After leaving Rishikesh that spring, she continued traveling for months, throughout parts of India, Nepal, and Thailand, practising yoga and Buddhist meditation, and acquiring certification in Thai massage. She finally ended up, in December 1992, at Shantivanam, a Christian ashram in South India, where she met David Muller from Switzerland. It was through the soul of David that she initially received the highest teachings of yoga … it was yoga taught out of the purity of the soul, via the Holy Spirit … it was “yoga from the heart”. She spent the winter of 1993 there, receiving the teachings and blessings through David. Yet, David himself was not the yoga master, but rather, he was connected in the heart to the cosmic-spiritual impulse embodied in the fully-enlightened soul of the graceful Heinz Grill of Germany. Anne knew she must participate in the intensive yoga teacher training course being offered by Heinz Grill himself, in the Tirol district of Austria. The course resembled an intensive Sivananda yoga teacher training course (after all, Heinz Grill himself had trained in a teacher training at a Sivananda school). But the real basis of the training course was the cosmic-spiritual impulse which appeared through the person of Heinz Grill. Upon completion of the yoga teacher training, she finally returned to Canada in September 1993.
Since then, she has been traveling back and forth between her two homes, Toronto and India, living, studying, and teaching Yoga From The Heart Canada in both places. Since the late 90’s, the India location has been on the premises of the family home of Hindu priest V.S. Hegde near the holy pilgrimage town of Gokarna, Karnataka, South India. There is a steady flow of traveling Westerners who pass through there and enthusiastically participate in the intensive 10 day yoga courses which Anne teaches on a flat rooftop surrounded by palm trees. There she is affectionately known as “Annie from Canada, the yoga teacher”. As for her teaching in Canada, she is currently teaching out of a boutique studio setting in downtown Toronto.
