“Teaching yoga is my passion. It makes me happy. I love seeing my students with a happy face and sweating, yet peaceful after the yoga session. Teaching yoga is also helping me to have better awareness of what’s is going on around me and what’s is going on in my own mind. This enhanced awareness improves every aspect of my life and I use yoga to help me going through the obstacles in my life. I just love to share what I’ve learned, and contribute to improving the lives of others.”

Nancy Huettig RYT 200

Nancy’s life changing journey started as she walked away from her corporate job to find her heart’s desire. She followed her desire- travelling guided her through healing from her burn-out and she found her new inspiration for her life. Yoga, Reiki and Meditation in combination with the nature and the holistic Ayurvedic system of self-healing helped Nancy to create the right balance, mindfulness and peace in her body, mind and soul to reach her purpose in life with love, compassion and consciousness. Nancy’s life transformed into more happiness, better health and observation regarding her body and deeper understanding and connection to herself she felt had been lacking for longtime.

Cornelis Dekker RYT 200

Cornelis Dekker

Cornelis found the Asana practice at the age of twenty one. After a handful of years practicing traditional Hatha, the call of the world drew him to develop a more pragmatic lifestyle. A solid college degree, a career in film making, modeling, and running a lucrative artisan workshop called, Tin Can Customs, eventually all helped pave the way back to himself. While slipping in and out of a steady meditation practice, Yoga gradually eased its way back into his life. His first teacher training was done with only the intention of teaching his mother. However, after a long travel throughout India, he felt called to share his experience and now teaches a mix of grounded Hatha Yoga, playful Vinyasa sequencing, and an accompaniment of philosophy, methodology and Nidra. With a compassionate character and an open heart, you’ll find the space he holds to be a safe one.
