I was born in Brussels and I grew up on the countryside of Belgium.
I discovered yoga back in 2015,
a practice that made me curious.
- What makes yoga so special?
What do people talk about?
Is yoga the 'key' to a happy life? -
I decided to practice, raw.
I made the decision and started with basic yoga asana or postures.
Little did I know that yoga was more than asanas.
I went to classes here and there,
read books and watched documentaries about yoga (gurus).
My practice started to be consistant.
I later deepened my knowledge, which is imminent if you start growing and deepening yourself into yoga.
the journey of the self,
through the self,
to the self.”
- The Bhagavad Gita.
I changed my diet and went full on vegetarian, I became more disciplined about my daily routines and mindful about my thoughts and choices. I continued reading and expanding my knowledge. It all felt so natural. Something was pushing me towards a 'yogic' lifestyle, meaning that I applied the Limbs of yoga into my life.
I teach yoga but I'm a forever student.
- It all connects! -
That's exactly what yoga means: 'to unite'. It's important to be mindful and present in class,
but if this doesn't translate off the mat and connects into what we do in our day-to-day lives,
we will never feel the real benefits of yoga.
Working on that Tittibhasana back in 2019
I felt inspired to move on, to change and evolve. The more I followed
that path, the clearer it became.
It's my calling and it was my curiosity that took me to where I am now.
In 2019 I decided to travel to India
to complete a yoga teacher training
That experience changed my life completely. It opened my eyes.
Only then did I truly learn about what yoga really was.
Every minute of the day was yoga.
After completing my transformative teacher training, I travelled back and practiced more until I felt ready to teach and share my knowledge.
Teaching and sharing what I've learned is something I take at heart. Sharing traditional and authentic yoga. That's why I went to India and did my teacher training with Indian, dedicated teachers who were raised with yoga. That was very important to me.
Now, I teach quality yoga classes a little bit everywhere.
I am very dedicated and devoted to a yogic lifestyle. It's an honor for me to transmit this beautiful art of living.
See you on the mat, friends!

THE MAGIC OF 'SURYA'
The word 'Surya' means 'Sun' in Sanskrit, source of warmth and light.
It represents the visible form of
the divine, one that you can see everyday.
The masculine energy,
the bringer of light and life.
Personally I always LOVED early mornings, watching the sunrise. Surya brings me happiness and makes everything feel light and joyful.
Hot sunny days always reminds me of Portugal.
Love me a good old Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation) to start my day or my practice.
Surya also means 'smile' in Portuguese. It's a different way of writing but same pronounciation.

YOGA ON AND OFF THE MAT
Yoga is more than just asana or postures, it's a dedicated way of life. Practicing yoga is living mindfully,
it's living in a state of abundance, observation, acceptance, ... .
Along the way I show you different yoga techinques and explain about pranayama, the importance of
a karma free diet, compassion, meditation, reflection, banddhas, doshas, Shat Kriyas, ... .
The deeper we dive into yoga, the more it will all make sense.
This is my DHARMA, my purpose.
To share and show you the way through yoga.
Unifying the flexibility of the body, mind, energy and emotions.
To create your new self,
shed your old skin and
become the pure, authentic you.
I'm living my life with a passion.
We're not looking or searching for happiness or love.
We already are the embodiment of happiness and love.
It's our natural state.
We're just distracted and
have been conditioned by society.
This is why we do yoga,
following a yogic lifestyle brings you back to who you really are.
"Meditation means dissolving the invisible walls
that unawareness has built"
