Sam dosha, samagni, samdhatu malakriyah
Prasannatma, indriyas manah swath abhidayate.
~ Sushruta stru 24/41
Health is created when all three doshas (energies) and agni (digestion and metabolism) are functioning optimally and in balance. When atman (soul), senses, and mana (intellect) are in harmony, then internal peace and svastha (optimal health) is achieved.
I looked forward to the times I got to speak with Anna on the phone. Even the sound of her voice was soothing. She was a grounding force for me when my life was in another flux.
Anna’s level of training is evident in her ability to really listen to what was present for me at the moment and respond with clarity and exactitude, confidence and personal experience. I felt like Anna really heard what was underneath my words and could go beyond the surface level to what was really going on for me, and address the root of the issue.
Something I loved about working with Anna is her transparency and willingness to continue to ask better questions of herself and her mentees. She is a practitioner of a very high level and yet she’s simultaneously continuing her own education—this is the best kind of person to take any journey with.
Anna held space for whatever was arising for me, and lead me into a new discovery each time we talked simply be telling a story of her own experience that connected us—it was amazing! I felt like I could really connect with her even though I’d never met her in person.
Thank you, Anna, for your dedication, heart, and willingness to go along this path together!

Working with Anna has been such a privilege and joy. I looked forward so much to our Skypes. I felt she was working not just from a place of deep knowledge, but also intuition and personal experience. An important blend!
I learned so much from her, and always re-read the notes from our calls, they were so packed with information. We covered many areas from the Ayurvedic tradition, both practical and subtle concepts. I really valued the suggestions she’s given for both myself and for my yoga clients.
I always left our calls feeling more knowledgeable, positive and inspired. Thank you Anna!

Anna is a pleasure to work with. Over the 9 months of working together she seem to get to the root of my issues and offer guidance and ideas. Anna possesses a very special skill to calm my Pitta drive and motivate my Kapha laziness. By our last session together, I felt I had some tricks in my bag to use well after our time together had come to an end.
Miss you already 🙂
Anna demonstrates warmth and wisdom in every interaction. Our conversations were filled with tangible and helpful ideas, and I always left with something new to try, or a new way to think about my body. I’m so grateful for our shared time, and all that I learned about Ayurveda and healing with Anna!
