ADDIE JO BANNERMAN . PRANA PUMP CREATOR . YOGA TEACHER . ARTIST . WRT MALA DESIGNER .
Growing up with a mother who was a personal trainer, the gym was Addie Jo's playground. After school, she went to the gym and hung out with her mother and the body builders who taught her at a very young age how to safely lift weights and effectively work out the body. As Addie Jo grew, so did her passion for fitness, diet, and a healthy lifestyle. After receiving her Power Yoga certification from Tamal Dodge, she began determined to find the right balance between weight lifting, HIIT (or High Intensity Interval Training) and yoga. This is when she developed Prana Pump. Prana Pump is an energetic combination of HIIT, weight lifting, and yoga while also incorporating longer holds of Yin stretches towards the end of class. In Prana Pump, your body is taken through an intense Yin and Yang practice. With fun, upbeat playlists, Prana Pump is where you sweat, work hard, and have fun all while speeding up the heart rate and metabolism. Leaving class you will feel exhilarated and powerful.
Addie Jo is also a painter and jewelry artist who creates Malas, also known as Tibetan prayer beads. Malas create a strong foundation for a meditation practice. Addie Jo is thrilled to be the creator of the White Rabbit Mala.
