Anita Brooks is originally from Washington, DC and has lived on the coast since 1991. She is the president of her own company ASB Marketing, LLC. She began her yoga practice in January 2001 to help build strength and cope with back problems. Although she enjoyed the amazing physical benefits of her practice, she fell in love with yoga for the soulful peace she experienced from the merging of mind, body and spirit. Through her personal practice, classes and workshops with several national yoga teachers including Doug Keller, Raye Lynn Rath, Cora Wen and Baxter Bell, Anita has refined and improved her yoga skills. Her focus is primarily in the Anusara yoga tradition. She is passionate about living her yoga and enjoys sharing this passion with new beginner students.
