Although An was born in Vietnam and raised in Texas, she has always considered herself a child of the world. Her sense of adventure and curiosity has taken her to far off places like Madagascar and Laos, where she spent some time volunteering with disadvantaged children. This naturally led her to want to teach children about self-awareness and the importance of maintaining a healthy body and mind.
With her introduction to yoga in 1996 paired with her love of children, it was inevitable her yoga practice would lead her on a magical journey to spread the power of yoga to children of all ages. After the birth of her daughter in 2007, this journey organically grew into reality.
She received her children’s yoga teaching certification through Rainbow Kids Yoga (2010 & 2013), Karma Kids Yoga (2014), Every Kids Yoga: Teaching Yoga to Kids with Special Needs with Craig Hanaur (2015). She acquired her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification in Vinyasa Flow Yoga in Bali through Frog Lotus Yoga (2010). She has also attended workshops by Ana Forrest, The Lineage Project in NYC, Duncan Wong and a Partner Yoga and Tantric Sensual Workshop by Sun Moon Partner Yoga. She completed her Reiki Level I and II at the New York International Reiki Center in 2011, and she also obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Interior Design at the University of Texas in 2001. Prior to opening The Little Yoga House, An was involved in Community Yoga Austin where she provided yoga classes to high school faculties, AISD students in Title I schools and adults with special needs. In her spare time, she travels the world with her yogi daughter, who aspires to be a yoga teacher in the very near future.
