Module 3: The Subtle Yoga Body - Integration of Body, Mind & Spirit

Module 4: 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 we’ll be looking at how you can set yourself up for success and create a more awakened life for yourself. In this modules we'll also be looking at how you can take yoga ‘off the mat’ and into the daily life. 

Module 5: Yoga Beyond Asanas - Pranayama & Meditation

Yoga practice has so much more to offer when we look past the benefits of 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.

Module 6: 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.

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.


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 was lucky enough to share 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 12 month apprenticeship program. I would highly recommend Anneriek’s training to anyone looking to explore yoga from a new and deeper perspective. 



Completing my Level 2 YTT with Anneriek was the most inspiring and enjoyable time I've had during my Yogic journey. Anneriek's passion for teaching is infectious and completely reinvigorated me every time I entered her beautiful shala. This 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! 



Yoga4You’s teacher training apprenticeship was presented and taught by Anneriek in a way that was easy to learn and also practically able to participate in at the same time as an apprentice teacher. 


Her thorough explanation of yoga and its anatomy and principles was so clear and easy to understand it made it easy for me to learn. I am glad i undertook this method of teacher training as i got to go away and read and research our teachings and also teach my friends and practice my skills over the apprenticeship period with my fellow teachers whom i have now made life long friends with. Anneriek has been amazing and support not only during my training but also continuously mentors me till this day. Highly recommend apprenticeship yoga training with Anneriek she is a very well educated yoga teacher with such a kind and spiritual heart!
