About Lidewij

At a very young age, Lidewij was introduced to yoga and meditation through her mother. But it wasn't until graduating from university that she started to practice regularly. After a few years of practicing Iyengar Yoga, she fell in love with the Astanga Yoga practice. She traveled through and studied yoga in India, Thailand, and Bali, and upon her return, she naturally started to share her love for yoga with others. She studied with many teachers but is mainly influenced by her teacher Petri Raïsanen, whom she continues to practice with and assists on a regular basis.

 

Her daily practice is a journey to her true self with her mat as her mirror, helping her to reflect and find peace and stillness within. She teaches with softness, care, and personal attention and hopes to inspire others to take their yoga practices with them off the mat and live a conscious and loving life.

 

After becoming a mother, Lidewij got fascinated by Family Constellations and Systemic work and now also offers Family Constellation sessions and Rebozo Closing Ceremonies

 

About Marilou

Born in the Philippines, Marilou came to the Netherlands in her teens. She feels blessed with the best  of both worlds: East and West. Ever since she came in contact with yoga she has developed a passion for Ashtanga Yoga and Pranayama, which she applies both in her classes and her everyday life. Besides her daily practice she studies regularly to deepen her knowledge and understanding of yoga philosophy, chanting and meditation. She feels greatly indebted to her inspiring teachers: Katiza Satya, Paul Dallaghan and Pranayama Master Sri O.P. Tiwariji, head of the Kaivalyadham Research Institute near Mumbai, India.

 

With love and passion, Marilou offers a variety of yoga classes: Ashtanga Led, Mysore and Primary Series. She also teaches Pranayama workshops and classes at Yoga Moves and other yoga studios. Her classes are fun and inspirational, allowing space for growth both on and off the mat.

 

Marilou sees yoga as a quest for spirituality and awareness. It not only provides a stable basis for everyday life, but a lot of fun too. She loves inspiring her students with her passion.

 

“Pranayama is the basis of my day. My daily practice gives me access to my soul and inner life. I feel one with my body, and experience a state of Bliss. It is the perfect foundation for my Ashtanga practice.”
