Annie Wegner LeFort (RYT 200) has been practicing yoga since 2006. She received her Yoga Alliance certification in 2018 after training at the Yoga Center for Healthy Living in Brighton, Michigan and also completed a 16-hour Children’s Yoga Teaching certification in spring of 2018 through Global Family Yoga. She is involved in the local Acro Yoga community and is a member of the student company of Panadanza Dance Company in Milwaukee through which she practices Latin and Afro-Caribbean dance. Annie is a runner and outdoors person and loves any kind of creative movement that helps her explore a full range of motion.
She complements her yoga lifestyle through a background in cooking for health and wellness. She studied Food and Nutrition in Business at Purdue University and Culinary Arts at MATC and has been involved with local food in Milwaukee by way of restaurant work as well as teaching from-scratch cooking/preservation classes through The Mindful Palate and working with local CSAs (community supported agriculture) and farms since 2000. She brings a holistic approach to her students by offering both nutrition and movement knowledge.
Annie is excited to work with adults and young people to help them become more comfortable in their bodies, celebrate their uniqueness, learn practical relaxation techniques, gain focus and stability, and heal through gentle stretching and meditation.
