I got to take their 5 Elements Immersion a few months ago in Thailand and it was phenomenal!! These teachers are incredibly knowledgeable, funny, engaging, open and available to our many questions. It’s a challenging but really powerful area of study. We also got to explore Face Reading, which was really fun and illuminating. I’m so grateful for the experience of studying and learning with them and I really look forward to the next opportunity. So if you are considering doing a training with Tobias, Marcela and Nienke you’re in for a real treat! Enjoy, you’re gonna love it!
August 2016, I had the fortunate experience of going through my 200 hour yoga teacher training with Marcela Mota. I was totally in awe, she’s an extremely inspiring and authentic person. Her passion shows through in her teachings. She gives so much to her student and teaches from the heart. Plus her lovely energy is totally infectious.
Marcela exudes light, happiness and good vibes. She teaches with so much passion and genuine love for yoga, but also teaches with great strength and clarity. She brings laughter and grace to her teaching style and makes learning interesting and fun. It was amazing to learn from her and connect with her on and off the mat. Marcela has something very special and her energy is contagious. The softness in her yin classes allows students to completely let go and open themselves up. She balances yin and yang beautifully!!
From the moment you meet Marcela you’re overcome with a sense of peace, calm and mindfulness that she radiates in everything she does – from drinking a glass of water to guiding you through a challenging asana sequence. She makes you feel as though in that moment you are sharing with her that you are only thing that matters to her. Marcela fosters confidence and knowledge in her students allowing them to glimpse their full potential, encouraging them to exist in the moment and embrace their uniqueness and style. She is a beautiful gift to the world of yoga.
Marcela is one of the warmest yoga teacher I’ve ever had. She is so welcoming for who you are, wherever you come from. Femininity, sensuality, as well as simplicity and generosity define her well to me. She is a soft and beautiful woman. She looks sincere and natural in the way she is and in the way she teaches. She IS, as we say when we say BE YOU, Be Yourself!
Pursue the things you love doing, then do them so well that others can’t take their eyes off you.” As soon as I read this quote it brought Marcela to mind. Yoga is her life, her love, her passion, and her truth. She teaches from the heart. I felt safe and confident in her capable hands. She is a true inspiration with her knowledge of Yoga, her intuition and kindness with the human heart. She radiates beauty from outside and within and you can feel this just by being in her presence.
I took a 1 week Chinese Medicine & Face Reading & Yin Yoga Immersion with Marcela, Tobias and Nienke in Thailand and it was a very deep journey for me. Personally, I was able not only to understand my emotions better, but also learned how to work with them in a healing way. I learned so much about the 5 Elements of Nature, how to identify imbalances and how to bring them back to a balanced state of being. On a professional level, it gave me a greater understanding of the human body and how yoga poses can affect the emotional and mental states of my students, increasing my awareness as a teacher. It was an incredible training and I loved every second of it.
The 5 Elements & Yin Yoga Teacher Training offered me something fresh and exciting not just as a yoga teacher, but also as an individual. I was inspired by the depth of the teachings of both Marcela and Tobias and the palpable passion for what they do. I loved the reflective aspect of yin coupled with the connection to the elements which is something quite unique. It is also a highly creative practice with the combination of poses, music and wisdom teachings. It has heightened my connection to yoga, nature and ultimately to my sense of self. Thank you guys. Quite extraordinary! More please!
I enjoyed the training very much and genuinely believe this is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. My initial intention was to deepen my practice and allow myself some quiet time to reflect and recharge after a hectic lifestyle past couple of years. But the course has transformed me beyond my imagination. First, I love the people; the teachers and classmates. Marcela is so experienced, knowledgeable, yet so real and down to earth. She brought this incredible energy to the room and created such a special place for us to grow.
Marcela is simply the best!!! She has something that you can’t teach. A rare beauty that puts sunshine on anything she touches. I would say she has had an infinite positive impact on my life!!
Do you have a venue and would you like to host me for a Teacher Training or a Workshop ?
