For nearly 20 years, Anna Kolacny has been studying eastern religion and philosophy. Her first exploration of yoga happened when she was 15 yrs old in the wooded hills outside of northwest Chicago. Having no teacher to guide her except an old poster written in Sanskrit, it wouldn't be until many years later that Anna would be able to experience the real power of the practice. In 2001, while living in Los Angeles, Anna suffered a minor neck injury and turned to yoga for relief. Shortly afterwards, she discovered the therapeutic benefits of Anusara Yoga. Quickly she recognized her own transformation as she not only healed the outer body, but started to heal the inner self. Yoga was the link that aligned the mind and body.
|This journey of discovery and growth has taken Anna to different parts of the globe as she continues to deepen her understanding of this ancient practice. For the last 10 years, Anna has devotedly spent thousands of hours with senior level Anusara teachers, including Anusara Certification board member Noah Maze and Anusara founder, John Friend. Anna attributes her current wave of enrichment to the beauty of her Philosophy and Meditation teachers Carlos Pomeda, Sally Kempton (Swami Durgananda) and Shrividya Shakta Tantric Scholar, Douglas Brooks.
Over the years, Anna has also had the fortunate to train with many delightful teachers throughout India, the US and the world. But it has been the spirit and community of Anusara that has helped bring Anna to her deepest heart.
As an Anusara-InspiredTM teacher, Anna energetically combines her extensive background in health, nutrition and yoga philosophy to create an environment that allows students to discover and nurture the self while deepening and refining their physical yoga practice. Her classes are dynamic and playful and challenge both the mind and body. Presently, Anna travels and teaches primarily around Asia. To see her full schedule, click here.
