While organizing your own yoga events in Spain, Colombia, Mexico and various countries of the world, Annie Moves was in dialogue with digital Marie Claire and talked about her career and her passion for yoga.
– People know you as Annie Moves, what is the movement for you?
Annie: When I started and was brainstorming ideas, to choose a name for this yoga movement and thus be able to share my practices, my postures, I chose the name Annie Moves. Now looking back, it makes me laugh a lot because I think about it and I haven’t stopped moving. Although I started in Miami with my classes, now I am working on events in different countries. And I think that movement is essential for me, in exercise, in yoga, in my life. I really like change, because I am a person who likes a challenge and I have always been very flexible, in my mind and in the way I adapt to any situation.
– When did you start to venture into the world of yoga?
Annie: I started many years ago with my parents in Venezuela. They started practicing yoga when I was about 12 years old. Literally a teacher came to our house and gave us private lessons. So around that age I started to dabble in this world. Also from a very young age I practiced ballet, rhythmic gymnastics, flamenco, and I was very athletic; then I notice that the movement has always been essential. One thing led to another, in recent years, especially in the pandemic, I focused on the world of yoga and started my training as an instructor.
-In which branch of yoga do you feel most comfortable?
Annie: Yoga has many branches, but I would call them ‘commandments’: breathing, asanas, spirituality, mantras, etc. I couldn’t tell you that I feel more comfortable in one, because yoga is a combination of all of them. I definitely think it was very interesting, especially this last year, to rely a lot on my spirituality, to practice meditation. I feel like this was what gave me stability and where I found a lot of comfort.
-You are an ambassador for a sportswear brand, what place does fashion have in your life?
Annie: I am currently working with Alo Yoga and I can tell you that I love everything related to fashion, especially what is sustainable and conscious. I am a person who loves to dress with colors, for example, every morning when I choose my outfit and my yoga mat, it has an impact on my practice and puts me in a very good mood. It is what defines my first attitude when I get up. There are people who don’t think about it, but for me it has a positive impact.
-In social networks you always make it clear that “breathing is everything”, why?
Annie: Breathing in yoga (and in life) is everything. I believe that when you think about your breath, you automatically connect with your brain and start paying attention to it, as well as breathing better. It is a practice that has a very positive impact on your life, on many levels, because it is connected to our brain, our nervous system and it is literally what drives our body, our mood and emotions. I think my mission is to convince the people around me that we should pay more attention to it because it is something that can help us heal many things.
-Do you think there is a yoga taboo that deserves to be disproved?
Annie: Hundred percent. People believe that to do yoga you must be flexible, and flexibility lives in your head, in your brain and it is something that you work on and it is completely possible for anyone. Yoga is not just something physical, it is a very personal and beneficial practice for everyone. It is very common that when someone new starts, they believe that they will never be able to do this, but as they discover themselves, they unblock those energy channels that we carry inside, and it is impressive what can be achieved. The worst thing that can happen to you is that you don’t like the class, and the best thing is that it can change your life.
