About Annette

Annette Wertman, Chair Yoga Instructor, Vancouver, BC

I am a certified yoga instructor and registered music therapist, in Vancouver, BC, specializing in chair yoga. I have over 40 years of experience working with children and adults of all abilities and challenges. I recently completed the requirements for an M.A. in Gerontology at Simon Fraser University. The Highlight Report of my thesis is available on my website www.agelessyoga.ca.

I teach ‘Yoga with Chair’ through Yoga Outreach, the Council of Senior Citizen’s Organizations of BC, the Jewish Community Center, Hillcrest Community Centre, the RoundHouse Community Centre, South Burnaby Neighborhood House, Windermere Care Center, Courtland Terrace, The Poppy Residences, South Vancouver Neighbourhood House, at Condo 518 and also privately. Come July 2014 I will also lead yoga classes at the new Senior Living Legacy:Leo Wertman Residence.

I have also presented workshops at the Vancouver Yoga Show, the Toronto Yoga Show, Semperviva Yoga Center and for the Canadian Association of Gerontology, the Canadian Nurses Association, the International Council on Active Ageing, the Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of BC and BC Recreation and Parks Board.

I also offer a Chair Yoga Teacher Training (35hr. Yoga Alliance approved) credit course through Semperviva Yoga School.

As a Baby Boomer, I am passionate about embracing aging. After all “You are only old once!” I believe that yoga provides this opportunity. “Through the practice of yoga, the body, mind and soul connect to live each day to its fullest potential”.

Join me….and yoga your way to better health!
