“After the Four Day Intensive ended, nobody wanted to leave. Some people cried after our final OM. I put my face in my hands and felt melancholy. When I looked up and saw my crying friends, my eyes were moist. I got up and gave Anna a hug for eternal gratitude. Thank You Anna, you bring me to my deep heart inside! "

"At the time when I was taking yoga instruction with Anna, I was toward the latter part of a pretty
difficult time in my life. Because of a lot of emotional issues I was trying (often unsuccessfully) to deal with, I was battling pretty chronic anxiety attacks. The stress from work, of course wasn't helping. I took up yoga because of how much it helped to ground me and quiet that anxiety. It was the only thing at the time that made any real sense. Several years later, I still feel indebted to Anna from that experience. I could not recommend her more!"
- A.T. (Santa Monica, CA)
“On my first class, I already knew that Anna loves her students very much. From the first adjustment, I could see love in her eyes and I knew she was a good teacher. This made a profound impression on me. She taught me what it's like to be in the heart.. to be with nature.. to reveal each person.. to feel without having to express in words. ”
