I am writing this as a personal reference for Ananda Trettin. Ananda has been my yoga teacher for over 5 years, during which time she has guided me through a truly unique physical and spiritual yoga journey.
I had been practicing for many years, various styles of yoga, before joining Ananda’s classes, and was drawn to the sense of community she had nurtured amongst her students. She is welcoming and takes a genuine interest in each students’ journey. So much so, that her classes are an education as much as they are a practice, and she takes an interest in helping her students experience shifts in their practice. Her incredible knowledge of anatomy and her articulation of cues, ensure her students practice from a place of understanding and consciousness of their bodies.
My knowledge and awareness of physicality would not be what it is today without the things I have learnt from Ananda. Her practice itself is inspiring and she has been a mentor for me in my own practice.
She is extremely well respected in the broader yoga community. I have been fortunate, through opportunities Ananda has created, to practice under her own well respected teachers from all parts of the world. All of which, have a demonstrated a genuine respect for Ananda and the spaces she has created for her students.
I have no hesitation in recommending Ananda as an exceptional teacher, and along with many others will look to practice under her guidance as my yoga journey continues.
