Anila Lacroix was introduced to philosophy and meditation as a child and has been practicing various styles of yoga since 1998. In 2005 she completed her YTT200 at Salt Spring Center of Yoga, and has gone on to graduate further teacher trainings in Anusara, Meditation, Yin, Hot and Kids Yoga. Her YTT500 training was completed at Mount Madonna Center. Following her few years of volunteer work for UNICEF’s “Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS” campaign, Anila embraced her role as Lululemon Ambassador which enabled her to offer her love of yoga to a wide range of students and continue fundraising for non-profit organisations in her home community. Her 2 sons were named by Babaji and have grown to share in the traditions and practices of this vibrant community as young adults.
Prior to permanent injuries she sustained a few years ago, Anila enjoyed a full schedule of teaching, mentoring, leading retreats and workshops offering Power, Meditation, Pranayama, Hot, Hatha, Flow, Yin and Philosophy. She was a teacher trainer for YYoga YTT200 and YTT500 and Salt Spring Center of Yoga YTT200.
She has been a member of the ACYR organising committee for many years and looks forward to her faculty position in the upcoming Salt Spring Center of Yoga YTT500, of which she is also part of the curriculum creation team.
