Ingrid has been practicing Yoga since 1998, when she took her very first Astanga Yoga class in London. This class made a deep impression on her and it became the starting point of an ongoing practice and study on the path of Yoga. Curious and interested in understanding the deeper meaning behind Yoga and the 8 limbed path, she studied Raja Yoga for 4 years including asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy.
Over the course of years, she explored and practiced various forms of asana like Hatha, Bikram and Kundalini. Eventually, fascinated by the depth and transformative power created by combining breath and movement in a daily self practice, she found her personal asana practice in Astanga Yoga.
In 2011 she completed her teacher training with Paul Dallaghan. Additionally, she completed the Primary and Advanced teacher Training with David Swenson and practiced and studied intensively with Petri Raisanen. Ingrid is very excited to be able to share her enthusiasm and love for the Astanga practice and path based on all she has learned and experienced over the years.
Also, Ingrid has been practicing and studying Pranayama for many years and goes to India every year in order to deepen her studies with her teacher Sri OP TiwariJi. Aside from guiding Yoga classes, Ingrid works as a (Shiatsu and Thai) Massage Therapist in Amsterdam.
