“We love having Ranya here in the office to practice Yoga with us!”
“Ranya is knowledgeable, proficient in serveral yoga styles and her calming nature put me instantly at ease.”
Ranya Anabtawi is a certified and insured Yoga teacher. A humble student of yoga for twenty-five years and a San Francisco Bay Area teacher for eleven, Ranya integrates her grounded, calm, gentle and often profound classes with her belief that students can benefit from a yoga practice not only for themselves but for the benefit of others. Her yoga background is extensive. Having studied modalities such as Restorative, Therapeutic, and Yin she draws from this knowledge to expertly create a custom sequence for her students. Ranya is excited to bring her offerings to the Goddess Festival. Yoga philosophy teaches that we, like everything, are made up of the earth, water, fire, and either.
As one of her recent student testimonials says, “She really wants the best for her students and I couldn't be more appreciative of her insight, patience, and positivity.” And after Ranya’s Yin class, a student said, “…taking Ranya's class has helped in my relaxation; as well as helping me release tight muscles I've had for years; after her class I go home and sleep like a baby.” One of her private clients points out, “She knows how to pace each asana and modifies as needed with no judgment. She notices subtle details and adjusts accordingly.”
Ranya just completed her 300 advanced yoga certification in Spring of 2019 and will be offering a restorative yoga retreat and training in the Scottish highlands in July 2020. She is truly grateful for the lineage of teachers she has studied with; Judith Hansen Lasater, Sarah and Ty Powers, Paul and Suzee Grilley, Harvey Deutch, and Thomas Fortel, to name a few.
