"Our vision is to be a recognizable symbol of health and peace inspiring positive transformation in oneself and in our community."
 - Jean Marie & Katrina, Anasa Yoga Vision Statement, 2011

Sometimes you get it right the first time! I'm so grateful for our community, and of the transformative work that we witness each week at Anasa.  It's exactly what we envisioned 8 summers ago when Katrina, Crystal, and I sat down to plan what the studio would eventually become.

We continue to grow and change each year as we listen & learn from the Student's needs and the Teacher's needs as well.  And, starting July 1, there will be a few more changes on the days, times, and classes, but the same community space we've grown to love.  Stay tuned for details next month.
Check out our announcements and offerings below. Please pre-register for weekend events at to take advantage of EARLY BIRD PRICING and help us plan in advance for our amazing line-up of holistic workshops and events!
Blessings to All,
Jean Marie
