I’m Anton. I’m the founder of The Sacred Fig. I love teaching, and having the opportunity to mentor new teachers along their path is one of the great joys of my life.
My biggest inspiration is the beauty & wisdom of the natural world. As a teacher, I integrate my love for nature into my classes, drawing on its rhythms and cycles to guide my students on a journey of self-discovery. I believe that by connecting with the natural world, we can tap into our innate intelligence, and learn to move and breathe with grace.
In addition to my work with yoga, I also work with sacred medicines, where I delve into the realms of consciousness, spirituality, and the interconnectedness of all beings (read: yoga!). I believe that these experiences enrich my teachings, and allow me to approach my teachings with emotional depth.
I’m passionate about guiding my students to explore their own places of strength as well as tenderness, ultimately aiming to create a space of compassionate self-inquiry. Through my classes, I offer a profound space for exploration, inquiry, and growth.
I live with my partner and our many animals at Cocoon Portugal. Cocoon is a 275 acre farm + yoga retreat centre on the Atlantic coast of Portugal.
