Afke Reijenga

VinyasaYin,  Yin Yang

Today, I give away smiles all day!

Afke used to live a rock 'n roll life style, working in art, tv, and film, surrounded by a world that felt increasingly artificial. Her longing for real authenticity grew stronger and stronger.
It was time to transform her life completely. She gave up all previous attachments – her relationship, work, house, glamour life – and started travelling the world humbly. 

Whilst exploring many cultures, peoples, and places, she reconnected to the world around her. She found so much joy in nature, in stillness, in being pure, and Yoga entered naturally, as a daily practice. In her longing for freedom, Yoga became a profound structure; the fertile ground where she could plant her seeds. Seeds that not only would serve her, but also others; let’s celebrate life together in a conscious way! 

In 2011, she came back to Amsterdam to share her love for Yoga. In her Yoga classes, Afke focusses on moving with the breath. The breath is the base. She is a very positive teacher, and her smile is contagious. Do not take life too serious. Take your heart serious. Take time to practice, and to live your life as close to your true self as you can.

Yoga & Ayurveda (50 hrs)

With Victoria (Tory) Hyndman

Yoga & Ayurveda is really impossible to bring apart, they are inseparable brother and sister, they are the union of the Universal Wisdom. The union of these two sciences brings forth a system of healing for physical, mental and spiritual health and happiness. The best way of learning and integrating anything into our life is through direct experience.
