trained in England, where I lived and worked for fifteen years. After a
career combining social work with fitness and aerobics instruction my
interest in yoga resulted in learning to teach. In 1998 I qualified
(Yoga for Health foundation) and I have taught many classes and age
groups since then, both in England, Holland and recently Tanzania. In 2000 I completed the
children's module and in 2001, the trainers module.
have attended many in-service modules and additional courses focussing
on different aspects of yoga e.g. Ashtanga Vinyasa with John Scott in
Cornwall and lessons in London from Tara Fraser. I have been
most inspired by Satyananda yoga where the essence of yoga is so
clearly reflected in the practises and I am most grateful to swami
Vedantananda Saraswati from whom I have learned so much. In 2007
I made two visits to the ashram of swami Satyananda to experience
different aspects of yoga and the yogic lifestyle. Now I aim to teach
the Satyananda techniques and style in my classes. In 2013 I completed a the Satyanada teacher training of Integral Yoga.
I am a fully recognised member of the Dutch federation of yoga teachers.

I regularly attend inservice training for teachers and I have studied in England, Holland, Portugal, Germany and India.
