In 2009, Willemijn moved from the Netherlands to Aruba with her husband and two sons. It was there she began her yoga practice with Rachel Bratchen. In 2012, she completed the Foundations in Aruba. In 2013, she completed her YogaKids Certification Training and moved back to the Netherlands. During the day, she works as a social worker and teaches teens. Her intention is for the teens to enjoy the class, have a lot of fun, learn to listen to their bodies – and go home feeling relaxed and good about themselves!
