What is a Spiritual Warrior?

OUR DEFINITION

Being a spiritual warrior means being willing and able to engage in the struggle for self-mastery, being able to use and channel every emotion constructively, facing your own darkness with your inner light and healing the split between your ego self and higher Self.

It requires inner strength and courage to deal directly - and objectively - with whatever difficulty you may be more naturally inclined to ignore, deny or magnify. 

Its 3 main components: 

1. Feeling everything without getting negatively affected by your emotions

2. Understanding the spiritual lesson(s) each of your life's challenges hold

3. Having the power to overcome your own harmful patterns/habits

The Program & Principles

COMBINING THE BEST OF EAST AND WEST

"I discovered from my own personal healing journey how powerful it was to combine the diagnostic methods of the latest western psychology findings with the therapeutic principles and practices of ancient eastern wisdom. I found my own inner hero not outside myself, but deep within my being. I reclaimed my power by bringing together the best of east and west.

Now, for the first time, I will guide you, with support from my heroic friends, on a one-of-a-kind journey to bring out the hero within you. Whether you are seeking to digest your life's experiences and turn your pain into power, or are simply looking for a powerful process to stop procrastinating fulfilling your highest calling, this program will support you step-by-step to transform potentially every aspect of your life for the better and feel the strongest you have ever felt, inside and out."

What Students Are Saying

“"Ananta used the framework of her Spiritual Warrior Certificate Program in mentoring me. The incredible stories of the 9 Navratri Goddesses linked with the 9 chakras in our body inspired me to burn away the emotions that weren’t serving me such as unresolved anger, a need for approval from society and fears that stem from my deep attachments with my loved ones. I replaced my old thought patterns with fresh, new and empowering narratives that I reinforced to myself repeatedly in order to create a sustainable and lasting change in my mindset. ​ Ananta’s program goes beyond the surface. It helps you heal at the deepest level, replace darkness with inner light and experience bliss and happiness from within. Ananta is a very inspiring instructor as she genuinely embraces and lives by all that she teaches. In doing so, she really stands out from all other instructors out there. She is also very focused on the learning of students and greatly supports them in their journey to apply the practices they learn. She is in it for the impact and this purpose matters deeply to her."”

Tanvi Jain Patyal, Former Management Consultant and Program Officer

““My experience with Ananta as my spiritual teacher has been life changing. Ananta’s approach to teaching is universal for all walks of life: any age and any level of background to Ayurveda, as well as those who may have a busier schedule. Ananta’s program allows for catered guidance and support. ​ For example, I am a very busy person. I have a very large family that I care for, as well as having my own business and outside projects. I also joined the program with very little knowledge about Ayurveda, except for the fact that I had a yearning desire to make better choices that served my body, mind, and soul. I knew I needed something deeper than yoga and meditation. I was searching for a whole-body health and self-care solution that would bring me to my higher Self. ​ I knew Ananta would know how to get me there. I was introduced to Ananta’s practices in 2019 when she hosted 30-minute sessions about individualized Ayurvedic practices. I remember one session was dedicated to roses and their benefits. I, myself, am an avid rose gardener. I thought, if Ananta could find the beauty and benefits of roses, imagine what she could do for ME! ​ A year later, here I am. I’ve found every joy in my day: from waking, to honoring the sun; taking pride in my meals, my breath, and my self-care practices. Without Ananta, I would have never found joy or peace. I recommend studying with Ananta and her team of teachers, because everyone deserves to find their joy in life. Living with deeper intentions and compassion for oneself is the greatest gift that someone could give to themselves."”

