A Netherlands native, Jan compares the illuminating power of yoga to that of polishing a rough diamond. In it’s natural state a diamond is a hard, cold stone but when polished it reveals it’s depth and glow as yoga reveals our inner light. Jan brings a wealth of knowledge to his teaching and his classes embody the groundedness of Hatha yoga with the joyous flow of Ashtanga and Vinyasa. He has trained in India, the US and Thailand with teachers such as Davide Swenson, David Williams, Shiva Rea and Sarah Powers and is currently studying Nutritional Medicine.
