Moving around the world

As I am writing this blog, I’m at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam waiting to board a plane to Bangkok, Thailand. It’ll be a 17-hour journey with a short layover in China. A long trip, but it’s ok, because I’m on the road again! This will be my third trip, 4th continent and 10th country since […]

Move with Yoga

It’s a normal day at work for me. I enter a classroom full of enthusiastic 6-8 year old children. Unfortunately, it’s a rainy day so the children have little outside playtime today, which means their energy level is sky-high. So I let them run around for a bit before I ask them to sit down […]

Movement is all around

While South America is bathing in the summer sun, I find myself back in cold and cozy Europe reflecting on a beautiful journey through another part of the moving world. The importance of movement is even more clear to me now that I have visited countries where movement is all around. And to start of […]

Moved by Isabel Marques

The three dancers move beautifully across the stage. Suddenly, I see them coming towards me. I have no idea what will happen, but I know for a fact that I won’t be sitting still for much longer. One of the female dancers grabs my hand and pulls me up from the floor, the other female […]

Moving children in São Paulo

Taking a flight from New York to São Paulo after spending eight hours on a plane from Amsterdam to New York and nine hours waiting around at the airport is well… how shall I put it… an experience. I was exhausted and had lost feeling in both my legs, shoulders and lower back. Luckily my […]

Moving children in Bali

After completing my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Bali, Indonesia, I still had two weeks to explore the many wonders of the beautiful island. In the months before Indonesia, I traveled to first world countries and I had seen inspiring movement projects with children and educators. Wondering if a religious and spiritual place with a […]

On the move again

Hi everyone! I’m on the move again and it feels good! Or as my amazing friends Miriam and Teun would say (or sing): everything is awesome. It took some time (only 7 months, but it feels like years), but it is good to be back on the road again. And this time is different than […]

Moving Forward

My first blog of 2017! Written in Bali, but only just found the time (and better wifi) to post it. Since my last post, I’ve spend 5 weeks in Bali, flew to Ireland to visit my sister and four weeks ago I returned home! I’ve started giving classes again (so happy to see ‘my’ kids!) and I finally have […]

Moving into the New Year

At the end of the year, like many of us, I always like to look back and relive the wonderful and precious moments that occurred during the year. No doubt this year has been a rollercoaster. And even though I still have many stories to share (I’m writing this from Melbourne, Australia and still have […]
