Ann Hunt

Ann's teaching is a reflection of the many inspiring teachers she has studied with throughout the US, Central America and India during the many years she has been practicing yoga.  Her yoga journey began shortly out of college while living in Washington DC.  She teaches yoga in an interdisciplinary style integrating several modalities including Iyengar, Kripalu, Self-Awakening, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative yoga as well as yoga on the rope wall. Her classes also incorporate breath awareness and Mindfulness.  Her primary focus is on creating a nurturing, challenging and fun experience that honors the unique needs of each individual. She aims to help her students cultivate a greater sense of ease, self-acceptance, embodiment and resilience while practicing at their own pace.  Ann’s interdisciplinary approach to yoga offers a unique blend of movement, mindfulness, and holistic wellness, making her classes a transformative experience for students of all levels.

A dream of Ann’s has been to cultivate a vibrant yoga community in Southern Maryland.  In 2010 she founded Evolve Yoga + Wellness, the first designated yoga studio in Southern Maryland, with support of the trainees in the yoga teacher training she was directing at the time.  From 2010 through 2021 Ann was the owner and Creative Director of Evolve and as well directed multiple 200 and 300 hour YTT.  January 2022 Ann happily passed the torch along to Evolve’s current owner/director Kelley. 

Ann was a senior faculty member of the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica where she worked with Don & Amba Stapleton from 2000 - 2016, teaching and assisting  programs in both Nosara, Costa Rica and at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY.
