WELCOME TO WALKING THE WHEEL

About this training

Join us for a transformational journey in 2025! With this training you will deepen your understanding of Kundalini Yoga and learn to apply teachings of the medicine wheel to your own life. Experience how to use both practices as your medicine to stay in tune with nature, yourself and Source.

You will learn to speak the language of energy as expressed in the techniques of Kundalini Yoga. We will work with postures (asanas), breath-work (pranayama), mudra (seals of energy) and mantra that correspond with the themes and topics that are part of our journey around the sun.

CONTENT OF THE MODULES

UNIVERSAL TEACHINGS

Ancient wisdom for modern times

The wisdom traditions shared with you within the frame of this training do not only consist of the teachings from the yogic traditions, such as the Eightfold Path of Yoga, but incorporate teachings from all corners of the world making this training cross-cultural and universal. We follow the energetic roadmaps handed down to us through time. You will for example be offered the foundations of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and several forms of energy healing, to further your understanding of why yoga works the way it does. 

 

INNER JOURNEY

Power of ceremony

Within this training as we journey through the stages together, we will also explore the power of ritual and ceremony as important allies that support our communion with spirit, marking points of transition and giving depth and meaning to our life experiences. 

 

We empower each stage with ceremonies that allow us to fully integrate the offerings, preparing us to enter into the next phase of our journey. 

 

DISCOVER YOUR MEDICINE

Become your own space keeper

Committing to this training means you will commit to your healing, to your own process, discovering your unique medicine and how to apply it to your daily life. In other words once you have completed the wheel you will have a toolbox filled with knowledge and experience that allows you to be the space keeper of your own growth and transformation.

WORKING WITH THE FOUR DIRECTIONS

Journey around the sun

The training is presented in four modules that deeply explore all there is to learn and experience linked to the four directions of the medicine wheel. Throughout the year you will create your own healing mandala, your personal medicine wheel. We empower each stage with relevant ceremonies to give depth and meaning to our life experiences. 

 

MODULE 1 - WINTER

Coming home in your body

This module takes place in Winter and we dive deeply within to reconnect to our inner wisdom and dedicate time to Self care, healing and wellbeing.

You will experientially & theoretically understand how to work with Asanas to help restore balance and proper energy flow within the body mind system.⁠

 

MODULE 2 - SPRING

Growing in consciousness

This gathering is held in Spring and we become conscious of deep imprints, allow ourselves to change perspectives and create space for new beginnings.

MODULE 3 - SUMMER

4 - 7 SEPT 2025 (4 DAYS)

Inner strength & purification

This gathering is held in Summer and we bring in a healthy dose of discipline to kindle the flames of the spiritual fire within us for purification and transformation.

MODULE 4 - AUTUMN

20 - 23 NOV 2025 (4 DAYS)

Voice as medicine

This gathering is held in Fall and we release what no longer serves us, liberate our hearts, let our emotions flow so that we may become vessels of a powerful presence working through us. In this last module we focus on how and why Mantras are like powerful formulas or codes that help us to change our inner vibration. You will also learn techniques that open your Voice to be your medicine.

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

I integrate the teachings of Kundalini Yoga with Psychology. An early fascination for the mind made me choose to study Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. Now, I 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.
