For me, Annemaree's yoga class has helped me in my own time address the way I was living my life and how off- balance it was. I would walk into class highly strung and stressed and walk out transformed. I was always surprised at the contrast and decided enough was enough - it was time to focus on how to make my everyday life feel like a yoga class. Life is too short to work 24/7 in an unsatisfying stressful job. So for me this has meant a career change. It hasn't been easy but because of meditation and Annemaree's teachings I am now learning to listen to my heart and intuition and I now know I am following the right path for me. I vow never to go back to my old lifestyle as it was just a dead end. Whether you are looking for a healthier lifestyle, ways to relax and de-stress or even feel a bit lost, I urge you to give yoga a go and stick with it because while the transformation may not be immediate, after a while you will begin to notice changes in your body and the way you see things. Over the two years I have been a student, I have loved seeing how flexible I have become. But more importantly these classes have helped me uncover what I truly want in life. Yoga and meditation will always be in my life. Thank you Annemaree.

Just wanted to say thank you for what you do. As a guy I took up yoga reluctantly after a back injury from many years of cycling and the rotating door of the physio. Beginning yoga as a man can be quite intimidating and I originally practiced independently with very little guidance. Since being introduced to you, Annemaree, I have found your approach refreshing and adaptable with the initial focus being to provide a physically challenging practice without the more spiritual and meditative aspects of yoga. As and when I have expressed a desire to broaden my knowledge you have introduced many different techniques to enhance my understanding of yoga. The results speak for themselves as I have stopped seeing the physio, feel physically stronger and a lot less stressed from the daily grind of life. You have improved my quality of life through your practical approach to teaching, thank-you!

As a complete beginner, I had tried to establish a (daily) Yoga practice so many times that I had decided that the discipline just wasn't for me. However, after starting to train with Annemaree in Hatha Yoga almost by accident, (I accepted a one month free trial offer to participate in a new multi-discipline clinic), I soon found out that here was a style that I could enjoy and make progress with. To my pleasant surprise I achieved significant results in health and flexibility without feeling that I was 'busting a gut' to do so. The classes were well structured to push you only as far as you wanted to go and the combination of gentle stretching and relaxation at the end left my mind clear and my body fresh and energetic. It was not long before I found myself going because I felt I 'needed to go' rather than feeling that I 'ought to go'. I strongly recommend this teacher and this style to anyone who is new to the discipline and interested in finding out what it's about; or anyone who has trained in yoga before but has not achieved what they were hoping to.
