Merel van Giffen

Hello, my name is Merel and I have been practicing yoga since 2001. After a training at the Dutch School for Classical Shiatsu (and Do-in Yoga) in The Hague, I started teaching yoga myself in 2016. I also did the Yin Yoga training through Travis Eliot and the Boxing Yoga teacher training in London. After an inspiring training by Claudia Heijdel and Paula den Boer, I have been providing lessons for children since 2022 and I offer workshops at daycare centers and after-school care.

I love dance very much and that is why I started the Corio Body teacher training at Elle Kealy (CORIO method) in 2022 for providing Dance Fitness. In addition to yoga and dance, I am very busy with a healthy lifestyle and I like to inspire others in this area.

I think it’s great to provide yoga for kids in a dance environment here at the LBTS and hope to see one of your kids in my class.
