Hi! I’m Roos, 27 years old and currently located in The Netherlands. When I first found yoga 7 years ago, I wasn’t too sure if it would help me or not. I had been struggling for over 10 years with depression, emetophobia, social phobia and agoraphobia. I had become bedridden and sick; I had given up hope. Then one morning I saw a yoga video on YouTube and since I had nothing left to lose, I thought I’d give it a try. The first video that popped up as I typed in ‘beginner yoga’ was Tara Stiles’ morning routine. I wasn’t able to do much physically, but what I was able to do made me feel better than I had felt in years. For the first time in my life I felt calm. Every morning at 7am I’d wake up and sit down on my yoga mat next to my bed. As I sat there and meditated for a few moments, I was able to observe and silence my anxious thoughts. I continued to do yoga every morning from that moment on, which had a profound effect on my life. As I learned to breathe, move, feel and respond, I learned how to take care of myself. It has been a long journey of healing and I’ll forever continue to do so.

I’m ready now to go after my new found passion, helping other people find healing through yoga. I know how it helped me when I thought all was lost and I wish for others to experience what it feels like to move in agreement with themselves. I’m here to hold space for you to be you, to release stress and move how it feels good for you.

I’m looking forward to practicing together!
