I am a mother of three amazing girls, and daughter of a Yoga teacher. My mother was the first woman Yoga teacher in Brussels. With her teaching yoga and living a healthy lifestyle, it was something I grew into without really realizing. I was always interested in healthy eating, natural healing and yoga (although I was a normal teen having fast food and sodas when my mother was not around).
Eventually I became a Yoga and Autogenic training teacher when I was 26. It was just naturally that I got interested in Feng Shui at the age of 31, as I was always into all kind of metaphysics and oriental knowledge, like Ayurveda, western and oriental astrology or Autogenic training, which I learned when I was 13.
When finishing my studies, which had nothing to do with all of the above, I started my career working 9 to 5 in an office for 30 years. Even though I always told my daughters to do something they love (probably because my mother didn’t tell me, which is understandable for someone who went through war and for whom having a well-paid job was more important), I was kind of feeling miserable with my work life. Not that I am not good at what I do, but it does not feel fulfilling.
After years of wanting to go further into what I am passionate about, I finally started various certification programs to become, among others, a certified Nutrition Health Coach. As people, since I can remember, turn to me for advice, it was a natural choice to become a coach. As I am a good listener and teacher, bringing my knowledge together to guide people towards living a better life, was just the next step to take. Being able to help and give to others is just natural to me and resonates with who I am.
I cannot complain about my work, but I need to listen to my inner self to feel fulfilled. That is why I decided to help and guide others by being a coach. This allows me to bring together all my passions, starting with Nutrition and Health, Yoga, Autogenic training, Feng Shui, Ayurveda etc. With time, I will see which path will take most of my attention, although I feel all of this as a whole.
