Isabelle Gheldolf (Brasschaat, België, 6 september 1991).
My passion is to help you set up a spiritual yoga practice that will allow you to experience peace, personal growth and bliss…
In each session I work around 3 pillars: breathing, moving and feeling. I’ve found these 3 elements to be key to becoming the most true, radiant and authentic of yourself.
From the Bhagavad Gita: śhreyān swa-dharmo viguṇaḥ para-dharmāt sv-anuṣhṭhitāt
swa-dharme nidhanaṁ śhreyaḥ para-dharmo bhayāvahaḥ
It is far better to walk one’s own path (dharma) imperfectly, than the dharma of someone else, even though well-performed.
