About me:  As a child I was already helping in my parents’ yoga school. Now is the time to start teaching myself. In 2011 I started with Kindercoaching Spelend Wijs, where I mainly focus on communication and contact between parent and child. And especially for expats kids I developed a program to learn Dutch in a playful way. The Parent & Child Yoga is a very nice addition to what I already do. For this I followed the training with Helen Purperhart (

Class Specialty: Parent & Child Yoga is for children from 0 to 4 years. Basically yoga for children is the same as yoga for adults. The difference lies in the approach. It is a combination of yoga and play where pleasure is paramount. There is a lot of reference to the animal world and use is made of yoga games, stories and songs.

In this way young children and their parents enjoy the positive effects of touch, movement, rhythm and relaxation. By combining the various components, the senses are stimulated and body awareness is increased. Parent & Child Yoga is a great way to discover and relax together and to have fun at the same time.
