Anna, wholeheartedly, believes in the power of yoga to transform one’s life in all aspects: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Her personal practice helped her feel whole. Recognizing yoga’s healing ability, Anna began her 250-hour Foundational Vinyasa teacher training in Philadelphia at Wake Up Yoga Studio in order to be able to encourage others to find their own path towards presence utilizing yoga and mindfulness skills. While she was studying yoga, Anna received a Master’s Degree in Public Health at Drexel University. There, she studied trauma- sensitive yoga extensively. Anna works as a full-time yoga teacher and supports a non-profit organization, Transformation Yoga Project, which brings yoga and mindfulness to individuals in recovery and within the criminal justice system. Her teaching style of yoga is a blend of Yin (Passive/Restorative) and Yang (Active Vinyasa) to cultivate a deep connection and understanding of one’s body, breath, mind and spirit and find balance. Currently, Anna is also pursuing her Yoga Therapy Certification.
