I started exploring breath in 2014, being burnt-out and hospitalised. When I started to discover how my breath can show 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 a situation of overwhelm; or about distressing thoughts; in a job I didn’t like; and daily routines where 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 feel life flowing through me?
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. At 17 years old, I started my inquiry into Bodywork with yoga and meditation. 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 teenage daughter and son.
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 ‘begeleiders opleiding’ -guidance training at Bambu. Including Systemic Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and Bioenergetic Therapy.
