What The Students Have To Say
Anneriek's passion and inspiration is only matched by her unique ability to make even the most difficult and complex concepts understandable (and fun) to learn. My time with Anneriek was spent laughing and learning, while making life long friends. An irreplaceable experience!
This Level 2 teacher training helped me to overcome my fear of not been good enough to be a teacher.
Anneriek will guide and inspire you as she challenges you to find your core qualities, teaching style and your authentic self. She is a strong, compassionate, knowledgeable & driven teacher trainer. Her 'encouragement without judgment' teaching style will help you bring out your full potential.
I still use my teacher training handbooks to plan my classes and to help me bring the philosophy of yoga into my classes which is very important to me. Anneriek has been there for me way past the end of your training.
Through the years I have touched on yoga but it wasn’t until I came across Anneriek and her teachings that encouraged me to fully embody my yoga practice. That embodiment went further through Anneriek’s encouragement into becoming a Yoga Teacher.
Anneriek’s teaching has enabled me to grow deeply, letting go of the judgements that have limited me in the past. I have completed my Level 1 & 2 Yoga Teacher Training together with my Advanced Yin Yoga Trainings with Anneriek. Through all my training, Anneriek has been a supportive mentor. I am enriched with her continual support.
Anneriek is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of yoga and life skills. She is easy to communicate with and is always there when advice is needed. I can not thank her enough for the facilitation of the transformation I have journeyed through.
Studying to be a yoga teacher with Anneriek surprised me in ways I was not expecting. The talks and insights helped me grow, my personal practice has deepened and I learned that preparation is key to good teaching and sequencing. But perhaps the biggest lesson for me was being able to embrace my authenticity and finding my own teaching style.
The passion for yoga I already had, but during the teacher training experience Anneriek helped instil a sense of wonder and the desire to facilitate growth for my students. I'll be forever thankful for this lesson.
Teacher training with Anneriek was amazing and it’s a journey that keeps on unfolding! The confidence she imparts, coupled with the excellent resources, has given me the skills to deepen my own journey and to connect with my students in a skilful and insightful way.
