Cassandra Kosten

About 20 years ago I experienced yoga for the first time. Unfortunately I used to come in class running and stressed, which made me fail to experience the essence of yoga. Yet there was something that attracted me and so I continued to attend classes. It still took some years to find the inner peace to fully enjoy what yoga brings, but now I know that yoga is my path.

But, yoga is not a thing to talk about. You need to practice it! Only then you’ll discover what it can provide to you. I hope to see you soon in one of my classes!

Cassandra says:Yoga is a gift to yourself, each and every practice. And I’d like to share this gift with as many people as possible.

Mai

Originally from Japan. I am a yoga teacher, a Feldenkrais teacher, and a mother of two. After I devoted my life to dance for 18 years, I encountered yoga. Yoga has been always there for me and it became the simplest way to come back to myself.
Feldenkrais method is also a big passion for me. The method taught me the world and keeps inspiring me. And through the method, I have deep knowledge of anatomy as well.

Hope to see you in the studio!

Yoga came into my life when I needed it the most. Working on my career, running a family of then 3, travelling and living in different countries it seemed fun but I was too much in my head. My body started giving me signals like insomnia and chronic tiredness. That’s when I took my first yoga class. It was 2013. Since then my world has drastically changed.
 
Now as a yoga teacher I like to help people to connect with their inner powers, to be more resilient, happy and full of energy because this is what “normal” should be. Take a breath, smile, here we go…

Fanny

Dear yogis & yoginis,

My name is Fanny. I am a yoga teacher, nature lover & art maker. I have a passion for sharing, which makes teaching a pleasure.
When I first started, yoga allowed me to redefine the relationship I had with my body, creating a more sustainable & safe way to move. Step by step, yoga became part of my everyday life, developing a better, richer, and more sustainable relationship with myself & with the world around me.
I will use all this experience, my love for & knowledge of yoga, to guide you through the creative flow of my yoga classes.

Robinson

After her art and philosophy studies, Robinson left for India to explore the philosophy of Yoga. She then became hooked on the postural practice of yoga as she spend time with Iyengar and Hatha teachers. Back in Holland she started to develop deep love for Vinyasa.

“I felt like I travelled out of the mind and into the body which gave me so much more joy in life.
I am passionate about helping you to connect to your body and feel better in your body. Whether that’s releasing any tension/stress or find your inner strength. In my classes I will guide you to stabilize and then flow with ease from that fundament.”

Ashton

My name is Ashton. Lover of all things natural, beautiful and inspiring. I found yoga about 11 years ago while taking a free class at my University in Toronto, Ontario. I was hooked right away. Although it took me many years to develop a solid yoga asana practice, as soon as I attended that first class, I knew from that moment yoga would become part of my life in some shape or way. Movement is a medicine I use on a daily basis, whether that’s yoga, dancing, running, biking or swimming. It brings me into balance and a state of gratitude. I believe the more we get in tune with our body and bring awareness to our life, the more sustainable it can be. Life-long vegan and believer in living your life with purpose and devotion. All we need is love. Join me in a yoga class where we explore pranayama and dynamic movement as we move to the flow of our breath.

Angelika

Yoga hit me at around nine years old and it still amazes me. After doing my teacher training I really felt the urge to share the power of yoga. What I would love to share with you is how you really learn how to feel your own body. As well as how to connect to your mental, emotional and physical health through breath and movement. The main goal my classes will be to sweat, re-energize, relax and to get to know yourself better. But most importantly to enjoy it! Hope to see you soon 😉

Jenna

Originally from Finland, the year 2016 I found my way into the Netherlands to study becoming a clinical psychologist. Along the way I noticed that a more spiritual framework was needed to explore the human experience – yoga became my main focus.

My yoga mat is a place where I can return to no matter what happens in life. I know my practice will always be there for me independent of the phase in my life. For me, meditation and yoga are the most comprehensive tools to adapt to life and learn more about myself. I have been trained in Vinyasa and Yin yoga. Hope to see you on the mat!

Iris

My name is Iris, I am a mother of 2 and I teach several styles of yoga (vinyasa, hot, yin/yang, yin). Practicing yoga to me is a practice of/for life. Once started so many years ago, I could not imagine my life without it. Not only has practicing yoga strengthened my body and calmed my mind, helped me find healing and love and a deeper connectedness to my inner world and therefore the outer, yoga has provided a reflective space, the source for a peaceful life inside all of its turbulent outings. Sharing that feels only natural and I feel grateful every time I teach a class. Becoming a yoga teacher has been quite a journey so far, and continues to be. Every class is a wonderful chance to guide people to tap into the present moment, intuition, creativity and the ongoing process of expanding awareness. I love how this resonates in group context.

Samaneh

My name is Samaneh, lover of nature, animal welfare, and all kinds of yoga styles! I used to do another job. Every morning when I was waking up, thinking is it really what I want to do for my entire life?! Till I found yoga! I had several experiences in doing other exercises but for me, yoga and its challenges were all the things which I needed! It helped me through some of the hardest moments of my life. It was amazing, after several years I found peace, happiness, and health altogether. At first yoga class was just a place to release stress and tension. But later, I was thrilled to do yoga more and more. Then through my be loving and encouraging yoga master, I went to India to pass a series of classes and be certified as an international yoga instructor. The different styles I greeted on this path taught me a lot about yoga and also about myself. On the other hand, it allowed me to fulfil my desire to help people finding calmness and awareness.
I believe that no matter where in the world you are, you can always rely on yoga to speak to you and others.

I hope I can help you finding peace, grow stronger, healthier and happier each and every day! see you soon on your mat!

Laura

For me yoga is travelling through the self in consciousness. The mat is the place where I can practice and give space towards everything that wants to come across. Since 2011 yoga became a part of my life due to a burnout. I started to become more aware my bodily sensations that wanted to come out freely and learned to embrace every part. In this I found my purpose in life; through the connection with myself I can connect to the other. Connection is my motivation to share this with others from heart to heart. Since 2016 I’m teaching yoga and studied: Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Vipassana Meditation. I walk this path with great curiosity and interest in human beings. What thrives us, how does the body tells you what you need and what is blocking? In my Yin Yoga teachings I will take you on a journey through the body to dive deep.
