Jason has been on the yoga path for two decades now. His interest started with meditation when he was a teenager which led him to his own self created yoga practice at home. Not happy with what he found in books he decided to go to India and study at the source. There the real inward journey began. Knowing that not everyone is on a spiritual path, but everyone can benefit from yoga, he decided to create a space where yoga is made accessible for everyone. No dogma, just yoga. We are all free to find what we need from yoga whether its relief from stress or pain or just a way to ease your mind. Jason also offers Personal Life Coaching. If you want to go further, all you need to do is ask. Otherwise, just enjoy the mat. More about Jason >>
Suzanna started teaching yoga in 2009 in combination with sailing workshops in Greece, but her practice started a longtime before that. She started practicing yoga 20 years ago at the Iyengar Institute in Amsterdam and later she shifted her focus more towards deep therapeutic stretching. She is a Yin, Mindfulness and Hatha teacher. With these combinations her focus is on deep stretching combined with breathing to unblock physical imbalances. She enjoys giving lots of individual attention and corrections when needed. For her, Yoga is to be connected with your inner self, others and nature, to be open minded and not trapped in daily habits.
Erika is a certified yoga, pilates and mindfulness teacher. She has been passionate about mind-body awareness practices ever since her first pilates class as a young teen. The combination of yoga, pilates and meditation has been healing and transformative physically, mentally, and emotionally for her. Inspired to share these benefits with others, she spent half a year in India and Southeast Asia to study and train in yoga and meditation and completed her comprehensive Pilates teacher training in California. “In my teaching, I aim to create a space where students can experience mindful movement and intentional stillness while cultivating awareness, strength, balance, curiosity, and appreciation. I hope students will leave class smiling, energized, and inspired by a deep connection to the body and soul.”
For Merdan, yoga is like a best friend, always there by his side, helping him to stay centered and healthy, giving him support, strength and the knowledge that all is already there. That he is enough. As a former biologist and current choreographer and masseur, in yoga it all comes together for him: working with the body and learning through direct experience about oneself. He feels inspired to share his passion for yoga with you on your journey towards well-being. With a focus on breath and alignment, you can expect a blend of dynamic postures with a more intense flow and steady postures, taking time to sink in. The whole practice becomes a meditation in movement, ending in the final relaxation posture, where you can let go completely.
Sabrina started her yoga journey when she moved to Amsterdam in 2011. Initially, yoga was only a physical workout, however, soon she started to realize that it gave her so much more than that: a quiet mind and more contentment in her life. She soon fell in love with Ashtanga and went on to complete a Vinyasa teacher training. Being so happy to share this beautiful practice with others, makes every class she teaches a gift to herself. During her classes she aims to pass on to her students what she receives from her personal yoga practice: a quiet and peaceful state of mind. She aims to create a warm atmosphere during her class, supported by relaxing music. Once in a while she shares some anecdotes about her practice but most importantly, she tries to give the students as much personal attention as they need.
Dorien fell in love with yoga in 2012 and has explored different styles ever since. She began her teaching journey attending a Yin teacher training her in Amsterdam in 2016. Then she traveled to India in 2018 to study Yin and Yang Yoga, as well as the meridians and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Most recently she completed her training in Pregnancy Yoga and Mindful Kids Yoga. Next to her personal yoga practice she has a regular meditation practice and she likes to take this to her students, creating a very mindful approach in her classes. "The practice of yoga gives me a sense of coming home, which is the best feeling there is! In my perspective, yoga gives us the opportunity to celebrate life and being alive, from the inside out. It is my humble mission to reconnect people to themselves. My classes are all about the finding (and respecting) of boundaries, activation of energy and deeper relaxation."
Anett spent her childhood & teenage years in Asia, specifically in Vietnam & Indonesia, where she became fascinated by Buddhist temples and the influence that many spiritual practices placed over Asian cultures. When she reached her mid-20s, she began to embrace alternative paths of knowledge and well-being which led her to study the power of sound with Tibetan and Chakra sound bowls. In parallel, she learned Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP is an approach created in the 1970s and it is used worldwide with the aim to change undesired behaviors using communication and psychology techniques. With these techniques combined she offers therapeutic sound baths.
Morgane always felt an affinity with eastern culture and philosophy. Thanks to her parents she was surrounded by Buddhist art growing up, which sparked her curiosity. Five years ago she felt drawn to start a regular yoga and meditation practice. The benefits of both were astonishing to her. Her life quality was so drastically improved, she knew she had to share her practice with others. Morgane believes that unhelpful, limiting patterns and beliefs can get in the way of personal growth. Through yoga and mindfulness we can overcome this. It is her pleasure and honour to be able to share these tools to help others on their path to achieve optimal health as well as peace of mind.
Since Maria can remember, she was always moving and dancing; in dance schools, on mountains, in gymnastic classes. After 20 years of practicing classical ballet, contemporary dance, and improvisation as a dancer and teacher, the urgency of having an overall knowledge about how the body, its muscles, and joints function came to the surface. In combination with her professional experience as a dance teacher and performer, her pilates class focuses on strengthening the body while mobilizing the joints, expanding the range of movement and awakening the whole body. Embracing exercises from pilates and somatics practices, her aim is to work on achieving a fluid and powerful body that can support and nourish everyday life.
