About me

What I offer as a therapist, in my classes and lectures it always has the same mission: offering techniques & methods for inner management to discover yourself, be inspired and learn how to let go. Aware of what prevents you from experiencing inner freedom through Meditation.

More than 30 years I was fully focused on the 'body mind complex'. Creating a meaningful life, with value, care & joy for my clients where body, mind, heart and soul can be experienced as one integrated wholeAlways in search for the energy and wisdom behind all knowledge. During my youth, I also explored emotions 'on stage' in the theater world. Observing and working with people with physical & mental issues enriched my private practice.

 


Self enquiry

 

My richest moments are revelations in Meditation during silent retreats

( vipassana ) or in Yoga Nidra where wisdom arises from stillness and the heart. These insights are more clear and guide my directions in life. Even Pain, illness, fear, sadness, insecurity and disappointment are valuable for growth. That's why there is gratitude and love for the change I made in my life.

In 2000 I studied Natural Health Therapy, in 2006 I created 'Mindful Yoga' in different Yogacenters. In private sessions I offer natural heath therapies, yoga, Yoga Nidra & massages.

In 2008 the 'Nia' white Belt, re-awakened my dance vibes with joy for life. I worked as a CEP  and co-creator in 7 Yoga-teacher-trainings in Belgium and India.

I had the most inspiring talks, meditations, courses, workshops, education programs and interactions with many many yoga minded people. The emotional lifestyles and psychology of the human mind inspired me to become a co-creator of the 'Upward spiral program', a10 days 'Yoga Psychology Program', offered in India, together with 'Yogalife'. These beautiful 6 trainings in Goa influenced my approach deeply. 

Energetically I moved on and joined in 2015 the Integrative Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra/Prana Awakening and the Pelgrimage in 2019 brought me some fundamental paradoxical changes, through me and around me. This method reinforced and re-ignited the light of consciousness in me and others. My personal experiences  and these methods became my full offer and life approach, in my private practice and in my weekly classes. 

Stimulating the self healing process and emotional integration is what I support.
If it does not change your life, it's not yoga'. 

My lectures, classes and experiences can mean a difference for mental and physical needs, balance, souplesse, choices and values  for your next step in life.

 

Yoga Nidra makes meditation easy, Just lie down, relax, breath and do nothing. Stay awake, observe and allow the intelligence of the body to do it's job. This Amrit method can solve many issues.
