ABOUT IMKEN DONDE
Always inspired by what students bring, Imken works spontaneously and intuitively and loves to teach with a gentle, heart opening approach.
Always inspired by what students bring, Imken works intuitively and loves to teach with a gentle, heart opening approach.
Classes are playful and creative, yet comfortable and relaxed enough to go deeper for tension release, inner calm and revitalisation.
Imken is passionate about sharing tools on finding freedom in movement and uses elements of massage work, tai chi, dance and sound experiences.
Trained in Sama Yoga Yoga (Hatha yoga based), Restorative, Yin and Somatic Yoga (neuromuscular re-patterning) and trained in Craniosacral Therapy, Imken has taught yoga for over 10 years with inspiration sourced from years of travel in India, Sweden and the UK.
Alongside live and online classes, workshops and retreats, Imken also works one to one with clients on specific needs and offers holistic yoga programs together with hands-on body work.
