Meet Anabel

Founder & Program Director

Panamanian-born with a unique blend of Chinese and Ngobe indigenous heritage, it wasn’t until she left her country to pursue a degree in Environmental Engineering in Florida, that Anabel would find her true home, unexpectedly, in yoga. That was over ten years ago, when Vinyasa Yoga was Anabel’s first real exposure to the practice of yoga asana, reminiscent of her early experience with eastern traditions of meditation as part of her martial arts training as a teenager.

In 2007, on a trip to New York, upon the recommendation of a friend, Anabel took a class from Sri Dharma Mittra at his studio in Manhattan. And as she lay there in savasana, she knew her life would be forever changed. Sri Dharma instilled a spark in Anabel’s heart that grows with each passing day, and two years after her first savasana in his studio, she flew to Barcelona to be trained as a yoga instructor by her beloved teacher. In that moment in Manhattan, in savasana with her teacher, Anabel was home.

Hannah Marshall, UK

Spending 3 weeks in Costa Rica learning how to be a yoga teacher with YRA was such a fulfilling, rewarding and fun experience. Not only did I learn and expand my knowledge of the asanas and how to teach them but also gained so much more confidence and understanding of how yoga can be brought into day to day life.

Anabel is not only an amazing instructor but a genuine and beautiful person, both inside and out. I am so glad I chose her training and was lucky enough to learn from the wealth of knowledge she has to share. I will be forever grateful for her inspiration and encouragement!
