Ananda is a special teacher and unlike any other that I have had the privilege to study under. Her passion for yoga is evident in everything that she does and she walks a path of truth and understanding. Her classes are taught with a clear and thorough understanding of the body so that her students can have a fully visceral experience without the distraction of the chattering mind. She is able to weave themes into the practice in such a way that it enhances the asana and yet gives a deeper understanding to yoga as a whole. The thought and preparation that goes into her classes and the dedication she has to her studies means that she is ever evolving as a teacher and forever in service to her students.
