    Katchie Ananda, E-RYT 500

    Yoga and dharma teacher

    Katchie Ananda is an internationally recognized yoga and dharma teacher whose leadership in yoga and social change prompted Yoga Journal to name her one of five top yoga teachers making change in the world.

    Katchie has over 20 years of experience as a full-time yoga teacher and trainer, and is certified in Anusara, Jivamukti, Integral, and Ashtanga vinyasa yoga. A dedicated student of Vipassana meditation, Katchie has studied with Jack Kornfield, her Buddhist mentor, for over 15 years.

    A former dancer in Switzerland and Brazil, she moved to New York City in 1990 where she studied yoga with Sharon Gannon and David Life at Jivamukti Yoga Center. Deeply inspired by their creativity, activism, and commitment to nonviolence, Katchie dedicated herself to Jivamukti Yoga and taught there for many years, eventually as a senior teacher. There, she was introduced to the devotional path of Bhakti Yoga, and began her lifelong practice of chanting.

    Katchie also got involved with Integral Yoga Institute, where she taught, worked, and participated in ashram life under the guidance of Sri Swami Satchidananda. To further her skill as a teacher, she studied the technical refinement of asanas with Kevin Gardiner in the tradition of B.K.S. Iyengar.

    Katchie was the cofounder and director of Yoga Sangha in San Francisco, and offers workshops, trainings, and retreats in Europe and the United States. Her home base is Santa Fe, New Mexico.
