Hey there, I am Anna...
Through designing and facilitating embodied experience, my mission is to inspire people to become more resilient, empowered, and creative to live in regenerative ways!

A journey that turned out to be somewhat open-ended, bumpier, and more diverse than expected brought me here. I am an Italian kid raised by a single mother while she was pursuing a career as a doctor and who grew up in grandma’s kitchen making delicious food. 

I am an active and all-nuts 15 years old auntie. I am an adolescent with a great passion for literature & history, who tried to conform, going to the gym and eating nothing to look fit and skinny to conform standards but soon rebelled against the school system, catholic church, far-right politics, and the superficial, fake culture. 

I am a young woman who moved to England, got a degree in Anthropology & International Development from Sussex University, and a Masters in Climate Change, Development & Policy at IDS, the globally recognized development institute. Yet came to see the world as hopeless, messy, greedy, and unjust. I was disillusioned and with a pretty clear idea, as a professor of mine once framed it, “the world is how it is because those in power wanted to be that way”.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

Once COVID-19 kicked off, I gathered quite diverse work experiences from global education, permaculture to local food craft. In the struggle of finding purpose and belonging, I took this moment as a chance to rewind the tape and find the courage to own my story.

When I look back, I see a joyful and thoughtful kid who jumped from gymnastics, dance, drama, to yoga classes as living in a musical. I see a reckless teenager who was compassionate and brave enough to slow down. I see an anthropology student who set with discomfort and embodied how to nourish and thrive. I see a woman who is daily trying to own her power, trust, and self-worth. I see a regenerative practitioner who is intentionally adaptive, committed to reimagining place and values, learning to listen and connect deeply with Mother nature through her own practice. 

These multiple identities repeatedly unfold and come at play and aid. With my longings, limits, vulnerabilities, pleasures, and desires I am embarking myself in this venture, in service to the world by supporting people to live in regenerative ways.
