Anwar found yoga in 2006 after realizing an active youth had given way to less healthy habits. Determined to regain and maintain a more healthy lifestyle, he was drawn to yoga for it’s fitness component, which works as one of the best cross trainers for many athletic endeavors. After practicing casually for two years Anwar found it was the mental and emotional benefits that kept him coming to his mat through the physical plateaus and life’s many other distractions. With a newfound depth to his yoga, Anwar began practicing more seriously and completed his 200 Hour Teacher Training Certification 2011. He feels privileged to teach yoga full time. It is the combination of physical skill and mental challenge that makes Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) his favourite pose.
