Profile and Credentials        

Hi, I'm Ana. I began teaching in 1984. I have studied under Gary Kraftsow, T.K.V. Desikachar, and Sonia Nelson, among others. In 2006, I became certified as a teacher/mentor by the Krishnamacharya Healing and Yoga Foundation, www.khyf.net in Chennai, India.

I have long studied natural and herbal healing including the Indian Science of Ayurveda and am a Certified Natural Health Consultant.

Since 1998 I've studied and practiced Yoga Sutras and Vedic Chant with Sonia Nelson, Director of the Vedic Chant Center, in Santa Fe, NM. www.vedicchantcenter.org.

Philosophy and Comments        

Health is more than the absence of disease. When we are healthy we are loving, kind, joyful and full of vibrant energy. The Practice of Yoga, while enhancing our vitality, also helps us to be more aware of our unconscious habits of body and mind. With this awareness of ourselves it becomes much easier to make the changes we desire in all areas of our lives.

"If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy,

And life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet scented herbs,

Is more elastic, more starry, more immortal,

- that is your success! -

All nature is your congratulations,

and you have reason, momentarily, to Bless yourself."

Henry David Thoreau

Vedic Chant        

Chanting is one of the most transformative and nonsectarian spiritual practices, especially since it almost immediately takes us out of our heads and beyond the mind, into realms of sound, joy and calm.
For those interested in learning to chant the Vedas, private lessons are available to groups or individuals. I have been studying and practicing Vedic Chant for over fifteen years. The classical teaching of Vedic Chant is rigorous and requires full concentration. I find this practice to be very uplifting. It is strengthening and clarifying for the body, mind and spirit.

Private Lessons        

There are certain times when private instruction could be more useful than attending a class with many others. If you have not studied with Ana, and if you are a beginning yoga student, you are advised to take a private lesson before beginning classes. If you have special considerations or would prefer not to be in a group class, a series of private lessons can be arranged. In fact, the tradition in Yoga is for each student to be taught privately so that the student can be observed and given individual attention by the teacher. The practice of yoga is very personal, and will naturally not be the same for any two people as we are individually unique. So, even for those who do not have health concerns or special considerations, I recommend that you can go further in your yoga practice with private lessons either instead of, or in addition to group classes. Call me to talk about the structure and rewards of learning privately.

Live Video classes        

Occasionally, I'll be presenting a Live Video Class, including Vedic chant, asanas and pranayamas- sometimes I will be chanting and teaching Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. If you want to see the live video, Go to Heart Space Yoga on Face Book. This series is live Saturdays at 8 a.m. Central time on the Face Book page, Heart Space Yoga. "Like" the page to get notices. This is a free presentation from Ana. Namaste!
