Anke loves her life in beautiful San Diego. In 2000 Anke had been experiencing knee pain for 5 years and, after surgery and physical therapy, the medical doctors were unable to help. Their answer was “You are just going to have to live with it.” Anke did not accept this answer. Determined that there had to be a way to heal, Anke started a regular yoga practice. Within two months her pain had vanished to the point where she became a triathlete and was able to complete three half Ironman and several smaller distance triathlons free of pain - thanks to yoga! Through yoga she became keenly aware of the body-mind-spirit connection and realized that everything is energy; within us, around us, we are all connected through the same energy field and we are one. This was the beginning of Anke’s path as a healer. Fascinated with feeling the energy in her own body, animals and crystals, Anke learned kinesiology (muscle testing) and became certified as Intuitive Healer and Medical Intuitive. She practiced hands on energy healing in New York and many of her clients affirmed that pain that they had been struggling with for years was gone after their session with Anke. Yet Anke was yearning for a deeper healing modality that would create long lasting change and healing on all levels, not just the physical body. Her quest was answered when she heard about ThetaHealing®. She immediately knew that this was the modality that she was going to work with, registered for the Basic ThetaHealing® workshop that weekend and gave her first ThetaHealing® session three days later. Anke has been a certified ThetaHealing® Practitioner since 2007 and Instructor since 2008 and cannot imagine her life without ThetaHealing®, as it is a wonderful tool not just for physical and emotional healing, but also to integrate experiences and dreams into our whole being, feel clarity, peace and unconditional love. Anke founded her company Release Into Bliss, LLC in 2008 with the intention to help people heal physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. After practicing yoga for nine years, Anke became a certified Yoga Instructor under Bhava Ram and Laura Plumb of Deep Yoga in San Diego in 2009. She created Theta Yoga, a gentle Hatha yoga practice combined with ThetaHealing, in 2011. In the same year, Anke also became a Way of the Heart Practitioner. In 2012, she became a Reiki Level 1 Practitioner. Anke is passionate and committed to empower people to create change for themselves and the planet by letting go of limitations and manifesting the health and life they deserve. She believes that anything is possible and anything can heal and has been able to help people heal worldwide. Anke loves animals and enjoys facilitating ThetaHealing® for animals that are in need of physical or emotional healing as well. In her free time, Anke enjoys spending time with her life mate, her two cats and dog, practicing yoga and meditation, connecting with the ocean, swimming, biking, running, volunteering at a local animal shelter and just being - in gratitude, in the flow, in love, joy and peace.
