She encourages her students to work honestly at their edges, incorporating long holds with a calm intensity and focus on alignment. Anna has been passionate about fitness her entire life. She began her yoga practice in late 2000 with Hatha and hot power yoga classes while training for her second-degree black belt in tae kwon-do. As she competed in other athletic endeavors such as tennis, marathons and triathlons, she saw the great benefits of yoga, not only to aid in range of motion and injury prevention but also to strengthen the mind and live authentically.
She is currently teaching public and private yoga classes and co-owns tanya-b, an urban yoga lifewear company.
