Anna was first introduced to yoga while attending art school in Santa Fe NM in 2000. She began her yoga studies in 2004 and continues to enjoy learning new aspects of yoga therapy and wisdom training. She received her 200 and 500 hour yoga teacher certification through Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe NM.
Anna is a committed student of Tias Little with whom she studies therapeutic yoga with a focus on anatomy and physiology, yogic wisdom and Zen meditation. She has also studied yoga for women’s health with Surya Little and Linda Spackman and is certified in pre and post natal yoga. In addition to teaching yoga she was a licensed massage therapist for 10 years. Her education in anatomy and myofascial release, most specifically Anatomy Trains with Tom Meyers, have greatly impacted her knowledge and practice as a yoga teacher.
With skillful alignment and ample use of props Anna hopes to guide students towards a more open and peaceful place in their bodies and mind. Her classes are inspired by her daily journey through the rhythms of life and living in the human body. A typical class will include meditation, pranayama (breath work), and therapeutic asanas (postures) with the goal of becoming more mindful, grounded and aware of the inner workings of the body.
