Mirjam grew up in a small and tight-knit family where philosophy, psychology and religion were discussed at every dinner table. She decided to leave her comfort zone and study law, which gave her a different perspective of the world and taught her public speaking. The journey into the body was sparked by her teachers Patrick Creelman and Rinat Perlman in Hong Kong, where she lived for over four years. She studied the practice of WildLotus, a version of the old tradition that bridged her intellectual background with a strong physical practice that focuses on form and embodies transformation. A spiritual practice, but deeply practical. She is mentored by Elena Brower, the teacher that inspired her most on all things off the mat, such as caring for and valuing oneself.
Mirjam is a mother of two girls, a public speaker and a teacher of yoga, mindfulness and motherhood in various events, workshops, festivals and teacher trainings. She is deeply invested in the relevance of yoga and the practice of mindfulness in a everyday life: physically, emotionally and spiritually.
