Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Toegankelijke Yoga and Yoga Nidra at Yoga Minds Amstelveen. Lead Teacher at the YMA.
Before I started the practice of yoga, I have been practicing classical and modern dance. From my youth onwards, I could always very clearly feel the effect of physical movement on my whole being. In my early twenties I discovered yoga and at first it reminded me of dancing. But as in dance, the focus is more external, in Yoga it’s all about what’s inside.
