Hi, I'm Claudia
Hi there! I’m Claudia, Oslo-based yoga teacher and fertility + postpartum coach.
I teach studio classes, as well as private and corporate classes in Oslo and through Zoom, and offer online and face-to-face coaching. I’m the co-founder of Sanga Yoga, the first yoga studio for women in Oslo.
I grew up in the Netherlands and found yoga in Amsterdam, in my early twenties. Yoga wasn't very popular yet, but I fell madly in love. I loved that I felt soft and calm after every class. I loved moving my whole body, I loved those 90 minutes of peace and quiet, and I loved exploring my body and mind in a totally different way. To me, yoga is still that. It's what gives me both energy and stillness, it gives me confidence and pride, it helps me ease anxiety and feel at home in my body. It helps me be me.
I left my home country in 2011 to travel the world – a journey that took me and my husband to the highest mountains and most beautiful beaches, hectic cities and quiet little villages, and amazing yoga teachers.
After a year on the road we moved to Oslo, Norway, where I now mainly teach women, especially mother baby yoga, with our classes at Sanga Yoga. Sanga Yoga is Oslo yoga sanctuary for women, which I founded together with my yoga partner Theresa.
I’m also a holistic health coach, helping women on their journeys toward fertility and during their postpartum period.
When I work with women, we focus on their uniqueness, and together we find the right approach. I specialize in hormonal health, fertility and body acceptance, and I'm passionate about supporting mothers and women on their way to becoming mothers.
