Anne Koza

E-RYT 500, YACEP, Anne is an adventurous and playful yogi at heart, Anne believes in the connecting power of yoga. Teaching since 2009, Anne leads with a desire to create a supportive space for her students to reconnect to themselves through being present in breath and to explore through mindful movement. She designs her sequences to be both challenging and rejuvenating. Deeply caring about the structural alignment of each pose, Anne first addresses the physicality, then layers in the subtle elements of the practice. With a degree in Biology and Psychology, Anne studied the impact of yoga on the mind and body and believes in yoga’s inherent value for holistic wellbeing. Anne received her 200HR from Back Bay Yoga, and her 500HR from Super Soul Farm led by Raghunath Cappo, where she spent a month living and learning at Radhanath Swami’s Govardhan Eco Village in Mumbai, India. Anne is a visiting faculty member at Kripalu, teaches classes and workshops around the Boston Area, and has hosted international retreats around the world. Anne knows that often times things don’t work out according to plan, but it’s in the discoveries we learn along the way we get to know the beauty of ourselves and the world. Anne has a cat named Charlie, a community garden plot she loves to dig in, and when traveling enjoys sitting with a cup of coffee in a corner cafe and just watching the world go by.
