"Anne Saliou's Back and Neck Care classes are AWESOME! She has taught me how to take myself out of pain. Anne's class has helped me more than physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and pain pills. Classes are small and taught with an assistant so you get a lot of individual attention. Anne takes great care to ensure that you are doing the pose correctly and not in pain. I highly recommend this class to anyone experiencing back problems."

I have been studying and practicing yoga for over ten years. I took Anne's neck-care class to try to resolve my neck issues.
The class has been absolutely phenomenal. Not only have I resolved my neck issues, but I have learned things about my posture (during my daily life and in my yoga poses) that I had never been aware of before. I will take these lessons learned to every aspect of my life: my yoga practice, sitting and standing and just general daily movements.
Anne is so extremely knowledgeable! I would highly recommend this class for everyone! It doesn't matter what level yoga student you are. There is knowledge in the class for the aspiring teacher (such as myself) to someone who has never done a yoga pose in their life.
