AUGUST 15  – SEPT 4 VERONA, ITALY

GER-JAN VAN DE KAMP, RYT 500

My name is GJ and I’m a tall viking from the Netherlands. This year I’m celebrating my ten year anniversary of teaching yoga full time. Ashtanga, Hatha, Meditation, Nidra, Philosophy, Vinyasa: you name it, I love teaching it all! My own yoga journey started while studying Psychology, and really took off after spending time in an Ashram in Australia. Coming home after that magical trip made me decide to dedicate my work and life to yoga. I started my teacher trainings right after I came back, gave up my desk job and within a blink of an eye I was teaching full time. 5.000+ hours of teaching later and still enjoying every class like it’s the first. My yoga statement of purpose is: safe, inclusive, no-nonsense self care. Hope to share this with all of you.
