I met yoga when I was 17 years old through one of my examples in life: my older sister. She took me to a yoga class, somewhere in a gym in De Jordaan. And I have never quit practicing since. In yoga I found answers on my need for connection and companionship. To allow myself to be here unconditionally has given me a firm foundation as a human being.

On a turning point in my life, when I realized that a professional career in astrology would take up more time than expected,I was asked to share yoga classes for children. I completed a 50hr certification to work with kids and youngsters. This step kicked off the interaction between my personal growth and my professional life. I have studied yoga science ever since: with The Fat Yogis (200+ hrs) and Svaha Yoga (500+hrs). Eastern philosophy and psychological astrology have kept me captivated day in and day out. My hunger for connection sometimes wheeled out of course in overachievement. When I developed Reumatoid Arthritis in 2020 I learned that this sense of deep and real connection starts with observing all that is.  And now I know that achievement is of no importance.
