Devotie Academy

Devotie Academy is a personal yoga and coaching programme for self love and happiness. The unique effectiveness lies in the focus on the interplay between body, mind and soul. The guidance programme includes one full year of classes in yoga & meditation, mindset coaching sessions and healing massage.

It is important to take your time for a meaningful change in you way of thinking. Otherwise the result will be superficial or short lived. Nothing is more frustrating than having made an effort to feel lighter for nothing, because you have not come to the root of your imbalance.

When you are willing to work with me for a full year, a durable result comes within reach that you will benefit from for a lifetime. You can apply for Devotie Academy during the whole year, as long as there are spots available.

Components of the programme

Yoga classes

The weekly yoga classes are on Sunday mornings. You can choose (as long as there are spots available) between the class of 10.15 to 11.15 or the class of 11.30 to 12.30.

I am loyal to an authentic form of yoga, as developed in ancient India. The yoga revolves around healing and (self) love. This yoga does not resemble the physical styles of yoga. You do not have to have experience with yoga nor do you need a flexible body. Come as you are!



As a Devotie Academy participant, you follow five yoga and meditation workshops throughout your year. The workshops take four hours and take place on Saturdays between 14.00 and 18.00.

In the workshops we can come to the root of the thoughts that disturb your peace and make them dissolve, freeing you of them. On the agenda for the workshops are mind inquiry and meditation, training of the mind, healing of emotions and deepening the yoga postures.

Mindset coaching sessions

The standard frequency of the mindset coaching sessions are once every two months. The conversations are scheduled after the yoga classes on Sundays, so from 12.30 to 13.00.

The inquiry of your thinking mind as taught in yoga, continues in our one-on-one mindset coaching sessions. Here I will give you practical tools to make your world lighter and to release unwanted feelings or patterns.

Healing massage

Three massages are included in the Devotie Academy programme, on Sundays from 09.00 to 10.00. Afterwards you hop on your mat for your weekly yoga class.

The massages are relaxing and they have a healing and purifying effect. If you would like to remain fully dressed, this is not a problem, the massage can easily be done while you are wearing a thin layer of clothing.

There are no shortcuts to happiness!

What others say about me

This results in concrete changes, such as a removal of back pain, but also in broader transformations. Your attitude to life, as well as your relationship with yourself and others, becomes lighter and more joyous. Devotie Academy will always have the strongest effect in the areas you need it most.
I always make sure that the programme is right for your situation, also if your particular complaint is not listed in the examples. Personal tuning and individual guidance are at the heart of Devotie Academy.
