I started Breathwork in 2014, being burnt-out and hospitalised. Discovering how my breath showed me how to stay very close to myself and my needs. How to stop living my life according to others. Before, I had no clue what to do in an overstressed situation; or about distressing thoughts; in a job I didn’t like; and coping with daily routines were I seemed to let myself be taken over.
Now, my breath and my body are my compass: How do I actually feel? How do I interact clearly? How do I take care of myself? What relaxes me? How do I follow my creative flow? How do I tune to my heart and be free?
I attended the Amsterdam Steiner School and completed my Master of Arts at the University of Amsterdam. I have worked at the Dutch Cancer Society for 10 years. I started my inquiry into Bodywork with yoga and meditation, being 17 years old. As a yoga teacher (>2005), I was initially inspired by Jivamukti Yoga. Other Bodywork-trainings followed, e.g. somatic experience, Yin Yoga and Kundalini Yoga. I have a Croatian / Dutch background. My partner and I raise our two teenagers.
My journey strongly evolved since I became a certified Transformational Breath® Facilitator at the Transformational Breath® Foundation. Exploring the wisdom of my breath and body ever since. Currently I’m in a 3 years body-centered-psychotherapy training at Bambu. Including Systemic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and Bioenergetic Therapy.
I use cognitive methods and spiritual wisdom. My training and sources of inspiration in order of appearance are: Gösta van Dam, Patrick Vermeulen, Gert van Leeuwen, S.N. Goenka, David Lurey, Leo Peppas, Donna Farhi, Anil Sethi, Elena Brower, Mooji, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sarah Powers, Paul Grilley, José de Haan, Yogi Bhajan, Guru Nanak, Judith Kravitz, Byron Katie, Michael Brown, Dan Brulé, Eugenia Altamira, Anodea Judith, Peter Levine, Tony Robbins, Mark&Magali Peysha, Ien van der Pol, Eline Brikhof, Eddy Stap, Alexander Lowen, Ron Kurtz, Roos-Veerle Krijnen, Marshall Rosenberg, Piet Weisfelt and many others.
