"Yoga has always been there for me when I needed it the most. Through every heartbreak and difficult times in my life, yoga has been there to keep me focused and balanced in my mind, body and soul. My goal is to share my passion for yoga to others, especially those who want to find peace and harmony while being guided through a physical workout. I will make sure to guide you through a practice that will have you feeling rejuvenated and balanced. "-Anna
