Who am I? What is my purpose in life?
Questions that came up in me from an early age. I had the feeling that the universe had something else in mind for me. It still took me many years to finally admit to myself that I couldn't live the life I was living. Until I reached the point that my fire slowly burned out, and I fell very deep. I see now that I needed to fall so far in order to wake up, to see the light. I started traveling and discovered other ways of living that sparked my heart.
Yoga came on my path and changed my life. When I was on my mat, I finally allowed myself to be myself, to accept my body, to fully feel my emotions, to be in my heart and just be. And from that moment on I knew I couldn't go back to my life in the Netherlands.
I needed to follow the spark that I felt in my heart, the feeling of finally being alive. I travelled more and lived in a beautiful spiritual community in Sweden, a place that for the first time felt like home.
Yoga became my daily practice, my way of living. I fell in love with Traditional Hatha Yoga, a practice rooted in the heart, so much more than a physical practice. And I felt that I wanted to share this with the world because it brought me back to life, and back home into my heart.
I completed two Hatha Yoga teacher trainings and started teaching in my community in Sweden. I now live in Australia beside the Sea and Sacred Mother Mountain, Gulaga, blessed with an amazing community.
When life is flowing and I follow my heart, I know I am doing the right thing. And at this point in my life, this is exactly where I need to be. I am looking forward to meeting you on the mat and sharing my practice from my heart with you. Know that you are welcome as you are, you are perfect.
