Ann has been a registered nurse for over 20 years and has specialized in Palliative care for the last 12 yrs. As her nursing career evolved Ann found her calling in helping patients and their families find solace as they coped with chronic or terminal illnesses. Palliative care is a holistic approach that works to relieve suffering in all areas of a patient’s life. A palliative care team uses a mutidisciplinary approach to address the physical, emotional, spiritual and social issues that arise with advanced illness.
As Ann’s focus evolved in nursing care, she discovered yoga and brought together the strong link between the care provided to a patient and the teachings provided as a yoga teacher. In 2010, she graduated from the 230-hour teacher training program at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis and is currently working on her Advanced 500-hour certification.
