Anna Broome has been practicing yoga for over 16 years. She is professionally trained as a Recreational Therapist and has worked as such since 2005. She began exploring adaptive yoga for her clients with varied abilities and mobility challenges in 2009. She received a 25-hour certification in Chair Yoga from Lakshmi Voelker in 2010. This led her to begin volunteering to teach at local assisted living facilities to hone her skills and share chair yoga with large groups. In 2011 she began offering her first public class at the Price Center in downtown San Marcos.
In 2016 Anna sought to deepen her personal and professional practice and received a 200-hour Registered Yoga Alliance Certification from Jenn Wooten and Angie Knight. The Waking Yoga teacher training course offered a focus on renewing yourself through your yoga practice. While Anna had not planned to open SMTX Yoga in 2017, the opportunity organically presented itself through her community connections in San Marcos. Serving the Price Center since early 2011 with a Chair Yoga class, Anna decided to expand her offerings there to 2 cahir yoga classes, a gentle class and a hatha flow class. The support from the Price Center, as well as their beautiful building and unique downtown location have made it the perfect home for SMTX Yoga.
