Meet the Executive Director:
Anne McCarthy, M.Ed., e-RYT 200, RYT 500, YACEP
Living up to her childhood nickname of Monkey, she has always loved the freedom found in hanging upside down and swinging. After starting aerial dance training in 2012, she found her passion by combining her love of yoga with the freedom of movement found through the aerial arts. You can find her teaching traditional and aerial yoga around San Antonio and at her studio, Aerial Yoga Boerne.
Anne is an experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (e-RYT)* through Yoga Alliance. She earned her RYT at the 200 hour level from the Esther Vexler Yoga School. She is a continuing education provider for yoga teachers (YACEP) and earned her 500 hour certification from The Alchemy of Form and Flow with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker. She is also a certified Kidding Around Yoga Instructor and has trained in kid’s aerial yoga with Yogapeutics. Anne was previously a math teacher for NEISD and has a Masters in Education.
*She has taught more than 1,000 hours to earn the title of e-RYT.
My classroom is a place of authentic exploration where students can nurture their stillness, playfulness, and joy. My classroom engages students in dynamic movements and breath. My class is designed to allow students to actively experience kriya yoga—the enduring of difficult poses with tapas, the surrender in each pose, and the wisdom to listen to their own inner teacher. My class will carve out a space for students to engage in the practice of being centered and creating space to observe themselves as a wholehearted person.
