Anton Brandt

When not standing on his hands, most of Anton’s adult life has been spent traveling the world, with the common thread linking his varied life experiences being a search for the extraordinary. From founding a sustainable footwear brand, to working with the pop-band Scissor Sisters, his yoga practice kept him grounded along the way. Eventually that practice turned into a life long dedication, and since then he’s travelled the world exploring various modalities, from Kundalini Kriyas to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga & Vipassana Meditation. Anton is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance, E-RYT) with 1000+ hours of training. He seamlessly blends meditation, pranayama, & asana together with a sense of lightness, laughter, and ease.


Anton’s classes are fluid, dynamic, intelligent, and physically demanding. He’s a featured contributor to Teach.Yoga, GaiamTV & MyYoga, and has been profiled in various publications, including GQ, GQ Japan, Mantra Magazine, YogaCityNYC and Angeleno Magazine. Anton lives & teaches in NYC, and is the founder of The Sacred Fig, facilitating retreats & teacher trainings around the world. For more information, visit
