in San Francisco with Judith Hanson Lasater. One year later, I founded and operated Grass Valley Yoga Studio, and began to share my love of this beautiful practice. I successfully completed the Foundations of Svaroopa Yoga teacher training in 2012. I received my most recent Yoga Alliance certification through The Yoga Shack in Nipomo, CA. My family and I relocated to the Central Coast in 2014 and I am grateful to have found the incredible community of Yoga Village which has welcomed me with open arms as the owner / director, since March 2016.

Countless people have turned to yoga because they suffer from previous injuries, and I am no exception. While I had tried it a few times as a teenager, my yoga journey really started in 2009. At that time, I had been suffering from chronic back pain for going on three years, and I was willing to try anything to get it to go away. I found some yoga videos online and did one session a night for a week (maybe two) and BOOM! Never had back pain again! It’s like something came undone, and my back loved me for it.

I continued to practice off and on throughout the years to accompany my strength training exercise and finally decided to take yoga teacher training in order to deepen my own practice and share the wonders of yoga with others.

My yoga teacher training from Yoga Village in Arroyo Grande, California taught me how to really listen to and honor my body, my mind, and my true Self. This authenticity is what I hope to share with you.
