Since I was young, the human potential and the mystic of life both fascinated me. My parents were a great source of inspiration. I started doing yoga and meditation techniques when I was 9yrs old. During my teenage years I travelled a lot and experienced many different spiritual rituals from all over the world.
When I was 13 years old, I was in touch with Dr. Deepak Chopra. At the Chopra center in America, I became a yoga instructor: teaching meditation and learning Ayurveda. Later I became the co-organizer for many Chopra events in the Netherlands.
My big passion for music resulted in studying singing and anthroposophical music-therapy. After that I was on stage and television as a singer for 12 years.
From 2015, I built my Heart to Heart yoga center in the middle of the Netherlands. Now I work together with my team of about 15 teachers and therapists – all in the field of yoga, meditation and massage/bodywork.
In 2014 I published my own book ‘Soul-Mirror’ as a dedication to ‘the eyes which are the mirror of the soul’.
In 2016, a dream came true when Heart House Bussum opened its doors. It is a gathering building with more than 15 independent practices in the field of health, personal development and wellbeing. My Heart to Heart Yoga center is now located here with 4 beautiful multifunctional halls and 3 session rooms that can also to be rented out.
I regularly give in-company presentations, lectures and workshops for: Rituals, Rabobank, ING, Akzo Nobel, Warner Brother music, Dessault Systems and many others.
For the last 30 years, I have been an independent entrepreneur in wellbeing.
My speciality is personal leadership, mindful living and working, communication, vitality, yoga-meditation and life-style management.
