Anna Bjärkvik - Personal Biography
Anna Bjärkvik was born in 1985 in the USA and raised in Sweden. She used to be a fashion designer with dreams to commit full time to yoga, and because dreams do come true, that is now what she is doing with her whole heart.
For over ten years, she has been a student of Ashtanga yoga and feels blessed to have found this practice so early in her life. This practice, which at first seemed like just good exercise, turned out to give her a sense of peace and strength beyond what she thought possible. That is what made her dedicate her life to his practice, and for the last 5 years, she has also been teaching.
Anna has had the opportunity to study with many great teachers and for more than five years has considered Manju Pattabhi Jois her main teacher and inspiration. Anna has completed several teacher trainings and workshops with Manju and also studies with him in Encinitas for longer periods every winter.
In 2010, Anna opened Myoga, a yoga studio in Jönköping where she teaches traditional Ashtanga yoga and where she also has been hosting Manju, among other teachers. In 2011, she opened a branch in Habo.
Anna does popular retreats in Sweden and will soon launch two DVD movies on traditional Ashtanga yoga.
