Meet Annie & Sara

Annemiek Dunhof

EFL Teacher | Author & Translator | Yoga Instructor

... a determined and fanatic language student, and yoga practitioner with a lot of experience in the field of learning and education. I have a deep passion for personal development and am always looking for new experiences and adventures with which I can help others expand their horizons. In 2016, I completed the CELTA course at CES (Centre for English Studies) in Edinburgh, which prepared me to enter the field of EFL teaching. During my travels through Central America in 2018, I trained with Selena Garefino Yoga and obtained my certificate in teaching Hatha and Vinyasa yoga sequences. Nowadays, I try to combine my experiences in a joint package; themed classes of English and yoga with a focus on the language we use in our yoga practise. According to my CELTA certificate and the Yoga Alliance recognition, I hope to be of help to anyone interested in learning English as their second language, while obtaining mental and physical stability. On top of that, I teach private classes and do a lot of work related to translation. I periodically keep busy translating general, commercial and website content. Open-minded, hardworking and always with a smile on my face, I look forward to any challenge you can throw my way.

Sara Cecilia Zúñiga

Yoga Instructor | Reiki & Thai Massage Practitioner

… a bilingual yogini. I draw inspiration from various healing modalities and traditions to create a wellness experience that is in accordance with the energetics for a given time and season. A typical class might integrate alignment-based seasonal Yoga inspired by the moon phases for example. I am also passionate about connecting with others through sacred practices, rituals, and ceremonies.  Although I like a good energetic sequence, I also enjoy the art of mindful rest through restorative and yin practices. I love finding balance through the challenge of fire and the graceful fluidity of water.  I am certified as 200HR E-RYT/500HR RYT. My introduction to Yoga was through the Greenhouse Holistic community in Brooklyn, NY and includes a range of diverse Yoga lineages (Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa). I continue on my yogic path as a student of these lineages and others, such as the Katonah method and Thai Massage.

student testimonials

“Me encanta Annie! Hace que las clases sean divertidas y a la vez aprendas mucho. Me ayudó a conseguir mi objetivo y mejorar mi inglés. Es una chica muy simpática. Las clases pasan volando! Aconsejable 100%”

Sagri - Rota, Spain

“Her approach is holistically about ensuring that everyone leaves the room with a pleasant experience and feels great before they dive back into their day. She also strives to ensure that folks focus on their own practice by getting physically close to students and whispering to them instructions on how they can do better. This helps keep other students breathing and focusing on their own practice. Her tenure at Swan’s Nest was a great one and I look forward to the day she returns.”

Chris G. - New York City, USA

“Annie es una de los pocas personas que conozco que veas que siente una gran dedicación y sobre todo compromiso el cual pone a cada una de sus clases. Annie es una profesora espectacular, se esfuerza al máximo para que consigas excelentes resultados. Con ella las clases pasan volando. Clases dinámicas, interactivas y lúdicas. En pocas semanas notarás una gran mejora en tu nivel de inglés. Si buscas profe de inglés, Annie es la mejor.”

Maria - Madrid , Spain

“Recomiendo 100% a Annie! Una profesora muy profesional, se prepara bien las clases y te lo explica todo fenomenal, además es majisima! Principalmente hice con ella clases de speaking y me han servido mucho, seguro que repito con ella en cuanto pueda! Annie makes English a piece of cake for anyone kisses!!”

Patricia - Madrid, Spain

“Sara Cecilia really showed me that I enjoy and need yoga in my life.”

Kim P. - New York City, USA

“Annie ha sido mi profesora de Inglés conversacional vía Skype por ya casi un año, al principio estaba yo algo escéptico sobre tener clases a través de una videollamada, pensé que sería algo aburrido estar frente a la computadora, pero Annie hace que cada minuto sea realmente increíble. Después de este tiempo he conseguido confianza al hablar y ahora puedo comunicarme bastante bien. Ella además de inglés, también habla español (y algunos otros idiomas más), por lo que conoce las posibles complicaciones que un hispanohablante puede encontrar al querer aprender inglés. No dudes en intentarlo, te llevarás una muy linda sorpresa.”

Alfredo - Mexico City, Mexico
