After finishing a four-year teacher course of Hatha yoga I started teaching yoga in 2007. After that I studied Kids’ yoga. My quest to understand more about yoga and alignment brought me to Ashtanga yoga and in 2010 I completed a 300-hour teacher training Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. In finding the true path in yoga and becoming an inspiring teacher I love to be inspired by all my students and other teachers like David Swenson, David Williams and Sarah Powers.

Last year September I moved from the Netherlands to Australia to be with my partner. For nearly 36 years I lived in the Netherlands being a part time yoga teacher with my own studio and working freelance for different publishers as a writer/(chief)editor/. With no regrets and with an open heart I sacrificed everything for the most important force of life: LOVE.

Yoga is a healthy challenge that enriches and explores each individual’s inner strength by training the body, mind and soul. My way of teaching is down-to-earth, open, practical and friendly in approach in which the most important intention is to experience the joy and pleasure of yoga.
?Yoga is like a rough diamond. To recognize its true perfection and imperfection you have to view it from all sides. Hold it against the light to see that every ray of light presents different shapes and angles to the diamond. But without light you see nothing and the diamond is just a hard, cold stone. In yoga I hope to offer every individual diamond its true glow and depth, and the experience of that peaceful feeling of joy, pleasure and life.
