About the Course Leader
Ana Camacho Hansen started her spiritual journey as a young girl. Her mother and father were the first to expose her to devotional practices. Her mother is a devotee to Mother Mary and has been praying the rosary for over fifty years. She remembers going to rosary gatherings as a teenager at Estela Ruiz's residence in the south side of Phoenix, Arizona.
While attending the University of Rochester, she studied women studies, political science, and English. Her spirituality and devotion to God anchored her as she developed her academic career. She particularly enjoyed learning about religious women and how they used their devotion to real change in the world.
In 2001, Ana began her formal studies in yoga and Pantanjali's Yoga Sutras. Her first yoga class was a video with Patricia Walden, given to her by her twin sister, Melissa. In the summer of 2003, she completed Yoga Alliance's 200-hour level teacher training through 7 Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona, Arizona. She met many of her gurus of yoga: Rama Jyoti Vernon, Shraddhasaggar (Ruth Hartung), and Ambaya (Pilar Martin of Ambaya Gold). In 2005, Ana completed her Yoga Alliance 500 hour level teacher training program with the International Yoga College.
In 2007, Ana made a pilgrimage to India with her husband, where she focused on visiting many temples, ashrams, and other sacred sites. The highlight of her trip was her experience in Rishikesh, India. Here she bathed in the Ganges and meditated. This experience redirected her life and had a profound impact on her. In January of 2008, Ana attended her first Vipassana 10 Day Retreat and learned the practice of Vipassana as taught by S.N. Goenka.
In March of 2009, her greatest guru was born; her son. Today, Ana teaches peace curriculum, kids mindfulness, and kids yoga at local Sedona schools. Ana also teaches hatha yoga, chakra yoga, and vipassana meditation. Ana is the lead director of Sedona Sol Yoga's 100-hour Children's Yoga Program. She also is the author of Yoga for Big Hearts and Little Hands: A Handbook of Yoga Poses for Children.
