Hi, I'm Anja.
I help people understand the unique messages of their body and redefine their challenges as strengths.
As a kundalini yoga and meditation instructor, spirituality, health and nutrition coach, and psychic/intuitive healer, I use powerful mind/body practices to support deep healing and lasting change.
My strengths lie in a connection to the realm of spirit, the ability to see and hold space for challenges, and the fervent belief in our innate ability to heal.
I have been on a quest for healing for half of my life. When I was eleven years old, I was struck by the onset of a mysterious illness, plaguing me with headaches and constant nausea. I spent three years bed ridden, physically deteriorating and weak with all 200 of the known symptoms before I was diagnosed at the age of sixteen with chronic Lyme disease and co infections. After years of the trauma of being ill at such a young age, I was hopeful that a diagnosis finally meant a cure, but I had no idea what was to come.
When I discovered my body was too sensitive to western medicine to tolerate conventional treatments and that there was no clear road map for navigating chronic illness as a highly sensitive being, I began to look for alternatives.
I spent years exploring everything from shamanic practices, herbs, acupuncture, and reiki, to sound healing, classical homeopathy, counseling, nutritional IV's and hyperthermia treatments. I've traveled around the world seeking and receiving some of the best, strangest, at at times questionable treatments which exist.
Like so many people with chronic illness, I was willing to try almost anything in the name of getting well.
When I was seventeen I discovered kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. During my first 40 day practice I experienced such profound healing that I embarked on kundalini yoga teacher training; I knew with every fiber of my being that I wanted to share the healing capacities of this form of yoga and meditation with others. Before my training I identified as a sick person, after my training I identified as a strong person who sometimes didn't feel well.
I didn't know it yet, but this life changing mind-shift was a key to what would become my entire philosophy on well being:
When you bring yourself back in alignment with your Self with a capital "S" the deepest form of healing takes place. This Self is the soul, spirit, higher self aspect of you which never changes, even through death. You stop identifying with the conditions of your life and start identifying with the consciousness of self that is alive and eternally vibrant within you.
