Name a peak experience in your life. How did it impact you?
I grew up in the Midwest and often felt the tension of a mold I thought I had to fill, while simultaneously knowing it wasn't what I was meant to be. A small dream within the big ones was to someday live by the ocean and become a surfer (I may have obsessed over Blue Crush just a bit). After a year of living in Portland, I was able to take surfing lessons, caught some baby waves and loved it! It resembled to myself, the resiliency I possessed to fully step into the life that I have always wanted to build and learning that it's worth navigating the obstacles along the way to get there.
What's it like working out with you?
Intentional movement is a core value of mine and I devote time and metal energy to ensure that I make it a priority. Members of our community can expect an affirming environment that is encouraging and free of judgement. I like to recognize each client’s individualized growth and potential with positive reinforcing while ensuring that technique is never lost. As a trainer, I want to help break down any barriers that prohibit people from finding ways to move their bodies. Let’s find movements that work for your body. I’m excited to encourage you and see your accomplishments!

She takes an educative approach to training, teaching you both what to do and why it’s important. Adriana enjoys working with folks who are fat-identified, need trauma-informed care, are new to exercise, and are less comfortable in a traditional gym environment.
When is the environment you strive to create at Sweet Mo? What’s your training style?
I want to create an environment where everyone feels cared for enough to feel joy in moving their body, where no one is afraid to ask questions about how or why to do an exercise or to ask for something different that best serves their body that day or that moment.
I approach training as an observer, a researcher, and a helper- I watch how you move, I ask you how it feels in your body and I help teach you how do move your body in the best ways for you and what your needs are.
Train with Adriana in our Small Group sessions on Tuesday and Thursday at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Schedule a new client consultation to get started.
Anna Antic, yoga instructor Credentials and Interests
Anna Antic is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) who has completed
- 200-hour yoga instructor training
- continuing education in trauma-informed methodology
- Curvy Yoga certification (yoga for people with bigger bodies)
She has experience working with folks of all ages, people living with chronic illnesses, and people recovering from severe injuries and accidents.
What is the environment you strive to create at Sweet Mo? What’s your training style?
My expertise comes from being someone who, once upon a time, hated and misunderstood yoga. I didn’t see my working class, queer, punk self in the images of yoga I saw in the media, and I thought it had nothing to offer me. I was compelled (to put it mildly) to try yoga in the early days of my recovery and, despite all my best efforts to resist it, it became the backbone of my healing process.
In my classes, I always strive to create refuge for people – to provide a warm, welcoming place to be exactly who you are in the present moment. This includes the less-than-awesome moments, too. If you need a shoulder to lean on or ears to listen, I’m here for you. My training style is less a style than a guiding system. I share movement and alignment to keep bodies healthy and safe. But my true goal is to get out of the way of learning and help folks discover their innate intelligence.
Take yoga with Anna as part of our Small Group Training program on Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. She also offers personal yoga instruction.
To get started, please schedule a new client consultation (please mention yoga when you register for your consultation).
