Anne Desmond
Anne discovered yoga in 1995 and has been a dedicated student ever since. In 2001, she became a certified yoga teacher and began her endeavor to bring yoga to teenagers. To best serve her students, she continually attends workshops and conferences on yoga, mindfulness and resilience in education and has trained with Street Yoga, Little Flower Yoga, Vajra Yoga and Mindful Schools. Through Bent On Learning, she has taught yoga to over 200 middle and high school students and helps parents and teachers incorporate yoga at home and in the classroom to help teens face the many social, emotional and academic struggles they encounter throughout their adolescence.
Anne received a Bachelor of Science degree from Drexel University, and in a former life, worked in technology as a business analyst, project manager, and web and database developer.
