My name is Anna Scirè. I was born in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and I knew ever since I was a child that my home was my soul. (The sea was a tough competitor, though).
I am a wild reader. I have read books about spiritual growth since the beginning of this journey. All this reading has given to me many instruments of strength, faith and understanding.
The yoga practice came later – it was love.
I wrote my Philosophy degree thesis about yoga, the title was: “Ontology of the Self. Evolutionary itineraries for human beings between philosophical life and yoga.” In this paper I tried to track the steps of a spiritual, ethical and social evolutionary route from the Ego to the Self.
In the last years I went through some surgeries and body issues and yoga showed me unexpected ways to keep a talking and an understanding with the body I am and I’m in.
As J. Brown would say, “Life hurts. Yoga helps.”
I try to practice yoga and meditation every day of my life. Sometimes I fail, of course.
Still, the process of trying, at times failing and at other times succeeding makes life a multicolor school. The learning is around and about joy, identity, expectations, freedom, creativity, humility, glory, self-discipline, self-discovery, self-care, self-love.
Our society demands a lot of us, especially when it comes to how we should be. Instead, I believe our true nature is always the best question and the best answer. And I also believe yoga is amazing at unfolding the awareness of who we are in both body and mind. Once we realize it… We Just Bloom. That’s why I practice and teach yoga: I dream a world where every person can bloom, in awareness and humanity. It would be a lot of fun and very beautiful, wouldn’t it?
My practice is deep, gentle and therapeutic.
I love writing, poetry, art, music, traveling, gardening, cooking, walking, laughing, wildness.
I believe, that Our True Nature IS Nature. I am a TreeSister.
I’ve chosen this picture because it was taken in a place I love and by the person I love the most. It’s from some years ago and I had less of that charm which comes with the age – so please adjust your expectations accordingly. 😉

As a Yoga Teacher certified in Italy I am registered as a member of the Y.A.N.I. (Yoga Associazione Nazionale Insegnanti – Yoga Teachers National Alliance)
I have been practicing Dance Theatre following Emma Scialfa’s inspirations for some years when I was living in Italy. I loved it. I have been exploring small branches of the gorgeous worlds behind body-work, butoh dance, Meyerhold biomecanics and Grotowski Theatre. With Gary Brackett I had the possibility to engage my-self in the Living Theatre, performing with all my heart and my civil sense of responsibility.
And my body.
The political body, the artistic body, the true body.
In the university I have met a professor whose works and thoughts have represented a great encounter in my life, Alberto Giovanni Biuso. A philosopher of the body, let’s say.
The philosophical body.
In 2004 I had the first Reiki Initiation. A big door of love inside me has been opened that afternoon.
The healing body, the healer body, the body of love.
Thanks to my parent’s life choices I was growing up close to the researches of Roberto Assagioli. He was the founder of the psychosynthesis, a spiritual and holistic approach to psychology that had developed from psychoanalysis. His understanding of the human experiences had a big influences on me.
The body-mind, the body-psyche, the body-soul.
For some years I had some contacts with the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, which promotes a spiritual practice that has evolved out of the ancient ways of the Twisted Hairs medicine men and women of Turtle Island (the Americas). They gave me magic and never-ending starry sky. I practice now shamanic journeys following the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
The magic body, the elements body, the worlds body, the shaman body.
I am an artistic soul. Not really able to perform art professionally, I am vibrating in art since I began to understand what art was. Important.
The vibrant body. The experimenting body. The hungry, crazy, happy, free, magnificent, insignificant, singing, playing, composing, drawing, painting, writing, shooting, shaping, creating, craving, weirdo, poetic body.
I have always believed in connections with others. People are something I like. Incredibly wonderful friends make my life a paradise. I am married to a great man, companion, guru, psychonaut, sweetest of the sweets, king of dreams, beach soul and no-stopping singer. You will always find gratitude in my days for that.
Our bodies, our body.
Body IS the soul, after all. I am present. I laugh a lot.
Come by for tea and cookies and have a lovely day, dear reader magic fabulous You.
