Anton Mackey

It has been said that I bring a lighthearted spirituality to my yoga classes. My personal practice is a spiritual journey towards becoming my highest self. My greatest passion is inspiring others to go inward and find a connection to their soul through the practice of yoga. My background is Anatomy & Physiology and love to incorporate it into my power/flow classes. My workshops are about inspiring others to take their practice to the next level with mindfulness and a deeper understanding of the human body.
Can’t wait to learn and share with you!
