TEACHING FACULTY

This Teacher Training is designed and led by experienced yoga teacher Marlene Henny, vinyasa and core flow expert, and Fleur van Zonneveld, dance and yoga expert. Two teachers known for their skills of teaching vinyasa flow yoga.

Marlene Henny
I am a passionate, certified, experienced senior Vinyasa Yoga Teacher who loves to share the beauty of yoga and to create a platform to help people truly experience their BEST LIFE! Coming from a bohemian up bringing, I found myself after a more wild lifestyle falling in love with dance but after a while as the dance world melted into the background into yoga. Yoga has taught me to accept myself with all my flaws. Yoga has taught me to be strong and gentle and that it is ok to sometimes mess up and how to be beautiful human and nicely flavored but most of all to be an authentic person with lots of love and sharing the gifts.

Marlene has become a renowned name in the Yoga world in the Netherlands and is a senior and experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT500) who teaches classes, workshops, training modules for teacher trainings,”The Art of Sequencing Module” and “The Core Flow Module” and is a leading teacher in several level and level 2 teacher trainings in the Netherlands.


Fleur van Zonneveld
Being a dancer, the body always has been fascinating to me. And the more yoga I experienced the more I discovered that behind that body, there is much more to be found. Yoga is a way to go on an adventure within yourself! What made me want to be a dancer was to get people out of their daily lives and bring them to a place where dreams still exist and limitation’s don’t. My goal in teaching yoga lies not so far from that. For me to yoga is a way to investigate, to bring you back towards your true self, to experience life in a more conscious way. My classes move and flow, just as the breath does, just as life does!

PERSONAL REVIEWS | STUDENTS OF CLASS 2016

‘It has been a great experience taking part in the Summer Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training. The great thing about the intensive is that you get to fully immerse yourself with yoga during two weeks of training. It will give you the basic tools to start your journey in learning more about yourself and yoga.’
– Sabrina

‘The TT was an amazing journey for me. I have learnt a lot, not only about the art of teaching yoga, but also to enjoy my yoga practice much more than ever. The group was just perfect, we were so different from each other, each of us with different motivations and intentions, and this created a synergy that makes me smile just thinking about it. Thanks to Narges and the Yagoy crew for hosting such a wonderful experience and a big THANK and a even bigger hug to our unforgettable teachers, Marlene and Fleur, who made the magic possible.’
– Linda

‘Before I started the Vinyasa Flow Summer Intensive Teacher Training I already joined classes by Marlene and Fleur as much as I could. Their creative way of moving from pose to pose really attract me from the first moment. These two very experienced and well skilled yoga teachers made me more and more enthusiastic about yoga! After practicing for a while I decided to join a training by my two favorite teachers, so I would be able to share a way of mindfully moving the body. Both Marlene and Fleur are wonderful teachers and very inspiring personalities to learn from. This 200hr Yoga Teacher Training training is very good to increase your own yoga practice and to become more knowledgeable about how to create a flowing, inspiring and save yoga class. It’s wonderful that Marlene and Fleur teamed up with Yagoy, a beautiful and cosy studio where I really felt at home during the training. Yagoy is putting a lot of effort in creating a friendly yoga atmosphere and I really appreciate that. This studio is offering high quality yoga classes and studio owner Narges is very open to help starting yoga teachers to grow! ‘
– Nienke

‘This teacher training brought me in contact with my true self. Sometimes that was a bit confronting but under the sweet and clear quidance of Fleur and Marlene it felt really safe. This training also really inspired me. Both Fleur and Marlene are such creative teachers. The philosphy classes by Fleur were one of my favorite moments! I Will always hold a special place in my heart for those two.’
– Tjalline

‘De vinyasa yoga teacher training die ik gevolgd heb bij Marlene en Fleur, heb ik ervaren als een life changing experience die ik NOOIT had willen missen! Marlene en Fleur zijn twee warme, prachtige, wijze en inspirerende yogi’s die te alle tijden voor je klaar staan en je op zo’n liefdevolle wijze empoweren om de yoga docent te worden die je kan zijn. Alle vragen die ik ooit had over een asana, anetomie en de filosofie aangaade yoga, zijn beantwoord. Ik heb zo ontzettend veel geleerd over yoga…én niet te vergeten over mijzelf. Ik kan dan ook niets anders dan deze teacher training zeer aanbevelen. Wil je een ervaring om nooit te vergeten? Groeien en bloeien tot de max? Ik zou zeggen: stort je erin én zoals Marlene en Fleur altijd zeiden: ‘Trust the process’. ‘
– Eva

The Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training at Yagoy was great. I live in Italy and so the TT was a real journey for me, an incredible experience. I’ve really grown during the training, I’ve learned how to face my insicurity and become more confident, I’ve worked a lot on my own practice and I’ve really enjoyed the energy of a lovely group of yogis. Marlene and Fleur are amazing, so different from each other and because of that so perfectly balanced together. I am so grateful for that experience. Now I’m back to Italy and I’ve started to teach my own classes!
