My grandmother was an Amsterdam based yoga teacher, but as a child I only found it very funny her doing all these pretzel-like poses. Little did I know that in 2002 I would find my own way to yoga.
In 2016 I felt it was time to do my Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in India. Some call Jivamukti Yoga the punk rock of yoga. And I agree. At its core there’s pure spiritual activism, integrated into strong, creative āsana classes, with a focus on the ancient yoga teachings/philosophy.
I bow down to my dear teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Judith Hanson Lasater and my amazing mentor Emma Henry. David Life just says it all: “ Yoga is not for people interested in staying the same”.
Sharon is a 300 Hour Jivamukti® Yoga Certified teacher and 50 Hour Restorative Yoga teacher (Relax and Renew®, level 1 certification, teacher training with Judith Hanson Lasater and Lizzie Lasater).
