Forrest Yoga AssociateEmail:
Anita is a certified Forrest Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) after completing her training with Ana Forrest in May of this year.
With over 10yrs of personal practice, she has a passion for yoga, health and wellbeing.
Anita took her first yoga class back in 1997, and decided it wasn't for her, but after getting back on the mat in 2003, she hasn't looked back.
As a child, Anita studied ballet and in more recent years has balanced her yoga practice with Flamenco dancing, running, swimming and Pilates. A chronic running injury put her dreams of running the NYC marathon on hold and she was naturally drawn to a deeper yoga practice for its holistic healing benefits.
Anita has experienced different styles of yoga including, Ashtanga, Hatha, Yin, Power Yoga and Vinyasa Flow, however its the intelligent sequencing of a Forrest Yoga practice that resonates with her most and she is excited to be able to share this style of yoga with you.
Anita has attended workshops with Amy Ippoliti, YogaBeyond, Les Leventhal, Tiffany Cruikshank, John Ogilvie, Eion Finn & Simon Borg Olivier.
She has also completed training with Rainbow Kids Yoga and Global Family Yoga, earning her intermediate certification in Yoga Therapy for Children.
Anita is the volunteer coordinator for A Sound Life who takes music and yoga to hospitals, Aged Care Facilities, and childcare facilities for children with disabilities.
It is her dream to continue giving back to the community and volunteer teaching yoga to underprivileged children in Loiza, Puerto Rico with the Ricky Martin Foundation – another charity she is passionate about.Website:www.chikarayoga.com.au
