Gudrun loves and needs movement – in her body, in her head and in life. For her this is like an “ON” button for happiness, energy, good mood and wellbeing.  In movement she finds to herself, to her center, her strength, to tranquility and clarity. She always loved different kind of sports, such as gymnastics, athletics, ski alpin, swimming and marathon running.

Yoga stayed permanently as Yoga gives Gudrun so much, in all aspects of her being. She found her favorite style in a dynamic, powerful Vinyasa Flow Yoga which she mainly is teaching to her students.

Yvonne Hendrikx   –  Teaching Meditation and Mindfulness at Pilates Beach Escape

Yvonne Hendrikx has experience over more than 15 years with various forms of meditation, such as mindfulness, vipassana, tonglen, singing bowl meditation and total body scan.

In recent years she has focused on the transformation process, resonance and high sensitivity as a strength. Yvonne’s approach is simple and down to earth. During the singing bowl sessions at Pilates Beach Escape, you will experience a deep mental and physical relaxation that will make you more and more aware of the connection with your own body and your surroundings.

Besides giving meditation and intuitive coaching, Yvonne is a freelance (online) marketing and communication consultant in the profit and non-profit sector in The Netherlands and is an open-minded person who is happy to connect with new international people.
