My morning routine: I really enjoy slow mornings, and I try to make my schedule so that I will always have a time for my spiritual practice. I will usually get up around 06.00 or 07.00 and do a 30 – 6o minutes yoga + meditation practice, followed by asking the universe what I need to know today and pulling my daily tarot card for answers. Then I’ll prepare a light breakfast and journal while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee
The world needs more of: Passionate and playful people. Dare to get out of your comfort zone – that’s where the magic happens!
I believe in: Life as a teacher, trusting my process, and always following my heart and intuition in everything I do.
Love is: Forgiving, unconditional and strong.
I can't get enough of: Yoga, teaching, all kind of juices and smoothies, yoga mats in beautiful colors, pretty dresses, bookstores, music, singing, art, design, my fantastic and beautiful friends + family, hot coffee, traveling, wandering, being barefoot and grounded, swimming, kitesurfing, early summer mornings, the feeling of sand between my toes, sun in my face, and the gentle touch of salty water when you swim ♥
Yoga is: Peace and happiness and my sanctuary when I feel stressed.
My mantra: “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.”
This year I want to: Inspire everyone to trust their heart and follow their dreams. Life’s too short not to live your passion!
