Anthea Grimason

Director of Strategic Marketing
Senior Health Coach

Anthea has been an avid student at the center since 2008, a connection she made shortly after discovering yoga where she grew up in Dublin, Ireland. After many personal visits, she started to work full-time at Samahita in 2014 as part of the teaching team while also supporting business growth. Now based in California she continues to put her heart and soul into spreading the good word about the center and what is offered, with a deep understanding of how Samahita can support transformation in people’s lives, from both her own experiences and observing many guests over the years. Anthea also works directly with people as a health coach and 1100+ hour certified yoga teacher.

Anthea’s past careers include sales, human resources and change management. While initial academic studies were in languages & literature, all her studies and teachings since 2007 have focused on health and yogic practices — Reiki, yoga, meditation, pranayama, detox, health coaching, Ayurveda and functional medicine. Anthea feels extremely fortunate to have been able to create an meaningful life of self-discovery focused on practice and sharing her passions around the world to help others.
