East Meets West Yoga Center

Anna Jackson

Anna first found yoga and Reiki in her early twenties while living in Vermont. Both modalities helped to bring more balance into her life as she dealt with making big life decisions. She moved to the Washington, DC area to attend graduate school and has lived here for the last thirteen years. While working as a special education teacher in the public school system Anna began to deal with some chronic health issues. She returned to her yoga practice to help bring more balance into her life. In 2015 she left her teaching job to focus on her physical, mental, and emotional health and completed her initial yoga teacher training.
Anna completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher training in July 2015 at JOURNEYoga in Arlington, VA. After completing her initial yoga training in Vinyasa Flow, she sought out additional training in Restorative Yoga with Jillian Pransky and Yin Yoga with Jo Phee and Indira Kate Kalmbach. While teaching yoga over the last four years Anna continued to look and explore other healing modalities. She found her Reiki master, Jessica Mahler, while taking workshops in Washington, DC and at East Meets West. Anna completed her Reiki Mastership with Jessica in September 2019.
