With her creative background in fashion she turned her life 360 degrees and found her way on the yoga path, where she can fully express and combine all of her passions. Yoga unveiled more and more of her true self over time and this never-ending process helped her through some really difficult challenges and losses in her life. This is where true yoga comes to life: it’s about how you deal with these kind of situations, are you able to surrender, to accept even if the outcome is not what you had in mind? This is what she brings into her classes: Flow. Breath. Awareness. Music and.. Fun! You’ll definitely be challenged on different levels!
Barbara teaches different levels of VinyasaFlow ( and PranaVinyasa inspired, Shiva Rea), YinYang, Breathwork and Prenatal classes (Birthlight).

I have always been an active person. I taught aerobics during my study years and later developed a love for outdoor training and running. Being physically active was a way to quiet my mind. But at a certain point in my life, feeling “stuck” at on office job and overwhelmed by the responsibilities and changes in my life through motherhood, I needed more balance and that was when I discovered yoga. I fell in love with both the physical and mental awareness that yoga brought me and wanted to share and motivate others to find the right balance. Yoga teaches you to feel what you need; sometimes a challenge out of your comfort zone, sometimes a moment of peace and space in a hectic life.
I still love (to teach) outdoor training and love to go out for a run (especially with my dog along the beach!), but it is on the mat where I find my balance (myself!). My passion lies with the dynamic flow of Vinyasa Yoga and in my classes I like to move, feel (free), explore, learn and have fun!
Philine is a fun loving, energetic, and spontaneous yogi who is always looking for new experiences and challenges. Though yoga has been in her life in some way since watching her grandfather’s headstands as a young girl, it wasn’t until her thirties that yoga became a daily part of her life.
It was during her 10 years abroad in Costa Rica that she first experienced yoga classes that were truly intense both physically and mentally; it was nothing like the yoga she had done before! Later, while living in the US, she was inspired and motivated by the high level of the students and teachers around her. That was when her bond with yoga truly formed and she began her formal instruction and has since become certified in various yoga styles (Hatha yoga, Vinyasa yoga RYT200 and most currently Shiva Rea’s Prana Flow)
With her background in dance, flow and fluidity of movement in her classes are key. Her powerful themed-based Vinyasa classes are juicy, fun, playful and allow students to get out of their heads, explore their bodies, and see where it takes them. She wants students to think of the classes as adult playtime, and not work with limitations but see possibilities.
She hopes to see you on the mat!
JUDITH VAN DER KLINK
Judith has been teaching movement and dance for more then twenty years. She initially trained as a contemporary dancer at London Contemporary dance school, later as a teacher and choreographer. During her years as a dancer and teacher Judith discovered Yoga and fell in love with the beauty and spirituality of the practice.
Judith’s classes are filled with creativity and flow, but she also feels strongly about guiding students through a safe practice. Always with emphasis on safe personal alignment. Personalizing her classes, catering for different bodies, backgrounds, abilities and needs. But above all sharing the joy of movement,
Judith is very grateful to be able to share her love for yoga. Every practice is different, every day our bodies feel different, every day we feel a little different. The journey of yoga is full off surprises, discoveries and endless possibilties as we move towards stillness. Connecting one breath to one movement at a time.
Vanaf het moment dat ze in 1991 begon met poweryoga is yoga niet meer weg te denken uit haar leven. Terwijl ze jarenlang in de muziekmarketing werkte trok de filosofie achter yoga steeds sterker aan haar en voltooide ze in 2018 de opleiding tot Vinyasa yoga docent bij de Nieuwe Yogaschool in Amsterdam. Ze houdt naast een krachtige flow op het ritme van de adem ook van meditatieve momenten om verbinding te vinden met die diepere laag. Haar motivatie is gebaseerd op de sterke wil haar ervaringen te delen met anderen, een zaadje te planten bij mensen, om yoga te proberen en te ervaren, omdat het zoveel inzichten kan geven en zoveel goeds voor je kan betekenen. En dat is hard nodig in deze huidige tijd waarin stress en werkdruk zo gewoon zijn geworden. Ze begeleidt mensen graag in hun yoga avontuur, want zo ziet zij het. Muziek en stem zijn haar andere passies, net als het schrijven van blogs, natuurlijk het liefst over yoga! Ze ziet je graag in één van haar lessen!
Hi! Jarenlang ben ik werkzaam geweest in de jeugdhulpverlening als gezins- en jongerencoach. Sinds een aantal jaar heb ik gekozen voor een meer divers werkleven en ben ik, naast intern begeleider op de grootste MBO school van Rotterdam, eigenaar van een supschool (Sol Sup Club), werk ik als zzp-er voor en op evenementen en geef ik meer zeer veel plezier kinderyoga bij Yogaseads. Kinderyoga is voor mij dé manier om op een positieve, opbouwende, verstevigende manier met kinderen te werken. Kinderen moeten tegenwoordig veel. Bij kinderyoga ligt de focus op jezelf zijn en doen waar je je goed bij voelt. Spelenderwijs laat ik kinderen kennismaken met belangrijke en actuele thema’s in het leven als vriendschap, vertrouwen en bijvoorbeeld een feestdag of seizoen. We praten, lachen, doen yogahoudingen, we werken en spelen samen, oefenen onze concentratie en ademhaling en eindigen altijd met een ontspanningsoefening.
Maggie Bijl is an American yoga teacher from Maui, Hawaii. She was first introduced into Bikram Yoga in her late teens just after moving to the islands… After devoting 10 years (on and off) to the ‘torcher chamber’ and feeling stagnant in her practice she discovered the freedom of Vinyasa Yoga. With a history of theatre and dance since youth, Maggie immediately fell in love with the rhythm, movement and self-expression of more flowing styles of yoga.
Maggie is a creative soul and unique spirit. She’s artistic and expressive in her own practice, but teaches with grace and gratitude. She encourages you to listen to your own intuition and to move from your center both on and off the mat. She embraces wavelike spinal movements and individual self-expression in each any every class.
Maggie began her Yoga Teaching career by becoming a certified Prenatal Yoga Instructor as well as a Birth Doula supporting and empowering woman throughout their pregnancies and for the duration of their labor and birth. She has been blessed to have supported many woman on their journey into motherhood and to have welcomed so many babies into this world. Maggie’s Yoga path organically evolved over the years that followed as she studied and trained with many well recognized Yogi’s across the globe.
PETER DE LANGE
Al een jaar of vijftien is Iyengar-Yoga een belangrijk deel van mijn leven.
Na het afronden van de Iyengar-Yogalerarenopleiding ben ik nooit opgehouden over yoga te leren.
Het geleerde breng ik meteen in praktijk in de lessen die ik geef op scholen, bij bedrijven en op het strand. Yoga houdt me scherp en open en dat zie je terug in mijn lessen: die zijn nooit saai!
