“Yatra” means (Spiritual) Journey or Pilgrimage and that is how Corine experienced walking the path of Yoga, and walking the path of Life in general.
After her MSc in Econometrics she has worked for about 12 years in a demanding corporate environment as a business consultant, of which 7 years internationally all over the world. At that time the physical postures and spiritual practices of Yoga helped her tremendously to stay healthy and in focus with her job and her life, and helped her to cope with the intense travel.
This powerful experience and her strong passion for Yoga motivated her to even change careers and become a Yoga teacher herself, promoting the benefits of Yoga to people all around her and within the corporate world, and she founded YogaYatra in 2005.
Corine has studied with many internationally renowned teachers (including Clive Sheridan, Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea, Dharma Mittra, Rusty Wells, David Lurey, and in the area of Yoga Therapy with Martin Kirk and Doug Keller) and completed the Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga teacher training program at the SvahaYoga institute in Amsterdam, with Patrick Vermeulen and Gösta van Dam. In the area of Pre- and Postnatal Yoga she was trained by the internationally renowned top notch Birthlight institute. Read more about Corine's Yoga & Coaching Education.
Corine: "During my corporate life I was working hard and playing hard, always seeking for sources of happiness outside myself. Through Yoga however I experienced that true inner peace and happiness is found within oneself, within our hearts, that you are already perfect, and that there is nothing to seek for. Yoga is about re-finding of what you already have and who you truly are; that what is permanent, full of love and peace – your soul, true essence, and natural state. When you start to connect with That, your life will flow."
