Dr. Anna Engels is a Co-Founder of Yoga Lab Studio in State College, PA. Her yoga teaching and practice combines her background in psychology with a strong grounding in anatomy and functional movement to create intelligent and fun sequences that flow with the breath and connect you to your core. She has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, and her clinical interests and academic research focus on stress, anxiety, depression, and their associated patterns of brain activity using fMRI. Anna is also a photographer and loves traveling the world, capturing moments of beauty. She has trained in multiple styles of yoga and is a yoga teacher registered at the E-RYT 500 and YACEP levels with Yoga Alliance. Even though she had already completed a 200hr and 500hr training in other styles, she took one anatomy junkies workshop with Lara Heimann and was hooked. To deepen her understanding of anatomy and biomechanics, she completed Lara's Level 1 training in Costa Rica, and is now in progress with her Level 2 training. She co-founded Yoga Lab with several other amazing people who have completed Lara's training to offer LYT Yoga in State College, PA. She currently teaches yoga at Yoga Lab and in the Penn State Kinesiology Department.
