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.

Yoga Revolution Academy is as much a journey for the soul as it is a journey to become a teacher. I was amazed at how much my practice deepened, and truly humbled by the personal transformation that occurred in just 3 short weeks.
