Anna has been teaching yoga since 2010. Prior to Jivamukti Yoga Sydney, Anna worked in the media industry as a freelance journalist, researcher and online producer but felt the teachings of yoga calling for her full attention. Anna trained in the Jivamukti Yoga method in 2011 and completed her 800-hr certification in the Jivamukti apprenticeship program with Jessica Sage Stickler in 2012.
Anna has in interest in many movement disciplines, practicing not only yoga asana but kung fu and aerial silks/circus arts. All balance strength, fluidity and mobility in different ways but yoga’s philosophical and spiritual underpinnings keep her firmly on this beautiful path. Anna loves Jivamukti’s emphasis on asana as a way to reconnect with the Earth and Yoga as a path to liberation through compassion for all beings. Anna has always been drawn to activism, starting off in the refugee rights and anti-capitalism movements and more recently crewing with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in Antarctica for two whale defence campaigns in 2012/13 and 2013/14, protecting whales from the Japanese poachers who turn Antarctic waters red every Summer.
At present Anna’s focus, in passing on the teachings of Yoga, is to encourage people to embody love, kindness, fearlessness, beauty in these destructive times –– to use the practices of yoga to rewild our hearts, minds, bodies and souls –– to fall in love with the Earth and protect what we love.
