The Story of White Feather Wellness
Hi I'm Anna Laurie
I've been in the fitness industry since 1985 as a certified group fitness and personal trainer. About 1998, I joined with a fellow trainer who trained me in MMA and we opened Tiger Dragon Martial Arts in NY. After years of overuse training, I turned to yoga to heal my body and found it healed my mind and spirit as well. I became a CYT in 2000 (certified yoga teacher) and began teaching a 5am yoga class to Type A, high strung intense people who were so tight yoga it was nearly impossible. I began stretching each one of them passively and, over time, noticed the profound effect this type of stretching had not only on their bodies but on their attitudes and demeanor. I soon discovered what I was doing was Thai Massage and I studied with Jonas Westring of Shantaya Yoga, eventually going with my teacher to Thailand to study with Pichest Boonthumme in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I am now a Licensed Massage Therapist, specializing in Thai Massage and Essential Oils.
I eventually left NY and moved to Alaska, where the healing community is flourishing. Since being here. I graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and have networked with some fantastic healers in Anchorage and the Valley.
Then I had a dream I was handed 3 white feathers:
*Yoga/Pilates*Massage*Health Coaching. And so began White Feather Wellness and Yoga!
I'm here to help you on your journey to health, happiness and wholeness !
