What others say about this training
Linda ~“The TT was an amazing journey for me. I have learnt a lot, not only about the art of teaching yoga, but also to enjoy my yoga practice much more than ever. The group was just perfect, we were so different from each other, each of us with different motivations and intentions, and this created a synergy that makes me smile just thinking about it. A big THANK and an even bigger hug to our unforgettable teachers, Marlene and Fleur, who made the magic possible.With love!”
Tjalline ~ “This teacher training brought me in contact with my true self. Sometimes that was a bit confronting but under the sweet and clear quidance of Fleur and Marlene it felt really safe. This training also really inspired me. Both Fleur and Marlene are such creative teachers. The philosphy classes by Fleur were one of my favorite moments!I Will always hold a special place in my heart for those two.”
Eva ~ “De vinyasa yoga teacher training die ik gevolgd heb bij Marlene en Fleur, heb ik ervaren als een life changing experience die ik NOOIT had willen missen! Marlene en Fleur zijn twee warme, prachtige, wijze en inspirerende yogi’s die te alle tijden voor je klaar staan en je op zo’n liefdevolle wijze empoweren om de yoga docent te worden die je kan zijn. Alle vragen die ik ooit had over een asana, anatomie en de filosofie aangaade yoga, zijn beantwoord. Ik heb zo ontzettend veel geleerd over yoga…én niet te vergeten over mijzelf. Ik kan dan ook niets anders dan deze teacher training zeer aanbevelen. Wil je een ervaring om nooit te vergeten? Groeien en bloeien tot de max? Ik zou zeggen: stort je erin én zoals Marlene en Fleur altijd zeiden: ‘Trust the process.”

I am a passionate, certified, experienced senior Vinyasa Yoga Teacher who loves to share the beauty of yoga and to create a platform to help people truly experience their BEST LIFE!
Coming from a bohemian up-bringing, I found myself after a more wild lifestyle, falling in love with the beauty of dance. After some years of being a dancer, yoga came on my path and soon I discoverd, Vinyasa Yoga. Yoga has taught me to accept myself with all my flaws. Yoga has taught me to be strong and gentle and to deal with life and that it is okay to be nicely flavored but most of all to be an authentic person with lots of love and sharing the gifts. Throughout my yoga journey, teachers like Shiva Rea, Janet Stone and Julie Martin have inspired me. When finding my own style of teaching yoga, I loved to bring movement into the postures. I am not a dogmatic, traditional teacher, but will always look for a personal expression, look for what is needed now. For me, yoga is not about holding on to tradition but allowing it to change and move into new forms.
Marlene has become a renowned name in the Yoga world in the Netherlands and is a senior and experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT500) who teaches classes, workshops, training modules for teacher trainings, ” The Art of Sequencing Module” and “The Core Flow Module” and is a leading teacher in several level 1 and level 2 teacher trainings in the Netherlands.
Fleur van Zonneveld
Being a dancer, the body always has been fascinating to me. So much I have learned about that body during my time in dance academy and after, being a dancer. And then I found out about yoga…It felt so familiar, but yet so different. The more yoga I experienced the more I discovered that behind that body, there is much more to be found. Yoga is a way to go on an adventure within yourself! So that’s what I did. And still do every day. After my first Ashtanga based Teacher Training I learned how big yoga was, and how much more there was to be discovered and experienced and learned. So after doing many workshops and immersions with Ana Forrest, Clive Sheridan, Katchie Ananda and more I went to India and did another training. A 400h Vinyasa Flow. I dove into yoga philosophy inspired tremendously by the classes of Emile Wendell. More workshops, trainings and advanced studies followed (also in the field of yoga therapy and yoga nidra) And all the time I kept coming back at my yoga home; svaha yoga. Here my yoga roots were planted a long time ago, by Gösta.
Teaching yoga, or rather sharing the never-ending study of yoga, is my passion. After more then 10 years of teaching, it still makes my heart jump every day.
What made me want to be a dancer was to get people out of their daily lives and bring them to a place where dreams still exist and limitations don’t. My goal in teaching yoga lies not so far from that.
For me yoga is a way to investigate, to bring you back towards yourself. So in every yoga class I create a space where you can go on a little journey, an adventure with and within yourself and finding out more about yourself. From there we create a bridge towards everyday life, so life can be experienced in a more conscious way. While discovering also the power of non-doing practices such as restorative yoga and yoga Nidra, My Vinyasa classes move and flow, just as the breath does, just as life does!
