In the Hindu religious tradition, ?nanda signifies eternal bliss, understood to be at very core of the human experience. Yoga is a practice aiming at conscious union with this blissful foundation of our being (Sat-Chit-Ananda). As such, yoga has been part of Ananda’s life from the time of her conception; however, she has been teaching yoga for 10 years, and practicing many more. Ananda is a dedicated SmartFLOW certified teacher and teacher trainer, who is known to teach with humour, grace, and technical precision. As a former yoga studio owner, Ananda cultivated community and culture of teaching and practice with the SmartFLOW methodology. Through many years of love and hard work, she instilled an indelible sense of curiosity and awareness in her teachers and students. Her dedication to the process and practice of yoga continues to remind us that life is in state of constant change. She believes yoga is deep listening, an act of physical and mental attuning, which increases the possibility for personal change. Yoga allows for a greater range of movement, so we might be able to adapt and grow in harmony with the moment. Ananda continues to study and apprentice with her beloved teacher Annie Carpenter.
