Anna Hughes

When Anna Hughes first started studying yoga in college, it seemed a natural progression from the dance she studied and adored for the first eighteen years of her life. Anna completed her 500-hour Bikram teacher training in 2002, and began teaching full time immediately. Since that time, Anna has explored Ashtanga Yoga extensively, studying with the wonderful David Swenson as well as Todd Roderick, one of the Southeast’s most renowned Ashtanga Yoga instructors. It was in 2003 when she began studying Bhakti Flow with Rusty Wells that she was truly introduced to the idea of integrating the physical and spiritual practices of yoga and her teaching has evolved to embrace this concept.Anna’s study of various systems of yoga has led her to a greater understanding of yoga as a whole. In her own teaching, she emphasizes a connection with the breath as well as mindfulness, contentment and a healthy sense of humor. Her experience with yoga has inspired her to infuse her teaching with the idea of finding joy in one’s practice while challenging the body, mind, and spirit. Her vinyasa classes are vigorous and playful, creatively sequenced, and always include a great soundtrack.

I’m Martin & I love yoga. I teach Vinyasa Yoga and every class based on Love, Compassion, Joy & Equanimity, verse 1.33 of The Yoga Sutras. This keeps me open and grounded so that the teaching comes through clearly. My classes are focused, fun and creative. No matter how challenging the practice may be, it only makes us better.

Who I am shows in every piece of my teaching. I am traditionally non-traditional. My classes are joyful, purposeful and intentional. I believe in the transformative powers of regular practice and see it as a one-way ticket to freedom and happiness. I love to laugh and play while still maintaining drishti. Yoga makes us happy!
