yoga therapy sessions
I create accessible and safe spaces where I support you in your personal journey towards recovery. We will map out your wishes and needs and make an integrative therapy plan that fits your life, using verbal and non-verbal tools, based on hatha yoga. We talk and we use asana (body posture), breathwork, mantra, mindful awareness practices and meditation during the sessions and you will integrate this into your life, for sustainable changes. Email to make your appointment for yoga therapy with me, online and in-person.

During my 20 years of experience in yoga and psychiatry, I developed an attitude and vision that is a mixture of yoga, compassion and social psychiatry. In my non-dualistic view on existence I seek and find ways to help you find connection within yourself while strengthening the connection with the world around you as well. Be the leader of change of your own life!

training and mentoring
The sophisticated training programs will inspire you to be an open minded, knowledgeable health professional who is using yoga as a tool in therapy, and be a specialized yoga teacher or therapist. We offer full (holistic) yoga therapy trainings and specialization trainings for yoga in mental health care.
As we all know, the real work starts after the training! Get help implementing what you’ve learned from me with Network Yoga Therapy, your Svastha Yoga Therapy training any in another training from any other teacher and/ or institute. Make an appointment for yoga therapy with me, online and in-person.
Mentoring can include:
- Implementation support when you start creating your programs or integrate yoga as a therapy in your professional work (groups or individual clients). I can support the whole process or only some parts (for example the start-up). We can use the practical Network Yoga Therapy templates for yoga therapy so adjust so it fits your situation, groups and clients.
- We can discuss (challenging) individual cases.
- Burnout prevention and compassion fatigue, where your role as a teacher or therapist as an instrument in therapy is what we discuss, as we looking for self-care practices that fit you, finding your natural balance.
