Asaf Hacmon

Asaf Hacmon, founder of Iyengar Yogashala Amsterdam, is a dedicated yoga practitioner and a long time mind-body explorer. Since 1998 when he received his first yoga lesson this seed has never stopped growing. During the past 15 years, Asaf visited India 5 times and studied with different teachers in various spiritual disciplines before discovering and falling in love with the beauty and richness of the Iyengar yoga method.

Ever since, he had the fortune of studying worldwide with teachers like Geetaji S. Iyengar and Prashantji S. Iyengar in Pune, India, as well as senior teachers such as Birjoo and Rajvi Mehta (Bombay), Christian Pisano (France) and Rita Keller (Germany) from all of whom he draws great deal of guidance and inspiration.

Teaching style

Asaf brings together physical yoga asana practice with stimulating non-dogmatic philosophy to create a conscious experience of presence and living wisdom in the body and in the heart. His classes are ever changing, infused with warmth and vigor, and although being challenging, never losing site of the deeper side of practice that calls for open, non-judgmental observation.

Following a near death experience in 2010, Asaf experienced an awakening that hasnt stopped unfolding. With a clearer sense of purpose and insight his teachings have evolved in a way that point to the true wholeness that lies within ones own heart consciousness.

Asaf said that it is his observation that unlike our body which one day be less vibrant, our consciousness will forever sparkle with freshness and nowness. While nourishing our bodies with our practice we should always try and cultivate a present moment awareness that is heart-centered rather than mental. One day, this may make all the difference.

Drawn to non-dualistic philosophies such as Buddhism and Tantric Kashmir Shaivism, Asaf believes in all forms of meditation as gateways to living wisdom, equanimity and joy of being. While practicing and teaching he tries to bring light into the ancient bond between asana (physical practice) and dhyana (meditation).

The retreat will take place in Thermen Bussloo Wellness Resort which is one of the most beautiful and exclusive sauna, beauty and wellness resorts in the Netherlands, situated on lovely Bussloo lake (near Apeldoorn in the Veluwe area), in the green IJssel valley, surrounded by woods and meadows on the edge of Lake Bussloo, you can enjoy both serenity and comfort.

I am quite an experienced Iyengar yoga student with two great teachers back in England but I found some really interesting new insights in Asaf's teaching that will stay with me for a long time. He communicates his passion for his subject so well. It's infectious. I came home rejuvenated and ready to take my yoga practice to the next level." website, edited

    "As a total beginner at yoga I can truly say that this retreat was a life changing experience. Not just the yoga (although a very important part of course) but also all the personal insights, the chemistry in the group and the loving care of Asaf & Tanya (and Nina) made this an unforgettable experience in a beautiful setting at Quinta Mimosa! Im so glad I did it all, and I learned so much! Thanks a million!"

    "I just arrived home after a week of rafting, hiking, singing and standing on my head doing all kind of positions which I did not hold for possible anymore. I just made a juice from pepper, apple and kiwi. I had a great time and liked the mix of fun, serious training and meeting new people."

I want to thank you all that in your special way contributed to this wonderful fact!"
