About Irene Sportel

After having finished her Medical degree, Irene (1985) worked as a doctor for a couple of years. As she felt she was bumping into the boundaries of Western Medicine, Irene quit job in 2013 and traveled to Byron Bay Australia for a Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with Rachel Zinman. She met herself on a deeper level and re-discovered her passions: healing and music!  Back in Amsterdam she started working as a yoga teacher. In 2015 she did a Yin Teacher Training with Jose de Groot and started teaching Yin Yoga with great enthusiasm. Through Jose Antonio Manchado she learned to practice Tibetan Energetic Healing (Shin-do) in 2014, in which she found the depth and simplicity she was looking for in healing. In private sessions, she now helps others to find and heal the emotional cause of disease. Irene also organises mantra concerts, mantra singing circles, yoga and music retreats and Yin in Concert workshops.
