Your perfect

antidote to stress

About me
Talking about myself cannot be avoided if I want to give you some insight into my background.  Hopefully I can be of service to you through combining languages and yoga. 

I am a Cambridge certified English teacher with work experience in the USA, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany. I have a MSc Degree in Business Administration and work experience as a Business Analyst. I teach (Business) English at different universities and companies and Dutch at my local college and at companies. I also do translations in both languages.

I earned my yoga instructor qualifications in Ireland at the wonderful Himalaya Yoga Valley Institute in Cork. I am registered as a yoga trainer at Yoga Alliance Professionals in the UK.

 

I love the countryside, the seaside and all animals and feel strongly about protecting them. I do my best to live in balance with nature by following most* of the guidance of the yoga and Ayurveda philosophy, both of which are essentially about being in touch with our natural foundations. 

*I am frequently confronted with skepsis towards the devotional element of yoga. In my yoga training in Ireland we distinguished between the yoga that worships and the more western kind of yoga that has essentially cherry-picked the best bits of yoga to contribute to our own physical, mental and yes to some extent spiritual health. As I am only trained to pass on the very basics of yoga and at my core a westerner and a very appreciative but non-idolizing kind of person, I leave the spiritual element to you to discover during your own journey through life.

Namaste,

Chris
