HI! My name is Mareille, welcome, I’m happy you’re here. I’m an Amsterdam based yoga-instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2004 as a way to become more flexible in my body. I practiced a lot of sports and I studied Sports and Movements, in that time my muscles always felt stiff. Later on I found out that yoga was also the key to find inner peace in my restless mind. Practicing yoga is so much more than body’s flexibility. I found out that the relationship between physical and emotional health is very close. Therefore my teachings are always on a physical and emotional level.
Before I started practicing yoga I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and I always seemed to have aches and pains in my lower back. Once I started to practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger and calmer. Yoga is now integrated in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me with everything. It teaches me to stay focused and to be receptive.
I believe that integrating just a little bit of yoga into your life can help you to make some shifts. Whether that’s going to class once or twice a week, doing a few poses at home or taking a daily 15 minutes to meditate.
After graduating my Bachelor in Sports. I started as a Physical Education Teacher at a primary school in Amsterdam East, and after some years of teaching children sports, I decided to follow my heart and started my own yoga and massage business. I always kept my love for people, teaching and movements.
