Ana Holguin has been practicing yoga since 2010. She completed 200 hour teacher training with Hilaire Lockwood at Hilltop Yoga in 2013, and is nearly done with another 100 hours. Ana has pursued further education in yoga for survivors of eating disorders, and trauma sensitive yoga. She teaches at Hilltop Yoga and loves volunteering her time to create safe yoga spaces for all (all bodies, all genders, all colors, all economic backgrounds) to feel comfortable and have access.
As a survivor of complex trauma and eating disorders herself, she has found incredible healing and growth in yoga philosophy and physical, asana, practice. To her, yoga is therapeutic self-study that helps bring the practitioner back into their body, invites kindness to self and others, and teaches them how to make honest choices while focusing on breath and, of course, having fun. Her favorite part of teaching yoga is helping others imagine ways into their bodies–she will talk about body-helper-Muppets, magic beams of light, sweet swooshes of breath, Care-Bear feelings friends, and this is just the norm for her adult classes. She’s honored to work with the Firecracker Foundation to reach children and teens and bring them the care, love, and attention they need and deserve.
