Annett Mottlau (Danish) is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher from the BKS Iyengar Yoga Institute in Amsterdam with a Junior Intermediate Level I certification. She is a second-
generation certified Iyengar teacher. Her mother was an active teacher for more than 30 years in Denmark, and studied with BKS Iyengar in Pune, India.
Annett was her student for several years before she became a teacher herself, benefiting from her great knowledge.
Her admiration for the Iyengar yoga technique and for the philosophy behind it is the inspiration for her own practice and teaching. She had back injuries in the past, and the knowledge gained through dealing with these issues also informs her teaching. She help students to restore balance in the body, in the mind and, ultimately, in life.
Her teaching is clear, dynamic with strict attention to details and alignment. She combines a well-structured class with her warm teaching style.
In 1995 Annett relocated from Copenhagen to Cascais, Portugal to continue her training and teaching there and Lisbon. Annett graduated from the teacher-training programmes at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Amsterdam with Clé Sourne, Charles Hond and Annemieke Van Kootne and as teacher she studied with Geeta S. Iyengar and Prashant S. Iyengar at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India. In October 2015 she completed a 3-year studie of Therapeutic Iyengar yoga with Stephanie Quirk in Copenhagen.
In 2016 she moved to the Algarve, and in 2018 she opened her own Iyengar studio in Tavira town.
