At a very young age, Lidewij was introduced to yoga and meditation through her mother. But it wasn't until graduating from university that she started to practice regularly. After a few years of practicing Iyengar Yoga, she fell in love with the Astanga Yoga practice. She traveled through and studied yoga in India, Thailand, and Bali, and upon her return, she naturally started to share her love for yoga with others. She studied with many teachers but is mainly influenced by her teacher Petri Raïsanen, whom she continues to practice with and assists on a regular basis.
Her daily practice is a journey to her true self with her mat as her mirror, helping her to reflect and find peace and stillness within. She teaches with softness, care, and personal attention and hopes to inspire others to take their yoga practices with them off the mat and live a conscious and loving life.
After becoming a mother, Lidewij got fascinated by Family Constellations and Systemic work and now also offers Family Constellation sessions, Postpartum Care, Rebozo Closing Ceremonies and she works as a doula. www.lidewijseverins.com
