Dr. Anne Combrinck (PhD), is a founder and senior educator from the Ananda
Sanga Educational Institute in Somerset West, South Africa. She gave up
a career at the CSIR, in Analytical Chemistry and Marine Research in 1992
(from 1977) to teach yoga and study further in the wellness and health field.
has studied Kriya Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda in the
USA, India and South Africa with respected and well known teachers. In the early
1990's she got involved with Energy Healing and studied Touch for Health,
an early form of kinesiology; Specialised Kinesiology; eventually deciding
to specialise in Educational Kinesiology which incorporates Brain Gym
and Vision Circles (a vision enhancement programme). Unfortunately being
too advanced for the years, as kinesiology was only starting to get known, she
gave up practicing this field and continued only with yoga.
teaching career started in 1987, with part-time yoga teaching and running workshops
in Yoga and Meditation. Beginning 1992 she went into teaching nutrition,
yoga and related yoga topics including kinesiology for Yoga Teachers, on
a full-time basis and for many years has trained Yoga Teachers and Advanced
Yoga Teachers. She occasionally gives talks for various yoga and other natural
health conferences, and often conducts workshops and retreats both nationally
and internationally. |
She is also an author of many
articles in the South African Natural Medicine Journal and other well-respected
magazines in South Africa and internationally, and has written all her own training
manuals and workshop materials.
around 2004, she once again dabbled in the fascinating Energy Medicine field -
eventually finding Energy Psychology and its sub-field Emotional Freedom
Techniques (EFT). This was incorporated into her Yoga Therapy practice and
she found her students benefiting greatly. In October 2007 she made a trip to
the USA and finalised training with an EFT Master, who encouraged her to share
this knowledge with the people of South Africa. She now teaches Level 1
and Level 2 EFT, as approved by Gary Craig - the founder of EFT.
Her goals for the future include 'downloading' all the knowledge in her brain
to her students and future students. "I believe I must share what I know
with others to improve and increase their quality of life with Yoga and EFT,"
she says. She is also the eternal student, and loves to learn.
Sanga founded in 1991, is situated in Somerset West, a town approximately
45km from Cape Town, South Africa.
