Anna Davis, PhD RYT


Anna was first introduced to yoga by her mother, a student of T.K.V. Desikachar, when she was 15. She has practiced many different forms of yoga on and off for 30 years.

Anna studies yoga with Ana Forest and several local instructors and is inspired by many teachers and students alike. Anna has a doctorate in Physiology and Biophysics, has taught Physiology at the University of Washington and helped develop software to teach cell physiology (NerveWorks). Her scientific research has focused on muscle physiology, structure and development. Anna is a long-time student and teacher of yoga.  Currently she spends her days teaching Physiology to the first year naturopathic medical students at Bastyr University in Seattle. She is the mother of two girls and lives in Ballard.

Anna brings to her classes a love of movement, sensitivity to her students' different needs, an attention to detail and clear style of communication. She finds great satisfaction sharing the practice of yoga with others, a path that she believes helps us to awaken and live graciously in the present moment.
