My grandmother was an Amsterdam based yoga teacher, as a child I thought it was very funny her doing all these pretzel-like poses. Little did I know that in 2002 I would find my own way to yoga.

In 2016 I felt it was time to do my Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in India. Some call Jivamukti Yoga the punk rock of yoga. And I agree. At its core there’s pure spiritual activism, integrated into strong, creative āsana classes, with a focus on the ancient yoga teachings/philosophy.

I am a 300 Hour Jivamukti® Yoga Certified teacher and 50 Hour Restorative Yoga teacher (Teacher training with Judith Hanson Lasater and Lizzie Lasater). I also attended Mimi Kuo Deemer’s 20 Hour Qigong Immersion for Yoga Teachers.

I bow down to my dear teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Judith Hanson LasaterMimi Kuo Deemer and my amazing mentor Emma Henry.
