Choosing to take my 200hr YTT with the YogaRevolutionAcademy led by Anabel was one of the decisions I would take over and over again. Beyond delivering on the fundamentals of yoga in an inviting non-dogmatic way, teaching asanas, philosophy, anatomy, pranayama and the usual requirements of the training, Anabel pushed us to discover parts of ourselves we did not know existed. She allowed us to gently and safely go above and beyond all the physical /mental limitations we may have imposed on ourselves during years of practice and self-judgment. Constantly preaching safety first and mind-body awareness, we learnt to maintain a safe sustainable practice and take joy and pride in practicing every day.
Anabel inhales love and exhales compassion. I honestly can not imagine taking this training somewhere else. Should she offer a 300hr YTT, I will undoubtedly enroll in it no matter the geographic location. Why? For someone who has practiced yoga in so many different places, this was the first time that I meet someone who embodies the yoga of heart in and out: Anabel is so strong, graceful yet extremely grounded and humble. She is very dedicated to her students and her practice that it is so beautiful to experience and be part of. I could go on and on, but I’d just say if you are looking for a transformative journey where you not only become a certified yoga teacher but also a source of love and compassion to yourself and others: look no further!

10 Star experience! Yoga Revolution Academy far surpassed my expectations.
The basics: Resort was located on beautiful well kept grounds in a tropical setting only a mile from the beach. It is guard gated which always made me feel safe. The rooms were large and well appointed. The food was vegan and spectacular every time.
The training: Anabel was nothing short of amazing on every level. Her passion for what she does and for the people she teaches oozes out of her soul. She is patient and empathetic, knowledgeable and encouraging. Her understanding of Sanskrit flows out of her mouth like a beautiful song. Anabel knows the history and legends of yoga from its inception. As a Christian I struggled some with the yoga gods and beliefs and she let me take it in and apply what was necessary for me with no judgement. She brought in guest lecturers that are top in their field in Anatomy and Physiology, Ayurvedic Teachings and Acro-yoga. We were challenged from day one mentally and physically. She did not have to push us to do anything. With her guidance and expertise we felt empowered by her and each other to do things we would have never dreamed possible.
The memories: I met 10 amazing women from all over the world that will be in my heart forever. What happened over those 3 weeks was Devine. I walked away with more head knowledge and heart knowledge than I could imagine and 10 women who have imprinted on my love.
