A day with enthusiasm is a day lived
Hi, I’m Anna-Lena, but most people call me “Shama.” Originally from Sweden, I moved to the United States in 1991 with my family and have lived in California for many years. I currently live at the off-grid regenerative center Heartland Collective in Northern California, which I co-founded with my son, Anders. I enjoy blending my Swedish heritage into life with the other cultures that are represented at Heartland.
I’ve dedicated over five decades to health, wellness, and personal growth. As a physical therapist, yoga teacher, and movement practitioner, including in Non-Linear Movement and Ritual Shamanic Trance Dance, I see myself as a bridge between being stagnant in life to finding joy and grace in the aging process. It takes commitment, humor, and courage to change old patterns. Additionally, I’m an avid golfer and the only woman to have completed the Awesome 8 Golf Challenge. One of my current goals is to shoot my age.
Through sharing my story, communicating my learnings, and connecting with others (and dancing along the way!) I hope to inspire people to take charge of their lives and achieve their full potential. I would love to connect with you.
