Trained in theatre and journalism, and a lover of dance. Heleen has always loved the power of stories and movement to provide deeper insights into what gives us joy and can help us evolve.
Over the past thirty years she has studied and practiced different modalities to discover and explore ways to help others find their own maps to navigate self-care.
As a facilitator and practitioner of Biodanza for nearly three decades, she loves the connection, joy and music that is so integral to this system and moves people to grow from their healthy parts.
Yoga has been part of her life since her teenage years and she has been teaching it for the last six. The discipline and gentleness embedded in the poses and movement sequences - as well as the wisdom behind it - form a wonderful mental framework for modern times.
Heleen is currently finishing her studies in Transpersonal Art Therapy, a modality that enables self-awareness and better choices through creative processes.
The three modalities she works with bring the joy of being present in the moment, a framework for thinking and greater self-awareness.
Her approach is to be respectful of each discipline as they stand. She believes that in life these different disciplines work in synergy to support us in our journey.
Kasumi’s deep yogic journey began in a rather unique way. The whole story started in one particular year when her children and husband forgot her birthday! Then coincidences occurred one after another which led her to become a yoga teacher. She completed her teacher training at Life Source in 2017, and has since also studied with Michael de Manincor and Lisa Grauaug at The Yoga Institute.
Kasumi is also an Oxygen Advantage functional breathing instructor. While following her yogic path, Kasumi overcame her long-time chronic fatigue by conscious breathing and discovered how much optimal breathing contributes to our physical and mental health.
Classes in Japanese: Kasumi teaches Hatha and slow flow style classes. Her classes are rather in a relaxed pace to leave students a room for inner awareness and she puts a lot of emphasis on breathwork. She loves to see students’ physical and mental transformation.
Kasumi‘s motto is “trust your intuition”. Connect with Kasumi at
