Nathalie Fernstra

Nathalie was born and raised in Amsterdam. In 2008, she moved to Spain with her family where they live a remote idyllic spiritual life. She originally has followed a three-year course in Transformational yoga at yoga center Sai Mithra, in the center of Amsterdam. Transformative yoga is a unique combination of Hatha yoga postures, a consciousness of the chakras (energy center), meditation, and relaxation. She has studied the more detailed approach to yoga as developed by D.K.S. Iyengar and learned to teach in the more invigorating yoga styles Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga.

Lyma Decroon

Lyma’s first introduction to yoga was in 1999, and for the past 13 years, she has been interested in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa flow, Anusara yoga, and Zen meditation. She successfully completed the teacher training program through The Integral Yoga Academy and is registered with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) of The Integral Yoga Academy in Yogaville, Virginia, USA. Her love for teaching gives her the gift to create a space where students feel empowered to safely explore the gifts their yoga practice can offer, both on and off the mat.
