Anna Pittman has dedicated her adult life to understanding both the function and mystery of the body/mind complex. She began her career as a modern dancer.From 1984 – 1990 she studied the Limon style of modern dance from a practicing Zen teacher who used improvisational work as a means to access the un-integrated emotions harbored in the body and sub-conscious.At the same time, Anna studied Hatha and Raja Yoga with Carla Sgroi of the European Yoga Alliance for 5 years in Milan, Italy. These very personal and revealing practices formed the fundamental understanding that the body, living in the past, and the mind, often existing in the future, rarely meet in the present. Anna continued her inquiry into her own life through extensive self-study while acquiring certification as a 500 hour Advanced teacher ofHatha Yoga, Meditation, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, Shiatsu bodywork, Massage and Transpersonal Barratt Breathwork. She is now available as a Life Transformation Consultant to groups and one-on-one where she combines these various modalities into an experience of resolution and integration. Presently Anna holds a Masters in Transpersonal Psychology and a PhD research in Consciousness Studies.
