Welcome to the Keen on Yoga Podcast with Annie Pace.
With over 40 years of experience, Annie is one of the most adept practitioners of traditional Ashtanga Yoga. Guruji taught her the first four Ashtanga sequences completely and introduced her to the fifth (Advanced C Section). In 1995, he presented her with a rare “Advanced B” certification to teach.
Annie has a very clear and compassionate teaching style. All levels of practitioners benefit from her ability to distill her decades of experience. In addition, her skill in working therapeutically with students of compromised health or physicality is one of her most profound gifts.
Above all Annie considers it a blessing and and honor to have been entrusted with carrying on this lineage. Therefore it is her primary intention to do so in authenticity. In addition, Annie’s immersion in yogic sciences also expands into Ayurveda, yogic cooking, and Hindustani music.
Annie created Shakti Sharanam Yoga Shala (in Sanskrit ‘a refuge for sacred energy’). Located in the mountain community of Colorado, a place known for its many spiritual centers. Similarly its stunning natural setting is at the base of the Sangre de Cristo mountains.
The center, dedicated to upholding the purity of yogic tradition and exemplifies life as a practice. The project intentionally designed from the ground up hosts students for custom courses of study.
Unplugged from the electrical grid, Shakti Sharanam’s straw-bale structures are sustainably powered and heated by solar energy. Similarly, the natural building materials provide an exceptionally pure environment conducive to study and practice.
