About Rolandjan

For over 15 years Rolandjan dived deeply into various Yoga systems, like Anusara, Kundalini, Yin and Iyengar yoga, while also studying and practicing several massage treatments such as ThaiYoga/ assisted Yin massage, Shiatsu on-site massage and Fascia therapy.
As he moved in life he met many profound teachers on his way, each of them able to help him deepen his understanding of yoga and meditation, before finally arriving on the path of Advaita Vedanta, the teachings of non-duality.


Today, Rolandjan both practices and teaches Yoga as a way to move into self inquiry; a means to dive deeply within ourselves and explore who or what we truly are. His invitation is to come to discover our true Self beyond all cultural and personal conditioning, or any limiting belief and idea. To know experientially that you are yourself the timeless source of real peace, joy and true Love.
Rolandjan is also offering one on one sessions called 'guidance into Presence'.

In each session there is room to share what seems to block you from feeling content, joyous and peaceful. With the help of meditation, self inquiry, and simple exercises Rolandjan will assist you in focussing the attention from a limited personal state of mind into our natural state of peaceful presence. Feeling home and happy again within yourself.
 

About Irene

Irene's yoga classes are a fusion of her passions: Yin and/or Vinyasa Yoga, healing and live music. Everything Irene shares comes straight from her heart and is there to help you drop down from the mind into the heart. To remember your true nature. To embrace yourself as you are and as you feel. Her classes are taught in a safe, simple and clear way, so you can completely focus on your inner experience. And when you lay yourself down for Savasana, Irene shares some live mantra music!

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.
