Hello! My name is Annika Ihnat and I’m a Los Angeles-based yoga, movement and meditation teacher.
Moving Into Presence is about moving in new and interesting ways, in harmony with our breath, to really feel and embody our aliveness in this moment. It’s about playing with natural, creative movements that help you function better and feel better in your everyday life — whether you’re walking the dog, working out, carrying groceries or playing with your little ones.
Moving Into Presence is befriending your breath and your mind to establish a safe haven within yourself. It’s about learning to meet whatever comes our way with as much tenderness, understanding and resilience as possible. It’s recognizing when we’ve wandered off the path and coming back to presence, one breath at a time.
Moving Into Presence is a lifelong journey, and we need each other along the way. My intention is to bring people together to practice in community, for our own well-being and for the benefit of everyone around us.
"May we live like
the lotus, at home
in the muddy water."

One-on-One or Small Group Sessions
Private sessions are ideal if:
you're recovering from an injury or dealing with chronic pain;
you can’t find a yoga class that works for you or you don’t feel comfortable at a typical yoga studio;
you want to practice with 2-3 friends in a small group setting.
Office Yoga + Meditation
Research has found that workplace yoga and meditation can reduce stress and back pain, improve employees’ psychological well-being, and increase positive affect (energy, enthusiasm and attention).
Yoga and/or meditation classes designed specifically for office workers alleviate common pain points and provide employees with practical strategies they can use throughout the workday.
Special occasions are so much richer when we're fully present to experience the joy. A simple, feel-good yoga practice with your loved ones can help set the tone for your wedding day, bachelorette party, birthday or other special occasion.