Becky Alby, Mother of 5, Entrepreneur, Gardener

“"I was fortunate to have first met Ananta virtually just when the pandemic started in early 2020, which catalyzed the inception of a profound inner journey. Her recommendations laid a strong foundation for me to start a journey of embodying wellness at a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Over the next few months, I had several spiritual coaching sessions where she gave me some wonderful tools and practices to make improvement in those specific life areas. I diligently followed her suggestions and started seeing improvement in my overall physical, emotional and mental health. As an example, I had some traumatic experiences dealing with some toxic people with negative intentions and harmful behavior. Any such interactions instilled a lot of fear which permeated through my mind, body and spirit, and manifested in the form of physical symptoms. With Ananta’s guidance and teachings, I was able to recognize those patterns and learnt to operate from a higher space instead of engaging at low frequencies, I learnt to forgive and send healing vibes and blessings instead of reacting, I learnt to anchor myself in service to the higher truth and on spiritually evolving myself instead of wasting my time on trivial interactions and I learnt that even toxic people can be our best teachers, as they teach us to overcome darkness and connect with the divine light within. Since studying with Ananta, that intensity of fear has significantly reduced and I am in awe at how it has led to significant reduction in my symptoms as well. I feel very grateful to Ananta for being my spiritual guide and teaching me to not only be true to myself but also to be a spiritual warrior. Not only did Ananta's empowering approach to teaching strengthen me personally, but being part of her program also connected me with a beautiful family of light she created, which has become my soul tribe. Most of us are not connected by blood but we are by our souls, by our positive vibrations and our desire to seek light and the highest truth within ourselves. I feel the most content I have ever felt."”

Nachi Chopra, Business Transformation Leader

“"Ananta is a wonderful person and a great spiritual teacher along with being empowered with the ancient holistic and healing system including Ayurveda, Yoga, Vedic Scriptures, and many more. She carries the sword of knowledge with utmost grace to help, assist and motivate ignorant souls to find their inner self, heal their physical bodies and correct their mental and emotional state of mind. I firmly believe that it was my universal calling on this path that we were destined to meet and connect on this holistic path of a spiritual journey of inner transformation comprising of Ayurveda wellness and other ancient healing modalities. I had a wonderful time connecting with Ananta right from the birth of this program, being a part of it along with an incredible community of students from all over the world. She is an exceptional mentor who can guide you on your spiritual path no matter wherever you are. Her teachings and talks have inspired me to walk on this path with confidence and self-belief in becoming a true version of myself. With my keen desire to learn and validate myself with proper and authentic training, I choose this program to support my professional goals in serving the wellness community. I highly recommend this program if you want a structured, engaging, and well-designed course with excellent tools and methodology to widen your knowledge and understanding of the ancient way of living."”

Eshita Dayani, Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher

“"I loved that Ananta didn't water down the profound spiritual teachings of the Veda, like I see happening in some of the Ayurveda and Yoga communities in the West. And that very importantly, she stayed "true to text" - making sure to bring teachings back to the source from where they emerged. She is brilliant in her ability to retain a lot of detail and information and then present it clearly through slides and sweetness of voice and articulation of speech. Being an energetically sensitive person, the sound and vibration that brings forth the teachings/lessons of a person, are very important to me and can make it possible or not possible for me to take a course from someone. Ananta has a pure devotional heart and is a true spiritual aspirant, genuinely living what she teaches, which is another really important thing for me in choosing a teacher. It was an honor to be a part of year one of this program and to learn alongside a truly beautiful and wise community of people from all over. I look forward to continuing my studies with Ananta, diving deeper and going back over my notes and the assigned reading so that I can continue connecting the dots within myself. As Ananta has compassionately reminded me and others - this is a lifelong study and practice, and for that I am deeply grateful because there really is so much wisdom to learn!"”

Corinne Andrews, Owner/Director of Shraddha Yoga and Birthing Mama

“"Ananta's wisdom and maturity are beyond her age. She embodies the ancient knowledge, wisdom and spirituality! She has practiced what she is preaching. She is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher. What is more admiring is that she wants all her students to be Ambassadors of light and spread this valuable knowledge to others! ​ I am now, naturally drawn to volunteer social services for my community. I feel blessed to have joined Ananta's loving and caring community, which is like family. I am determined and inspired to be a Wellness Ambassador and Spiritual Warrior to assist our beloved Anantaji in spreading this life changing knowledge and practices."”

