I joined my first yoga-class in 2002. It was not really love at first sight. But I started my yoga journey some bit seriously, with critical Alignment yoga in 2004. A very interesting hatha-yoga style which gave me a strong foundation about the possibilities of the spine. After years of practicing with Paul Braaksma, I also got interested in the more dynamic styles of yoga, like Ashtanga Vinyasa and Jivamukti. Especially the chanting and the beautiful story’s around the Yoga Philosophy I loved. I start following classes at Svaha and Delight around 2010. There I also got interested in Jnana, Bhakti yoga and YinYoga. I then followed a 50- hour Pre Teacher Training at Delight Yoga Studio in 2012. Where we studied the Astangha poses, breath and also some insight in Vini Yoga. After that I studied a 200 – hour TT with David Lurey & Mirjam Wagner, which was such a life transformation time for me. I started to practice yoga on and off the mat. In 2016 I have deepened my practice with an advanced 300- hour TT Hatha/Ashtanga Vinyasa Ayurveda in South India, Kerela.
I also learned the magic practice of Yin yoga (Jose de Groot, Mirjam Wagner) and Thai yoga massage, as perfect companions to my yoga practice and to master the skills to soften the body and slow down the mind.
Inspired by critical alignment approach, as well as experiential anatomy, and Vipassana Meditation, my teaching style focuses on subtle awareness, attention to physical and pranic alignment, stability, fine-tuned organization, and finding full access to our key source of vital energy, the breath. My skill is to make every single pose accessible for anyone. Either by adjusting or by modification.
I have been exploring different aspects of spirituality in my own spiritual search. I find my inspiration in The yoga sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Vipassana meditation, non -duality, mindfulness, energy- work. As well through potential leadership Path of Love, female work and sharing groups.
Great Inspirational spiritual teachers for me are Mooji, Abraham Hicks, Jan Geurtz, Eckhart Tolle, Jeff Foster, Katie Byron, Ram Dass, Thich Nhat Hanh and many more
I hope I can inspire you as well!
