My love for travelling started when I was young. My parents come from different countries and we moved to the Middle East when I was five years old. I grew accustomed to living in new places and grew up with people from many cultures. This still motivates me to venture further and explore far away places. Looking down on the world from the top of a mountain fills me with awe and gives me a feeling of being connected with nature. Going to new places sometimes takes me out of my comfort zone.
Yoga is part of my inward journey. On this journey I come across beautiful places and sometimes encounter challenges on the way. I find that one of the best things about travelling is sharing your experiences with others. Now settled in Delft, I continue my journey inwards while sharing with new people.
Critical Alignment Yoga teacher
I was drawn to the meditatieve approach of Critical Alignment Yoga, which emphasises the use of relaxation and the breath to achieve a natural posture. A lot of attention is given to awareness of your body and your posture through the breath, and this is what I teach.
After completing the Critical Alignment Yoga teacher training in Amsterdam, I travelled in India, France and Portugal. Adventuring outside and within, my journey progressed while studying Osho active meditation techniques, Aqua-floating, Water therapy, Healing Dance, Shamanistic Vision Quest and Aura Reading. Always working with the breath, increasing awareness and learning to let go and surrender to the flow of life.
