Annemarie IJKEMA (Ambika) is a certified Sivananda hatha yoga teacher (200 hours RYS). In 2014 she completed an 80 hours yoga alliance teacher training course by Sarah Powers on Yin & Yang yoga and mindfulness. In 2015 she completed a prenatal and postpartum TTC by Carla Anselm. In 2016 she completed the Yin Yoga fundamentals course by Joe Barnett (30 HRS) as well as the Sivananda TTC refresher course and accessible yoga course.
She’s been teaching yoga since 2010 on an ad-hoc basis, and since 2012 regularly at the Sampoorna Yoga Studio and the EU Council.
Her classes are 60 or 90 minutes, based on the 5 points of yoga: proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet, positive thinking & meditation.
Yoga is an integral part of Ambika’s life as she’s dividing her time and energy between her marketing consulting work for EVA (vegetarian organisation) & teaching yoga so helping people living a more happy and healthy life.
She lives a vegan lifestyle as this corresponds perfectly with the Ahimsa value of the yoga tradition & with her own values and yoga practice.
Ambika is available for both individual as in-company group classes upon request.
