Ann Pizer, RYT

Yoga Teacher, Writer




Tufts University, University of Texas, Austin



Ann Pizer is a former writer for Verywell Fit covering yoga. She began doing yoga in 2002 as an antidote to the stress of living in post-9/11 New York City. Though she was neither particularly flexible nor fond of group exercise, she quickly found herself hooked and has been sustained by her practice ever since.

Ann became a registered yoga teacher in 2004 upon the completion of a 200-hour teacher-training course at Atmananda Yoga in New York. She also trained in prenatal yoga at YogaWorks. She has taught vinyasa/flow and prenatal yoga classes and has written about yoga for over ten years.


Ann holds a bachelor of arts degree in art history and archaeology from Tufts University and a master of fine arts in studio art from the University of Texas at Austin, in addition to her yoga training.
