Life can be tough, and even more so, without the tools & self-awareness to navigate the storms. Without perspective or a sense of the bigger picture. I believe that a regular yoga practice (not only asana), is a way to both soothe the human condition and to experience discomfort in a safe way. I don’t believe in the good-vibes only approach. I believe in the all-vibes welcome – let’s deal with the ups and the downs with grace and consciousness. A regular practice can help us connect with ourselves and each other in a kinder and more generous way. I learn and teach in service of this.

Camilla

Toen Camilla aan de dansacademie studeerde leerde ze yoga kennen als prachige aanvulling op dans, de asanas hielpen om het lichaam sterk, soepel en gezond te houden. Maar na een tijdje ontdekte ze dat yoga meer te bieden had dan alleen beweging. Het bood haar een innerlijke reis, kennismaking met een bewustzijn in zichzelf en daarmee een compleet andere kijk op de wereld om haar heen. Een reminder en mantra voor Camilla is “What is done in love, is done well”.

Ze is nog steeds actief als professioneel danser en heeft een liefde voor het ontdekken van creatieve en speelse manieren van beweging. Het belang dat ze voelt voor het creëren van harmonie in lichaam en geest, heeft ertoe geleid dat ze nu in opleiding is om Yoga Therapeut te worden.
