Hello dear you, I'm here to help you slow down and tune into that magical feminine energy.
I'm a yoga teacher/guide and women's coach, specialized in therapeutic feminine yoga for transitional periods such as fertility, pregnancy and postpartum. I am a yoga nidrā guide, and teacher of teachers, facilitators and space holders.
Originally from the Netherlands, Claudia now lives in Oslo, Norway, with her husband, son (6) and daughter (2).
“Your class gave me the self insight I have been missing lately. I was able to find the flow into a state of connection and magic. Thank you."
About my work
My work revolves around living and working, and practicing yoga, following the cycles of life, I'm passionate about the practice of rest - especially through yoga nidrā, and I have dedicate a part of my work to supporting women who have birthed through their bellies.
In my work with groups, individuals and in trainings, I combine thousands of hours of studies of yoga and beyond, over ten years of experience and my personal journey through infertility, pregnancy loss and birth trauma.
Although I've been practicing yoga since I was 20 years young, my practice truly started to evolve during my 3-year long fertility journey that eventually led to the arrival of our firstborn in 2017. It was the practice of yoga that supported me after healing from my first c-section, it was the yoga that was there when I went through pregnancy loss, and it was the yoga that helped me prepare for and heal from her second - very empowering - belly birth.
Yoga gives me energy and stillness, and the mat (and my yoga nidrā nest in bed) is where I always come home. My personal practice follows the moon and menstrual cycle, making every practice different from the previous one. Motherhood taught me that a practice doesn’t have to be 2 hours on the mat, but can come in all forms and shapes - just like the feminine does.
I'm educated in traditional Hatha yoga, vinyasa, prenatal, postnatal, fertility, Nidra, yin and restorative yoga, and have completed courses on the pelvic floor, trauma, perinatal mental health, grief and reiki. I'm also a holistic health coach specializing in menstrual cycle health.
