Born and mostly raised in New York City, Anna began her path as a lover of art and dance, obtaining her BA and MA in Art History and Contemporary Art. After completing basic training in energy work and massage at Kripalu in Western Massachusetts in 2001-2002, a deep fire was lit within her heart and the next chapter of her life began. Although she still revels in creativity and self-expression, she let her art training go and became a full time healing practitioner in 2009. She became the first certified and licensed Wu Tao Dance instructor in the US in 2012 and has been teaching Wu Tao through Wu Tao NYC since then. That same year, she co-founded Brooklyn Breathwork, a community-based rebirthing breathwork organization that offers monthly group breathes along with diverse opportunities for healing through her own work and guest teachers. Anna has been a practicing rebirther since 2010 after completing the nine month rebirthing breathwork training through the New York and Philadelphia Rebirthing Center with Center managers Maureen Malone and Tony LoMastro. Through her work with Ron Baker of Children of Light, she completed reiki light ascension training and became a reiki master in 2015. She has been an enthusiastic Wellness Advocate for doTERRA essential oils since 2015 - you can view more about her and this amazing product at www.mydoterra.com/annabrooke. Anna is a lifelong dancer and loves the opportunity to support people in their healing path as well as creating safe spaces of compassion and self-acceptance in every class she teaches.
