Ayu Doula Amsterdam is born out of the wish to be present for the women, men and mothers of my Community, in the Amsterdam area. I offer a flexible combination of "in person" and "online" support in the field of Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga Therapy and Birth and Postpartum support.
My approach is based on listening and assessing your needs: I will be meeting you exactly where you are, so that you can safely explore new possibilities when it comes to giving birth or getting ready for the postpartum period, feeling better in your body and making healthier food and lifestyle choices.
I'm an Ayurveda Practitioner specialised in women's health, pregnancy and postpartum and a Birth & Professional Postpartum Caregiver. I'm also an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist and I am part of the teaching team of the Delight Academy of Ayurveda in Amsterdam . I hold a Master Degree in Psychology and an HBO Level Degree in Medical Science (Medische Besiskennis).
Currently I am happy to share my love for Yoga and Ayurveda online and in person within the warm community of Delight Yoga and the Delight Ayurvedic Academy in Amsterdam; I'm fortunate to be able to keep on learning and sharing my immense love for a practice that unfolds in a safe space, bringing up a level of intimacy with myself that has been - and still is - life changing.
I'm grateful for the loving guidance of all my teachers. Among the things I've learned from them is that there is no transformation without friction: as to say that some level of effort is required to replace a harmful habit or a negative thought with a healthier and positive one. I find this matching with the experience of birthing a child and becoming a mother so that that's exactly what I try to pass on. Most likely we will be in need to re-train and unravel your belief system or to push yourself out of our comfort zone to a certain extent and this is likely to feel uncomfortable and unsettling for a little while before the new habit becomes an effortless part of our new and healthier routine. I always try to convey that to overcome this initial sensation it is important to remember "the reason behind" and "keep on practicing" whatever is supportive for you in the process. Eventually, you'll get there and I'm here to support in this.
What else about me?
I love simple things: the smell of freshly made coffee that wakes me up in the morning, crisp sunrises in the winter, strolls by the sea, cooking, reading and traveling the world (the one outside and the one within) and my furry friend Mia.
I'm looking forward to meeting you soon, online or in person.
