Dear beautiful teachers,
I want to thank you from all my heart for hosting this teacher training online. It has been an incredible experience and I am very grateful and pleased at the same time that I chose you guys and that you made it possible in this current situation. Since the first day, you all have truly inspired me. Your kind words, your radiating energy and your love and passion for what you do. It is wonderful to see that you all are doing what you enjoy and that you are following your yogic path.
I want to thank you all for the great job you have done. The preliminary material and the books we read before the training prepared us well. All of you express yourself very clear and leave no space for misunderstanding or unanswered questions. I also want to congratulate you for the good administration and IT work. It all worked out great and we had no problems at all. So, on one side, I wanted to thank you for the great job you do as teachers. On the other side, I want to express my gratitude for you in your essence. You are all amazing human beings and I feel blessed that you are my teachers, that you are the ones who helped me take my first steps into this direction. Thank you for speaking to us from your heart, for being true and forever supportive. You all are a gift for this world and I wish you the best.
Pure Magic. This was by far the most unforgettable experience I’v ever had. We all learned so much about yoga, teaching and ourselves. The transformation we all went through was truly amazing. Everyone came out of this better, stronger and with the tools to let our lights shine in this world. The ashram became a home to all of us. Thanks to Mansovar, Maria and Ariel. And of course mama Vicky’s homemade vegetarian meals that were made with so much love. We laughed, we cried, we grew together. I would do this training 10 times again with the same group. It was perfect. I wouldn’t change it for anything.
Ariel is a teacher who shares her energy in a way that helps her students tune their vibrations to a higher level, even without words. She is a powerful teacher because her teaching style is simple, straightforward, easy to follow, yet unmistakably effective and profound. It is rare (in my experience) to find a teacher who can simultaneously instruct students of different levels in a meaningful way. She teaches in 3D. As a good teacher should, she brings her students to a peak without forcing them to endure the struggle of finding the way there on their own. Her teaching style is infused with ‘short-cuts’ that once experienced, impart the knowledge of the full journey of discovery. It’s a very powerful experience!
When Ariel does share her words, as in the MOST touching class of my life (I will NEVER forget it!), during asana workshops, when giving feedback after our teaching practice, they hit a place that is profoundly deep and meaningful! They are as if they come from within the listener. They are eternal truths, put so simply that they empower the listener to simply awaken the guide within. They go straight to the heart and, from there, unleash a powerful energy in all the places of tension around the body and mind. The three words I use to describe Ariel as a teacher- Insightful, intuitive, and wise’.
I met Ariel during a yoga teacher training in Mallorca in Dec 2018 as she was one of the teachers on the course- You did an amazing job explaining everything in detail and professionally. You were very patient with us. I really love how you made us feel safe.
Your positive and loving energy could always be felt! I really enjoyed having you as my teacher and because of you, I feel confident enough to start my teaching journey. Thank you for everything.
“From my very first class, I knew Ariel would change the way I flowed through yoga going forward. She made sure we were all safe, strong and progressing in our practice in a way that someone who had never been to a class would have benefitted just as much as someone who had done yoga since birth. Her disposition brings a sense of calm over a room but she’s also known to crack a good joke. It never feels like “you must do this or you are a bad yogi” every part of her practice and teaching was delivered perfectly to educate and improve everyone individually. She knows a million ways to explain one concept which ensures everyone will be able to grasp it. Ariel’s class helped me slow my mind and do every movement deliberately and with control while still possessing softness. She truly has the best balance of Yin and Yang, and now I will have to make extra trips to New York :)”
