Anica started her yoga journey 10 years ago after the birth of her second child. As a runner, she found
that adding yoga and weight training brought balance to her routine. She gravitated towards yoga especially because she found that practicing it gave her an opportunity to focus on mental as well as
physical health. After practicing for many years, Anica desired to learn more and share her practice by
becoming a teacher. While stationed overseas, Anica had the opportunity to complete her 200 HR CYT
by attending trainings in Italy and Germany. She had the opportunity to bring Yoga to a military community in Germany where it was previously unavailable. Anica is excited to become a part of the Concrete Yoga community and looks forward to learning and growing as a teacher here!

Suffering from low back pain for over 12 years, Haley tried everything to alleviate the pain. Later she was diagnosed with a herniated disc. In 2014, Haley began CrossFit to help her lose weight and after losing about 30 pounds, her symptoms did not improve. Her coach encouraged her to try yoga. What began as a way to alleviate pain, quickly developed into a way to relieve stress; her husband’s second deployment, an autism diagnosis for her oldest son & sinus surgery for her youngest son; all while living in Germany, away from family. Yoga changed her life in every way, from healing past trauma to lowering her blood pressure. Haley doesn’t only have a passion for the overall health benefits of yoga, but in teaching and encouraging others to better their own health and wellness.
