Anne subsequently completed an additional training and apprenticeship in yoga therapeutics with bio-psychologist Bo Forbes, PsyD as well as an additional assistantship with 30+ year veteran Iyengar Yoga teacher Genny Kapuler. Anne also completed an advanced training with the TKV Desikachar trained yoga therapist, Guta Hedwig, as well as a 9 month yoga anatomy training with Leslie Kaminoff at The Breathing Project.
