Are you looking for peace, consciousness, relaxation or ways to feel more light and at ease? Come to one of my yogaclasses or ask for individual guidance!
From early age I have been sensitive for other people’s wellbeing and energy around me.
I have always been interested in social behavior and psychology, which is why I chose a social pedagogical study.
After graduating in 2007 I have been working with drugs addicts, psychiatric patients and homeless people.
From my own needs I felt I needed some guidance in managing lots of different outside influences and impressions and in finding a way to calm the mind. I started practicing yoga in 2008, but only really got to intergrate it in daily life after a friend inspired me to go to India and stay in an ashram.
In January 2013 I completed the Teacher Training Course in the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Neyyar Dam (India). Here I discovered a lot of tools to practice what I was looking for. Since the day I left the ashram, you can find me on the yoga mat every day.
Over the years, I have completed several courses and found my own teaching style. For me, yoga is an inexhaustible source of inspiration, an anchor in difficult times, a way of life.
Why practise yoga?
I know from my own experience how challenging it can be to stay balanced, both in energy and in mental and emotional resilience. I’ve struggled with things like anxiety, hypersensitivity and perfectionism. However, yoga taught me to accept ‘what is’ instead of trying to fix everything. For this I use different tools I found in yoga such as asana practice, breathing exercises, meditation and mantra repetition/chanting.
About the classes
I love to share my experiences. It motivates me to see how people can benefit from that. In my classes I combine a gentle ‘flow’ with more powerful poses, relaxation and reflection. You’re very welcome to follow any of my classes, I will teach in Dutch or English, depending on the students that sign up for the class.
“Health is wealth, peace of mind is happiness, Yoga shows the way.”
