    Great for my back issues
    Anita's class is great and perfect for a beginner like myself. Has helped me greatly with my recovery from back surgery. Highly recommended for anyone with mobility problems. My surgeons are thrilled I'm taking yoga. And it's also enjoyable

    Awesome introduction to yoga!
    Anita was great- we ( my teenage daughter and I) did a private first yoga lesson to get introduced to the practice. Anita explained each pose - the how to do and health benefits. She also adjusted the difficulty of each pose to meet our capabilities. I plan to sign up for a group session with Anita that's starting in a couple of weeks based on the very positive first experience! Anita's a great teacher!

    Great Yoga Instructor!
    I had requested Anita's help with a private yoga session. She was wonderful. The postures were explained in detail and she helped understand how they work. I'm glad I could meet her and get her help. It would be helpful if a follow-up email or a list of names of the postures was provided so that it could be written down and practiced. I will definitely be seeking Anita's help in the coming months. Thank you, Ankita.

    Anita was tremendous. She was timely, organized, calm, kind, capable, and versatile. She responded gently to the differing needs of our diverse group and led us skillfully with easy directions thru multiple poses and some breath work. On a recent day, we found ourselves in need of a yoga teacher and despite her own unavailability, Anita found a teacher for us! She is generous in so many ways with her words and time, we would be blessed to hire her again. Thank you Anita! Tracy Wash, DC

    Anita structures her class to fit the immediate needs of her students. She explains all the yoga poses and provides options to suit how you are feeling at the moment. I I never leave without feeling challenged and accomplished.

Her approach and skills are second to none, and she's always looking to learn more. It is my pleasure to know her and I would recommend her yoga class to anyone who wants to learn more.....Namaste'

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have almost 40 years in the fitness business as an aerobic instructor, herbalist, and yoga instructor. I am certified by Yoga Alliance as an instructor and continuing education provider. Also MEd in education, with classroom and corporate experience.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been in the fitness industry since 1978 so I thought I was pretty fit physically but yoga encompasses so much more. When I immersed myself in a yoga practice, first of all, my aging body thanked me! No more grueling, pounding workouts that hurt my joints. Secondly, I found I was more relaxed, slept better, and had energy to deal with life's problems more calmly.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Choosing a yoga teacher is a matter of preference. Ask about the teacher's style, background, and affiliations. All registered yoga teachers through Yoga Alliance have to have at least 200 hours training. Most teachers will let you try out a class for free to see if their style fits with your expectations.
