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 me, 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 my heart and the spark that I felt in my heart, the feeling of finally being alive. I traveled 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 yoga brought me back to life, and back home into my heart.
I did two Hatha Yoga teacher trainings and started teaching in my community. During that time I met my husband and the moment he asked me to join him to Australia I felt a full yes in my whole body. And here I am, living in a beautiful place, blessed with an amazing community. Teaching regularly at the Good Vibes Studio in Bermagui. 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 look 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.
