A horrible cycling accident led Ali to start practising yoga….which led to her new passion…everything happens for a reason, right?
Anna Smallwood was first introduced to yoga in 1998 as part of her intensive training as a professional Contemporary Dancer. She completed a Bachelor of Dance at the Victorian College of The Arts and always maintained her yoga practice while working as a dancer. Anna immediately fell in love with Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow practices, as they promote freedom through movement, yet unlike dance are driven by the breath.
Anna completed her yoga teacher training at Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India, with Julie Martin, in 2005. She has since returned to India many times to both teach at Brahmani Yoga and to deepen her own yoga practice.
Anna also teaches internationally on Brahmani Yoga and Shakti Spirit, Yoga Alliance teacher training programs in Bali and Goa. She often leads retreats in India, Bali and Australia.
Today, Anna’s classes are inspired by her love of dance, movement and music, as well as the joy of tapping into moments of stillness and spaciousness, and really listening to what arises from within that space.
