Who is training you?


Marije has always loved sports, especially those involving a good work-out. She started doing yoga at the gym, but mostly practiced it on the side. Once she took a hot yoga class, she fell in love with it. She loves to sweat and stretch, and finds the feeling she has afterwards indescribable. exactly what she was looking for…

She stopped playing field hockey to concentrate more on yoga, practicing hot yoga and variety of other styles. Now yoga is no longer a workout; it’s a necessity.
