My name is Ilse, and I'm a certified Hatha/Vinyasa and Yin yoga teacher who grew up in the Netherlands. Currently living between Bali and Nepal, where I stay in Ubud and Kathamandu, some of the cultural spiritual centers of Asia. Cultivating more knowledge about spirituality, plants and herbs, Yoga and all sorts of healing in general. This to share with everyone else!
For me it began 9 years ago; a busy social life and a fast paced job in the fashion industry had me living a life out of balance. I longed for a more meaningful existence, sure I was living my dream, working with high end labels and exploring the fruits of the industry however I longed for a deeper sense of depth in my life- whatever that meant.
As each class unfolded I began to realize the time spent on my mat offered me a place to keep grounded, focused, accountable aware and appreciative of the smallest moments. The more in tune I became with my body- the more harmonious my life became.
Thus prompting an internal calling to dive as deep into this profound practice as possible- a calling that led me to the spiritual center of the world- and the birth place of yoga- Incredible India. Soon I decided to quit my job at Prada, sold all of my designer clothes, bags and shoes even my furniture found new owners. Packed my suitcase with flip flops and yoga pants, and booked a one way ticket and traveled.
I desired to expand and share my knowledge with strangers and loved ones alike about the transformation evolution yoga offered me; so, deep in the majestic, mystical Himalayas I became a certified Yoga teacher.
Yoga is more than just a routine, it is an intimate, expansive spiritual practice- which I feel honored, blessed and deeply grateful to share across the world from India to Malaysia, Europe and Bali.
Now I'm at this beautiful point in my life where I'm given a chance to share the knowledge I have gained over the years and guide people in finding their balance and getting back on track with their life.
