Biography

Conoce la Biografía de Alosja Van Leeuwen, hasta la concepción del proyecto Alosja Yoga.

After years of working behind the gaming tables as a croupier all over the world, I knew a change had to come. That change came with yoga.

For more than 20 years I have been practicing and studying yoga. On my travels to India I got to practice Asthanga Vinyasa and Iyengar yoga. It was in 1997 that I started studying and practicing Critical Alignment Yoga & Therapy, with Gert van Leeuwen (author of the book Critical Alignment Yoga) at his institute in Amsterdam. I completed the teacher training course in 2003, with the Yoga Alliance I am registered as a ERYT 500, id 59203.

Yoga is a practice for life, you never stop learning. So whenever I have the opportunity I take classes with, for example, Brigitte Longueville from Solstice Yoga, or Oscar Velázquez from Mexico City. With David McAmmond (Canada) I learnt a lot about Restorative yoga and with Anne O´brien (U.S.A.) I was able to deepen my knowledge on how to teach. In July 2015 I took a Yin Yoga course in Monterrey with the Yoga People. Apart from yoga, I also have taken various Vipassana meditation courses, and try to sit as often as possible to meditate.

In the Yoga congresses held in Mexico City and organized by IMY, I was able to take classes with various national and international teachers.

Currently I teach in Oaxaca, Mexico in, not only regular classes, also private sessions, giving workshops and weekend retreats in Oaxaca mountains and in Holland and Germany.

In 2013 we finished the first teacher training given by Alosja Yoga together with guest teachers. And I am happy to announce that there are now more than 35 new yoga teachers certificated as RYT200 here in Oaxaca. En May 2018 we will start the fifth generation of teacher training.

When I am not dedicating myself to Yoga, I dance Salsa, train MMA, or walk my three adopted dogs.
