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 a certified Yoga teacher in Flow Yoga (RYT200), Restorative Yoga Teacher, Yoga Nidra, Rainbow Kids Yoga. At the moment I am working on my Aerial Yoga and Aerial Yin & Restorative Yoga teacher training (RYT 300).

In my classes we move consciously and take time to feel what you and your body needs at that moment. Everything is connected! We connect the breath to the movement, the movement to our thoughts. Next to teaching yoga I work behind the studio-scenes and I open the doors of the Studio every Wednesday afternoon so you can come in, take a look and learn more about us. Feel free to drop by!”

Join Biddy every Monday at 09.15 am for Slow Flow Yoga. Join her Aerial Yoga classes every Monday at 8.30 pm. and every other Sunday at 09.15 am. Biddy frequently teaches Aerial Yoga Nidra classes. She and Tami take turns teaching the Aerial Yoga Basics workshop. Be on the look out for special workshops!

Eva Kulovits

„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). You can find her at the studio every Wednesday at 9pm. Also check our schedule for the workshops she teaches at our studio!

Melanie de Bruijn

“In 2008 I began my own yoga journey. The yoga supported me in a stressful job and helped me to make the real decision to leave my job, change my life by improving my physical and mental health. After completing my first teachers’ training in 2013, I started teaching. Pretty soon I also became a Yin Yoga and Nada Yoga teacher.

My teaching approach is intuitive and caring. I focus a lot on breathing and alignment, while providing space and attention for every student individually. In my classes I focus a lot on awareness of the senses and bodily sensations. At both individual and group level I guide people on their own journey and share tools and knowledge to empower them to get the best out of themselves.

Besides my classes I also offer Ayurvedic massage in the Womanhood Studio. This massage technique, from India, is a medium strong holistic body massage with oil.  It promotes relaxation, circulation and detoxification of body and mind.”

You can join Melanie every Thursday at 08.00am for Hatha Yoga. You can also book ayurvedic massages with her at the studio and keep an eye out for her Yoga workshops!

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!”

Join Yasmae every Wednesday at 7.30pm for Vinyasa Yoga and keep an eye out for special events!

Dafna Hassin

“I have been doing sports since I can remember myself- gymnastics, athletics, team sports, dancing, water sports and really anything I could think of. As an adult, we dont have enough opportunities to fool around and let the inner child go crazy. I really missed doing it.

A few years ago I discovered aerial acrobatics which filled my life with happiness and excitement.
The aerial hammock class contains a perfect combination of a flexibility , strength, core and balance. Gives the adrenaline and lets you play around while working hard. that is the reason I am so addicted.”

Join Dafna every Thursday at 8.30pm for Aerial Yoga. Also keep an eye out for workshops in the hammocks!

“Ground yourself”

“My mission to connect people with their powerful self. Both through a powerful body and a powerful mind. In my work as work/life coach I love working with people to (re)discover core values and talents and to build their lives around them. I like to use the form of yoga and pilates, walking or other forms of movement to guide this discovery trough the body.

The body is a theme in my life. Trough yoga and pilates as well as dancing, previously a competition style dancer at national level, I focus on the development of the physical part in addition to the mental part. I find it interesting that the body has so much more information to tell us about ourselves than we often realize.

Currently I mainly teach yang yoga (power yoga/vinyasa), pilates and combinations thereof. I’m still at the beginning of my life as a 28-year-old, I look forward to expanding my repertoire. During the classes I’ll let you (re)discover your body in a down to earth way. From the start we will work to strengthen the body with the aim of being more balanced and stronger in your own life.”

Join Esther every Wednesday at 09.15am for Pilates and every Saturday at 09.00am for Yogalates.

Marcella Hartjes

Marcella is a life coach and applied psychologist and provides workshops and one-on-one sessions. Because she was going through a rough period at the age of twenty, she started looking for ways to live a happy and meaningful life. Once she found her own way, she saw more and more people running into the same things as she had done:
– not being comfortable in your own skin, while your life seems perfect from the outside
– always a feeling a lot of stress, in order to live up to all expectations
– love to do a lot of things, but don’t know what you really want to do

That is why, while completing her study Applied Psychology, she decided to start her own coaching practice: Hart Vooruit. She helps others to find their own way, because she knows better than anyone how important it can be to receive help without judment or opinions. Her goal is to help people stay true to themselves and from there on, do what they really want to do.

You can find Marcella at our studio every Monday and Friday afternoon. Book a “Warm Tea & Socks” session with her or stop by to meet her and find out if there is something that she can help you with!
