About Johnson

Johnson Anand Saurabh is currently traveling and teaching yoga and mindful living in Asia and has the fortune of interacting with like minded spiritual seekers on a daily basis. Life has been full of twists and turns taking him on an adventurous path, guiding him around the world in search for a deeper connection to Source. Having found a niche on the path of Yoga and inspired by other mind + body templates like Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais Method and Pilates, he inevitably found a "way in" through healing modalities like Thai bodywork, Ayurvedic Massage, Reiki and Anya Touchwork. As an eternal student, practitioner and teacher of all these things , Curriculum AUM provides a venue to explore the intricate layering of each one as an integrative pursuit of nourishing the soul. Johnson has a BFA in acting and strives to unify his creativity with his intuitive practices. He is delighted to witness the expansion of Studio Anya into the digital realm. The Anya mission and Sagebook will undoubtedly provide opportunities for all inner artists to blossom up and outwards in full actualization.

Secular S.E.L.F: (S.ecular E.go’s L.egislated F.rame) and True S.E.L.F (S.ublimely E.mbracing L.ove/F.reedom)

Across the board in all major traditions, there is a very evident cultivation of the Self to be the best version that one can possibly be.  Rites of passage into manhood or womanhood exist in all kinds of varying customs and cultural variations, all with the emphasis on growth and heading towards or becoming a fuller version of who one already is.

Embrace C.O.M.F.O.R.T (C.ompassionate O.fferings M.ade F.or’s R.elief/T.ransmutation)

“If it is one man’s karma to suffer, isn’t it our dharma (duty) to help ease his suffering and pain?” Sri Mata Amritananda-mayi Ma

Whether we identify with the head over heels Romantic or the naysaying critic, how we experience love depends on our individual story.
