Anna Jerstrom has studied yoga in England, Nepal, India and the US. She initially practiced a variety of styles, and realized that there were parts to each style that suited her body and purpose. She started studying under Susannah Hoffman, a British Wheel of Yoga teacher, in 2001. Susannah?s teaching method is inspired by the Viniyoga System with its one-to-one approach. During the 2 years Anna studied with her she learnt extensively about the art of yoga, both from the practical and spiritual dimension.
Anna also spent several months at a yoga ashram in Kathmandu, Nepal, where she studied Hatha yoga full-time.
Relocating to New York in September 2003, Anna qualified as a yoga teacher focusing on Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga. Anna practised Mysore Ashtanga under the guidance of Christopher Hildebrandt and she spent time in Mysore, India, practising with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy.
Currently based in Jaco, Costa Rica, Anna is using her Viniyoga approach to compliment her own and as well as her students passion for surfing. She can often be seen on the beach at sunrise saluting the first rays of the day.
Anna is available to teach individuals or small groups visiting Jaco. She can provide beautiful space or come to you for classes.
