Ganesha Maarten van Otterdijk

My first encounter with yoga felt like coming home. Something happened to me that I experienced as logical, as if it always was there, but it was also something new. Sometimes it seemed as if I already knew some asanas.

Soon it became clear to me that the practice of yoga put me on a new (or back on an old) path in my life, and I decided after visiting, and getting acquainted with various ashrams of the Sivananda organization, to do a teachers training at the Sivananda Yoga Ranch in upstate New York. This training allowed me to start teaching at Yoga Maya. All this feeds my spiritual and physical development, feels like a gift that slowly unpacks itsself.

Besides my great job as a stagedesigner for theatre, yoga gives the perfect counterbalance and brings me into balance. And now, curious about the roots, saving for a trip to India….
