I first started doing Yoga in San Francisco, where I was living at the time doing
research for my masters in cultural anthropology.
Being active in some shape or form was always important. As a child and teenager I
loved dancing. When I was in college I found yoga, and it felt like coming home.
Yoga and medidation became an important part of my life, it 'spilled over' in to
every aspect of my life and gave me the courage to make challenging decisions.
After many years of yoga practice and travel I found my 'yoga home' at Svaha Yoga in
Amsterdam. As a cultural anthologist I’ve always had a special interest in other
cultures and philosophy, at Svaha I found that they use a beautiful mix of yoga,
pranayama, meditation and philosophy. After years of practicing yoga I
felt the need to share what I had learned with others so in 2009 I enrolled in
Svaha's 10 month teacher training course.
For me yoga is a metaphor for live, your own breath will take you through the most
challenging of situation
