MY YOGA STORY

Twists & Beans is all about moving and nourishing the body and soul.

Whereas the twists are not just for twists in yoga poses, these twists are mainly a wink to the functional approach of the yoga practices I’m teaching. Everybody is different and unique, and therefore each class gets customized "twists" with different options and possibilities, so that each student feels empowered by choosing the option that “fits” best for him/her.

Beans represent the focus on healthy fresh organic and local food (prioritizing plant-based).

Twists & Beans is born to create yoga classes and seasonal workshops to offer a magical combination of yoga, meditation and food. When yoga is complemented with healthy food habits, it contributes positively to physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

MY PHILOSOPHY

I invite my students not only to explore the physical boundaries, but also to cultivate openness on a spiritual level. Both the physical side to make the body stronger and more flexible and the need for reflection and introspection play an important role in my yoga experience and practice. By embracing all aspects of life, I hopefully motivate my students to dive deeply and find their inner powers and joy which allow them to navigate easily on and off the mat, through whatever arises in their life.

I am a Brussels based certified Yoga Teacher in Vinyasa, Yoga Therapy, Face Yoga, and Yin Yoga.

MY LOVE FOR FOOD

My passion for healthy food came by exploring the benefits of it for health reasons.

 

I strive to be more conscious about what to fuel the body. My journey to optimal health and wellness began with the integration of raw and plant-based food. My curiosity about the effect of food on the body and wellbeing is a quality that I love to share with my students.

Even though I have moved away from mainly raw and 100% vegan, I remain very conscious to integrate the food I love and that feels nourished and whole.

Eating healthy doesn’t mean to privatize anything, on the contrary, the possibilities are limitless. The deliciously flavorful, whole, organically grown planted-based preparations are presented to my students with much passion and love. I reveal the nutritional benefits and how they can contribute to body wellness and a healthy lifestyle.

 

If you wish to taste from my sweet vegan delights, the yoga workshops are a must.

 

Besides being a certified Yoga Teacher, I am a certified Natural Food Coach as well. The combination of yoga with nutritional workshops are the union of my two worlds. That is living from the heart of Twists and Beans.

REIKI

My initiations are performed by the wonderful Reiki Master Griet Heylen of Anam Cara.

Reiki is a universal healing energy, it is not a technique or method. Reiki has no skin color, belief or age. The way it is passed on to others is a method. In the Usui System of Reiki Healing or Usui Shiki Ryoho, this energy is used by gentle touch for healing. Grandmaster Hawayo Takata, the woman who brought the Usui System of Reiki outside of Japan, said:

“Reiki belongs to anyone who seeks and desires to learn the art of healing. It will find its way when the student is willing to accept. He is shown the way. "​

The only way to find out what Reiki really does is to receive a Reiki treatment. Private sessions are on request. Please fill out the contact form to request a session.
