MICKI RAMONDT / PLAYFULOTUS
When Micki took her first yoga class in early 2006 in Philadelphia PA USA, it was love at first asana. Initially it was the physical challenge of it, soon she began to notice how it calmed her mind and opened her heart. Since than she has devoted herself to the practice of yoga. And in 2008, she completed her first teacher training.
In 2011 she packed up her world and moved it to London UK to begin again, a humbling experience. All of which is not forgotten but instead shared. Her teaching style fuses her life experiences with a creative and dynamic practice and a spot-on spiritual dimension. It is challenging as it is compassionate. You are left feeling energised and inspired.
