Hi there! I’m Claudia, Oslo-based yoga teacher, health coach and reiki practitioner.
I teach studio and corporate classes in Oslo, offer online and face-to-face health coaching, and offer reiki sessions here in Oslo. I’m the co-founder of Sanga Yoga, the space for prenatal yoga and mother-baby yoga in Oslo.
I grew up in the Netherlands and found yoga in Amsterdam, over 12 years ago. Yoga wasn't very popular yet, but I fell madly in love. I loved that I felt soft and calm after every class. I loved moving my whole body, I loved those 90 minutes of peace and quiet, and I loved exploring my body and mind in a totally different way. To me, yoga is still that. It's what gives me both energy and stillness, it gives me confidence and pride, it helps me ease anxiety and feel at home in my body. It helps me be me.
I left my home country in 2011 to travel the world – a journey that took me and my husband to the highest mountains and most beautiful beaches, hectic cities and quiet little villages, and amazing yoga teachers.
After a year on the road we moved to Oslo, Norway, where I now mainly teach mothers and mothers-to-be in our prenatal and postnatal yoga classes at Sanga Yoga. I also teach studio classes in Yin, Hatha and Flow yoga.
I’m also a holistic health coach, helping women find peace and joy in their own bodies. I truly believe that there's no such thing as a "one-diet-fits-all".
When I work with women, we focus on their uniqueness, and together we find the right approach. I specialize in hormonal health, fertility and body acceptance, and I'm passionate about supporting mothers and women on their way to becoming mothers.
Reiki is such a beautiful addition to all of this. I use it yoga and coaching, but also offer private reiki sessions at your home or mine.
