Annie Appleby is founder and designer of YogaForce. Working for Paramount Pictures back in the late 1980’s, she began taking lunch-time yoga classes on Paramount’s lot. Unable to find hip, comfortable yoga clothing, Annie started Yoga Force in 1995 and revolutionized the yoga apparel industry. Since then, her clothing has been featured in the television and film industry and carried by more than 150 retailers. In 2005, she created the patented YogaForce A-Line Mat. The mat’s alignment system aides in physical therapy, yoga, pilates, and all floor exercises guiding the body into proper positioning to maximize performance. Annie’s been teaching yoga privately since 1997 and also teaches in the San Francisco Bay Area at world-wide corporations such as Google, Oracle, and Stanford University. Ever aligning her professional experience and lifestyle with her entrepreneurial spirit, she most recently partnered with Carved Solutions, the esteemed, eco-friendly Vermont-based company.
