Cecile Mertens is a member of the professional association VMBN cat. 1 which makes her Mindfulness training eligible for reimbursement by multiple insurers. In addition to her training sessions, she also teaches meditation and Yin Yoga at Thrive

Cecile provides yoga, coaching and mindfulness training to both adults and children. drawing on more than 30 years of experience in the field of awareness and spiritual deepening; many forms of yoga, meditation, bodywork and psychotherapy. She regularly follows longer (silent) retreats with her teacher in India, †The great thing about mindfulness training is that several forms come together in a clear, simple and playful way and that it can be directly applied in daily reality. which, with all that it gives and takes, invites us every moment to be present here and now, open and awake. The training provides scope for deepening where necessary, but also for the necessary humor and perspective “

I teach yoga, meditation and mindfulness because I love to guide people in discovering and deepening the possibilities of their body and mind, and of the depth and gentle power of inner silence. I like to teach in Thrive because of the pleasant atmosphere with attention for everyone. In my lessons I like to give space for deepening but also for the necessary humor and perspective, with a connection to the reality of daily life
