Reinier has a hospitality management degree from The Netherlands. He has consulted on numerous wine programs and specializes in food and wine pairings. Reinier discovered his yoga practice six years ago, when he walked into Haute Yoga Queen Anne in Seattle, Washington. Originally from Amsterdam, he became an avid yogi while exploring the musical influences on the body and mind during yoga practices. Moving forward, Reinier became a resident DJ at Haute Yoga Queen Anne and now he brings his distinct DJ talents as DJ Drishti to yoga studios and music festivals throughout the United States.
Emily exudes a grounded and sweet aura everywhere she goes. She believes that honoring each of our yin & yang, dark & light, inner & outer, and lunar & solar qualities create the balance that we are searching for. Her belief is that yoga has amazing ways of bringing feelings, discomfort and authenticity to the surface. By acknowledging what rises, students can begin to form their own joy. Every person’s yoga is about something different, however through it, we all seem to be uncovered to our true self and allow ourselves to just be.

I call Reinier the International Man of Mystery. He has had so many worldly experiences that you will easily see this in him from the moment you meet him. Because Reinier is such a well-traveled man, he offers and shares his experience with others in such a dynamic way. He has an undeniable talent for food and wine. Some of the best meals of my life have been prepared by him. He will always bring a party through his music, DJ-ing epic sets. His sweet spirit and funny nature cater to all personalities. Reinier is not only a yoga student but also a good friend of mine that has expanded over the years. We are now leading yoga retreats together. It's an unforgettable experience.
