Welcome to 8Petals.
This is my personal webpage where I share things that inspire me on my journey.


Most of the time I am a student, dedicated to practicing and experimenting with yoga, but I also love sharing this amazing gift from the Guru’s. I teach a few classes and privates mainly at Tula Yoga Studio and sometimes sub at other studios in Amsterdam.  Check out my schedule here.

On my blog I have a personal project/experiment going on that has to do with expression. I have been a vigorous journal writer since a very young age, but writing for ‘an audience’ kind of scares me. So this is my challenge. Thank you to the ones that have inspired and lovingly pushed me to do this.

Why it’s Crucial for Women to Heal the Mother Wound

We essentially are made and born from our mother and father coming together. So not only do our parents obviously influence who we become during our lives with (and without) them, but I think that on a cellular, (un)consciousness level we are made up of a combination of them. So what I’m starting to wonder …

Self Love & Charlie Chaplin

I found this poem that aparently was written by Charlie Chaplin. I don’t know whether he was into misticism and self exploration, but I’m sure he was a very smart and conscious man. His words are inspiring and apply as much now as ever. I added this video as it again shows that he obvioulsy …

Mystical Heart

I would like to share this beautifull essay written by Benjamin Yudin. The mystical heart, like the divine soul, is created over time through the moment to moment struggle against our state of sleep.
