Hello! I'm Ann Fancy, I have one of those names people tend to smush altogether, so I will do that too. I consider myself an avid student of life, I am insatiably curious and though I have learned to censor myself a bit, I didn't come by the nickname "truth-train" by chance.
I have spent the last 18+ years teaching yoga, perhaps in an unconventional way. I must admit, the label of yoga teacher makes my soul contract, yoga in the west is innately flawed, it is complicated and layered, and it has been medicinal for me. The practice, both on and off the mat has allowed me to reclaim the complexity of being, the mess and divinity, and has became a loving invitation to live more integrated as a soul in a body. The practice was a doorway I entered, it is not the totality of who I am or what I do. There are many, many pathways into a deeper and more meaningful life. Yoga opened many doors for me and allowed me to wake up to my calling more fully. But who wants to be stuck with one label? Not me.
Over time, the confines of the yoga studio have felt limited and exclusive, I ached for a way to have deep conversations off the mat. I crave raw, meaningful, and vulnerable connection, and I have always been fascinated by storytelling. I want to hear about how you have thrived and where you have fallen. I aim to share stories with the hope that we can all see ourselves in these conversations and connections. My podcast was born out of this desire.
I will continue to expand my understanding of what it means to be wakeful, alive, and "on path", I promise to stay a student of life, and continue to follow the whisper of my soul.
Just as the wise Velveteen Rabbit said, "You become." May we all become exactly whom we intended to be. I work daily to peel away the layers of who I am as I adventure in the unknown. I am here to reclaim my power, my light, day by day, moment by moment. I hope to help you do the same, whether that is in classes, retreats, immersions, intuitive coaching, the podast... or whatever else comes next.
I am grateful for your presence here on this page. Your light, your journey, your reclamation, your voice, your health, your healing, your life matters. You matter.
