Growing up in many different countries, I’ve always felt somewhat of a nomad, a wanderer, and in a way uncentered. Around 2008, a search for grounding led me to yogic philosophy and the start of a Raja Yoga Teacher Training in 2009. Somehow when studying and practising this wisdom, it felt as though I was getting a glimpse of the deeper essence of life, it all made so much sense. After a year I decided to make my practice a bit more physical and continued with a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. During this training I was introduced to the Ayurvedic Principles, Massage and Prana.
Upon concluding this 3-year training, I moved to Chile and started my teaching practice in Santiago. When I returned to Amsterdam I completed a Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Anat Geiger in 2015. Over the last 2 years, a growing interest and passion for the breath and Prana has led me to become a certified breath coach and I am now in the midst of a Pranayama Teacher Training. I teach Yin, Hatha, Pranayama and Circular Breathing. Inspired by the teachings of Adyashanti and Eckhart Tolle, I focus my classes on breathing in motion, soft qigong movements, pranayama and meditation. And mostly to keep a sense of grounding and humor in the way we approach things that happen both on and off our cushion. I hope to meet you in a class or workshop!
Besides breathbase I've been working in film and documentary production since 2011. If you'd like to have a look at some previous work, check it out via LinkedIn.
