When I started with yoga, I fell in love. For me yoga is all about connecting body, mind, soul and spirit. It’s a beautiful journey within. A journey to discover who you really are and why you are here. To listen, to feel, to connect. It’s an experience. I am here to guide you and help you find the beauty within yourself, so you can shine your light and spread your love. Let’s go on a journey together.
Yoga became a very important part in my hectic life, back then working in the corporate world. As it was a physical and mental practice for me. Since 2014 my life has turned upside down, I learned and noticed how important it is to take good care of my body in daily life. Yoga is enormously supportive in this and now it has become much more of a lifestyle than just the physical postures in a yoga class. I like to combine and make intuitive use of these styles depending on the group, setting and time. In my yoga classes I like to take you on a journey in your body, with attention – to (re) connect and listen what your body has to tell you. To take better care of yourself.
Becoming aware of the body, breath and thoughts. Observing, and accepting what is. To discover how there’s always movement. Even if you sit very still, you still feel your chest moving up and down. Our body as the pathway to the present moment. That’s what yoga is teaching me. In my yoga classes I focus on relaxation in the poses, natural breathing and embodiment. My yoga journey began in 2009 when I lived in India for an internship. Before I joined my first yoga class, I learned about yoga philosophy just by talking to my Indian friends. Over the years I followed multiple yoga trainings to gain more knowledge about yoga asanas, breathing techniques and yoga philosophy.
I found my passion to teach when I started teaching classical ballet at the age of 17, after studying at the Royal Conservatorium for 5 years. Later I also became interested in yoga and started teaching Core flow, which is a vinyasa based practice.
I studied Mensendieck therapy to help people with their posture and correct movement patterns. I am very interested in the body and how people move. I combine all my knowledge and experience, in my classes, creating a flow that allows people to feel elegant and strong while working on posture and alignment.
A happy life for me means first of all balance. Balance between body and mind. Yoga is the way to support this. Just like eating healthy and being in nature. This is important to me and I like to pass it on to my students. As a yoga teacher, passionate traveler and globetrotter, I like to share my knowledge and experiences with you.

Yoga teaches me to embrace all the experiences in life just as they are. As one of my teachers mentioned: the wealth in life lies in how you have allowed its experiences to enrich you. Yoga brings me back to being and it keeps me centered. It’s a way of life, to live life with an open kind heart. My intention is to share experiences in yoga that have touched my heart. To connect with all other beautiful souls out there who want to experience life to the fullest, walk together in an amazing journey to be more present, loving, kind and share their light with the world
The last years I travelled around the globe and created opportunities to teach yoga at the most beautiful places on Earth. The practice of yoga and meditation is a very important part of my life. I love to start my day with yoga. Each practice gives me joy and makes me feel powerful from within. The practice to be more connected to myself, silences the mind and it makes me feel energised and relaxed at the same time. Yoga became even more important when I found myself in an imbalanced work-life situation. My style of teaching feels like a journey of the self through the self to the self. I invite you to turn your focus inwards, to become more aware of your breath and the sensations in your own body and I keep on guiding you through the whole practice so you become the explorer. My main focus will always be love and compassion for yourself..
Yoga taught me to get out of my head and back into my body. To connect with whatever there is in that moment. In my classes, hatha and restorative / yin, I find it important to challenge yourself in the moment and don’t take it (or yourself) too seriously. My classes are suitable for all-levels of yoga. I incorporate the yoga philosophy in an accessible way and invite you to take the yoga off the mat into your life.
For me yoga is a philosophy of life. I can’t imagine life without yoga. It makes me happy to see what yoga can do for people.
Personally, I can’t imagine a life without yoga. It makes me happy to see what yoga can mean for people: you often see a big difference between entering and leaving the classes.
I think it is important that people are kind, both to themselves and to others. This should also become apparent during the lessons. By participating with attention and mildness, one learns to be more tolerant: towards oneself as well as towards the environment.
That makes life and the world a bit more beautiful.”
