Get to know the people of Delight Yoga

Sido Wijga & Ingrid Notten

About Sido

In 2008 out of curiosity Sido found his way to a yoga class above his working place, one of the first classes of Kristin Vikjord in Amsterdam (co-founder of Delight Yoga). This is where he discovered Astanga Vinyasa Yoga. He soon noticed the positive effect of yoga on his physical and mental condition. After exploring various yoga systems he sticked with Astanga Vinyasa as his core practice. Until in 2012 he discovered Yin Yoga and found his ideal balance in the combination of the two.

After a 10-day Vipassana retreat in India Sido decided to start a yoga teacher training with Delight in 2013 to deepen his knowledge of yoga. A great fire was ignited to explore into the Self and this was the beginning af many trainings and retreats in the field of meditation, self discovery, healing & energy work and many yoga teacher trainings (850+ hours, all at Delight Yoga).

In 2015 he found his Guru in the Advaita Zen master Mooji. It were his pointing that made him truly look within and explore into the truth of what we are. Through Mooji's teachings he also became interested in other Advaita Vedanta & Zen masters like Sri Ramana Maharshi, H.W.I. Poonja (Papaji), Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj and Alan Watts who all point in the same direction.

Sido believes yoga is not a physical practice that acquires great flexibility but an exploration into the nature of your own being and to completely become one with that. Sido is very grateful for all the teachers who have transferred their wisdom to him over the years. He is happy to share this wisdom and inviting you to explore into your own Self.

Sido is registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500) and often shares some live music at the end of a class.

About Ingrid

Sinds 2001 heeft Ingrid zich actief bezig gehouden met diverse vormen van bewustzijnsgroei en lichaamswerk. Na trainingen op het gebied van deep tissue massage, ontspanningsmassage en ayurvedische massage ontwikkelde zij een speciale interesse in de oosterse massagetherapieën.

Ze voltooide de opleiding tot Shiatsu therapeute aan Academie voor Chinese Geneeswijze Qing Bai in Amsterdam. Daarnaast volgde zij intensieve trainingen op het gebied van Traditionele Thaise Yoga Massage aan het Sunshine Network Center en aan het ITM instituut in Chiang Mai (Thailand) en is ze gecertificeerd in Advanced Therapeutic Thai Massage. Tevens werkt zij als bedrijfsmasseur bij diverse bedrijven in en rond Amsterdam.

Behalve voor Thaise massage heeft Ingrid een grote passie voor yoga. Nadat ze meer dan tien jaar intensief beoefenaar is geweest  van Astanga, Bikram en Kundalini yoga, wijdt ze zich nu met hart en ziel aan de traditie van Astanga Yoga. In 2012 heeft ze de 200hrs Astanga yoga teacher training gevolgd bij Paul Dallaghan in Thailand, waar ze regelmatig terugkeert om haar studie van Astanga Yoga en Pranayama voort te zetten. Ze heeft ook gestudeerd bij Petri Raisanen en hem geassisteerd in Astanga Mysore lessen. Zijn hands-on therapeutische manier van lesgeven heeft Ingrid geïnspireerd om de perfecte combinatie te vinden tussen verbale instructie en hands-on correctie in haar eigen Astanga Yoga lessen.
