Born in Amsterdam, 1970, after high school I studied European Studies (Italian, Spanish, European Law, Art History) at the University of Amsterdam. I started working as a Communications/PR advisor and Press Officer for the Dutch Government in 1997 and continued working for different ministeries and projects. 15 years ago I started practicing with Gösta and Alison from Svaha Yoga and found my way to yoga. Many inspiring teachers, like Alexandra Waters from Anahata Yoga crossed my path, but I really felt like coming home, diving into Jivamukti Yoga. It was everything I was looking for and wasn't just focused on the asanas but so much more. In 2016 I decided it was time to pass the teachings on to others, and enrolled in the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training. After returning home I started teaching Thrive Yoga Studio in Amsterdam to spread the light in my home town!
