After just one session, I realized how healing and powerful Yoga Nidra can be. My body felt so relaxed and restored and my mind was filled with good intentions! I started doing it as much as I could and saw the quality of my life massively improving. So when my favorite teacher announced that she was starting a training group, I instantly signed up! My Deep Relax Yoga Nidra Intensive training took place at the House of Deep Relax, founded by Eliane Bernhard, who is leading in the development and evolution of Yoga Nidra in Amsterdam and the rest of the Netherlands.
My background is in Psychology, and that used to be my focus, being all in the mind. During a tough period in my life I discovered Yoga and was instantly sold! It gave me so much rest and so much stability, and it showed me how important the balance between body and mind is, and that one can not flourish without the other. Due to that background in Psychology I’m thrilled and can get so excited about the science behind Yoga Nidra, how it works and that it is proven to be effective to improve health and happiness.
Besides Yoga, my passions are vegan cooking, enjoying live music and expressing myself on the dancefloor with my friends. As a born and raised Amsterdammer, I’m always chatty and talking to everyone, especially about the things I’m passionate about. To see Yoga taking over my beloved city and all those vegan restaurants popping up everwhere, that fills my heart with joy. And for me, joy is the key!
