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 two intensive yoga teacher certifications – 200 hours of Hatha yoga and 50 hours of Yin yoga.
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!
