Pranayama_AnnHello, my name is Ann Wagoner, and I’ll be the Introduction to Herbal Medicine instructor in PCC's Functional Nutrition program, with a focus on Ayurveda and TCM.

I have researched Ayurvedic herbs and treatments for the prevention of Cancer recurrence with the Mount Madonna Institute College of Ayurveda. I am a member the National Ayurvedic Medical Association, Yoga Alliance and the International Association of Yoga Therapists. I have a Master’s in Ayurveda and am a Board Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner. I also love Yoga Therapy. I bring together Ayurveda and Yoga, two sister sciences, to expand understandings of mind, body and consciousness. I also have a B.A. in Philosophy from Earlham College, and a M.A. in Liberal Studies from New York University.

Currently leading the herbal research with the Banyan Cancer Prevention & Maintenance Program, I am excited to see results with Cohort One. I serve on the Ethics Committee with the National Ayurvedic Medical Association. I am President of the Oregon Yoga and Ayurveda Association. The school I founded, the Center for Ayurveda and Yoga Study, is recognized by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

I am honored to have been able to study with many Doctors of Ayurveda from India and Nepal (BAMS), including Vasant Lad,  R. H. Singh, Sarita Shrestha, Vivek Shanbhag, Hari Pallathery, P.H. Kulkarni, John Douillard and Shekhar Annambhotla among others. I have also studied yoga and Patanjali’s yoga sutras extensively with Rama Jyoti Vernon, Divine Yogini & international Woman of Vision. I was trained in the ISHTA style of yoga with Alan Finger in New York City and with Sraddha at 7 Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona. I currently teach Yoga at the Sol Center and at Portland Community College. And I offer Ayurvedic consultations via Zoom.

In addition to having taught Ayurvedic workshops at Portland Therapeutic Yoga, Yoga Pearl, The Movement Center, Harmony Yoga, NUNM, Bastyr, Clark College, Belmont Yoga, University of Portland School of Nursing, Opening to Life and Yoga Bhoga; I have  taught healthy Ayurvedic Cooking Classes at People’s Food Co-op. My Ayurvedic recipes are based on locally grown food in the Pacific Northwest from the 47th Avenue Farm. I love cooking and weaving together the arts of herbs, movement, meditation and food.
