A children’s workshop yoga, that’s where it all started. At the age of 13 Ellemiek attended a yogaclass where she did her first asana’s and learned the colors of the seven chakras. Even though she didn’t realize what she was actually doing at the moment she knew she found a feeling of peace and joy.

Coming from a spiritual background, with her mother being a Tai Chi instructor and her stepfather a Reiki master, yoga was quite the logical path to follow. But it took a while for her to discover this.

Born in South-Korea, raised in Amsterdam. From a young age she felt a sense of wonder about the human experience in this curious place called “earth”. She studied social sciences and travelled the globe, but it was wisdom in yoga that helped her to make sense of life.

Laura took her first yoga class ever at Delight and this changed her whole experience with yoga and therefore with herself. “Wow this is challenging, it gives me joy and it’s so satisfying!” is what she thought.

Delight Yoga Staff - Maxime Nelissen

Maxime Nelissen

Maxime came in contact with yoga many years ago by seeing her mother practice even before the dogs would open their sleepy eyes. Silly, she thought, getting up earlier voluntarily to do funny poses. Yoga was definitely not love at first sight.

Delight Yoga Staff - Ratna Adam

Ratna Adam

Deadlines halen, lange dagen maken en steeds weer met nieuwe ideeën komen – hoe blij Ratna ook was met haar uitdagende baan als marketing manager, ze realiseerde zich ook dat ze er uiteindelijk niet gelukkig van zou worden. Om haar energie een boost te geven en rust te vinden begon ze met het beoefenen van yoga.

Delight Yoga Staff - Roos Ter Hark

Roos Ter Hark

Roos started practicing Yoga at Delight Yoga in 2018. And it has almost been a daily part of her life ever since. In the beginning, she mostly practised Astanga Led, but at the moment Roos is mostly focused on Hatha and Vinyasa.

Delight Yoga Staff - Royce Benda

Royce Benda

Who am I? At a young age Royce knew his heart wish was to serve all beings. Struggling with how to implement this in every day life, he found that to truly help others, he first needed to listen to his own heart. Through experience Royce learned how easy it is to outrun yourself and ended up in a burnout in 2010.

Delight Yoga Staff - Sophie Peeters

Sophie Peeters

After working in the creative field for some years, Sophie felt it was time for something else. She booked a ticket to Portugal to learn more about ‘living with less’. After one year spending most of her time watching the process of nature, practising yoga and meditation, she realised this was something to hold on to. Delight Yoga could not cross her path at a better time when she returned back to the city. ‘Everything we are looking for is already there or coming our way, we just need to trust and keep our eyes open’.

Delight Yoga Staff - Stephanie de Rooij

Stephanie de Rooij

Stephanie began her exploration with yoga in 2004, aged 14. Achieving high goals on a young age, she mainly learned how to connect with the outer world that left her feeling burnt-out. Yoga showed her how to live life that feels good on the inside.
