Yoga was introduced to me at a very young age when a friend of my parents started to teach children’s yoga. But it was in my mid twenties that I (re)discovered yoga when I was looking for a way to exercise in my neighborhood in The Hague. I started to follow classes at Balanzs and found out that yoga gave me so much more than just a nice workout! I was finally able to find a moment of relaxation and joy in my busy working life as marketeer.

Many years later I decided to escape the busy work life and went to Sampoorna Yoga in India, where I graduated from the 200hr Ashtanga & Vinyasa teacher training. Followed by a Yoga Nidra teacher course back in the Netherlands at Mangalam, Amsterdam.

About a year later, everything in my life changed within a few months. I moved back from Amsterdam to The Hague, lost my marketing job and became a mother of a beautiful boy. And I returned back to Balanzs, not only as a student this time. I found my dream job, combining the best of both worlds: marketing manager ánd yoga teacher.

“If not now, then when? If not you, then who?”
Adapting to change, grabbing you chances and enjoying the present moment are subjects that I would like to incorporate in my classes since it brought me where I am today.
