Hedi de Vree

Hedi de Vree (1976, Stavanger Norway) has vivid childhood memories of watching her girlfriends drop to the floor in splits and do cartwheels, while she wondered why her own body wouldn’t move in that easy way.

In 2008 as she stood in her first yoga class she was reminded of those childhood feelings: she felt stiff and fearful and utterly inadequate. But rather than magnify those feelings, yoga gave her tools to deal with her insecurities – and she found that flexibility and fear could be worked on. Since then Hedi has found many valuable lessons in yoga. In 2015 she published a memoire on her yoga journey (Blijven ademhalen) with the hope she could inspire others to find their way to happier healthier lives.

Hedi completed her first teacher training at the Ashtanga Yoga Academy in Rotterdam, under the guidance of Manju Jois, in 2014. Since then she has completed the Advanced Studies program at Delight Yoga under the guidance of Katiza Satya and Kevin Sahaj and has participated in workshops and courses on many styles and practices ranging frrom Ayurvedic studies to Pranayam and Yin. She is a student of Sarah Powers at the Insight Yoga Institute where she studies the integration of Buddhist practices, spiritual psychology and yoga. Hedi is fully dedicated to the yoga path, both as a student and as a teacher and her practice is deeply inspired by buddhism and meditation practices.

Her goal as a teacher is to create space for yogis of all body types, walks of life, and backgrounds and all levels of practice, to experience the true message of yoga and find union of mind, body and spirit, and presence in the here and now. She believes that no matter what you are dealing with, there are answers for you in yoga.
