ANITA

vinyasa teacher

bio:

Anita did her first teacher training at Atma Center in Budapest where she learned a more traditional view of yoga and got introduced to the ISKCON philosophy. Later, Anita took a proper vinyasa-focused 300h course in India. Therefore, her classes carefully merge these two aspects of yoga.

Anita is also an academic scholar. Her main research interest is electronic music cultures and scenes. That’s the reason why you can also listen to a finely selected track list during her classes.

In March 2018 he decided to deepen his knowledge with a Hatha and Ashtanga teacher training in India and since then he teaches regularly dynamic vinyasa yoga classes in Berlin.

ANNA

vinyasa teacher

bio:

Anna, originally from New York, began an independent study of yoga philosophy and the self in her early twenties in Berlin. Shortly after she began practicing at High on Yoga, in 2015. On this continuous journey of learning, she has learned the usefulness of a strong, energizing (sthira), and yet light (sukha), asana practice and a healthy conditioning of the body for achieving a deeper state of meditation and of YOGA.

In 2019, Anna completed her teacher training at HOY, continuing with a mentorship program and independent study in Southern India in 2020. One should expect both to sweat, and to chant, concentrate, meditate, and deeply relax in Anna’s classes, as well as to learn new perspectives on asana and life.

Anna is also a PhD student of history and will receive her doctorate in 2020.
