Anneriek Favelle

I believe we all have the qualities within ourselves to live a healthy and fulfilled life. When we harness our intuition, let go of our inner judgements and fears, we can heal ourselves and see how beautiful and strong we really are. We can become our authentic selves and it is this authentic self that will create a connection to like minded people, people who will support you on your path. People who will encourage and inspire you to become your true self Yoga can help you on this path...

Yoga is a tool to help you understand how wonderful you already are. Through my teaching I like to facilitate inner growth and a sense of connection. I'd like to give people an opportunity to let go of their self-judgement and just look at themselves with great appreciation. To connect their breath and movement, their body and mind, to find their inner power.

I like to work around the individual needs of my students, working at different levels. Allowing everyone to find their own path, creating a deep understanding of what is good for YOU.

I am a Level 3 Senior Registered Teacher with Yoga Australia and have practiced yoga for over 17 years and taught for over 15 years. I completed over 1000 hours of training, and am certified in both Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin yoga.

Recently I have completed an advanced international teacher training with Mark Stephens (California) in order to develop further skills to mentor and teach other yoga teachers.

In my teaching I like to offer strong classes where students are challenged in order to find strength and self belief. My teaching is filled with energy and joy. New and challenging poses fascinate me, however nothing gives me more joy than working on foundational poses and experiencing how extremely challenging these ‘basic’ postures are when practiced correctly.

The balance yoga offers in strength and flexibility of both body and mind is truly amazing.

 



Anneriek Favelle instructs the following:
  • Warm Flow
  • Room Temp. = 29°C

    This warm class will aim to build heat from the inside as you flow through a similar structure to our Hot Yoga classes, with the heat turned down just a little.

    In the style of Vinyasa Yoga, asanas will be linked together with the breath in a sequence built to feel like a dance. For more information on the elements of yoga that this class will cover, please see the Teacher's bio.

    This class is suitable for all levels, though if you have concerns, please arrive early and speak to your Teacher. 

     


  • Hot Flow
  • Room Temp. = 36°C
     
    This modern style of yoga uses traditional teachings and ideas, in a modern setting to create unity in mind, body and breath.
     
    Hot Yoga uses infrared heating to promote healing of soft tissues and joints. This type of heat nurtures muscles and promotes healthy circulation, can help reduce swelling and increase flexibility.
     
    This setting makes for a challenging practice, during which you will be encouraged to deepen your understanding of your breath, your body, its limits, and this life. 
     
    Please refer to the Teachers bio to further understand the elements of yoga that will be included in this class, individual to the background and training of each of our Teachers.
     
    Suitable for all levels, all classes can be modified to suit beginners or long term practitioners. Please arrive early to speak to the Teacher if you have any concerns.

  • Yin Yang Fusion
  • Room Temp. = 28°C 
     
    Move & Stretch.
     
    Join us for a fusion of 30 minute 'Yang' style strength, movement and breath to get the body warm, then move into 30 minutes of deep 'Yin' style of deep stretching and 3 to 5 minute seated holds, to lengthen and open fascia around your joints. 

    Suitable for all levels, this class has the best of both worlds and will leave you feeling brand new. If you have any concerns or injuries, please arrive early and chat to your Teacher.


  • Yin Yoga
  • Room Temp. = 27°C
     
    Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

    Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine.

    While initially this style of yoga can seem quite boring, passive, or soft, yin practice can be quite challenging due to the long duration of the poses. We can remain in the postures anywhere from three to five minutes! Yin and yang tissues respond quite differently to being exercised. You need to experience this to really know what Yin Yoga is all about. After you have experienced it, even just once, you will realize that you have been doing only half of the asana practice.
