Delight Yoga Staff - Anouk Neijsen  & Marianne van den Heuvel

Anouk Neijsen & Marianne van den Heuvel

Anouk started her yoga path in 2008. While working in a highly stressful environment as a fashion buyer, she turned to yoga to find peace of mind. After trying several styles of yoga she was first introduced to Astanga yoga in 2010, while on a yoga retreat in Italy. It was love at first sight. This physically challenging practice combined with a strong focus on the breath gave her a tool to connect with herself in ways she had never experienced before. Soon afterwards she left her job and went to Thailand where she met Paul Dallaghan who introduced her to the mysore style of practice and to pranayama. Upon return in Amsterdam she started a daily mysore practice with Claudia Pradella and Madina Tanekeyeva at Astanga yoga school Amsterdam. This became the foundation for her life.   Out of a hunger to learn more about yogic philosophy and lifestyle and a desire to deepen her practice she joined the 200 hrs Astanga yoga intensive training with Claudia Pradella and Janneke Verburg in 2012. This training marked the beginning of many changes in her life. She became very interested in detoxing and plant-based nutrition and decided to deepen her knowledge by first studying Holistic nutrition at Civas and later on Raw food cuisine at Matthew Kenney culinary in LA.   In 2012 she was also introduced to Lino Miele with whom she immediately felt a strong connection because of his personal approach, Italian temperament and love for Astanga yoga as it was taught traditionally by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She started following him in his workshops and retreats in Italy and India. To this day he still is her main teacher and a great source of inspiration both for her practice and teaching.   Astanga yoga helps Anouk to daily connect and stay truthful to herself but also to face her fears, challenge herself and open up to the unknown. In her classes these qualities are very important and she wishes to inspire her students in this way to follow their own path.

Anouk Neijsen Health food nutritionist Special for the Delight Spring Detox we asked Anouk to be available for extra advice. Do you have particular issues you want to work with during this detox process? Would you like to integrate additional cleansing practices (like enema’s) in your detox program? Yes? Then Anouk can help you.    About Anouk From an early age Anouk has been very interested in healthy living and eating. When she started to develop a regular Astanga yoga practice her awareness of the influence of food on body and mind grew further. While doing her first teacher training in 2012 she learned more about different philosophies on food and this lead her to experiment with the effects different foods and diets have on her. In the same year she did her first detox during a yoga retreat in Thailand. This was a transformative experience – with impressing effects both body and mind. This made her want to learn more about detoxing. In 2015 she graduated in the ‘Detox coach’ course at the Sonnevelt institute. Nowadays there are many different views on what constitutes a healthy diet. Especially after doing a detox many people want advise on how to continue eating while keeping the feeling of lightness and peace of mind that they experienced while detoxing. Apart from that Anouk wanted to be able to form her own opinion on all the different diets that are being advised. This lead her to do the ‘Health food nutritionist’ course at Civas.   “The most important lesson I have learned is that food has a very strong influence on our health but also that every body is different. It is my passion to help you find out what your body needs to function at its best and make you feel happy and alive!”   Request a personal consultation Anouk via - 25 minutes for €25  - 50 minutes for €50

Delight Yoga Staff - Lisanne Lambert-Stoop

Lisanne Lambert-Stoop

VinyasaPrenatal Yoga

Lisanne’s passie voor yoga begon in een hete Bikram yoga studio in Amsterdam in 2008. De intense lessen waren in eerste instantie een manier om stoom af te blazen van haar stressvolle leven als mode ontwerpster. Al gauw bracht het haar ook spirituele ervaringen die langzaam uitvloeiden in haar leven ‘off the mat’. In 2012 verhuisde ze met haar man naar Azie en ontdekte daar vele andere vormen van yoga waardoor haar liefde voor de ‘practice’ steeds sterker groeide. Ze volbracht haar eerste YTT in 2013 met Yandara in Bali, onder leiding van Christopher Perkins. Toen ze zwanger raakte besloot ze haar yoga studie te verdiepen en volgde een zeer uitgebreide Prenatale Vinyasa YTT in Bali in 2014 met Jennifer More. Lisanne ziet lesgeven vooral als het doorgeven en delen van wat haar is geleerd en wat ze zelf ervaard in haar eigen leven, zowel op als naast de mat. Haar lessen zijn open, eerlijk, sensitief en aanmoedigend. Soms uitdagend, nooit té serieus. Het is haar doel om mensen te helpen de schoonheid te ontdekken van de adem en de beweging, om te helpen energie te brengen tot in de kleine teen, nog even iets verder te reiken en dan uit te dagen om daar zachtheid te vinden. Nu ze weer terug is in Amsterdam is ze enthousiast het yoga landschap van haar geboortestad aan het her-ontdekken; terwijl ze tevens in verwachting is van haar tweede kindje.
