On returning to New Zealand 8 years ago Anna started teaching yoga here in the dairy co-op building. Anna loves to impart the joy of practicing yoga in her classes. She enjoys to playfully challenge her students and incorporate breath-led-movement. She seeks to impart the meaning of yoga - "To bring about union/ unity/ balance" through her classes - balancing stability with flexibility, strength with softness, active doing and passive letting go. Thus encouraging a practice which is both enlivening, centring and calming.
