I teach in Voorburg at Pilar Studio and in Delft at Neo Yoga. My classes are usually yin yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga or Chandra Krama (Moon Sequence)…and mostly a combination thereof!

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga:  The sequences I teach are based on the Ashtanga method as taught by Shri K. Patthabi Jois. It is a dynamic vinyasa system that requires a certain level of strength and flexibility, as well as stamina. I like to keep the practice creative and adjust it to all levels of practitioners. My love for this practice is due to its inherent connection to the breath and concentration and I love to share my passion for this practice.

Chandra Krama: The Moon Sequence was developed by Matthew Sweeney from whom I have learned directly and have been authorised to teach this sequence. It is a gentle vinyasa system focused on the soft energy of the moon, a more inward practice and moving towards subtler levels. I personally find this to be the perfect combination with a dynamic Ashtanga practice and the sequence is accessible to everyone and can be individually adapted.

Yin Yoga: This is a gentle style of yoga where positions are held between 3 and 5 minutes. Yin yoga targets the connective tissues and works with the Chinese meridian system. It can be a very intense yoga practice due to the duration of poses but brings about ultimate release and is incredibly healing. I find this the perfect combination with a more dynamic practice.

My practice has been guided by a number of teachers, who I can highly recommend for further and deeper study:
