Change is Here Again

We have decided to stop with our classes at Parq Studios at the end of June and take a break for a while.
You can read all about it in our last newsletter.

The last class will be on June 30th. Come and enjoy those last classes with us!

Anat & Marcel’s Teacher Training programs are going on uninterrupted. They just got a new name: The Functional Yoga Teacher Training, or for short TFY Teacher Training. You can now find all the information in the new website: tfyteachertraining.com.

Functional Yoga

All teachers in our studio teach Functional Yoga: that means we are more interested in your experience than in how you look. We respect what makes you you. Your yoga practice should not try to make you into something you are not, but to stimulate you to become the best version of yourself possible.

We Believe…

that a sincere, dedicated yoga practice can make a huge difference in our lives, infusing it with energy, insight and purpose. We believe that the world needs warriors of compassion brave enough to look at themselves with absolute honesty, use fierceness to change what needs to be changed and kindness to embrace what cannot.

Our Students

are experienced, beginners, young, stiff, flexible, middle aged, seniors, pregnant, gay, straight, mothers, fathers, skinny, fat and all the variations in between. Each one of them is unique, and everyone needs a practice that embraces this uniqueness. There is no ideal to achieve: we hope to help them be the best version of whomever they chose to be.

Our Weekly Classes

Our studio in Amsterdam remains our home base and safe heaven. It is here that we find the ground and motivation to do our very best on a daily basis.



Trainings Abroad

Our training is nationally and internationally ackowledged as one of the top yoga trainings available in The Netherlands and abroad. Upcoming trainings are planned in Ghent (BE), Cadzand (NL), Portugal and Bergen (NL).

Teacher Trainings

Whether you wish to actually teach yoga or simply deepen your own understanding, a teacher training program can offer you a frame to learn, examine and practice in a safe and supportive environment. All our trainings are strongly based on anatomy and philosophy, the two pillars of a good yoga practice, and are taught a limited amount of times per year to preserve its quality and authenticity.
