A yogini since age 23, Ann Mundy suffered from a major back and neck injury, and finally realized that some yoga was hurting instead of helping her. For her advanced 500-hour certification in Therapeutic Yoga, she wrote extensive research papers on the sacroiliac joint, back problems, and anatomy. In the process, she restored her health with yoga and healed her own chronic back and neck pain, developing her unique practice Bluebird Yoga. A graduate of Subtle Yoga Teacher Training in Asheville, Ann Mundy also studied at Forrest Yoga and Continuum in Santa Monica, and The Thinking Body – The Feeling Mind® in Los Angeles. She also uses Viniyoga and Energy Medicine techniques.

Now she wants to share these healing therapeutic postures, breathing techniques, and energy medicine that alleviate pain, develop abdominal strength for back support and great posture, and renew energy. Her personal story and magnificent healing from physical trauma is an inspiration and the perfect foundation to share her healing techniques. An award-winning photographer and TV documentary writer-producer-director, she includes multi-media of anatomy in her classes.

Her students run the gamut from those who simply enjoy the benefits of Bluebird Yoga to those with arthritis, PTSD, TBI (traumatic brain injury), Parkinsons, spinal cord trauma, osteoporosis, sciatica, S-I joint, or general back pain caused by gardening, bicycling, sitting at a computer, and general stress.
