Arno began with meditation and self-healing at the age of 16. By the age of 23 he was fully on the path of personal growth and spirituality. He has trained in Rebirthing, Massage and Meditation and has studied for 17 years with his spiritual guide Osho. Later on Arno went deeper into Shamanism, spending time in the Amazon and in the Andes (amongst other places) to experience and understand the working of Ayahuasca, the ‘magic drink’!
Arno holds teaching certificates in Power Yoga and in Ashtanga VInyasa Yoga (by Yoga Moves), and has followed 2 years of teacher training at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Amsterdam, where he could deepen his experience and understanding of asana technique (yoga poses) and its therapeutic applications.
"My lessons are the natural results of what I’ve learnt in my own life. We learn to bring balance and correct attitude into body and mind. We learn to move from the centre (core) of the body, not just on the mat, but also in our daily lives. Flow on the mat, creates a flow in life as well! In my classes I mix the meditative flow and breath awareness of Vinyasa Yoga, with the detailed asana technique and body awareness of the Iyengar method. Together with a lot of Core postures, I can bring the best out of myself and of my students.”
