Within yoga, my focus is particularly on yin yoga and the quiet yoga forms. For me, yin yoga is about connection with yourself and awareness. It helps me better connect with my body and my heart. Through yin yoga I have learned to better see and feel what is really there. In my busy everyday life, yin yoga helps me find peace and to 'be' instead of 'do'. For me, yoga philosophy is an important part of yoga. It inspires me and motivates me to keep growing as a human being.
I took my first yin yoga teacher training at Thrive Yoga (100 hours) and then delved further into yin yoga during a second yin yoga teacher training with Anat Geiger and Marcel van de Vis Heil, who themselves were trained by and work with Paul Grilley, the founder of yin yoga.
In my classes the emphasis lies on connecting with your body and becoming aware of it. I like to work with themes from the yoga philosophy and have a preference for subjects that touch on authenticity, connection and meaning.
