Who we are

We're a Pilates and Yoga studio offering private and semi-private sessions. We  have  over 18 years in the industry are trained to help you restore hope in your body and get you back to the active lifestyle that you once led or just wanting better performance results! We have the highest standards of teaching, and we watch and teach you from beginning to end. We have taught and trained for almost two  decades and can literally see what needs to change in movement patterns to achieve optimum health.

During these most challenging times we are still seeing clients visually for private sessions. We also have many videos that can be purchased or rented on various techniques like traction methods, chair yoga, pilates, strategies for dealing with neck pain, pirifomis issues, restorative yoga, yoga for empaths and people dealing with anxiety, and much more. New videos are added weekly. 


We've successfully helped hundreds of people using different modalities such as Pilates,  Iyengar based Yoga, Physical Therapy, Restorative Yoga, Body Rolling and other myofascial muscle releasing techniques, Gyrotonic, and Breathing Awareness Practice. All of these movement modalities help to bring you back into your truest alignment. Learning the Pilates Method and the principles of Yoga alignment changed my life, now I am ready to help you move towards the life, body and health that you deserve.

Are you ready to work on your path to healing, movement, and inner strength? 

Class Schedule

As of right now, I am not teaching a regular weekly class, but do offer workshops at various studios online in the Bay Area. Please get on my mailing list if you are interested. I teach workshops on various topics, such as Yoga for Back Pain and or Scoliosis, Creating at Home Traction methods, Unwinding Neck Tension, The Pathway of the Psoas, and Restorative Yoga for Anxiety and Trauma. I am also soon launching a 4 week series on the pathway of the psoas and its connections to our kidney/adrenal complex, our fight/flight/freeze response in our bodies, our belly brain and our innate bodies intelligence and wisdom. The psoas is a place of knowing, versus thinking of the mind. I have many recorded classes and workshops that you can rent or purchase on my home page, scroll down to videos. More videos are added weekly.


I am also working on a 4 week series on Building Resilience with a home practice. Looking at all the ways we get in our own ways of having our own personal practice. Whatever that practice may be, a practice is holding space for ourselves, creating a boundary for ourselves, and creating and developing a relationship with ourselves. Many of us were never taught to care for ourselves, much less developing a relationship with our own bodies. Learning to tune in, navigate and know our inner terrain of our bodies is essential. We need to unplug, disconnect from the outer noise of life, to actually begin to hear our own inner voice and sensations of the body. Which in turn, brings us in deeper connection to the earth, the universe and who we truly are and our purpose.

monthly restorative yoga, guided meditation and writing Workshops

One Saturday a month, from 4-6pm. Where we focus on connecting back into ourselves and our bodies, unplugging and recharging. We practice breathing awareness exercises, restorative yoga, somatic meditation, and finish with writing prompts with a different focus each month, from connecting to our bodies, to forgiveness and creating space in our lives, to creating boundaries and finding our voice. Please go to www.anasaoakland.com to sign up, under workshops.
