Ania Plachta

Ania found yoga in her 20's in an attempt to keep fit.   Having a background in dance she was initially drawn to it's discipline, movement and beauty, but was quickly struck by how good it made her feel.  She tried many other forms of fitness but always found herself back on her mat, not only because of the physical benefits but because of the positive emotional and mental effect it has on her life.  As a hairdresser of 22yrs the thing she loved most about her trade was her ability to make her clients feel better about themselves and that is the thing she misses the most in her retirement.  She received her 200RYT teacher training certification at Bloom Yoga Studio in an attempt to marry 2 things she loves; yoga and having a positive effect on people's lives.  In every class Ania teaches, she hopes that it promotes physical wellness, mental clarity and stimulates creativity in her students.  Her passion for learning and need to constantly explore has led her to different styles of yoga, and since graduating from Bloom Ania has gone on to become a Level 1 Healing Fire Reiki practitioner, a certified Yoga Nidra Instructor, a Certified "Rest and Renew" Restorative yoga instructor and a Certified 85hr Pre-Natal  yoga instructor .  When not on her mat, Ania enjoys going to the movies, cooking, gardening, playing Dungeons and Dragons and all things nerdy.
