What do you like most about teaching at Het Gymlokaal?

The vibe! Het Gymlokaal is truly unique.  The members are curious, highly motivated and really hard workers.

What is your background?

I received a Bachelor in Dance from the Amsterdam School of  Arts.

What is unique about your lessons / way of teaching?

I make sure everyone feels seen, that everyone is equal, despite the differences in level. I like to highlight the positive and I would like to make someone better and to make them aware of their body.

What quality should every good trainer possess?

The ability to improvise / be sensitive – by not teaching indiscriminately. But by first tuning in, to those who are in your lesson and from there see what they need.

What is your specialty in the field of movement?

Dance - especially the relationship between strength and flexibility in the limbs.

What can people expect from you as a trainer and from your lessons?

Enthusiasm and positivity. A low cardio full body workout  focusing mainly on strength and flexibility with influences from yoga, pilates and ballet.

What can you offer / teach people?

Awareness of the body. Not immediately, but expect results in the long term that will make your foundation a lot stronger.
