Marja Bazuin

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.


Riki Smits

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.


Lisa Koster

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.


Marianne Willemsen

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.


Yamuna Devi

Yoga is a beautiful gift to the world. I feel very blessed to have been born into a Yogi family with an Indian father and an English mother, My mother is a yoga teacher and I discovered yoga through her at a very young age. In my sessions, i draw upon all my experiences of healing arts & yoga. I am deeply passionate about being a part of the healing journey of my students. I always listen to the energy and needs of the students and adapt each class to everyones needs offering modifications, keeping the practice playful & fun too. My soft and gentle approach will guide you through your yoga practice so you can flow with love, devotion and surrender.


Gera Fokkens

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. To me it is important that people are friendly, both to themselves and to others. This is also reflected during the sessions. By participating with attention and gentleness, one learns to be more tolerant: towards oneself as well as towards the people around. This makes life and the world a more beautiful place.


Tamara van Well

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


Angelika Karrer

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.


Rosan Oosterom

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..


Eleni Stavrianou

To some, yoga is the practice of asanas, to improve body flexibility and strengthen their muscles. For some others, it is a way of relieving mental stress through the performance of body postures. But yoga is all this and much more.
Yoga is an approach to life that values appropriate effort, based on balance and harmony, within each person and with each other. It is a time to be still, slow down the constant chatter of the mind and tune in to your body’s sensations. My yoga classes include postures, breathing exercises, relaxation, and meditation. Through a range of many different techniques I like my yoga practice to boost physical and mental well-being, be focused on finding the correct alignment in each pose, promote strength, calmness, concentration, self- inquiry, breath awareness, hopefully, leaving you to return to your day feeling more balanced in your mind, body and spirit and reaping the benefits of a yoga practice.


Mila

My name is Mila and I live on Kos since several years. One of my biggest hobbies is going on a discovery tour through nature on our island.
You can’t make me happier (or it has to be with a nice treat) than when I can go join you on our beautiful hikes.


Mariëlla Sprado

After a holiday in 2012 I fell in love with the beauty of the island and started a living here on Kos. I began with ‘Yoga on Kos’ in 2016 because I myself had the experience of how nice it is to be able to practice yoga in a beautiful inspiring place and I wanted to share that and the love I feel for the island of Kos with other people. During your stay I will tell you about Kos and what are the nice places to see and visit for the best holiday feeling.

In the Yoga & Hiking weeks I guide you on the walks we will make together to enjoy the beauty of our nature and the views along the way.
It makes me happy every time.
It’s great to see that our guests getting more relaxed every day and enjoy their stay with us, that’s what we do it for.
