The following values apply in 1 on 1 sessions
Take responsibility for your transformation
Yoga psychology invites you to reflect upon your choices and actions and encourages you to take responsibility for your transformation.
Train to focus your attention
A regular meditation practice strengthens our attention. The ability to shift our focus consciously makes it possible to make behavioral changes.
Become comfortable with the discomforts
Moments of transformation are often accompanied with feelings of restlessness and discomfort. Instead of trying to move away from it, we courageously face and feel deeper discomforts that are pointing to the roots of our suffering.
No previous experience required
The techniques are for everyone to use and easy to implement in different situations. Previous experience is not required. No worries, the excersices are adjusted to your level of experience.
An early fascination for the human mind made me choose to study Psychology at the University of Amsterdam. During my studies I practised Yoga & Meditation, which helped me recover from a physical knee injury and introduced me to a new awareness of thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations.
I did two research projects on the effect of Yoga & Meditation on well-being. The first was about the effect of Mindfulness Meditations on Stress and Well-being (2008), and the second one about the effect of Guided Meditation on Stress recovery (2010). Both studies showed positive results. I obtained my Masters degree in Work & Health Psychology (MSc.).
Currently I teach Yoga & Meditation in Amsterdam and on our online platform: Kundalini Yoga School. Besides group sessions I am available for 1 on 1 counseling sessions. International Yoga retreats & journeys I organize with Marieke at inspiring locations worldwide.
“Tim showed me how blockages in my body refer to challenges on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. Tim linked my thought patterns, daily struggles and the big questions of life by simply listening to my story and giving them back in return. Tim is bright, loving, direct and intuitive. He shows me what I actually know, but what my own stories and thought patterns usually disguise. Each session I left full of inspiration and with fresh understanding!” Floor
“I think Tim’s approach is original. It feels nice to really have one-on-one contact with your yoga teacher. He immediately brings focus. Then he gave tips on the basis of a yoga exercise. I do this every day now and I take better care of myself. Tim guides us very honestly, carefully, lovingly and extensively and I experience this as very special. And the yoga, the emotional release, the heart-opening exercises and mantras, the mental support, and then also plenty of advice about nutrition! I am very grateful.” Evelien
“In a short time, Tim helped me pragmatically. In the session the focus was on the now and how I could help myself to worry less about the past, and in my case the future. Tim held up a mirror that kept bringing me back to the now. I now also do a short meditation daily which makes it easier to let go of control and to open myself better emotionally.” Tim
