Teaches in the studios
Originally trained by Daphne Koken & Claudia Van der Tier (500hrs YTT), I am dedicated to expanding my expertise through ongoing online and live education, as well as intensive book study. Recently, I have also embarked on the journey of Rolfing Training (fascia manual therapy).
I am a certified Vinyasa Yoga Teacher with over 1,000 hours of experience teaching in studio classes and private sessions.
My personal yoga journey began as a competitive athlete in Lead climbing. Initially, my focus was on physical strength and flexibility. However, yoga opened my eyes to a new understanding of my body and movement. It shifted my approach from performance-driven to one centered around freedom and connection, cultivating a sustainable and mindful practice.
With a thirst for knowledge, I am deeply curious about the underlying principles of yoga. I continually expand my expertise by exploring diverse perspectives and practicing with various teachers. My areas of study include therapeutic yoga, myofascial anatomy, philosophy, and other movement practices.
As a teacher, I have a genuine passion for sharing and explaining yoga. I recognize the profound impact my words can have on students, both physically and emotionally. That's why I am dedicated to delivering detailed and enthusiastic guidance, ensuring that my students fully immerse themselves in the practice and derive maximum benefit. Through intentional creativity in my flows, I aim to empower my students to explore their body's capabilities and embrace the transformative effects of yoga on all levels of their being.
