Ana Berry

Ana first discovered her love for yoga with a Rodney Yee VHS yoga video at age 12. That discovery has continued to guide her through the constant vinyasa of life with over 26 years of practicing and over 12 years of teaching.

She has studied many forms of yoga with leading teachers in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York but while living in LA, she found her teacher; Mark Whitwell, founder of The Heart of Yoga. Rooted in the teachings of Sri Krishnamacharya, the Heart of Yoga principles hit home with Ana more than anything else. Studying with Mark for over 4 years in LA, she received her 500 hour teacher certification on a spiritual pilgrimage and training in India. Since then, she has been traveling and teaching with Mark Whitwell, as his assistant and guest teacher at places like Esalen, Bali Spirit Fest, Omega Institute, Kripalu, Telluride Yoga Festival and many more. Upon moving back to Tulsa, she has taught yoga classes and workshops at Be Love, I AM Yoga, Everyone Yoga School and Salt Yoga. Ana is thrilled to be back teaching at The Yoga Room.

Ana’s approach to teaching starts with the heart, is centered around the breath, incorporating yoga philosophy, mantra and sanskrit. Ana welcomes all levels to her class, from beginners to advanced, and especially the skeptical! Ana does not teach a ‘cookie cutter yoga’ or an ‘instagram pose’ yoga type of class. No fancy yoga pants required and you don’t have to touch your toes. Come as you are and let’s create a space for you to find your own practice that is specific to where and who you are.
