Beyond just theory and practical learning, Anneriek’s teacher training truly invites you on a journey of self discovery. It is perfect not only for those who wish to teach yoga, but also for those (like me) who are looking to deepen their understanding and experience of yoga.
Module ‘Yoga Asana’ - Learning about the Benefits, Alignment Principles and Modifications of Yoga Poses
This very extensive module includes everything you need to know about yoga poses: Benefits, Alignment principles, Anatomical principles, Modifications, Adjustments, and more. We’ll be covering over 100 yoga poses and include salutations and warm up sequences . Poses included: Standing, Balancing poses, Core activation, Arm balancing, Backbones, Twists, Seated hip openers, and Inversions. Sample flows are provided as well to give you a flying start teaching your first classes.
Module 'Back to the Roots’ - Yoga Origin & Philosophy
What is yoga and where does it originate from. Understanding yoga philosophy, like the Vedas, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Upanishads, and the Bhagavad Gita. Gain an understanding of the background of this practice and the beautiful rich yoga philosophy.
Module ‘Alignment’ - Yoga Anatomy & Pose Alignment
Practical, applied, anatomy is essential for every yoga teacher. We'll learn terminology, the basic anatomy of our body, and anatomical movements. Analysis of anatomy in yoga poses, relating to body alignment, is an essential part of this module.
Module ‘The Subtle Yoga Body’ - Integration of Body, Mind & Spirit
The practice of yoga reveals that the body is in no way separate from the mind. In this module we provide a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body and mind. We'll study the subtle body to understand this integration.
Module ‘Awakening’ - Awakening of the Authentic Teacher
We will have a good look at ourselves. What is your ‘super power’? What are your qualities as a teacher? We’ll be aiming to find our authentic self and you’ll be looking at how you can set yourself up for success and create a more awakened life for yourself. In this module you'll also be looking at how you can take yoga ‘off the mat’ and into your daily life.
Module 'Yoga Beyond Asanas’ - Pranayama & Meditation
Yoga practice has so much more to offer when we look past the benefits of just practicing poses. We’ll be having a look at pranayama and meditation. Focus will be on gaining a deeper understanding of these practices/aspects, the various types of practices there are and on how you can incorporate these in your life and classes.
Module ‘Connection’ - Mastery of Adjustments
Learning how to adjust people takes a lot of practice and skill. We’ll explore the various types of adjustments and the various reasons to adjust. We will look at student assessments and the quality of touch. We will practice adjustments of many poses and get a deeper understanding of how to adjust different types of students. Additionally, we will have a look at the various types of props and how to best use them.
Module ‘The Art of Inspired Sequencing’ - Creating the Best Classes Possible
Whether a class is flowing or slow, a good class is a well sequenced class. We'll be going over the basic guidelines that you can use to sequence poses together and how to plan and structure a class. We will include a lot of practical application.
Module ‘Modifications’ - Teaching Special Groups, Special Conditions and Injuries
We'll be looking into teaching special groups (eg prenatal, kids, seniors) and students with special conditions (like low/high blood pressure, asthma, arthritis, trauma, depression) and injuries. We’ll discuss strategies on how to teach people safely. For this we’ll be looking at modifications to the yoga practices.
Module Yin Yoga - The Practice of Mindfulness
You’ll be introduced to teaching Yin Yoga, which is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. Subjects included are meridians, yin (myofascial) tissue, over 50 yin yoga poses and 12 sample sequences to get you started for your own yin practice or as a yin teacher.
Practical experience included:
Yoga practices (asana, pranayama or meditation),
Designing and Planning your class,
Observing and assisting
What Students Have To Say
Doing the 200hr YTT with Anneriek has been such an incredible journey, it has allowed me to dive deeply into my yoga practice and has taken me on an adventure of rediscovering my authentic self. I have felt nurtured, inspired, encouraged and fully supported to step outside my comfort zone and into my power.
Anneriek’s teaching style is engaging, encouraging and enthusiastic. She is so wise and authentic, her knowledge is so expansive and her patience knows no bounds. The teachings that she imparted were thorough and detailed, yet she delivered them in a way that was both fun and easy to understand. In addition, she invested so much of her time providing personalised mentoring and tailoring information for my specific needs.
I felt so supported throughout the whole training and really enjoyed sharing the journey with a wonderful group of other students. I will be forever grateful for the knowledge I gained and the personal growth I experienced while studying with Anneriek during my apprenticeship program. I would highly recommend Anneriek’s training to anyone looking to explore yoga from a new and deeper perspective.
I have enjoyed every part of the training, even the most challenging ones, and I am forever convinced that it is the best training I could have done.
Anneriek is a very passionate Yoga Teacher with a substantial knowledge of the physical body combined with a deep understanding of Yoga Philosophy. She is always authentic and genuine in her yoga classes as well as her Teacher Trainings, which creates a strong sense of inspiration for me.
During the YTT Anneriek provided us all the tools and skills we needed and as soon as I completed my level 1 Training, I felt confident to start teaching classes, knowing that I will always have the trust and the support of my mentor.
Anneriek’s teacher training program is a perfect balance between being comprehensive and easily digestible. We covered so many different modules from the basics such as history and philosophy to anatomy and application. More importantly, Anneriek cares about you. That’s why she had a whole module about becoming an authentic yoga teacher which invited us students to look inward and not only find our own voice, but proudly own it. By the end of the training, I felt ready to jump in and teach my first class. So, I did.
When you undertake Anneriek’s training, you’ll learn more than what you signed up for and you can take it all both on and off the mat.
