As one of few ashtangayoga-teachers

authurized by Pattabhi Jois’s son Manju Pattabhi Jois,

Anna is dedicated to pass forward this ancient tradition in it’s pure form. 

A warm, and joyous atmosphere is an important ingredient in her teachings


Anna was born 1985 in the USA  and raised in Sweden. She used to be a fashion designer with dreams to commit fulltime to yoga and because dreams do come true that’s now what she is doing with her whole heart.

For over 10 years she has been a student of Ashtanga yoga and feel blessed to have found this practice so early in her life. This practice that at first seemed just as a good exercise, turned out to give her a sense of peace and strenght beyond what she thought was possible. That is what made her dedicate her life to this practice and since 5 years back she also works as a teacher.

Anna has had the opportunity to study with many great teachers, and for more than five years she consider Manju Pattabhi Jois her main teacher and inspiration. Anna has completed several teacher trainings and workshops with Manju, and also studies with him in Encinitas for longer periods every winter.  In 2012 Manju gave Anna his blessing and authorizaton to teach.

2010 Anna opened Myoga, a yogastudio in Jönköping where she teaches traditional Ashtanga Yoga and where she also has been hosting Manju among other teachers. One year later she opened a branch in Habo.

A warm, and joyous atmosphere is an important ingredient in Anna’s teachings so that a deep learning both physically and mentally can take place.

Anna does popular retreats and will soon launch two DVD movies on traditional Ashtangayoga.

Anna will hold 1 retreat in YIS in 2016
