Maike Mullenders

I first trained and worked as an actress and dancer, where the main focus of my working-life was physical theatre.  After ten years in the profession I re-trained as a couple and young people’s counsellor.  I loved counselling, but my body was starting to feel left out.  It was at this point that I began practicing yoga. Training as a yoga teacher felt like an opportunity to integrate my previous fields of work.

I love flowing sequences and enjoy exploring the momentum and impulse behind movement.  I am a believer in the healing potential of yoga on a physical and psychological level.  I am passionate about exploring and incorporating elements of therapeutic work in my yoga practice.

Enabling people to have a positive relationship with themselves is my main goal as a teacher.

Favourite things: Yoga (obviously!), walking and spending time with my family.  In winter sitting in front of the log burner with a good book (normally yoga related!)

Favourite posture: Pigeon pose and as such it is regularly found in my classes, that said I also love Camatkarasana (Wild Thing) and I love to balance, so, not sure.  I just love it all!
