Yoga for everyone
About Open Yoga
Yoga for everyone! That is our goal: to create a place to offer yoga in an accessible way, where the barrier to entry is low and where you can go when it suits you. A yoga studio where you feel welcome and can be yourself. Beginner, experienced, down-to-earth, spiritual, more or less flexible, or a healthy mix of all of the above – you have been welcome at Open Yoga for more than 10 years. This is our story!
I am Dieuwertje Homan,
owner of Open Yoga.
Together with Mandy Bolder I founded Open Yoga in 2013, in a small building on Steentilstraat. We soon outgrew that and moved to the beautiful bright building on Zuiderkerkstraat where we have been living for years now. Mandy has now started her own adventure in Spain, but I was certainly not left alone! I now run the studio together with a core team of 4 top students, a 30-person teaching team and about 10 volunteers.
When I was 25, I first came into contact with yoga
Especially to become more physically flexible. I soon noticed that I couldn’t and didn’t want to live without it anymore. I did indeed become more flexible, but it turned out to be mainly the increase in mental and emotional balance that started to give me direction. Yoga became my way to stay true to myself in all the hustle and bustle of life. I wanted to share this with the people around me: increase your awareness together, find your path and become fitter at the same time. So you feel better about yourself, literally and figuratively. That is the idea from which Open Yoga was created: sharing this feeling with as many people as possible!
Of course, I cannot do this alone, which is why we at Open Yoga have also been training our own teachers since 2014. More than 120 teachers have now completed training with us.
Passing on knowledge and the love for yoga in combination with entrepreneurship is a very nice combination for me. And I run this beautiful company with a lot of passion and love. You are very welcome in our studio. Whether you come for yoga, a treatment, a tea or a training, we are happy to take care of you!
