Anna has been inspired by yoga since the late ‘80s, rising at dawn to practice yoga with the television, reading esoteric yogic texts late into the night and traveling to exotic yoga retreat centers. It was later when she was confronted with the question, “What is my purpose?” that she realized any choice she made would be enhanced by the benefits of yoga. She entered yoga training in 2000 under the guidance of Daren Friesen of Moksa Yoga Center. There she encountered many phenomenal teachers and developed an interdisciplinary approach to her yoga style. Anna honors as her principal teachers: Ana Forrest, Sarah Powers , Srivatsa Ramaswami, her personal practice guru and many students. She is currently apprenticing with Gabriel Halpern of Yoga Circle Chicago. Vipassana meditation and chanting are two vital elements of Anna’s spirituality.
She has been teaching yoga in the Oak Park area and Chicago for eight years. Simplicity, mindfulness and transformation capture the alchemy and spirit of her classes.
