She wants every woman to experience giving birth in the most positive (empowering) way, Not only providing the baby with  the best possible start, but also caring for and supporting the mother throughout.

Anne  Olsthoorn

After that she said goodbye to 9-to-5 life and started her adventure as a yoga teacher. She lives in The Hague and works in Delft, Leiden and The Hague. Besides teaching she also does back office work at Womanhood Studio (so she still gets to nerd out).

During her yoga classes you are invited to bring out what you are searching for: balance, strength, stamina, relaxation, and perhaps enhanced spirituality. It is your practice; so you decide. The focus of each class is to move with respect towards your own body. Breath is Boss.

Biddy Messchaert

“The first time I taught a yoga class was during my Yoga Teacher Training. I knew it right away: this is what I want, this is what I am meant to do. My goal is to have everyone step off the mat feeling good. Not just about the class they just took, but about themselves. I am an RYT200 trained teacher in Flow Yoga with Critical Alignment elements. In flow (Vinyasa) Yoga one pose fluently flows in to the next. Everything is connected! We connect the breath to the movement, the movement to our thoughts. I teach at different locations in Delft and The Hague / Scheveningen.

The classes I teach at Womanhood Studio are Slow flow classes. We move consciously and take time to feel what you and your body need at that moment. I also teach a Yoga for Beginners Workshop once a month. Besides group classes you can also book private classes with me, allowing us time to focus on any specific questions you may have. Apart from teaching yoga I work behind the scenes and I open the doors of the Studio every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon so you can come in, take a look and learn more about us” Feel free to drop by!

Biddy teaches in Dutch and English.

Maggie Bijl

“My teaching style is rooted in the tradition of Vinyasa Yoga. My classes are infused with non-linear movements and a ‘flow’ with strong emphasis on core connection, self-inquiry and intention. Moving mindfully from one pose to another with breath and body awareness; you’ll go on a journey of movement & meditation. My goal as an instructor is to inspire you both on and off the mat. Yoga is a mental and physical journey and can be challenging one. Patience and compassion are required. My classes connect the mind, the body and the spirit. The classes I teach are suitable for all levels of practitioners, from beginner to advanced.”
Maggie began her journey as a yoga student in 2000 while living in Maui, Hawaii. As her practice continued throughout the 15 years living on island, she became a Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga teacher at Blooma (www.blooma.com). As well as Birth Doula (DONA International training & JJ Doula, Netherlands) and has completed a Core Strength Vinyasa certification (USA) as well as her 200-hour level yoga teacher certification at Yoga Moves (Netherlands).
Maggie’s teaching style is unique and creative. She uses her background in theatre and dance to enrich the experience as well as infuses each class with love, light and laughter.

Maggie is a certified, trained and experienced in: Prenatal Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Birth Doula.

Yasmae Omar

Namaste! I’m a physical therapist and I teach Partner Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga. I live in Delft, am married to my Egyptian other half and together we have a baby boy. I became a RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) since 2013 in Shanghai but after that I really wanted to study in India as well. So I did! In 2015 in Kerala. Together with my husband I teach Partner Yoga since 2017. This is something we love to do and it’s really our time to connect together because we are so different!

During my classes we focus on our breath, as your breath could move you easily trough the class as well as your life. I would say I incorporate mindfulness a lot in my classes as well as the physical aspects and benefits of a pose because of my interest in yoga as a physiotherapist. I also love to support you if you are open for that. I just can’t stay long on my own mat!

Hope to see you soon!

„I am an Austrian happily living in Scheveningen close to the beach with my lovely and ever lively family. I believe that yoga can support you in every aspect of your daily life and yes, indeed, make your body, mind and soul HAPPY! Because it asks us to stop, listen and feed ourselves with what we need most in the Now.

In my classes I want to encourage kids and adults alike and empower them to become healthy and happy with their own body and spirit. And there‘s something in for everyone: From beginners to advanced practitioners, from toddlers to seniors.

I invite you to dip your feet into the water, to listen to the waves, your own breath, and who knows, jump in with a huge smile and take a dive together.“

Eva is trained in Vinyasa and Yin Yoga aswell as Kids Yoga. In her classes she also shares her passion and knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
