Wonderful instructors. Lovely studio. Awesome mix of classes and events. So glad for Spirit of the Lake to have survived the pandemic and to be here for all of us figuring out this world.
Anna is a firm believer that the essence of yoga can serve as a guiding light for every living being, embracing the unique bodies and varied histories that they possess. Her classes invite students to explore the many questions we ask ourselves and the identities we assign ourselves, while bringing awareness to the ever-changing nature of this world. Integrating mindful, playful, and gentle tones, she encourages us all to stay curious, offering a variety of physical manifestations of traditional yoga poses and a safe forum where students may arrive exactly as they are.
Classical ballet training became interwoven with a steady yoga practice when Anna was a young teen, thanks to her wise mother's encouragement to seek a holistic approach to structural misalignments. Yoga, Ayurveda, and other modalities continue to guide her towards balance, contentment, and a more resilient approach to life's challenges. She integrates these practices into her everyday life which includes lots of gardening, cooking, reading, full time 'corporate' work, and full time dog-mom to her rescue pittie.
