something to look forward to!

After the birth of our second child I took on these classes and I haven't stopped since!
I wish I could go more often, but for now, I am so happy with my once a week !
It's a nice group of people and no two lessons are the same.
It's amazing how Chrisje teaches us how to better ourselves & our bodies, in practice and in daily life.
She is a very experienced teacher and happy to share this experience with us!
Highly recommended!

I can only say yes to everything written in former reviews. Chrisje teached me how to move again after breaking a dorsal vertibrae in a horsebackriding accident. With very efficacious practice she succeeded in making my body ánd mind stronger as ever. Nowadays, I 'm very proud to be one of her students. She takes care of everyone 's individual special needs. After class, when we can enjoy a healthy drink, we often laugh about how she sees "everything ".So no cheating.


On the other hand she always keeps a wakeful eye on us having a safe practice. She teaches us options for every level. In her words: no pain, enjoy, it's just yoga. Thank you Chrisje, for motivating us physical and mental. For your compassion and patience, especially when we're having a bad day. You're always there. Now I'm very curious wat the new "hot with a new touch" lessons will bring. See you all soon? X Nadine.

Zeker een aanrader

Zeer aangename, steeds afwisselende lessen in een aangename ruime omgeving. Het verfrissende groentesapje achteraf maakt het helemaal af!

Elke maandagochtend na de yoga zijn mijn batterijen weer opgeladen voor een hele week. Er komt een enorme rust over me en toch zit ik boordevol energie.
Mijn lichaam en geest worden gevoed door Chrisje haar passie voor yoga en haar oneindige energie. (En de lekkere, gezonde sapjes achteraf).
Dankjewel Chrisje.

balans en energie

Met al haar ervaring, haar passie en oprechte betrokkenheid brengt Chrisje telkens opnieuw een les die me raakt en me dichter bij mezelf brengt. De opgedane energie en balans geef ik een belangrijke plaats in mijn leven. Mijn lichaam leren kennen, mogelijkheden en beperkingen leren aanvoelen fysiek en mentaal, dat is wat Chrisje mij steeds opnieuw leert.
Alles wordt gewoon zoveel mooier met de yoga sessies van Chrisje.
Heel erg bedankt voor alles wat je ons geeft. X Kristel

Great yoga/pilates teacher

Chrisje gives a lot af personal adjustments. The pilates class is a great body core focused workout. You will be able to make a lot of progress in flexibility and body strength.

Just the ticket for me!

Chrisje's classes saved my life at one point. You can take this quite literally. Even now the yoga class seems to pick me up and make my day. It is always bright and sunny in there even when it's raining outside. The music sort of transports me. Her classes are always different. She is incredibly creative. Most of the time brimming with energy. Yet she can show great empathy and compassion. Classes are both strenuous and fun. Just the ticket for me!

Born to teach!

Chrisje is a lovely teacher, full of energy and very focused. She is passionate about yoga, has a great knowledge of the body and get's the best out of each student. Her classes are very enjoyable, though with a focus on details but still allowing everyone to feel comfortable during practice. I highly recommend Chrisje as a teacher!

Average: 4.0 of 5 stars

What I appreciate most in Chrisje as a teacher is that she is very observant for every student’s individual strengths and weaknesses, capacities and needs. During class she regularly gives tips and corrections from person to person. Even though you are in a group lesson, you get private care. Moreover, she keeps classes interesting by alternating exercises, poses and frequencies.

Chrisje is a passionate, intelligent and super sweet yoga teacher who made me fall deeply in love with the practice. She has a high knowledge of how our bodies work and what they can learn and achieve. She's strict (in a gentle way) and she sure gets the best out of you! Probably the mind will automatically follow, but she also helps you along the spiritual practice as well in a very modern and daily usefull way. If you are looking for a correct and safe, but challenging way to practice yoga at any level (beginner, advanced), this is an awesome teacher to have in your life!
