She also spends her free time to serving on the Advisory Board of Yoga for People, a nonprofit making yoga available to everyone. Anna hasn’t owned a TV for over a decade, and though this makes her acutely pop culture illiterate, she loves spending her “down time” discovering and connecting with her community–local and global. She strongly believes that being actively engaged in the world makes her a happier and healthier human. She enthusiastically encourages others to do the same.
