Anahata Yoga Studio: a loving, nurturing, friendly, peaceful, safe, and fun environment to learn 


Everybody always says a yoga training is transformative. But you don't really know what that means until you do it. Since I started the Anahata Training I lost 12 Ibs. I am eating healthier and finally taking care of my health issues... and made me realize I have to overcome some bad habits...The accountability towards the teacher training group helped me to achieve that. I could not be happier that I took this training! Everybody should... it is a life training!

This is my second time taking the Anahata Teacher Training. It is even more rich than the first time! Reviewing the asanas, adjustments, and spiritual philosophy of yoga in this loving small group has been amazing! Ana and the other teachers are so passionate and knowledgeable... Every session has been exciting and inspiring. I feel very supported in my practice and development. I am so glad i decided to take the training again and am deeply grateful for this sanctuary and community. The Anahata teacher training is deeply soulful! This studio walks the talk! A.C., Encinitas

This YTT is fun, loving and rewarding! Ana has such an understanding of alignment and such a wonderful approach with how to touch a student, so they can learn to help shift an old pattern, be it physical, mental or even spiritual. I love the warmth and sharing and also the sacred space that she brings with her teaching skills in her TT classes." D.S., Encinitas

I took the Anahata Teacher Training 7 years ago and had to drop out after the first month for personal and family reasons. Returning a second time, I'm feeling at home with what is being presented and practiced... it's a welcoming, uplifting and healing partnership with the other YTT students...
