Anne Platt’s yoga practice has emerged from a deep background in fitness and dance as well as extensive training and experience in yoga therapy. Most recently, she co-created the nationally-renowned yoga program for the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Administration – where she employs therapeutic yoga techniques to help combat vets reduce and manage symptoms of PTSD and other combat-related injuries.
Anne has training certifications from Robert Birnberg; Richard Miller; Larry Payne “Prime of Life Yoga”; Shiva Rey; Max Strom and many other wonderful teachers. She has also completed the three-year Yoga Therapy program at Loyola Marymount University and is a Certified Yoga Therapist and member of Yoga Alliance.
Her 5Point yoga class is designed to be accessible to anyone from elite athletes to beginners looking to reduce stress and improve strength and flexibility. Her approach is grounded in a simple mantra: Let’s not tie ourselves in knots, but rather untie the knots that hinder body, mind & spirit.
Anne lives in Malibu with husband Tony and three dogs (sometimes more!). Her daughters Jessica and Samantha live in Hong Kong and France.
