Meet the people behind Delight Yoga

Delight Yoga Staff - Alixe van Ogtrop

Alixe van Ogtrop

Alixe always knew she wanted to change the world. Starting in corporate life she discovered that the real change can only be made when the change is made within.    After a PTSD Alixe went on her own healing journey, when reconnecting with her True Self and coming back home (within) she could not, not start to guide other people back to their own Inner Being.    After having done energetic and shamanic healing trainings and a deep dive into various healing traditions she has also started a more science based psychotherapy education focused on trauma, depression and burnout; Human Givens. In this way she can bridge the scientific mechanisms of the brain with the more intuitive and energetic work. Besides being the bridge between these healing/coaching services she is also the bridge between the business and holistic world.   Alixe is guiding people by one on one sessions, by holding women circles, full moon ceremonies and by offering 10 week intensive programs to dive deep in.

Dolores Höppener

What brought you to Delight? “Awareness ;-). Haha, ironically, I think it was the practice of yoga that brought me to Delight (the light ;)). At a certain moment, I didn't want to (almost couldn't) put my effort in something that - to me - was not benefiting the world. Just a few days after this strong feeling, I bumped into Maarten. From the first moment, it felt good to start working together. I joined the team by working for Delight Agency from there I grew with the organisation.

Jasper Brandsen

The study Industrial Design which had brought Jasper in 2008 to Delft, failed to give him the satisfaction he was looking for. In 2013 Zen Meditation made him return to the trail of what would bring him much closer to himself. It was the introduction to yoga not long after, that everything fell into place.

She worked in the corporate world for several years and decided last year to say goodbye to her job and follow her heart: Explore the world and go traveling for half a year throughout Africa and Central-America.
