I love to share the energizing quality of yoga, mindfulness and meditation. Yoga and meditation increase inner strength and flexibility as well as stillness, tranquility and peace. All these attributes are necessary to listen and to grow in spirit which is my deep intention.
Grow in spirit – experience yourself
I believe that growth happens from a deeper level of connection with your Self. Growth is changeable and nonlinear and as human beings we make experiences and learn, we grow to what our heart already holds: beauty, joy, abundance, love and inner freedom. From my experience yoga, meditation, mindfulness and conscious dance are a pathways to my inner landscape promoting the growth of my inner garden. Thereby my own dedication and process is more important then the result or the outer form. A solid foundation and my inner attitude to a higher nature let me embrace challenges of life. Along the way I continue to grow in spirit, spirit in the sense of aware- and consciousness.
I am reliable, open, skillful, practical and light-hearted in my work and can look back on working with people from all walks of life. I am currently cooperating with the Museum Arnhem and create and guide the program “Mindfulness op zaal“.What I really love is to inspire, support and see humans thrive on their path of yoga, mindfulness and meditation. My life experience and my trainings with regarded international yoga and meditation teacher (mostly Anusara Yoga related or Kaschmir Shaiva Tantra) fused in my Yoga Teacher Training which I named Jai Ma, a praise to the great mother, to the great goddess and to Mother Earth. I have trained more than 150 Yoga Teacher with a 200 h RYT® certification in the Netherlands and Germany. In 2005 I was initiated to my path of yoga by the western Indian Brahman, Sivan Nambhoothiri of Integral Yoga Berlin | Yoga Vihar, a classical path of yoga (advaita-vedanta) and I am grateful for the direct transmission and exchange in my early years of yoga practice. A great inspiration to me are female teacher, like Sally Kempton (Meditation) and Sianna Sherman. I immersed shortly in Kunadlini yoga and studied intensively Anusara Yoga and its tantric yoga philosophy. Now I am an experienced 500+ hour E-RYT® certified yoga, mindfulness and meditation teacher and trainer with Hatha, Vinyasa, Restorative, Therapeutic yoga, Yin yoga, Pre- and Postnatal yoga, meditation and mindfulness. I am passionate about visiting philosophy trainings emphasizing on Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of the heart, with teacher like Bill Mahony. Recently I have published several articles in the german magazine Yoga-Aktuell, regularly teach at the Dutch Yoga Festival Terschelling. Next to yoga I facilitate Ecstatic Dance Arnhem.
I am living with my two sons, my husband Bjorn and our dog in Nijmegen since 2011, moving from Berlin to the Netherlands, to live at the woods close to nature where the horses and bisons live wild at the river Waal. Here I run my studio Yogapoint Arnhem. I love to visit german speaking countries and friends for offering my Jai Ma Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training as well as workshops and other events on invitation.
