Guiding Principles


Anamiva Yoga is a community of like-minded individuals across the world, growing interest in yoga therapy and providing lessons through an honest, evidence-informed, and person-centered lens.

Anamiva Yoga formed to spread awareness about yoga therapy and create a sustainable platform to reach out to students and those interested in learning more about yoga therapy and general yoga practices.

Anamiva Yoga strives to look at the whole individual and the Panchamaya Kosha Model - holistically creating sequences and practices based on Yoga Cikitsa and the Krishnamacharya lineage, all 8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga, and balance between flexibility and strength.

Anamiva Yoga cultivates curiosity and helps to guide the student through continual education, keeping in mind the different stages of life, to find their individual purpose and path.

Anamiva Yoga always maintains professional boundaries with our community and students, respecting the life and work of both teachers and individuals.

Anamiva Yoga fosters safety and trust with students through both transparency and confidentiality.

Anamiva Yoga promotes open-mindedness, educational discussions, and healthy skepticism to better look at all aspects and angles of a topic.

Anamiva Yoga embodies the shraddha (faith), compassion, and devotion to our service and relationship with our students no matter the fruits of the labor. As teachers we want to learn in synergy with our students.

Anamiva Yoga believes that student progress comes from continual practice, repetition, and the strength of the student/teacher relationship.

Anamiva Yoga supports teachers and practitioners from our yoga community through their teachings with friendliness and appreciation of collaborative knowledge and learning.
