Being born and giving birth are two of the most impactful events in our lives. It takes at least six weeks to recover from childbirth and get used to the new role and changes in the family. In many cultures, this first six weeks is considered a crucial transitional phase for optimal bonding and recovery.
Together with a group of experts in the field of birth aftercare, Ingrid leads the international Postnatal Support Network foundation. Through education and training, the foundation is committed to an extended and more relaxed maternity period.

The Original You
– a 11days’
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness; aware of your originality beyond the roles you have in life. The combination of physical exercises, mantras, mudras and breathing, aligns you with the deeper meaning of your true identity; Your Sat Nam. Would you like to experience the power of this technique? I invite you to connect yourself for 11 days with the special meditation “Experience the Original You” – A small rebirth experience.
Several years back we moved to a house with a garden, something I always dreamed of. For the first few years I applied my knowledge of organic gardening; crop rotation, healthy soil, seeds of good origin. Until one spring a special plant began to grow. I hadn’t sown anything in that spot and I didn’t recognize the leaves. Being curious about this uninvited guest, I allowed it to grow. It grew to nearly a meter in size and two meters high, with stumps of purple flowers. It turned out to be the herb Motherwort (Leonurus Cardiaca); the herb for the young mother and for recovery from childbirth.
By now my garden is an herb forest, with no rows of greens and little interference. Motherwort has taught me to look and listen to my garden. She has become an ally in my study and experience for a healthy and happy life.

My upbringing on a residential farm in the Brabant countryside, gave me an appreciation for living with nature. When he came home from work, my father would first go for a walk around his beloved garden and my mother was a master in preparing food from the land. Read More >>>

Ingrid is a great inspiration to get you in touch with your own core. She stimulates you to make a commitment to yourself through a mix of yoga, conscious communication, exercises but above all her personality.
Both as a yoga teacher and as a coach she knows how to set a transformation in motion with her sharp perception and empathy. I experienced it as a gift.
I attended a personal yoga program with Ingrid. My goal was to make a reset and to learn a bit more about kundalini yoga. She really looks and thinks with you and that is very valuable.
I really enjoyed it and was and am impressed by her knowledge and expertise. And that is very broad including yoga exercises, nutrition, herbal use, chanting mantras, spiritual development etc.
