Ana teaches yoga from an intuitive and highly-developed understanding of the human body and psyche. Native American Medicine and the clinical application of healing modalities—including homeopathic and naturopathic remedies, anatomy, reflexology, pressure point therapy, craniosacral therapies, Shiatsu, chiropractic, polarity and hands on healing—always inform her work.

Ana is a certified regression therapist, Reiki Master, ordained practitioner of Native American Medicine and consultant to a number of education and research bodies, including: F.A.R.E. Play (Foundation for Athletic Research and Education) and The University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic.

Ana’s Spirit pledge is to do her part in ‘Mending (Healing) the Hoop of the People’. This is her life’s work. Each year she gives thousands of people the tools to help them design a life that they are proud of. With Ana’s meticulous guidance, her students cultivate an acute awareness of their own yoga practice and life, resulting in an exhilarating journey into self-discovery, cleansing, and healing. Ana received a Los Angeles Mayoral Commendation for her outstanding teaching and healing work in the community — the first time a major U.S. city bestowed such an honour on a yogi or yogini!

Ana contributes regularly to many yoga, health and Spirituality publications and ‘guest’ lectures at educational institutions. She also runs 5-8 Forrest Yoga Teacher Training programs every year, one of which will be at The Big Web venue — Equilibrium Yoga — in August 2014.

Fierce Medicine is published in English, German, Russian, Turkish and as an audio book — candidly read by Ana.

When she isn’t teaching, Ana loves to ride her motorcycle into the wilderness!
