Meet Anwar Qureshi

Anwar began practicing yoga in 2006, determined to maintain an active lifestyle which he worried could quickly slip away while working full time as a Finance Professional. He was drawn to yoga for its fitness component, though after practicing casually for two years Anwar found it was the mental and emotional benefits that kept him coming back to his mat.

With a newfound depth to his practice, he committed himself to practicing daily and completed the 200hr Teacher Training Certification at De La Sol Yoga Studios in 2011.

Anwar is currently teaching yoga full time across 4 premier studios and is an alumni of the Lululemon Ambassador Program.

02-YA-TEACHER-RYT-200His classes are both challenging and diverse. Drawing from both the Ashtanga and Anusara styles, his classes combine powerful flows with precise alignments, while incorporating an eclectic mix of other traditional forms of Yoga.  Anwar’s students always leave their mats feeling refreshed, de-stressed and energized.

Anwar is a RYT® 200 yoga instructor certified through the Yoga Alliance.
