Anna Levesque

Yoga has enhanced Anna’s life and career as a professional whitewater kayaker and stand up paddle boarder for over 18 years. Whether she’s teaching yoga as part of her whitewater kayaking and yoga trips in Costa Rica and Nepal, on her paddle board teaching SUP yoga classes or in the studio, Anna creates a calm space for her students to nurture awareness of their bodies and minds for alignment, health and healing. She graduated from AYC’s 230 hour TT in 2010 and is working toward her 500 hour certification. In 2011 she produced the DVD, Yoga for Kayaking, in collaboration with Joe Taft that has sold over 1500 copies. Anna maintains a strong daily home practice that includes asana, pranayama and meditation, and is deeply connected to nature through kayaking, paddle boarding and her path on the Red Road.
