Yoga Therapy or a Private are one-on-one classes where we work with a specific issue of problem. It’s a mind-body approach that can be helpful when your Flow just isn’t there and you feel stuck in life. When having a hard time making decisions or like to work on changing your habits. But don’t hesitate to call me for a private when there are problems like psychosis, stress & anxiety related issues, trauma or depression. I am educated and experienced and very willing to help you if I can!


My teachings are based on the tradition of Krishnamacharya. His teaching was based on this principle — “Teach what is appropriate for each individual”.

Are you ready to find inner peace and a wholehearted living?


I am a yoga teacher and community psychiatric nurse (RN) from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. For the last 17 years I’ve been working in the field of psychiatry while practicing yoga; I started teaching yoga nine years ago. I am a multi-passionate mum. Little things can inspire me and create a little flame in my heart and a written idea in my Moleskine notebook. I Love to draw, write and make photo’s. Traveling the world on my own and dance with friends. I should sleep a little bit more and I don’t like people who judge others because they are different Original.

The Mind

The Mind always intrigued me. I work in mental health facilities since 1998. First as a psychiatric nurse and now as a community psychiatric nurse. What is this ‘Mind’ and what does it mean to have a healthy Mind? When is a Mind in-order and when dis-ordered? What has Mind to do with a healthy body and a happy life? And what role plays the Mind in Yoga? Can meditation change the Mind? Read Journal and wonder with me.
Work your Mind


As a woman and especially now being a mother I am aware of my circular existence. Moon cycles, body cycles and life cycles are more of my awareness. The better the understanding the more Flow in life. ‘Original Mama’ was born when I was pregnant and focuses on the power of Womanhood. Read JOURNAL for more on Original Mama.

The House of Love

The House of Love (since 2010) is presented by a Honu (turtle) with a Heart. This Honu symbolizes the one who carries her House with her and feels Home where the Heart is.

Under this roof my projects come alive. It’s about living Yoga, Love & compassion, unite and care about the world.

The House of Love believes in every persons self healing ability and helps people to become conscious. First of their breath, body and mind. And help to find consciousness of the power of their actions for themselves and others. This can lead to personal but also social change.

This is why I believe that a better world is possible – Breath by Breath.
