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.
Just as the wise Velveteen Rabbit said, "You become." My hope is we all become exactly who 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, and my dark, day by day, moment by moment. I hope to help you do the same in classes, on retreat, during immersions, in intuitive coaching sessions, by listening to the podcast... or whatever else comes next.
I have spent the last 19+ years teaching yoga, perhaps in an unconventional way. Admittedly, 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 become 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 to 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, and to connect to those who may not stumble into a yoga studio. I have always craved raw, meaningful, and vulnerable connections, and love the art of storytelling. I want to hear about how you have thrived and where you have fallen, my podcast was born out of this desire.
As I continue to follow the whisper of my soul, I now offer sacred retreats in my favorite place in northern Michigan, as well as one-on-one sessions to support others on their own path of transformation.
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.
