Hi, My name is Nancy
On the moment I am 26 years old, working as fitness instructor and as personal coach since 2016.
My Yoga journey began around five years ago; I followed some classes and I gave BodyBalance lessons from LessMills.
Because I did gymnastics and dance my whole life, the yoga asanas are not so difficult for me. But after practicing for a year, I realised that yoga is not just a workout. And so I started to deepen my practice by studying the philosophy behind the practice on the mat.
Since 2014 I travel almost yearly to Asia. In 2019 I traveled around for 7 months. During this trip I also did a 200h Yoga teacher training on Koh Phangan- Thailand. Just now (December 2022) I finished a 300h Teacher training on Koh Samui - Thailand.
During this two trips I realised that this is my destiny and my way of life: doing yoga, share it with other people and travelling/living where I want to be.
For years I was looking for my purpose in life. In 2009 I devoloped an Eating disorder: Anorexia Nervosa. One moment I had to choose between life and dead (2011), I then asked meself the question: 'Who am I?' And the answer was that I wasn't sure yet, but I definitely was able to start fighting against all the darkness in my life.
During the years of my eating disorder I wrote in a dairy. A few years ago, I had the idea to write a book about this dark period in my life. In 2013 there was a documentary about me on Dutch television (link under 'inspiration'). After this I found my purpose in life. I am here to inspire people and show them that life is so much better after depression.
And I want to help you in this journey! Life is not easy, but its worth it.
After writing 200 pages, I had no motivation anymore to write the book. And then I got the idea to make a personal website with a blog. The combination from my lifestyle on that moment and the stories from my past, looks like the perfect match to put in a blog.
Because of COVID-19 in 2020 I lost my job. That gave me finally enough time to make this dream come true. And so, in the summer of 2020, my blog was born. And a few months later, in November 2020 I started my own business in Yoga/Lifestyle.
There are three things really important for me: Yoga, sharing and love. For years I didn't know what love was, but when I found out (during my teacher trainings) I've got obsessed with love. Love for myself, love for everybody and love for everything. And so I realised that everything is one. During yoga I feel love and I share this with the rest of the world.
On my website you will find some blogs about my past and my lifestyle (on the moment almost all in Dutch).
In the future I definitely share more in English.
It would be amazing if I can inspire and motivate you to live the life you want, because life is beautiful and you deserve life. And maybe one day, we meet each other somewhere around the world.
