Anna was introduced to Ashtanga nearly six years ago while living and working as a pottery teacher (and Canadian ex-pat) in Baltimore, Maryland. The challenge and focus of the practice immediately drew her and the remarkable changes that impacted her daily life encouraged Anna to make her first trip to Mysore in 2010. She continues to travel to India regularly to study with R. Sharath and Saraswathi Jois, and in June 2012 moved to Greenwich, Connecticut where she spent the last year and a half learning and assisting under Authorized and Certified teachers at Jois Yoga. In 2013, Anna was given the blessing of Level 2 Authorization by The Shri K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. Anna believes in the transformative power of Ashtanga and is eager to share the practice and witness the evolution of others on this journey.
