With gratitude for the Inspiring Teachers I learned from, those who walked the path before me and the amazing students I’ve had the privilege to teach.

Yoga Instructor

Marketing Manager, Monterey Plaza Hotel

“Heleen is an incredible instructor for students of every experience level. I am new to Ashtanga and especially apprehensive as I became pregnant while still unfamiliar with the practice. Heleen has been a constant source of support, optimism, and encouragement. I leave my one on one sessions with her feeling confident and comfortable about growing a healthy baby, and that is truly rewarding. I highly recommend sessions with her for mommies-to-be, as well as anyone seeking restorative balance to their lives.”

“It was eye opening to realize that slowing down is the answer to my “I don’t have enough time” problem. Wow, opposite of what I was trying to do, which made me stressed. I look forward to my daily meditation, something in your workshop clicked for me!”

Through a series of heart-opening exercises, she gently and intuitively connected each of us with our visionary selves, moving us that much closer toward passionate living. Her classes were a refuge for the soul – powerful, transformative and FUN!. If you ever have the chance to work with her, go for it!”

Heleen’s dedication and connection to yoga, its practice and application in life, is on a higher level. She’s the real deal. Her temperament is one of kindness and patience. At the same time, she is able to, gently yet firmly, push you when you need it. Her instruction has been transformational in my life. I could not recommend her more highly!
