Classes

Ann Chihak Poff, CYT 500

I teach Hatha/alignment-based yoga and Restorative yoga.

I teach to all levels, whether you are a beginner, recovering from an injury, needing a slower pace with strong alignment cues, gentle adjustments and some humor I’m the yoga teacher for you.

All levels are supported and welcome.

All students are welcome. All students are loved. All students are safe.

I teach two weekly Zoom Yoga classes (at noon on Wednesdays and 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays–times are Pacific). See more information below.

During the COVID-19 virus pandemic I am also pre-recording yoga classes, which I am uploading to my YouTube channel. See more information below.

I am still available for privates and special events via Zoom during the pandemic.

Upcoming special yoga classes/workshops:

‘Holiday Party’ Yoga classes

Holiday ‘Party’ Yoga Celebrations with Ann via Zoom

This year has been a real zinger. Nothing about this year has been “normal” and definitely not easy. Holiday parties (like so much else this year) are on hold. How about we Zoom holiday party with Yoga and Wine and/or Yoga and Cooking?

Holiday Party Yoga and Wine on December 12
On Saturday, December 12, I will provide an hour of wine-themed yoga. You will have to provide the wine (or beer or whatever you decide to drink). Afterward (for whoever wants to continue to join) we’ll have a wine happy hour. (It’s super fun!)

This event will be a little different than most of the past Yoga and Wine events as it will be a holiday party theme (kinda like my birthday Yoga and Wine event).

This event will be a donation-based class. Suggested donation of $10. (If the suggested donation is too much, please let me know. I want to support you with yoga and fun.) I will donate half the proceeds to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

If you are interested, send me an e-mail at therealgofitgirl@gmail.com to reserve your spot. You can donate to my Venmo (@Ann-Chihak Poff) or with a credit card via Square. (You will also need to fill out a waiver if you are new to Zoom yoga with me. Please give me at least two hours notice you want to attend class.) If you donate via Venmo, please indicate that it’s either for the December 12 class or the food bank.

Holiday Party Special Sunday Yoga and Cooking Class on Sunday, December 13
I will host a second holiday party class with an hour of yoga. And if you’d like to stick around after for cooking and a meal togeher … my good friend Dolma will teach us how to make a simple, delicious and healthy meal together. (It can be made vegetarian and is gluten free.

Click here for the list of ingredients you will need to make our simple, healthy and delicious (can be vegetarian) gluten-free meal. Only 11 ingredients!

If you want to attend this special class, please e-mail me at therealgofitgirl@gmail.com. This class is about love and being open to anyone who wants to attend. If you can’t afford the suggested donation, please still come. This is open to everyone. You can donate to my Venmo (@Ann-Chihak Poff) or with a credit card via Square. (You will also need to fill out a waiver if you are new to Zoom yoga with me. Please give me at least two hours notice you want to attend class.) If you donate via Venmo, please indicate that it’s either for the December 13 class or the food bank.

If you can’t attend the class(es) but still want to donate, you are welcome to donate. Please still e-mail at therealgofitgirl@gmail.com to let me know you are donating. You can also donate directly to my local food bank by clicking here.

Winter Solstice Restorative Workshop on Sunday, Dec. 20

Celebrate the transition from fall to winter with a relaxing restorative sequence with Ann.

Two hours of self-love and self-care. Transitioning from fall to winter we will focus more of going inside. The first day of winter is December 21, 2020.

All props for this practice will come from your own home: pillows, blankets, towels, etc.

I will help you relax in your own home utilizing what you already have.

• When: Sunday, December 20, 2020
• Time: 2 p.m. (Pacific); 3 p.m. (Arizona/Mountain); 4 p.m. (Central); and 5 p.m. (Eastern)
• Cost: $20 per participant via Venmo or $21 per participant via credit card (If you are in my End of Year weekly Zoom class series the price is $15/$16)

You will receive an archived link to the Restorative class and a worksheet soon after the workshop. This session will also include a short Q&A before and after. If you have questions about yourself, how to set something up or about one of the poses you practice during the sequence.

If you are interested, send me an e-mail at therealgofitgirl@gmail.com to reserve your spot. (You will also need to fill out a waiver if you are new to Zoom yoga with me. Please give me at least two hours notice you want to attend class.)

Holiday donation-based yoga classes

Join me over the holidays for yoga. Details below.

(If you’d like to come to both classes and you want to make a one-time donation, feel free. Just please let me know what class(es) you will be attending.)

Christmas Day Yoga

New Year’s Day Yoga

Sliding scale suggestion(s):

I will donate half the proceeds to Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

If you’re interested in attending, e-mail me at therealgofitgirl@gmail.com to reserve your spot. (If you have NOT done Zoom yoga with me before you will need to fill out a waiver.) You can make your donation via Venmo: https://venmo.com/Ann-ChihakPoff or via credit card by clicking here.


YouTube yoga classes with Ann

My YouTube yoga classes will always be free. You have more than 30 classes to pick from, with new ones being added on occasion.

If you have the means and are inclined, you can make a donation to my teaching. I will in turn donate part of the money to a local charity. There are two ways you can donate to me:

If you would like to donate to me each time you take a class or a one-time payment, feel free. Again, I don’t want anyone to feel bad if they can’t pay or feel obligated to pay. This is totally voluntary. I am not doing this for money. I am doing this because I believe it is what I can contribute to your self-care, self-love and good energy during these scary times. This is my gift to you.

Here’s my idea: People donate to me as they wish. Every time the donations reach a balance of $50 I will donate $25 of that to a charity in Tucson, where I live. Of those who donated that $50, their names will be put in a hat and the “winner” gets to pick the charity where the money goes. You have 10 charities to choose from:
