Life line
At the age of 10-12 years I read the 3 books: “the power in yourself”rdquo;, “visualisation/positive thinking” and “not tomorrow but now”. Writer: Dyer. These books coloured my vision on life

I start working in fashion. I travelled for my work around the world for 12 years as a buyer/buying manager for clothing because. This profession gave me the opportunity to meet different people and their culture. I read a lot about different cultures ( Taoism, Hinduism, Zen Buddhism, Communism, Koran/Islam) and I did yoga in the most stressful periods of my life to stay more in balance at a yoga centre in Amsterdam

I had my own business/recruitment company to help people find a new job in the retail sector. I discovered that my strength was: increase the awareness of people, so they could make a better decisions and could lead a happier life because of this (less suffering)

I began a 3 years hatha yoga and 2 years meditation training at Osmose Institute – The Hague – Teacher degree.
