What is yoga therapy?

Yoga therapy is the application of yoga practice for therapeutic purposes and to prevent health issues. Yoga in itself was originally developed as a contemplative practice with the aim of self-realization, not as a treatment approach. However, all aspects of yoga contribute to a healthy lifestyle and healthy psychological functioning. Growing evidence shows that yoga is effective in preventing and curing a range of physical and mental problems. Therefore, integrating yoga with modern medicine is highly beneficial as a clinical intervention.

“Personally, I got in touch with yoga as a teenager. It started as a way of physical movement that helped me to connect with my own body, with more kindness and awareness than I used to do. On my way, I noticed that yoga also had a deepening effect at the mental level. I learned even more about yoga philosophy when I traveled in India and Nepal – a whole new world opened up for me. Yoga became more and more intertwined with my life. It is a lifestyle that helps me to keep learning every day.

As a yoga teacher and psychologist, I am further specializing in yoga therapy. Yoga therapy is a multi-faceted approach to health and wellbeing. I am very passionate about this field, integrating different perspectives from ancient yoga philosophy and modern science. 

I studied clinical and neuropsychology at Utrecht University, and completed my yoga teacher training at Arhanta Yoga in India. I started my career doing research into brain-based therapeutic techniques for mental health, but soon discovered my heart lies in working with the people themselves. I then continued my path as a psychologist in mental health care, where I am still working with a broad range of psychological problems. In addition, I am teaching regular yoga classes and private yoga therapy sessions. My expertise lies in yoga therapy for mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and trauma-related issues.”
