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.
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on:
- Private yoga sessions via Zoom (which caters to your specific needs)
- Yoga party via Zoom for you and your friends/co-workers/family (one hour private group yoga class for you and your invitees)

Weekly Zoom yoga classes
End of year series yoga classes with Ann
My end of the year Zoom Yoga Series begins on Wednesday, Sept. 30 and/or Thursday, Oct. 1.
The 11-week series is $83 via Venmo (or $86 via credit card) OR $93 via Venmo (or $96 via credit card) with two added special classes on the Wednesdays right before Thanksgiving and Christmas* (Contact me for pricing if you’d like to attend Wednesdays and Thursdays. )
- Wednesdays at noon (Sep. 30, Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28; Nov. 4, 11, 18; Dec. 2, 9, 16)**
- Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. (Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; Nov. 5, 12,19; Dec. 3, 10, 17)**
*There will be two added classes the Wednesday at noon before Thanksgiving (Nov. 25) and the Wednesday at noon before Christmas (Dec. 23), which are not part of either series. If you are interested in doing yoga on those days as well that will be $10 more. (Being part of my series you get a discount for those classes if you pay with the series. Otherwise those classes are the $10 drop-in fee.)
**Time change will happen for most states on Sunday, Nov. 1. The times above will stay Pacific. For students in Arizona the times will shift to be an hour later.
The classes will be for an hour and will be all-levels Hatha. If you’ve never done yoga before you will be OK practicing with me. And if you’ve practiced a long time you will still be challenged with me.
I also record these classes. The recorded class(es) are available to anyone who pays for a class or classes. If you miss class, you can take it later. If you made it to class and want to take it again (and again) you can!
Drop ins will be $10 via Venmo and $11 via credit card for each class attended. (If you want to drop in for class you will need to e-mail me and pay no later than two hours before class starts. You are welcome to drop in for any class I hold through the end of the year.)
E-mail me at email@example.com to sign up for a class. I’ll send you a link for payment and a waiver for you to read, sign and scan back to me.
Upcoming special yoga classes/ workshops:
Celebrate the transition into fall Restorative Workshop with Ann via Zoom on Saturday, September 26
Celebrate the transition into fall with a relaxing restorative sequence with Ann.
Two hours of self-love and self-care. Transitioning from summer to fall is the biggest transition of the year. We still don’t know what it will look like for 2020. The first day of fall is September 22, 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: Saturday, September 26, 2020
• Time: 2 p.m. (Pacific); 3 p.m. (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 August/September 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. (Once I receive your payment and read/signed/scanned wavier I will send you a meeting invite link.)
Birthday weekend yoga classes in October
October birthday weekend yoga celebrations with me (Oct. 10 and Oct. 11)!!!
Yoga and Wine with Ann via Zoom on Saturday, October 10
Over my birthday weekend 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 past Yoga and Wine events as it will be over my birthday weekend and I want to celebrate.
This event will be a donation-based class. Suggested donation of $10. I will donate half the proceeds to Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption, where our greyhound Geordie came from (and where the three foster dogs we’ve brought into our home temporarily are from). If you have an October birthday I will donate all of what you donate. Happy October birthdays!
- Event: Yoga and Wine with Ann via Zoom
- Date: Saturday, October 10, 2020
- Time: 2 p.m. (Pacific); 3 p.m. (Mountain); 4 p.m. (Central); and 5 p.m. (Eastern)
- Suggested donation: $10 (with half the money being donated)
If many people are interested I may open this event up a little bigger than the usual limit of 10. I’ll gage interest. But I likely won’t allow it to get too big so that the happy hour is manageable and fun.
If you are interested, send me an e-mail at email@example.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.) If you donate via Venmo, please indicate that it’s either for the October 10 class or SA Greys.
Special Sunday yoga class with Ann via Zoom on Sunday, October 11, 2020
I will host a second class over my birthday weekend on Sunday, October 11, 2020 with half the proceeds being donated to SA Greys.

- Date: Sunday, October 11, 2020
- Time: 10 a.m. (Pacific); 11 a.m. (Mountain); noon (Central); and 1 p.m. (Eastern)
- Suggested donation: $10–but no one will be turned away (with half the money being donated)
If you want to attend this special class, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This class is about love and being open to anyone who wants to attend. 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.) If you donate via Venmo, please indicate that it’s either for the October 11 class or SA Greys.
If you can’t attend class but still want to donate, you are welcome to donate. Please still e-mail at email@example.com to let me know you are donating. You can also donate directly to SA Greys byclicking here.
YouTube yoga classes with Ann
My YouTube yoga classes will always be free. You have more than 25 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:
- Casa Maria Soup Kitchen
- Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona
- Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse
- Fuel the Response for Arizona Students
- Mobile Meals of Southern Arizona
- Pima Council On Aging
- Poverello House
- Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption
- Tucson Unified School Lunches
- Youth On Their Own
