About The Teacher


Anwar Gilbert is the co-founder of Sarva Rasa Yoga. Anwar is a yoga teacher, nutritionalist, personal trainer, performance specialist, integrated flexibility specialist, pre/postnatal specialist,  and corrective exercise specialist. Anwar has been guiding his clients on their individual paths to wellness for 14 years. Anwar has been teaching anatomy and physiology and coaching and mentoring personal trainers and movement teachers throughout his career.

In his 14 years he has seen it all, from the brokenhearted and the lost souls to the over confident and the workaholics in need of some me-time.

His clients know it is real, it is natural and it is about them and no one else. Anwar believes his role as a coach and teacher is an honored position and not one he takes lightly. The fact that he get to experience the hardships and the engagements, preparing for the birth of their babies and hearing the joy of their newest addition, whipping them into shape for their big day, restoring their confidence after injury or giving them a way to channel their stress or sorrow when things aren’t going their way – he feels like the luckiest guy on the planet. Helping someone to love who they are on the outside is about more than lifting weights or developing a dedicated asana practice.

Anwar began his personal journey with yoga 13 years ago and began teaching asana and the 8-limbed path of yoga 7 years ago. Anwar found yoga, meditation, and pranayama to be powerful tools of mindfulness, integration, and a path to living from highest self more of the time. It is his great honor to assist others in finding their own experiential path of yoga.
