About Asana Alphabet

 

Asana Alphabet(tm) provides high-quality yoga classes for youth of all ages and teacher trainings in children's yoga.  Whether sending a yoga teacher to a weekly kindergarten class, training a school teacher to integrate yoga into the classroom, offering complinentary online yoga classes during a pandemic or creating curricula that meets high educational standards, each program has been test-tried to ensure both learning and fun while integrating the mind and body through effective and authentic yoga techniques.  

Ann Robideaux, founder and director, has been teaching  adult yoga and children's yoga for over 20 years to kids of all ages and backgrounds. She is certified in Kundalini Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Thai Yoga Bodywork, Prenatal Yoga, Structural Yoga Therapy and holds higher degrees in psychology, dance and choreography.  In addition to meeting the Yoga Alliance standards for a 200ERYT, she has logged over 550 hours of training in the field of yoga and has taught over 11,000 hours of yoga classes (as of 2020). Having overcome severe injury (from a dance career) in great part due to a daily yoga practice, she is a true believer in the transformative power that yoga and mindfulness offer. 


The Asana Alphabet(tm) philosophy is that the best learning is found through teaching experience; that is why we are committed to only granting children's yoga certification to kids yoga trainees who have observed classes and taught actual children in a real-life setting. Those who take our intensive trainings are given enough tools to begin teaching kids yoga confidently right away.  Having been recognized as a CYS with the Yoga Alliance, our standards  exceed the average expectations of the yoga industry.  


Since its official legal founding in 2004, Asana Alphabet(tm) has donated over 2000 volunteer yoga classes, 1000 yoga mats to schools in need, and awarded teacher training scholarships to teachers working in underfunded public schools on a regular basis.  We have partnered with over 50 different schools through out NYC since our founding and have expanded into NJ, Miami, Arkansas, Brazil, and Belize as of late.
