Not many people can sum up their life philosophy in just one word, but for Anna Getty, it’s all about balance. It’s a remarkably simple word that drives a powerful concept: finding balance in work, art, leisure, and parenting. And, on a more fundamental level, finding it in the way you eat, drink, and live.
Anna Getty has played many roles over the course of her remarkable life: Actress. Fashion maven. Chef. Kundalini yoga teacher. Writer. Mother. Environmental Activist. And now green living and holistic lifestyle expert via her site PureStyleLiving.com.

Educated at the Sorbonne, and fluent in French, Italian and German, she returned to the U.S. to pursue her acting career. The Hollywood lifestyle, while offering its share of glamour, left her ultimately unfulfilled. “I didn’t feel I was being of service,” she reflects. “It was all about me.”

Anna decided to pursue an interest in cooking and became an assistant to revered organic chef Akasha Richmond, which gave her a deep understanding of the complexity, sophistication and healing powers of organic cuisine, and brought her to the world of yoga and
legendary yoga teacher Gurmukh Khalsa. It was then that Anna made a decision to not just live a healthy and balanced lifestyle, but to teach it to others. She became a certified Kundalini Yoga and Prenatal Yoga teacher and specializes in womens’ yoga, working on staff at Golden Bridge where she taught a variety of classes and workshops for 10 years.

Anna was pleased to unveil her debut DVD collection: Anna Getty’s Pre and Postnatal Yoga Workout, which launched nationwide in April of 2008. The DVD box set includes 2-discs, the first aimed at expectant mothers, with the goal of a graceful, peaceful birth for the child, while simultaneously providing peace, stretching and respite for the mother. The postnatal DVD, with the admirable goal of helping new moms meet their physical (and emotional) post-baby challenges.

Aiming to empower women with information, Anna founded along with her business partner Alisa Donner, Pregnancy Awareness Month or PAM in of May 2008. 2010 marks the third year of PAM. Through this month long campaign Anna provides “how to” ideas and inspiration to show women how easy it can be to make healthy changes in their lives.

The 1st is a green entertainment book for the holidays called I am Dreaming of a Green Christmas came out in November of 2009. The 2nd is a cookbook titled, Anna Getty’s Easy Green Organic due out in April of 2010.
