Samarasa, literally “same essence”, refers to the essential unity of all existence,
the supreme bliss of harmony
As an international Yoga Therapy and Healing school to us 'samarasa' means a body and a being which is completely open and in full health allowing the pure essence to radiate through in its entirety; bringing a body full of light. Then ultimately when we go deeper it is a state of complete freedom, of peace and attainment in the realization of the Absolute Truth.
Samarasa Healing offers specialized trainings in the field of Yoga Therapy as well as a place for integrative healing by doctors and certified Yoga Therapists.
We believe that any genuine and long-lasting healing can only take place if the chosen therapy activates the self-healing mechanisms of the body. Yoga Therapy provides precisely that. It is a non-invasive, self-empowering, integrative form of healing which looks at each person individually. In order to assess each client and condition accurately thorough training and experience is required.
It is our hope that by passionately and competently offering continued education programs to Yoga teachers and health care professionals, a deeply integrative approach to health and healing is propagated. An approach which uses scientific data, includes teachings from western medicine as well as the profound experience and knowledge of the yogic system.
Our team at Samarasa is deeply grateful for being able to offer such inspiring, meaningful and progressive teachings. We warmly invite anyone who is enthusiastic or curious about the intersection between modern medicine and ancient yoga and its harmonious implementation into today’s healing professions, to join our trainings.
Looking forward to welcoming you soon!
Anneke & Ann-Sophie and the Samarasa team
Meet the Founders
It has always been Ann-Sophie´s enthusiasm to bridge modern, scientific knowledge of the West with ancient, experiential wisdom of the East.
Being a medical doctor herself as well as a yoga therapist (C-IAYT), a yoga teacher (RYS-500) and yoga practitioner (ten years’ experience) her expertise lies in the field of therapy.
She understands that health refers to all levels of our being - as such her teachings and treatments reflect a purely integrative approach.
On a personal level her own sense of being “healthy and alive” is enhanced by being in the company of loving friends and family, spending time in nature as well as regular meditation practices.
Anneke is an enthusiast of life, connectivity and that what drives humans to evolve and aspire.
This motivated her to pursue an international career in sustainable business and talent development, and this also fueled her passion for yoga.
First as a fervent practitioner and student, and later also as a teacher she experienced the deep healing power of yoga on many occasions. Until finally her passion got the better of her and from this ‘Samarasa Healing’ was born.
As a Yoga & Meditation practitioner and Teacher, and a certified Yoga Therapist, Anneke now offers workshops and teacher trainings internationally
