Yoga is the practice of awareness. Of being present with whatever is. Through moving, healing and connecting to the physical body; through conscious breathing and meditation, we connect to our true Self.
"In the practice of yoga, one can emphasize the body, the mind or the self, and hence the effort can never be fruitless"
- T. Krishnamacharya
I teach weekly classes in Ashtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga and Prenatal and Yin Yang classes at Yoga Circle Amsterdam.
In Ashtanga Led classes I guide you through the first part of the primary series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. In this dynamic practice the breath is guiding our movements, gently flowing from one pose into the other.
In Yin Yoga were holding the (ground) positions for 3-5 minutes, to allow the connective tissue (fascia) to stretch. This helps us to create more mobility in the joints, and more importantly a calm and peaceful mind.
Prenatal classes are a great way to relax, move and connect with your baby during pregnancy. In these classes you'll receive tools to help you prepare for labor as well. The classes are a combination of a gentle flow and restorative poses.

"Lidewij holds a safe space and guides you through your own yin journey in a magical way. Besides that yoga circle feels like coming home."
"A true feeling of coming home: the space, the teacher, the practice, the rebound. Magnificently soft."
"Exactly what I was looking for, the perfect balance between some flow and longer restorative poses. The teacher had a nice and calming energy."
In case you prefer to work with me in a one-on-one setting, I am available for private yoga classes. Depending on your preferences and experience, we can tailor the class to your needs and wishes. Please contact me for more information and reservations.
