Anayra Calderon

Anayra's love of Yoga began when she was an undergraduate student at Seton Hall University where she double majored in Religious Studies and English. After taking a Zen and Yoga class Anayra knew that yoga was something that she would pursue. Anayra went on to receive a master's degree in English Literature and to also become certified in both Yoga and Pilates instruction in 2003.

Anayra completed her initial 200 hour yoga teacher training with The Yoga Institute and continued to pursue her study of yoga with Anusara founder John Friend completing over 100 hours of training with him and over 200 hours of training with seniorAnusara teachers Jackie Prete and Doug Keller.

She has received her Pilates training from Jonathan Urla and is also certified to teach Yogilates. Anayra deepened her knowledge of yoga and therapy by completing a Thai Yoga Therapist program in Santa Barbara with renowed Thai Yoga teacher Saul David Raye.

Anayra has a true love of teaching. When she isn't teaching yoga and pilates, she is a high school English teacher in Jersey City. She has also developed yoga and pilates programs for at-risk teenagers. She is currently working on her second master's degree in education. Anayra is grateful to all of her teachers, past and present and for those still to come.
This class combines the physicality of power yoga; the creative flow of vinyasa; adding attention to alignment, fun and philosophy. This is a strong, challenging class with variations offered for strong beginners. Learn how to take your practice seriously, but yourself lightly.
