Joe Waling – also named Gyan Anand …Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Mystical Poet

Joe/Gyan has been practicing yoga for ten years, and first became internationally certified in Hatha practice in Istanbul, Turkey in 2009. He practices daily and has just extended his training Traditional Indian Yoga and Meditation in Rishikesh, India. He is Yoga Alliance certified in both guided meditations and in yoga.  He primarily teaches vinyasa flow classes, but also teaches gentle yoga, and puts a spiritual twist on the western approach to yoga – utilizing chanting, pranayama – breath work -, and yoga asanas to help facilitate the evolution of consciousness in each individual. He also writes mystical poetry on a daily basis, and has been for 7 straight years now. Gyan uses his poetry in some of his meditations to help broaden the consciousness of the group to engulf the cosmic love that surrounds all life.
