Teacher Feature: Anu Sawkar

Favorite part of teaching yoga?

I love being there when someone has a yoga epiphany – those special moments in your practice when everything clicks and the seemingly impossible becomes possible.

Where did you grow up?

Cleveland, OH

What are your top 3 hobbies?

Cooking, hiking, and reading.

Favorite food?

Mangoes and raspberries. All berries really. Actually, all fruit.

Dream vacation or favorite vacation you’ve ever been on?

I love traveling! In the past few years, we’ve gone to India, Nepal, Argentina, Antarctica, the Galapagos, Costa Rica, Belize, and Guatemala. I’ve never been to Africa, so hopefully that is next.

Favorite yoga pose and why?

I love back bends of all flavors.. They make me feel open and energized.

Favorite holiday?

I love birthdays. They remind us to celebrate our friends and family.

If you could take a yoga class from any teacher in the world (living or dead), who would it be?

I would love to have been able to study with Sri Krishnamacharya.
