Anton Brandt

Founder + Facilitator + Levitator

“...to perform every action artfully is yoga”

When not standing on his hands, most of Anton’s adult life has been spent travelling the world, with the common thread linking his varied life experience being a search for the extraordinary. From founding a sustainable footwear brand, to working with the pop-band Scissor Sisters, his yoga practice kept him grounded along the way. Eventually that practice turned into a life long dedication, and since then he’s travelled the world exploring wide ranging modalities, from Katonah Yoga to shamanic plant medicine, from The Landmark Forum to Vipassana Meditation. The Sacred Fig is the culmination of that journey.

Anton is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance, E-RYT) of a zillion hours. He seamlessly blends meditation, pranayama, & asana together with a sense of lightness, laughter, and ease. Anton’s classes are intelligently sequenced, fluid, dynamic, and physically demanding.

Anton has been profoundly influenced by his teachers Nevine Michaan, Gil Hedley, and Mama Nature. He’s been featured in various publications, including The Guardian, Yoga Journal, GQ and Mantra Magazine. Here’s what YogaCityNYC said about him in their recent profile:

“When you meet a spirit with an exceptionally radiant, guiding light, you feel the desire to surround yourself with their presence. And if you’re fortunate enough to find this light source, it’s a gift. Anton has a sparkle that exudes from an authentic place of ease and happiness deep within.” Read the whole article here.

Anton spends his free time at Cocoon Portugal, his 275 acre farm + retreat centre on the coast of Portugal.  When in NYC, you can find him at SKY TING YOGA.
