I teach Vinyasa (fast-paced, fluid – 1 breath, 1 movement) yoga in private sessions to all levels from beginners to advanced. Classes can be 30, 60 or 90 min long (you decide) and include: a theme supported by yogic texts, a short meditation, asanas (poses) practice and some pranayama (breathing exercises).
Yoga is for everybody and as a teacher my mission is also to make yoga available to everybody. My intention is to provide a safe, judgement-free space and practice for my students. In my classes everyone is and will always be welcome regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, political opinions or health status. I feel grateful and honored to guide and help anyone on their own yoga journey.
Classes are given 1:1 in the Amsterdam area. Please note that I don’t welcome students at my place. Classes can also be given online on Zoom.
I create personalized classes , based on your physical abilities and limitations and according to what you wish to practice. We will discuss this prior to our first class. Each class has a theme and focus.
I offer classes in English or French.
What to expect:
All my classes are influenced by my own practice. I teach what I practice myself.
We start with an intention setting and centering practice followed by asanas (poses). I will teach you a variety of asanas: standing postures, balances, backbends, inversions, arm balances, twists… We finish the class with a cool down and relaxing Savasana (laying meditation). We will also practice some breathing exercises, I will help you use your breath to move. I like to use yogic texts, quotes, poems and music during our practice.
Useful information FOR ONLINE CLASSES:
- Download Zoom (zoom.us) preferably on your desktop and login with the meeting ID and password. The credentials will be sent to you prior to the class.
- Set up your practice space in advance: Have a yoga or fitness mat ready and some space to practice. I encourage you to use props such as blocks, cushions or straps. I will always inform you about which props are needed prior to the class. If you have sensitive knees it might be useful to have an extra blanket available as well.
