Anna began attending yoga classes regularly at Bloom in 2005 as a way to relieve the physical and mental strains of a busy life as a corporate office manager. As she discovered both a practice and a community she loved, she left the corporate world and began studying yoga in earnest.
Consistent practice soon gave way to heightened mental clarity and emotional balance and it's there that Anna realized how a mindful yoga practice can be a tool for transformation.
After completing a 200-hour training in 2009, Anna pursued Yin yoga specialization with Paul and Suzee Grilley in 2010 and continues to study with Bernie Clark as her main Yin teacher. With a deep curiosity in weaving together Eastern and Western understandings of wellness, Anna actively studies Restorative and Gentle Yoga, biomechanics and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Her thoughtful, lighthearted and mindful classes include opportunities to cultivate ease through movement, building awareness through stillness.
She invites students to slow down, enjoy their practice as way of tuning in and supports individualizing each person’s journey toward well-being.
