After having finished Law School, I worked in Brussels and Amsterdam as a company lawyer and recruiter for many years.
Although yoga came across my path at a very young age, I truly became inspired by yoga in the year 2000. From then onwards, I could be found on my yoga mat in Los Angeles and later Singapore, where my family and I lived for many years.
After some years, I began looking for more depth in yoga. I was curious about how yoga was founded, why you feel so different after a yoga class (more in balance, ‘lighter’, more connected to everything and to each person around you), compared to a rowing match, a field hockey training or a run through the forest.
I also wanted to learn more about the philosophy, books of famous Yoga Masters from thousands of years which describe how bandhas, mudras, vaju’s and your energetic body work, amongst others.
For that reason, I started to follow more and more yoga workshops and practice more yoga classes in the Netherlands and abroad from well known yogi’s as David Swenson, Govinda Kai and Michael Gannon. I also went more in depth in the importance of healthy food for your general well-being.
Fruits of Yoga
The Intense Yoga Teacher Training of Katiza Satya naturally came across my path. After having finished this beautiful and instructive teacher training in Bali, Indonesia, I began offering yoga classes in Naarden and then my own yoga business, 'Fruits of Yoga', was born. 'Fruits of Yoga' for me, is an appropriate description of what yoga does for you and how you feel after a yoga class: you often feel the benefits of a yoga class days after the class.
