Nice to meet you!
I’m Saskia, a curvy yoga teacher who’s passionate about making yoga accessible to anyone, regardless of ability, size or background.
As someone who has continually experienced being the largest person in yoga classes and teacher training courses, I know how difficult it can be to step into a studio class. But believe me, yoga is not just for flexible and thin people. I strongly believe that yoga is for everyone and so I will make you feel welcome in my classes. I encourage modifying poses and the use of props to make poses work for your body, not the other way around.
I have been practicing yoga since 2007. After exploring different styles, from Ashtanga, Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa and Acro Yoga, I discovered Yin Yoga in 2017 and completely fell in love with it. I found yin to be the perfect complement to the active (yang) part of life. After having completed several yoga teacher training courses both in India and London, I now teach Hatha, Yin and gentle flow classes. My classes are slow and grounding and will leave you feeling balanced and calm.
I share lots of yoga and modification tips for fellow curvy yoga practitioners on my TikTok!
