About the Workshops
Over the years I have noticed that when students have the theoretic and phylosophical knowledge availble to them, they are more motivated to practice. Yoga is largely a practical science, however it also has a rich and extremely far reaching library of knowledge that supports this practice of understanding our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being.
During workshops we will explore both theoretic and/or phylosophical knowledge in combination with practice.
To me, the knowledge can only be applied when it comes alive in practice and in life.
During the workshops we will look at how to make this possible.

Where do the workshops take place?
Workshop locations may vary.
Exact information will be on the page where you can sign up.
Most workshops take place in Amsterdam West area.
How many people can attend your workshops?
I work well with small groups.
I can connect better with each person and give more individual attention.
I think Yoga should be taught taking each individual into consideration, and as a teacher I do not have this capacity in groups larger than 12 people.
Do I need any additional materials to do this course?
That depends on your curiosity.
I will recommend a variety of books, but it is not required to do the course.
For the practical side of the course you will need a yogamat, and any additional props you need to sit comforably.
Of course a pen and a notebook will come in handy!
Are the workshops theoretical or practical?
During the workshops I will spend time on theory.
However, without the application in practice theory stays a mental concept. And in Yoga practice we are trying to calm the mental waves so we need to understand the knowledge in a practical way so that it becomes part of our being. We are developing wisdom and intuition which come from a non-mental/intellectual place.
Is it possible to do the workshop online?
If you would like to follow my workshop online, please reach out. We can discuss if this is possible.
However, presential classes are highly recommended as the interaction that takes place in the room cannot be experienced in the same way online.
