Today we’d like to introduce you to Anita Perry.
Anita, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am an author, educator, yogi, and blogger and has been in the fitness business since 1978. As the owner of Healthwatch Workshops, I trained individuals to be aerobic instructors, provided on site corporate fitness programs, and was a continuing education provider to the fitness industry. I was drawn to yoga after I experienced an injury,” she says, “And I’ve never looked back!” I have a master’s degree in education and I am a frequent presenter at professional development and education conferences. I have taught all age groups from adult to elementary and bring my enthusiasm and classroom experience to the yoga community. My mission is to bring all ages and abilities to yoga. I want everyone to have a positive experience.
Has it been a smooth road?
No, it has not been a smooth road. Life has a way of detouring the best-laid plans, some of which are in your control and some of which is not. For all young women, I would say, you can not worry about the unexpected, but you can be mindful of your own self-worth. Surround yourself with people who will lift you and support you. Be kind to yourself.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with YogaAnita – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Though my practice has students from all age groups, my core group are women like myself, in a certain age group, going through challenges of self-worth, beauty, and relevancy. My yoga practice combines Hatha yoga with Extended meditation, and as a teacher, I try to make sure that I offer a practice that has different levels for all participants.
I write for my own blog, am a guest blogger and has been featured on Vibrant Nation, Alignable.com, Garage gym planner, and Fitsmallbusiness.com. I am the author of Yogaminute, Yoga Wisdom, and a frequent guest wellness speaker. I was voted Best Yoga and Meditation Instructor by Thumbtack, Inc. for two years in a row.
Are there any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve benefited from using?
I try to stay current by reading Yoga Journal, Yoga International, and other natural health periodicals. I also try to re-read my books from my teacher training periodically as well.
