TEAM

Teachers

Marieke

Marieke

After practicing Hatha Yoga for 10 years I switched to Kundalini in 2011 and I am teaching on a daily basis ever since. My classes always are a deepening experience beyond the comfort zone, to discover new dimensions of ‘being’. Self ­observation is playing a key role throughout the practice towards self­ discovery. Teaching Kundalini Yoga is the love of my life and I am passionate about sharing this technology to inspire people on their spiritual journey. Out of this passion Tim and I founded the online Kundalini Yoga School in 2016.

Tim

Tim

An early fascination for the mind made me choose to study Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. Now I integrate the teachings of Kundalini Yoga with Psychology. and love sharing yogic knowledge via the online Kundalini Yoga School. Besides Kundalini Yoga classes and private consultations with individuals, I also lead journeys & retreats at inspiring locations worldwide. I am grateful guiding students to establish themselves in their hearts, towards a life filled with compassion and kindness.

Lindsey from the United Kingdom

In the last 4 years, I've trained with different Kundalini Master Teachers, each contributing unique insights. Tim & Marieke, in particular, deepened my practice with Meridians, Asana Postures, Medicine Wheel, and a passion for Mantra. Grateful for these lessons, I'm now feel equipped to teach a more relevant Kundalini Yoga class.

Robin from the United States

Your approach adds depth to these ancient teachings, complementing my own teachings in somatic dance. I appreciate the down-to-earth vibe without a guru cult feel. The blend of humor, seriousness, openness, and sovereignty is refreshing. I highly recommend these exceptional teachers and courses!