Pravin Shah, Retired Engineer

““I’ve got a lot to do and there’s a lot of detail. That gets me wound up sometimes. I put into practice the buzzing bee a number of times. It was really helpful to bring a sense of calm and focus into that with this. Our office is downtown, but I went outside one time there, where we we have a locked area where I felt safe closing my eyes and taking in some sunshine. While I was doing the buzzing bee, I thought about, ‘okay, clear your mind, think about what you have to do, one task at a time.’ It was like the world stood still for a little bit. ​ I’ve been practicing the mantra about the hands. It has been a very good start to the day, to think, okay, I got a lot to do, but all it takes is one thought, and that one thought can lead to these great things. Turn those thoughts into action and you can reap a destiny. I really enjoyed that. Thank you for going above and beyond. The samples your brought us are appreciated. Love the alternative ideas regarding diet, medicine, and lifestyle.””

“"By learning through Ananta, I was reminded over and over again that my agency is my first blessing. Though most people will give me a prescription, my body is not a problem to be solved. My health is not something to be fixed, but instead to be understood and honored. Ananta asked me who I wanted to be and how I could be her. She encouraged me to understand my dimensions, to understand how big my being could be. She saw within me a light I had dulled. She reached out to that light. She comforted that light. She empowered that light to shine. I began to speak. I began to write. I began to share. I declared myself the artist, the poet, the storyteller that I am, with the clarity of who I want to be in this life. She continues to hold that light for me, reminding me of who I know myself to be. She continues to see the goddess within me that I am still learning to adorn with love and acceptance. ​ Ananta’s heart and vision are supplemented through the team of people and the intention through which she connects us all. This team, this program is a community, it is a garden. The fragrance of each person mesmerizes alone but surrenders itself to the much greater melody of the garden as a whole. Ananta and her team redefine love, wholeheartedly seeing each individual and holding the stories of each sacred."”

Shweta Bhatt, Artist and Former Consultant

““One of the things I really took away from Ananta's teachings was the exercise where you look at your hands and remind yourself that your energy, your power, everything is in your control. It really focuses the locus of control on you versus other people. If something bad happens, you can look at yourself like how can I control this? How can I make it better? You empower yourself if there was something bad. I thought that was so amazing. I do that every morning now. I wake up and sometimes my eyes are not even open, but I can see my hands, and I’m just empowering myself, and it really feels really good, so thank you.””

Kavey, Probation Officer

“"Ananta is a great teacher because she practices everything, she taught us. As an example, she invited us to her kitchen (virtually) and taught us how to cook which was amazing. We literally cooked along side with her via Zoom. I respect and admire her integrity. She is also very personable, and able to articulate the principles she teaches in a simplified way for us to learn easily and quickly. I love Ananta’s spirit and her energy, she always has a smile, always willing to help and her unwavering support and can-do attitude inspired me to also follow Ayurveda. I wanted what she has! ​ I recommend anyone wishing to take control of your physical and mental health, to give this program a try. The way Ananta structured the program, allows students to become “community buddies” and support each other while we’re learning, we became each others’ cheer leaders. Going through Ananta's program was a transformational experience for me, as it has given me the tools and spirituality to not only understand myself in terms of a physical being but also as a spiritual being. Once I was able to make the connection to my Higher Self, I learned to respect my body in such a way I have never thought before. This mental change made it easier for me to add Ayurveda practices to my everyday life consistently and reap the benefits. My digestion has improved, I have mental clarity and most importantly I have peace of mind."”

Suganthi Lem, Senior Construction & Public Transportation Manager

“"Ananta can be described as truly embodying her work. She naturally radiates a caring, wise, and loving aura. She clearly has a deep mastery of her subjects, and from the moment you begin taking her classes you will be receiving knowledge. The understanding and scholarly communication of Ananta is matched by her compassion and humility. You can tell Ananta sincerely cares about her students and their ability to process and effectively practice what she teaches. ​ I would recommend studying with Ananta and her teachers because the topics being taught are life changing, from the inside out. There is a nearly tangible aura of love and acceptance shared amongst her and her fellow contemporaries as well as with the students in her classes. Despite the large and vast ocean of spiritual wellness knowledge that can appear daunting at first, the classes are structured very clearly, the communication about what is expected is exact, and the immersion into each topic is easily digestible to the human intellect."”
