About Me

Teaching is an everlasting passion for me. Even before getting engaged with the other, I've been my own teacher for many years. The whole subject of education, which for me means
transformation, that is to say, using constructive tools in order to overcome limitations and as means of building a more conscious life. The process of education is never finished though. We will always be susceptible to change. So, if we really want to mature and flourish as human beings, we have to shift our focus from the final goal and all the anxiety envolved and remain attentive to the quality of our being, which in scientific terms means the nervous system's response, when we approach any activity.

Classic hatha yoga private lesson (Sivananda style) | for inner peace and physical well-being
I am trained in classical hatha yoga, specifically Sivananda yoga. It is a varied class consisting of breathing exercises (pranayama), active yoga postures (asanas) interspersed with relaxation (savasana). The yoga style was developed by Swami Sivananda. He had a background as a doctor, with this knowledge he has developed a series of exercises that are optimal for your entire health. The asana poses are aimed at promoting the functioning of your organs and the alternation of exertion and relaxation promotes the balance of your autonomic nervous system. By regularly practicing Sivananda yoga you will feel fitter and you will notice that you can find more relaxation in your life. My lesson will look like this: I start the class with some breathing exercises. Then follow the warming up exercises (including the sun salutation) to warm up the body for the asanas. This is followed by a series of asanas interspersed with relaxing poses. This series will be roughly the same for each lesson, with a slight variation in exercises. The more often you do the same exercises, the more you can feel the benefits of the exercise and the deeper you can get into the poses. The exercises also become more meditative the more often you do them and you can find more peace in the postures. The lesson ends with a final relaxation. In my private lesson I have special attention for you and I can adapt my lesson to your needs. If you have injuries or other things that limit you in practicing yoga, I will gladly adapt the exercises to you so that you can get the most out of your private lesson. In my lesson, the emphasis is also on finding peace and acceptance in yourself, so that you can really come to yourself during the lesson. If you have any questions about the class, send me a message!

The father of modern yoga Patanjali mentioned consistency in his biography: Practice should be continuous for a long time with devotion for its firm establishment. You have to practice for a long period of time. Your practice must not be interrupted. You must do it regularly. You must do your practice with love and respect. -Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: 1.14 - Consistency is key to achieving your goals, and cultivating peace within yourself is the first step towards a fulfilling life. Let me guide you on your journey towards inner harmony. -About my class- My yoga class is breath-based hatha yoga. In the class, we use a specific breath technique to heat the body up.

The goal of yoga is to bring harmony between your body, mind and soul. It helps you to maintain your healthy mind and body. The time of yoga and meditation gives you a chance to observe yourself and to get to know yourself deeply. It is not a competition and is a time just for yourself.
