Yoga = connection with Self
With total passion I played basketball. I loved the skill, the speed, the togetherness and used it to get rid of tension. Over the years it became more an exercise, though it took a car accident to become aware of the demands I made on my body, the lack of joy, and to realize I needed gentler movements and a joining of heart and mind.
I turned to yoga to ease my body, with inner peace as a bonus, and I started to look forward to these moments of contact with self. A wish grew to share these rewards with others and I looked for a professional training that suited me. I found Yoga Like Water where I learned to lay back, let things unfold, conquer fears, laugh, and trust my body’s innate strength.
Now I am on my own path of sharing, through yoga, all I know to connect with our health, peace and, above all, joy.
Though positive at heart, I lost the lust for life in my teens and went into therapy. I learned to take action, face fears, express them and be more transparent. A quest to know myself and to love started and I have expanded my boundaries ever since.
With my husband I have lived on several continents, adapting to other ways of living, and meeting the nicest people. It has asked me to be more centered and self reliant, to see and accept the goodness in me and others. Over the last decade an awareness has grown how to shape my life with my heart at its core. It is a continuing path of accepting, forgiving and loving.
With this attitude and background, I offer coaching, to find the beauty that resides in us all. It is not about what life throws at us, but how we respond.
Choosing joy is = best decision
Travel means welcoming adventure
Adventure and travel are interrelated for me, ever since I was a kid. It is stepping into the unknown, accepting my fears, creating peace and finding joy.
And this transformation has led me to: Welcome Adventure, in all my endeavours. This wisdom is part of my connection with you.
My lovely family is another way into joy. I have learned so much from my children about courage, freedom, judgement, love, too much to mention here. Playing with them is my greatest joy and gets me out of whatever mood I have.
Home educating my kids has increased my flexibility, out-of-the-box-thinking and reflection. All these discoveries I offer in my support.
Playing like a child = freedom
Creativity can bring flow
Creating is the best way for me to get into the state of flow: time spent without time. Be it drawing, knitting, claying, painting, building, sewing, gardening (bit of an effort, haha), or creating this website.
Lists, expectations, judgements are replaced by a joyful, spacious and loving state of being. It is this state that I wish to create together with you.
