About me

And how Rasa came to be.

My name is Kim (first ‘Geerts’, but I recently transformed into ‘van der Veer’) , living in Amsterdam with my husband and our daughter Miki. I got inspired by Yoga & Ayurveda in the beginning of 2013 and I am eager to share with you why I so truly believe in these ancient wisdoms.

My Mission

Due to my own experiences I truly believe in Yoga & Ayurveda. Nevertheless, it took me years to understand what it was and how it can support you in life. That is why I have decided to start Rasa Yoga & Ayurveda. Mainly to get you into these ancient wisdoms by using very understandable “urban friendly” language. On top of that I really want to take care of you by bringing you in a state of relaxation, to restore & rejuvenate, during one of my Hatha-, Slow Flow- or Yin Classes.
