Testimonials for Anna's Movement Classes
"As someone new to yoga, I found Anna’s instructions for the poses were easy to follow and very helpful. She helped me feel better in so many ways! She’s so knowledgeable and careful- making sure you don’t get hurt when you do your yoga poses and stretches. As a physician specializing in psychiatry I know well how exercise and meditation are crucial for your health. This is why in addition to prescribing medications for my patients with anxiety and depression , I routinely recommend mindfulness and yoga as complementary treatment. The mindful movement class that Anna offers is perfect for this. It’s great for self-care and excellent for anxiety and depression. I love this class at the end of my work day. You just feel so calm and refreshed afterwards. I love her and I highly recommend working with her!” ~ Great Falls, VA
"Anna is a wonderful yoga teacher who takes the time to understand one's abilities and health concerns in order to offer a highly tailored approach for individual yoga practise. As her student, I really look forward to my classes where I am encouraged with kind words and we together explore doing the asanas that are increasingly challenging. I truly wish I had met Anna earlier in my life and started this journey a long time ago. I have been telling anyone who'll listen to me about Anna and the yoga classes and she comes strongly recommended." ~ Ram P., Oakton VA
