From a very young age Anna was extremely curious and knew there was something much more to life…but what? As a child growing up something always felt out of place for Anna and not quite “right”. A disconnection where there should be a connection. After years of struggle, Anna began to experiment with alcohol and drugs because this gave her a sense of a connection, a state of flow. After a struggle with drug addiction for nearly a decade, Anna came to yoga as a means to deepen her understanding of herself in order to maintain her overall well-being. After years of studying a western medical/psychological approach of addictions and biological chemistry, there seemed to be something missing that modern science just didn’t cover. And she found it with yoga, the spiritual aspect. Yoga, along with eastern spirituality and ancient sciences seemed to fill that gap and allowed Anna to uncover that connection between existing and being. A means to unfold the deeper levels of being and to have a conscious connection with herself, Anna began immersing herself in the ancient science of Yoga.
While working on her pre medical sciences in 2015 Anna combined yoga with her recovery. In 2015 Anna decided to take a break from pre medical sciences so she could enroll in a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Prairie Yoga Institute to learn more about yoga. In 2018 Anna began coming to Moksha Yoga Center after hearing about their 12-step recovery yoga classes. Developing the daily discipline of yoga on and off the mat with the intention of yoga being THE lifelong practice. Combining the yogic principles and spirituality along with her personal experiences of recovery Anna hopes to challenge students with new ideas and concepts leaving students feeling balanced and enlivened after her class.
“To me recovery is NOT just about overcoming a drug or alcohol problem. Recovery to me means “to return” to a state of balance. To have the WANT to learn and overcome our fears. To better ourselves as individuals and turn whatever fears we have into excitement! To be excited to learn, grow, and change, that’s exciting to me!” ~Anna
