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 30 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.
From September 2019 to February 2021 I was teaching at United.Yoga studio, the space Anna Dukhanina and I founded at Hoogte Kadijk 51 in Amsterdam. Unfortunately the studio closed its doors permanently due to the corona crisis.
But you can join me at new vibrating places, check my schedule and come practice at the beautiful Oosterkerk and outside at a beautiful spot in the Eastern Docklands. We stay united in movement, mind and heart!
Are you interested in coming along on a retreat? Keep an eye on my schedule:
The Space In Between – Yoga WKND retreat in Domburg, Zeeland, 3-5 December 2021.
During the Dutch Presidency of the European Council Yogabrigade and Thrive Yoga facilitated Jivamukti Open air yoga classes on the Kop van Java for Meet The Locals. In Spring and Summer we popped up in the Flevoparkbad and on Java eiland. And we teach special classes: in the Oosterkerk and the Zuiveringshal, Westergasfabriek, QRU and Pampus Eiland, all in Amsterdam.
(Paolo Giordano – How contagion works, 2020)
“This epidemic encourages us to think of ourselves as belonging to a collective. It pushes us to behave in a way that is unthinkable under normal circumstances. To recognize that we are inextricably connected to other people. To consider their existence and well being in our individual choices. In the contagion we rediscover ourselves as part of a single organism. In the contagion we become again a community.”
We are born to look and listen to the world.
I bow to my teachers:
Emma Henry (Yoga Flow)
Doug Witthaker (Krama Yoga Sydney)
Moritz Ulrich (Peace Yoga Berlin)
Gösta van Dam (Svaha Yoga)
Alexandra Waters (Anahata Vinyasa Yoga)
