Hi! I’m Ann Hedly, a proud mother to three beautiful boys. I have been cultivating the sensibility of living well and in harmony with life as it is since I was 18 and took my first yoga class. I grew up in Virginia, moved to NYC to pursue a dance career and now I live on a unique partly solar-powered homestead in Appleton, Maine.
I have been teaching and studying yoga for the past 20 years. My dance and movement background informs every class I teach. I share sounding in yoga as taught by my first yoga teacher, Ketul Arnold. And, using wisdom shared by Erich Schiffmann, my classes have begun to look like this: Relax, Love More, Be Brave, Trust. Repeat.
I also home educate my three sons. I love to share ideas and problem solve around homeschooling and parenting. I look for solutions that support the entire family. I am available to guide, advise and answer questions about homeschooling and unschooling. Click here to schedule a consultation with me.
You can get a sense of my experience unschooling by listening to me having a conversation about unschooling with Pam Laricchia on her podcast “Exploring Unschooling” (Note: this was pre-divorce and I was Ann Rousseau then!)
While sometimes I actually forget about my alopecia, it is a shiny fact! I was a child of 5 when alopecia areata began to show up in my life as tiny round patches of hair loss. I’ve been through all aspects of this complicated auto-immunity challenge and I’m an outspoken advocate and champion for people with hair loss. I recently co-produced a documentary film about my hairloss experience, Mop Cap: An Alopecia Story.
I recently attended “Loving What Is” with Byron Katie. I find “the work” absolutely life changing and gives me tools for self-inquiry in a way that I’ve longed for my whole life. I invite you to investigate on your own. All the tools are available, for free, at her website below.
Lastly, I’d like to offer you a recommendation.
Exercise Freedom. You didn’t arrive here in this body at this time in history to repeat conditional patterns. You came to play with freedom. I hereby offer you this certificate to post on your wall, your fridge, carry in your bag… whatever you need to remind you that you are extraordinarily powerful and have more agency than you now utilize. I deem you worthy, powerful and whole. Here is an award.
