About this trip

This week is not only a training, it is a retreat. Living in the community of the beautifully designed house of Earthlinks, enjoying 100% vegan food, herbal teas and juices (no worries, there will be coffee;). Meditation in a nearby monk monastery and along the river nearby the house. Where we will discover how to safely integrate the teachings of Yin Yoga in our classes and personal practice, but as well take the time to relax. To enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Hikkaduwa; learn how to surf or improve your surfing skills, new friendships, community… Possibility to organise an Ayurvedic treatment and have cooking class upon request. Finding balance between Yin and Yang. 


Yin Yoga is a slower paced and more passive style of yoga where postures are held longer, ranging from two to five minutes. In Yin, we settle our bodies into a particular pose and let go of all muscular recruitment and surrender to the ground for gravity to do its work. By doing so, we relax our muscles and apply moderate stress to the deepest layers of connective tissues in the body - tendons, fascia, and ligaments - improving the health and range of motion.


You will learn about the concept of Yin and Yang, the difference between them and how they complement each other. Creating both yin and yin/yang sequences, how to practice and how to teach more than twenty Yin Yoga postures with it’s modifications and variations. We will also take a closer look at comparative and functional anatomy, differences in skeletal and joint structures and how these differences may affect  each individual’s practice. The knowledge behind TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine; what is energy and what are the meridians we hear so much about?

Passionate about words and teaching yoga a, I am teaching yoga retreats and trainings worldwide. In my life, -without even realising this until my late thirties- yoga and meditation have been a natural way of daily practices. At a young age, drawing, writing and walking were a form of meditation, allowing myself to observe the world around me, and using these observations in my story-writing. After attending my classes, you will leave with a smile on your face, I will find a way to let you feel good about yourself, and inspire you to become the most beautiful version you can be, while staying down to earth with humor and contagious laughter. My classes are not only inspirational but sweaty, dynamic, creative, fun and unpredictable. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga. I believe that yoga starts the moment you have finished your practice, when you rolled up your mat and go back to your life. “What we learn on the mat, we take with us…”
