Exploring the Wonders of Yoga and Personal Growth

In 2017, I discovered Yoga by chance.
I wanted to find a way to energize my body in the morning and relieve the stress I was experiencing at work. Little did I know, I would soon fall in love with this practice.

For the first few years, I practiced alone through online resources. However, when I lost my job in the South of France, I decided to take a four-week Yoga teacher training in the Netherlands. It was through this training that I was introduced to the roots of Yoga and the Hatha Yoga style. I quickly realized that Yoga is more than just a physical practice; it can positively impact many aspects of our lives.

My passion for Yoga philosophy, personal development, and biology/physiology has deepened my knowledge and practice in recent years. I have been exploring and applying personal development tools for the past decade, and I was thrilled to discover the many connections between these tools and Yoga philosophy.

While I enjoy teaching various styles of yoga, such as Yin, Vinyasa, and meditation, my true passion lies with Hatha Yoga. The practice helps me to focus, get creative, and calm my thoughts. It has brought balance to my life, and my mind is much quieter. As a teacher, there are two parts of the practice that I particularly love guiding my students through: challenging postures that help them find confidence and strength, and the final relaxation, which I have developed into my personal signature for each of my classes.

In 2018, my husband and I visited the island of Bonaire and fell in love with its beauty and the diving opportunities. We made the decision to move there permanently in October 2020, and it has been one of the best decisions of my life. Bonaire is the perfect place for me as I love spending time with animals, nature, and in the water. When I am not on my mat or underwater, you can find me reading a book, playing with my pets, observing wild animals, or taking care of sea turtles.

I believe that Yoga can change people's lives, bring peace and joy, open minds and hearts, and make the world a better place. What motivates me every day is helping people build a foundation for a routine that supports their lifestyle and goals.

Witnessing my students grow and become better versions of themselves is what makes teaching Yoga so rewarding.

I can't wait to meet and join you on this adventure!
