Urban yogini, nature lover, teacher trainer, lover of life, the moon, chocolate & Jay
Born and raised in a little village in the beautiful south of the Netherlands, I moved to Amsterdam in 2000. Although I had been practicing yoga for a while, this is where my practice got serious. As a busy marketeer and world traveller, I came back to my mat every day to find peace of mind and to give space for my energy to move freely. Living an urban life as a full time yogini is energizing and exciting, yet can be challenging at times. Yoga is a wonderful way to find balance.
Prana Vinyasa Teacher (500+ hrs)
I am a certified Prana Vinyasa teacher. I have been training with my root teacher Shiva Rea for over 500 hours and I am still going back to study with and assist Shiva several times a year. Studying Prana Vinyasa Yoga has had a major impact on my self practice and on the way I teach vinyasa yoga.
You can find me for weekly classes in:
Haarlem: Tuesdays 18.45 - 20.15 Strong Flow and 20.15 - 21.30 Relax Flow @Glow Yoga Studio
Amsterdam: Thursdays 19.45 - 21.15 Strong Flow and Sunday 16.00 - 17.15 Gentle Vinyasa @De Nieuwe Yogaschool
Nature has always been an important part of my life. Growing up in the country side, taking care of dogs and horses, I grew a deep love and respect for nature. The elements in nature and the cycles of the sun and the moon are my main source of inspiration for regular classes and retreats. As a passionate traveller, I love to spend time around mountains, rivers and forests to recharge and find inspiration.
I am sharing the teachings of vinyasa yoga in a down to earth and fun way in my 200hrs foundation training. This program I am offering together with a team of experts in Glow Yoga Studio, Haarlem. My 300 hrs program invites students to dive deeper and embody, live and breathe the vinyasa of life. Have a look at the events page to see where and when I am offering my TT modules.
Since November 2017 I am a proud ambassador for Lululemon, a high quality Canadian yoga and sports wear brand. On a regular basis, Lululemon Amsterdam is organizing free events for you to join and enjoy. Because it is healthy and fun to sweat, meditate and practice yoga together! Feel free to have a look in their lovely showroom on Prinsenstraat. For Lululemon events in Amsterdam, check out their Facebook page or have a look at my event calendar.
