Anna’s path in yoga started while completing her BA. She finished with an advanced major in Religion, mainly studying Buddhism and Hinduism.
She loved the yoga classes, but it was her personal practice that fueled her drive to go deeper into yoga. This is where she found her breath. It was the one thing that would stop her mind, calm her heart and fill her with good energy. Through yoga she found meditation. The kind people at The Shambhala Buddhist Meditation Center in Halifax patiently guided her. After university, she left Canada for about three years, residing mainly in South Korea. Her travels eventually lead her to India, where she completed a teacher-training course in the Yoga Vidya Dham Ashram. She also had the wonderful opportunity to study with David Swenson in a teacher-training course in the primary series in Ashtanga Yoga.
Anna is also a Registered nurse in Calgary. She works as a palliative home care coordinator.
Her classes emphasize flowing with the breath, developing grace in movement and meditation/awareness of thoughts. She challenges her students in a way that is manageable for their skill level. She focuses on a step-by-step process, to develop each student’s own practice of self-reflection and personal growth.
