Anna Hunt is a RYT200 Yoga Alliance certified instructor and a graduate of the Marianne Wells Yoga School. Her passion for yoga began nearly 15 years ago when her fast-paced corporate career was bringing increasingly more stress into her life. After 11 years of practice, she wanted to deepen her personal practice and decided to explore yoga teacher training. This brought her to Iyangar-trained Marianne Wells, who taught her that understanding her students’ individual needs will help them find a deeper peace and self acceptance. She teaches yoga, locally at Colinas Del Sol. Find more information about Anna and her class schedule, at Atenas Yoga. She is also a writer and co-editor of Waking Times, a provocative and inspirational news blog, and the co-owner of OffgridOutpost.com, an online store offering healthy storable food and other emergency supplies.
