    My time with Zanzi Yoga was more incredible than I could have imagined. Marisa and her team led us through a journey of philosophy, anatomy and asana. I left feeling extremely confident in my expanded knowledge both in body and mind as well as my teaching ability. Not only is the setting pure magic but my experience as a whole changed and shaped my journey through yoga in ways I could never have thought. If I could do it over again I would to feel the vibe created and immerse myself all over again. Highly recommend all yogis interested in a well run YTT200 to join the Zanzi tribe!

    ‘Art & Science in Yoga’ is a carefully curated teacher training in Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga based yoga. Marisa van Vuuren is a warm, calm and knowledgable teacher with inspiring creative flows who establishes a solid foundation amongst her students by preparing them for self-practice of Ashtanga. Her course program is delivered with great passion and an admirable attention to detail, mixing in elements of science with more traditional yoga philosophy, history, pranayama and the physical practice. She prepares students to teach safely, underlining the importance of anatomy, thoughtful sequencing, modifications and detailed cues. The geographic location offer a beautiful serene setting and attracts a mix of people from all over the world. It's a perfect place to look inwards or to connect with nature, simplicity and the humbling energy of the local population. I've revisited Zanzi yoga for 5 years and completed this teacher training RYT200h twice. I feel great gratitude towards Marisa who's inspired me to continue my self-study both on and off the mat. Asante sana for your beautiful teachings.

    The Zanzi Yoga 200 hour YTT was absolutely fantastic. Marisa Van Vuuran delivered a thorough, thoughtful, well organized training that gave me the confidence and skills needed to start teaching yoga on my own. The training covered physical and energetic anatomy, asana and the art of adjustments, pranayama, meditation, philosophy and history, how to design, sequence and teach yoga classes including modification and observation, meditation, and an intense practicum. The training was inclusive and catered to the diverse needs and levels of the teachers in training. The beach/ocean setting and food/accommodation were an added plus. I would highly recommend the Zanzi Yoga 200 hour YTT.

    Training Program held on Jun 04, 2017—Jul 02, 2017

    I can only and full heartedly recommend Zanzi Yoga. Whereas the first appeal of this training might be the location it is held at, the actual beauty of it is Marisa, her never ending knowledge and willingness to dive deeper, the comprehensive content of the course and the feeling of really wanting to go out there and teach afterwards. Marisa is an absolutely empowering teacher and gives every student the space to shine! I am extremely grateful for the inspiration and empowerment this training gave me, for being able to discover teaching yoga as a passion of mine and being given all the space to do so.

    • Syllabus Reflection

      To what extent do you feel this program met the following learning objective; The student will become confident with human anatomy within the context of teaching yoga

      The syllabus at Zanzi Yoga is very comprehensive and - after sharing my experiences with other yoga teachers - offers much more diversity and depth than the trainings they had attended. As one of my teacher friends put it: "I had to attend several trainings to get the content you were getting." There was enough time to deal with the different topics in depth and to ask questions, get clarifications and extra knowledge and input. The programme was very well structured whilst giving and leaving room for personal development.
