Meet Anneriek Favelle
I am a Senior Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher, Somatic Movement and Dance Therapist, Inner Growth & Relational Life Coach, Teacher Trainer, Creator of The Goddess Sequences and The Shiva Sequences, Owner of ‘Balanced in Being’ and ‘Yoga4You’.
I embrace the belief that the world can become a better place when we wholeheartedly accept ourselves for who we are and genuinely show up for one another.
As a dedicated yoga and somatic movement teacher, I like to guide students on a transformative journey towards self-discovery, self-acceptance, and mindful embodiment. My teaching style is rooted in the belief that the body, mind, and spirit are interconnected. Through the practices of yoga and somatic movement, we can harmonise and nurture this holistic connection. With a gentle yet empowering approach, I encourage students to explore their unique expressions, honouring their bodies' wisdom, and cultivating a sense of authenticity and acceptance.
Through my teachings, you will experience a blend of yoga postures, breathwork, meditation, and somatic movement techniques. By combining these modalities, I create a safe and inclusive space where you can delve deep into your physical and emotional sensations, unearthing layers of self-awareness and self-love.
With a profound belief in the transformative power of acceptance and authenticity, I strive to create a supportive community that fosters connection, empathy, and a deep understanding of yourself and others. Through my teachings, I invite you to embark on an inward journey of self-exploration, embracing vulnerability, and awakening your true potential.
The idea of a program that helps connect to and celebrate the feminine qualities came to me shortly after the passing of my mum. A hard time in which I felt I needed to explore my own feminine side and connect to my own inner goddess. As my journey developed, I decided to create a program as an invitation for others to unravel their own inner Goddess. This was the birth of The Goddess Sequences.
From here, I became more and more aware that my imbalance was not just the lack of the feminine essence but also (perhaps especially...) my own imbalanced masculine energy. It became clear for me that our patriarchal society in is dire need of balance and that there is so little guidance for this! This was the inspiration for a similar series for the masculine, The Shiva Sequences.
My aim is to explain yoga philosophy in an understandable yet profound and practical way. Each class reflects the energy of a goddess/god, allowing you to recognise your own strengths and to face your shadows, connecting to yourself in a deeper and kinder way. Creating awareness to take with you off the mat.
With over 2 decades of experience, teaching various styles of yoga and training many teachers in various points of their teaching journey, I consider myself a 'teacher's teacher', aiming to make a profound impact on the world.
