More than 20 years of experience in the field of yoga and relaxation with harmonization of subtle energies. After 4 years of training in Hatha Yoga, she was mainly interested in Egyptian Yoga taught by Yogi Babacar Khane (International Yoga Institute). She is pursuing continuing education with this Master. She was introduced to Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) by Christiane Brandt, founder of Yogashram. She attended Mindfulness seminars, led by a great Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. The effects of the practice that she offers are concretized by improvements in the posture of the back, the respiratory range, the good circulation of energies in the physical and mental bodies which bring the practitioner to a state of general well-being.
As a trained relaxation coach, I offer group classes and private lessons in Brussels since 2016. Focuses of my work are Autogenic Training and Progressive Muscle Relaxation, whereby I also use breathing work as well as meditation and mindfulness exercises in my courses.
It is important for me to also provide background information on stress and relaxation and to give tips for everyday use. As a budding Qigong teacher, I supplement my lessons with elements of Chinese energy theory.
