I pray the word spreads about this special retreat by Anne-Tyler and she creates many more. 20 souls will receive the precious gifts of a Yogini that will nourish their life’s gardens. Every person who attends will not only be guided through asana, breath work, and the other offerings, but I know each will be SEEN as a unique and special bloom. She plants little seeds throughout her practice with you that rest in your heart and grow over time as you practice with her over time. You will feel all that glorious Shakti Love she pours into the space you share. You will be in communion with the many masters, gurus, and angels she studies every single day and carries with her like a Divine Light. She channels the wisdom particularly of Yogananda. I have personally been enriched and healed by her teachings and practice in ways that are not easily put into words.
Any human anywhere will blossom in a hundred unexpected talents and capacities simply by being given

About Movement Classes:
Anne-Tyler and Blossom
Anne-Tyler is a former principal ballerina (sixteen-year professional dance career with Houston Ballet and Atlanta Ballet), registered RYT yoga instructor, and internationally acclaimed DJ. She has a deep passion to inspire the cultivation of body awareness, health, harmony, and unique soulful expression through the joy of self-discovery and the blossoming of limitless potential that resides in us all.
ABOUT ANNE-TYLER HARSHBARGER:
Anne-Tyler enjoyed 16 years of performing on stages across the world as an Atlanta Ballet principal ballerina and Houston Ballet corps member. This very disciplined, yet rewarding career gave her a deep knowledge of body awareness, posture, balance, and an inner ability to live with grace in the midst of challenge. Also a world-wide professional DJ for the past 12 years, her international music influences allow her to create seamless and transcendent journeys on the mat or the dance floor. She believes music, the universal language, is essential to healing and transformation as a collective consciousness. Anne-Tyler received her RYT-200 Yoga Alliance certification from Re:Form Yoga in Carlsbad, Ca. Her esteemed teachers are in direct lineage with the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya, who is known for customizing the practice to the changing needs of the individual. She is passionate about the benefits of yoga and its philosophies and believes yoga gently wrings the body out like dirty water from a washcloth, not only in the physiological way of removing toxins and calming the nervous system but also in the more subtle emotional and energetic layers. She has experienced firsthand that yoga and meditation bring to light the acquired patterns of the mind so that we might shed these false illusions of self as we blossom into our fullest expression. Her compassion for others and desire to liberate humanity into a reality of peace and love has compelled her to share these insights, hence the creation of Blossom Body Awareness.
