Anna Ottolino

Anna has been teaching yoga since 2009 and loves helping people to cultivate more meaning and presence in their lives by encouraging them to connect to themselves through yoga and meditation. She believes that the stress-relieving qualities of a consistent practice along with the mental, physical, and emotional strengthening can greatly impact one’s life on a multitude of levels. Her teaching style has a strong focus on alignment and turning inward for spiritual reflection, sprinkled with some fun and challenge. Anna is the founder and co-owner of The Yoga Effect and most recently, her passion for travel inspired her to plan spiritual retreats in beautiful destinations, bringing all her passions together. Anna is registered as an E-RYT 200 teacher with The Yoga Alliance and is currently pursuing her E-RYT-500.  She is also certified in both Reflexology and Reiki.  Anna originally received her yoga training with Martin Kirk, author of Hatha Yoga Illustrated.  She is grateful to her students who helped her to grow as a teacher and to her many teachers for their wisdom and support. The Yoga Effect and the Grayslake community are dear to Anna, and she is thrilled to be part of this community. Anna would love to hear from you.  Please contact her at Anna at
