We love Fleur’s vibrancy and are super giddy that she is coming along again to lead a retreat at Yoga Rocks. Hailing from Yoga Rocks’ home studio Svaha Yoga in Amsterdam, Fleur has been enjoying teaching retreats in Europe for many years. Currently she is excited to be spending more time in her favourite place in the world, a stunning spot in Malaysia.
Fleur is a warm and enthusiastic teacher. She guides you through vinyasa flow yoga classes in a gentle, yet invigorating way. Her broad smile quickly turns to an infectious laugh, happily helping newbies to experienced practitioners alike to find the fun in the challenge of the yoga asana. Considerate of the needs of all her students, Fleur encourages you to listen within to find out what feels right for you at any given moment, assisting where appropriate. Afternoon sessions could include restorative and yin yoga, yoga nidra, guided meditation or breathing exercises. Though Fleur loves a bit of chanting she’s the first to admit that opening up to chant can be a very challenging part of the yoga journey – don’t worry it is all optional.
Passionate environmentalism, that comes from a warm heart underpins Fleur’s yoga. She helps you to deepen your understanding of yoga philosophy and its origins, hopefully illuminating a path to a more integral sustainable existence.
To me the combination of yoga and nature is beautifully complimentary and to go on a weeklong journey together with people from all around the world is a powerful experience.
