Hi, I’m Shimi, a certified yoga instructor based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
For me, practicing yoga is about awareness and acceptance. I believe that yoga helps quiet down the mind and when the head is less busy, we can start recognizing what the body is trying to tell us and start learning how to listen to ourselves.
A nine-to-five job that requires us to sit in front of a computer screen encourages a busy mind in a still body. With an MSc in human resource management and a professional background in health-care research, I understand how important it is to counteract this state. The practice of yoga offers just that: move your body and slow down your mind.
After practicing yoga and experiencing its benefits for many years, I travelled to Rishikesh, India to follow a yoga teacher’s training and was certified as a Vinyasa and Hatha yoga teacher. In my lessons I focus on the needs of the students, and tailor lessons to target muscle-groups and areas in the body which require more attention in that moment.
