I started doing yoga as a teen and tried different kinds of yoga since then. When I was in my twenties I made a career change, from international sales and marketing to coaching. While working as a lifecoach, I also studied haptotherapy for 5 years. Eventually I opened my own company, Puur Jij Haptotherapie en Coaching, where I help people reconnect with their bodies, with themselves and with their feeling.
In January 2014 I started my 2-year teacher training course with Yoga Vidya in Rotterdam. I am educated in the tradition of Swami Sivananda, that has a holistic approach. I love combining my work as a coach with my work yoga teacher, and with my own practice on the path of yoga.
