About Annette

I am an old soul with a young heart….  A Philly native & Dance major graduate of the Philadelphia High School for Creative & Performing Arts. Creativity & performing have been in my life since birth. As a teenager I was on 2 daily dance shows “Philadelphia’s Dancin on Air” & national “Dance Party USA” . 


I’ve had a lot of creative and interesting jobs over the years!  The longest running one was working as a Madonna impersonator which helped me make the move to California. At one point I also worked as a Gwen Stefani impersonator. I’ve always lived an active lifestyle and I  taught dance and fitness for many years! I have taught every class imaginable. Other jobs I had were in production for tv, TV producer, children’s theater from choreographing to costuming. A favorite was when I was a  Dance Director of a  tween dance team & took them to DisneyWorld to dance in the parade! I am a huge Disney nerd!!! 


Throughout the craziness of my life as an entertainer and teacher, my one vice has always been yoga. I found myself open to the healing that yoga brings. I knew I had to share with others all the gifts that it had blessed my life with. I continue to be the eternal student. I hold many Yoga certifications and have done many trainings as well as taught trainings, classes, workshops, and retreats. I taught Yoga Ed at the programs flagship facility, The Accelerated School in South Central LA (a charter school within the LAUSD school system) to children in grades K-12. I have taught all levels, beginners to advanced, kids to adults, pregnant women and mommy and me. My favorite style to teach is a yoga flow vinyasana class. I continue to teach classes and privates. Along with teaching yoga I am a health & wellness coach!


Some of my other passions are cake decorating, gymnastics, reading, musicals, crystal art, holistic healing, astrology, party  planning & personalized party favor. I love crafts! 

I have been fortunate enough to have the ability to manifest what I need into my life and am looking forward to sharing all I have learned and love with you. I believe anything you can dream of can be a reality. I believe in visualization, meditation, journaling, affirmations, having a strong morning routine & living a healthy holistic life style. I always choose LOVE!
