The Sanskrit word ‘sneha’ means both ‘oil’ and ‘love’. This perfectly describes what an ayurvedic massage feels like.
During the massage, your whole body will be treated with warm ayurvedic oil, in a loving and caring way.

Costs are 125 euro for a 90 minute massage appointment. To schedule an appointment, send me an email.

"In her own unique way, Irina teaches classes in which she blends together anatomy, spirituality, philosophy, coaching and practical advice. She knows her students through and through and teaches with love, care and compassion. She’ll show you how to grow and bloom. Irina knows what she’s doing and is not only a true expert in the field of yoga, she also knows the ins and outs of healthy diet. I feel grateful she’s crossed my path and for all the lessons I’ve learned from her."
Diana Overvest
"After trying out classes with different yoga teachers in different studios I found my yoga-home in Irina’s yogastudio in Velp. For me Irina’s yoga classes provide a good combination between challenging poses and more gentle ones. I admire how Irina is so much in tune with her class. As a whole, but with the individual students as well. She starts her classes with sensing the needs of the moment and also has an eye for the context of the outer world we live in. By bringing these elements into her yogastudio, she has an ability for creating diverse and inspiring lessons. There is no such thing as a routine or convention with Irina. This is something I enjoy a lot. It makes each class a pleasant surprise and it makes it possible for me to keep on challenging myself. The spontaneity and personal touch Irina brings as a teacher is very important for me. It gives her classes an authenticity which makes the difference between classes that are just good and those that are truly fulfilling."
Rebecca van der Schaft
"I really look forward to my Tuesday evening yoga lesson with Irina. It means that I can finish work and rather than my head continuing to spin about all the things that have gone on in the day, I can completely switch off from all that 'busy stuff' and become calm and peaceful. Through Irina's class I have also been able to use the yoga postures and breathing exercises to help me become more balanced and relaxed in my own life (outside the class). Irina's gentle and clear explanation of how to do the posture during the class (whilst she is also demonstrating the posture) is amazing. She also manages to say at exactly the right time how to correct a posture to get more benefit from the exercise. Her outlook on life and its little lessons are also inspirational. So thank you Irina, you’re a star!"
