Anna Sugarman

About us

Anna's joie de vivre is contagious. She inspires light hearted courage, empowering others to shine consistently – during the dark times and the bright. Her loving, playful style of educating instills confidence in students of all levels as she illuminates their strengths, gently guiding them toward their higher potential by offering tools to elevate happiness and optimize lives. Anna is currently based in Brighton, England, with her husband/soulmate and baby daughter.

This international yoga teacher and teacher trainer sparkled in Los Angeles as a designer, entrepreneur and yogi, but her heart desired adventure and knowledge... So for years she traveled the earth focusing on humanitarianism – en route, practicing and teaching yoga classes, workshops, retreats, festivals and teacher trainings. Over 100 of her graduates are currently sharing yoga worldwide.

Since 1998, Anna has been fortunate to have studied with renowned teachers around the globe, all of whom have shaped her own practice and teaching approach. Her dharma is sharing her passion for spiritual balance, and she devotes herself to exploring this – as a student and a teacher. 

Anna obtained her 500 hour certification in the Himalayas, from a duo of gurus – a doctorate of philosophy and a doctor of Ayurvedic and Western medicine. Immersed in the vibrant energy of India, she also studied spiritual philosophy and Eastern medicine, and instructed intensive yoga teacher trainings.

Integrating appropriate anatomical alignment, challenging sequences and intelligent transitions with creativity, enthusiasm and joy, it’s been said that Anna plays yoga. During philosophical Yin classes, Anna’s captivating voice invokes peace; whilst her laughter-packed, Vinyasa flows culminate in blissful fun, focusing on strength, mindfulness and grace.

Anna’s love for playful motion and holistic wellbeing is her offering – she aims to assist others in discovering and nurturing their ethos. She believes it's deep rooted passion which sparks the joy that will maintain a strong self-practice, peace of mind, a happy life, and the ability and authenticity to share it with others.
