Workshop Leaders

Ann-Sophie Briest

It has always been Ann-Sophie’s aspiration to bridge the modern, scientific knowledge of the West with the ancient, experiential wisdom of the East. As a medical doctor, yoga therapist (C-IAYT), yoga teacher (RYS-500), and a yoga practitioner (ten years’ experience), her expertise lies in the field of therapy.

Ann-Sophie understands that health refers to all levels of the being. As such, her teachings and treatments reflect a purely integrative approach.

On a personal level, her sense of being “healthy and alive” is enhanced by being in the company of loving friends and family, spending time in nature, and regular meditation practice.

Anneke Louise

Anneke is an enthusiast of life, connectivity, and that which drives humans to evolve and aspire. This motivated her to pursue an international career in sustainable business and talent development. It also fueled her passion for yoga.

Anneke has experienced yoga’s deep healing power on many occasions—first as a fervent practitioner and student, and later as a teacher. Finally, her passion got the better of her, and from this, Samarasa Healing was born.

As a yoga and meditation practitioner, a Hridaya Yoga teacher (HTTC 2015), and a certified yoga therapist, Anneke now offers workshops and teacher trainings internationally. Ann-Sophie understands that health refers to all levels of the being. As such, her teachings and treatments reflect a purely integrative approach.
