Ann Averbach
Founder of DiviniTree Yoga, Ann lives
yoga through every breathe, and when
she is not on her mat Ann can be found
hiking in nature, traveling the world,
gardening, or gathering with friends and
family over farm to table meals. Ann has
spent the last 15 years committed to
learning and teaching yoga as well as
creating community centers of yoga in
Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, and arround
the world. From the Himalayas to the
Amazon and from Fiji to Kenya, Ann has
been harvesting seeds of wisdom and
weaving together a tapestry of
transformational tools into her life and
Denise Kirpal Kaur
Practicing, meditating, chanting and opening
a fearful heart has revealed that union to
me. I feel it is not enough to practice yoga
but to live yoga, in every thought, word and
deed. Teaching from my actual experiences
of Sadhana, commitment, courage, calm and
love provides a safe, loving and nurturing
space for others to open and grow. My
spiritual name, Kirpal, means “merciful and
compassionate one”, and it reminds me that
each of us is going through the same kinds
of pains, joys, desires, losses, gains and
expectations. I am simply grateful for every
experience I have, every day, and for each
being I meet.
