Anahata Academy

“Collaboration gives the freedom to come out form the narrow scopes of life to the field of endless possibilities.” ― Amit Ray

Anahata Collaborative fosters creativity, beauty, community, well-being, reaching for the stars, and building heart centered businesses.

We believe when entrepreneurs are at their best and creating their business from their heart center, anything is possible.


What is Anahata Academy?

Anahata Academy is a year-long curriculum delivered online and in-person to support and educate heart centered entrepreneurs. We are a variety of creatives and wellness workers building our businesses. The curriculum is based around four pillars: business, well-being, unblocking creative flow and inspiration, and doing good. A new class is posted every Monday focusing on one of these four topics. Our hope is that over a year, you are able to grow your business with the tools you learn, be able to take care of yourself while you do this, open up to creative flow and inspiration, and help others in your community along the way.

Anahata Academy is for heart-centered entrepreneurs building their heart-centered businesses! Our one of a kind curriculum has been developed to help you grow in FOUR areas of your life over one whole year. Yes, we could focus on only one area, but if you're anything like us you will work really hard in that one area for a month only to find you've let everything else slip (eg: Work, work, work, work...wait, why did I just gain 10 lbs, can't sleep at night and can't remember anything?)...RIGHT?! We are breaking up the curriculum into actionable areas, and easy to digest pieces which over one year will bring about significant growth. Your business will be growing, your well-being will be on pointe, your creativity will be brimming, and you will have made a significant difference in your community by doing good, and you will have met some remarkable people. Sound amazing? It is!!!!

Mondays with Anahata Academy:

Start your week off inspired and ready to rolL every week.

Each month will be formatted as such:

  • 1st Monday of the month: Business (such as Goal setting, Time Management, Branding, Marketing, Social Media, Communications, Legal, Documentation, etc..)

  • 2nd Monday of the month: Well-being (Learning to take care of yourself and manage your own well-being while being a busy heartpreneur)

  • 3rd Monday of the month: Creativity/Inspiration  (following The Artist's Way curriculum to remove blocks and let inspiration flow! into your life and your business)

  • 4th Monday of the month: Doing Good  (Spending some time doing something for others in and around your community)

  • 5th Monday of the month (if applicable): Free day! DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF! The studio will be open from 10am-9pm for in-studio students.

We even did the math for you: at the end of the year there will have been 48 classes!... FORTY EIGHT! 

We chose Mondays for a reason. This way you can gather motivation, inspiration, actionable goals to carry out through the rest of the week. Then the following Monday, you do it all over again to carry you through the next week. We want these Mondays with Anahata Academy to be an integral part of your week.

When joining the Academy, you commit to yourself and our community for one year. Enrollment is open in January and then closes for the rest of the year. The purpose behind this is to have a constant, reliable, enthusiastic community who is in it to win it for the year. We hope this group becomes like a family for you and that we can all grow together whether you are participating in-studio or online. So if you are ready to commit to a YEAR of growth and amazing-ness, you're in the right place! Having a community within which to work helps create structures and discipline which is motivating. Too much autonomy can cripple productivity because people lack routines.  Our creative community allows members to adopt an environment inclusive of invigorating thoughts while executing their work, feeling supported and inspired while still being held accountable, and gaining a broader network and skill set through community. We exercise inclusivity at Anahata Collaborative so Anahata Academy is open to all humans

Tuition is billed monthly on the 1st of the month for 12 months:

  • Online: $39/mth
  • In-Studio: $149/mth
