"Discovering Yoga is one of the best things that has happened in my life.
As an independent filmaker and mother of two children my life is very hectic, veryYang.
I used to do a lot of gymnastics to keep in shape, but when I discovered Yoga it felt like coming home.
The deep meditative and relaxing effects of Yoga and specially YinYoga balanced my life so well that I love to share the experience and practice with others."
Hellen started with Pilates 22 years ago now. A few years later she discovered yoga. It was love at first 'practice'.
She followed lots of different classes, workshops en intensives with several teachers. (Sarah Powers, Jill Saterfield and many others).
She has completed two levels of Vinyasa Teacher Training certifications and a YinYoga TT certification with Anat Geiger, Marcel van de Vis-Heil and Johan Noorloos at YogaGarden Amsterdam since then. (RYT 500)
Besides her study at the Yogagarden, Hellen has studied YinYoga with José de Groot and with Paul and Suzee Grilley. (RYT 300)
She is still studying with Paul and Suzee Grilley and finished the Svastha Yoga Program with Dr. Günter Niessen and Dr. Ganesh Mohan (7 modules).
After all these years of practice and more then 1500 hours of training with great Teachers all over the world, I lead my own Yin Teacher Training Program (since 2015), many classes and workshops in and around Amsterdam.
