Sido Wijga

Astanga LedMysore ProgramYinYoga Basics

Sido came in contact with yoga in 2008 when Kristin Skotnes Vikjord and Wessel Paternotte started Delight Yoga in Amsterdam and he became acquainted with Astanga Vinyasa Yoga. He soon noticed the positive effect of yoga on his physical and mental condition. Later he explored different yoga styles, such as Hatha and Vinyasa, but his passion lies with Astanga Vinyasa. In 2012 he came in contact with Yin Yoga as taught by José de Groot. Sido found his ideal balance in the combination of the two styles.

After taking his first Vipassana meditation retreat in India (as taught by the late S.N. Goenka) at the end of 2012, Sido decided to follow both Sva-Dharma Teacher Training (‘The Body’ 200hrs. with Katiza Satya, Shirley Woods, Claudia Pradella and Martyn Hoogstra) and Yin Yoga Teacher Training (50hrs. with José de Groot in the linage of Paul Grilley’s anatomy) at Delight Yoga. Later that year in Sweden, he participated in a second Vipassana Retreat. After successfully completing level 1 he also completed level 2 (‘The Heart’ 200hrs.) of the Sva-Dharma Teacher Training in Bali at the end of 2013, guided by Katiza Satya, Kevin Sahaj and Govinda Kai. In 2014 Sido did another Anatomy training (50hrs.) with José de Groot, this time based on the Astanga primary serie. In 2015 Sido finished an intense training (100hrs.) on the full vinyasas of the Astanga primary serie, hand on adjustments and Pranayama sequence as taught by the late Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois with Claudia Pradella. Last May he finished the 500 hours Sva-Dharma training (level 3) with Katiza Satya and Kevin Sahaj in France. This last training (The Mind’) was mainly based on the Buddhist Dzogchen teachings and Advaita tradition.

In addition to yoga and meditation Sido is also interested in Reiki, healing, and Advaita teachings of Sri Mooji. He is very grateful to all the teachers who have transferred their knowledge to him in recent years and he is now eager to share this knowledge with you. Sido is registered with Yoga Alliance.
