Owner of Yoga Mountain Center in Montpelier, Vermont, has been in love with yoga since taking her first yoga class in 1994.
Anjali Anjali’s practice blossomed from doing yoga on a small Southern Vermont farm in a one room cabin to teaching at a Burlington yoga studio. Passionate about sharing her love of yoga with others, she enrolled in Kripalu’s 200 hour teacher training, where she met Todd Norian, who later introduced her to Anusara Yoga.
Since then, she has trained and practiced with a wide variety of Anusara teachers, and has completed a comprehensive 200 hr. Anusara Yoga Teacher Training with Deb Neubauer. She has studied Rajanaka Tantric Philosophy with Douglass Brooks and Paul Muller-Ortega.
Anjali’s classes are powered by the beauty, potency, and alchemy of nature. Her sessions are both grounding and soul-lifting, guiding students to safely deepen their practice and open their hearts. Anjali lives in Montpelier, the best place to be! When she’s not teaching a yoga class or working at the studio, she can be found working her way up a mountain, tending her community garden plot, creating delights in her kitchen, or taking a long cat nap with her black cat Gattaca.
Anika is originally from San Diego, California and moved to Vermont five years ago. Her interest in health began as a teenager when she read a book relating to wellness she found in her parent’s house. She was immediately enthralled with the idea that we, as a people, could heal ourselves with proper nutrition, exercise, sun, fresh air and sleep. She would reference the book often and soon began searching for more information. Her first taste of yoga came from a book focusing on natural healing. There was a small section dedicated to yoga stretches, which she carefully read and executed on the living room floor. She’s been hooked ever since!
Anika has studied and practiced yoga passionately for seven years. She has trained with teachers from many yogic disciplines including Kripalu, Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Bikram. Instead of focusing on one distinct method of yoga, she chooses to embrace all yoga paths and teach from a collection of different styles. This gives her the ability to adapt classes for students of all abilities and interests.
In addition to yoga, Anika also is certified and enjoys teaching Pilates, stability ball, and aqua fitness.
