About Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga is a basic form of yoga. In hatha yoga the focus is on the postures (asanas) and on the breathing (pranayama). ‘Ha’ means sun, the active and the male energy. ‘Tha’ means moon, the inactive and the female energy. The main goal in hatha yoga is to bring the energy (prana) in balance and while we balance our energy we bring our mind and body in balance too. Hatha yoga is perfect for beginners but also for advanced practitioners. I offer more options so everybody can enjoy the yoga.

About Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a more relaxed form of yoga. It is a kind of meditative form of movement. In the yin yoga the postures will be hold for over 3 minutes with a maximum of 5 minutes. Yin, in contrary of the active yang, is inactive. In the posture you try to do as inactive as you can by relaxing all the muscles, let go of everything and let the gravity do its work. By doing this you reach the deeper layers in the body (joints, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue). Also the focus will be on energy lines (meridians) in the body. The goal is to balance the energy (qi) in the energy lines and in the body. Everybody can practice yin yoga. Every posture can be made suitable for you so you can fully relax and enjoy the positive effects of the yin yoga.

About Pranayama & Meditation

Pranayama is a word from the Sanskrit language. ‘Prana’ means vital energy or life force, ‘ayama’ means controlling or extension. Pranayama is the conscious awareness of the breath and controlling the breath. In some of the classes we will practice pranayama and meditation in the beginning/end.

Yoga online

Yogiez is teaching online yoga classes weekly. Every Tuesday Hatha yoga (19:00 – 20:00 – Amsterdam time – CEST (GMT+2)) and every Thursday Yin yoga (19:00 – 20:00 – Amsterdam time – CEST (GMT+2)). The classes are taught in English.

The classes will be taught via the program Zoom.

About The Location

This year the yoga location will be different due to covid-19. The yoga location is located at the lake in the dunes in Hee (duinmeertje van Hee). We gather at the parking place (on the West side of the lake) about 10 minutes before the start of the class. Together we will make our way to the location. As the classes will be outside until the 1st of September, please take something warm with you to the classes. If the weather doesn’t allow us to practice yoga outside the class will be cancelled. You will receive a notification of the cancellation the night before, or when in doubt at the morning of the class before 9 AM. You will receive an e-mail with the cancellation. Beside there is always the possibility to join the online yoga classes on Tuesday and Thursday evening. As soon as the new rules allow we will go back to the main location at Paviljoen West aan Zee! Unfortunately due to the always windy weather circumstances on the island, yoga on the main location and the beach will be impossible.

Also at West aan Zee: Bootcamp and Pilates by Dansen & Sporten op Terschelling, surfclasses by SurfVillage and outdoor activities by MooiWeer.


If you want to join a yoga class, it is necessary to book your class.

Please pay online or take cash with you to the class. As long as the classes are outside try to pay in cash due to the unpredictable weather circumstances and possible cancellation. 

If you don’t receive a confirmation e-mail, please check the spam inbox.

The classes will be held with a minimum of three people.

Possibly last minute extra classes and possibly extra classes on the same day if the class is fully booked. Check the website or get in contact about the extra classes.

Extra classes: Wednesday 17-06-20 Hatha Yoga (10:30-12:00) and Thursday 18-06-20 Yin Yoga (10:30-12:00).

About me


My name is Ezra Goudzwaard. I first made contact with the concept of yoga when I was still studying for my bachelor in Cultural Anthropology and development studies at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. From that first moment, the first yoga class, yoga ignited a passion in me that I could not resist. During my bachelor, I specialized in religion and philosophy of Asia, where I studied the ancient yoga scripts. I then moved to India to conduct field research into the practices of yoga tourism. This lead to my Bachelor thesis ‘spiritual yoga tourism in India’.

After my studies I decided to focus on developing myself as a yoga practitioner. During and after my studies I travelled all around the world. The experiences that travelling has brought me allowed me to grow as a yogi. I met the most fascinating yogi’s who taught me valuable lessons. Also, I achieved some certifications: 200 hours Hatha Yoga, 50 hours Yin Yoga and Pranic Healing Level 1.

Today, yoga is a lifestyle for me. Yoga teaches me a lot in life and I enjoy yoga every day. With Yogiez I hope to share my knowledge to you, so you can experience the joys of yoga as well!
