Denies Du Mon

Founder, Yoga Teacher, Osteopath, Linguist

Denies has always been enchanted by movement, as evident from her physical background: former gymnast turned yogi and rock climber.

Denies started the first part of her studying career in languages and linguistics (English and German, UA). She pursued an academic career in English language change, until she decided two years into her PhD that enough was enough and that it was time to pursue her other passion: yoga & body movement. She completed several teacher trainings over the years in Vinyasa, Prana flow and Ashtanga Yoga, next to a number of immersions and workshops. In 2015, she started the second part of her academic studying career as a student of osteopathic medicine at the International Academy of Osteopathy in Ghent, BE.

After years of study, and co-organising and co-teaching numerous vinyasa teacher trainings and workshops, she has now decided to start on her own, offering yoga classes, workshops and biomechanics lectures next to her very own Creative Vinyasa Teacher Training.

Her classes are known to be fun, innovative, creative and safe. It is always her goal to make yoga accessible to all, whilst still shifting boundaries in an aware way. Together with her husband, she organises yoga weekend retreats that boast scrumptious vegetarian and vegan food, yoga and stunning views.

Nathan Schulpen

Founder, Admin Hero, Coffee Enthusiast

Nathan is a total movement addict. There is no mountain too high for him to climb, no trail too long for him to run and no space too small for him to practice yoga. 

Together with his wife, Denies, he is the founder of Atelier Du Mon. You will see him around, most likely either in a yoga class or sipping a delicious coffee, and managing the allround workings of ADM.

Eva Arsovska

Yoga teacher, Student of Somatic Education (Feldenkrais method)

Eva was first introduced to Hatha yoga back in 2010 in a small yoga studio in her hometown Skopje. 
In 2012 she moved to Malta, where she kept exploring different styles of yoga and practicing daily, bringing a whole new awareness into her life.

With her move to Belgium in 2017, she was lucky to find a wonderful yoga community that led her to pursue her dream and finish a 200hr YTT with Atelier Du Mon.
She continues to learn and develop through her daily practices, workshops and studies.
Eva is passionate about somatic practices too: she is currently studying the Feldenkrais Method and believes that our bodies have the ability to transform, not just physically in being able to do different postures but also on a somatic level, to release non-useful conditionings and habits.
Working with the softness of the subtle, inner movement of the body is becoming her strength. 
Eva`s classes are invitations to start a dialogue between subtle parts of the body and the felt sense.

Ellen Barber

Yoga Teacher, Rock Climber, Translator

Ellen is a rock climber/yogi from Scotland who somehow ended up in this wonderful city called Antwerp. Yoga has always played some sort of role in her life. She started by going to a yoga class at the age of seven with her dad. To be honest, at the time, she thought my dad had lost it and become a total hippie. But then, she just kept doing it. Something about it drew her in. It brings her the balance that she needs in life. So throughout the good and bad, yoga has been there. The classes that Ellen really loves teaching are spicy, creative vinyasa classes. But since most of her life is high-energy and adrenaline filled, she also appreciates the need for yin. It brings her great joy to teach slower yin classes to balance out that rush.  Ellen can’t wait to see you in class and help you along your yoga journey!

Kim De Becker

Yoga Teacher, Optimist, PR Hero

Getting on her first moves in baby ballet class, Kim discovered her passion and fascination for body movement early on. Many years and dance injuries later, she found answers and relief in yoga, both physically and mentally.

 

Spare time is well spent meditating underwater with the fish, or organizing charity events for Shangrila Home, an orphanage in Nepal.

 

You can catch her in a juicy vinyasa flow or a deep yin stretch, but you will find her most inspired in a prenatal yoga class surrounded by glowing momma’s to be.

Matthias Lauwers

Yoga Teacher, Artist, Dancer

Matthias’ approach to teaching is strongly influenced by his initial training as a classical dancer in that he strives to smooth and seamless transitions in his sequences. Both mindfulness and Traditional Chinese Medicine, have encouraged him to teach yoga as a tool to better connect with the natural cycles like the moon and the seasons. 

An avid reader, he loves poetry, imagery and frequently weaves his love for words throughout his teachings. 

 

Influenced by teachers like Wesley Ann Bassett, Kristen Macpherson, Elena Brower and Amy Pearce Hayden, he studied various styles of yoga: hatha, vinyasa, yin and restorative. More than anything, he strives to practice and teach on the mat that which balances our lives off the mat.

Tine Sneyers

Yin Yoga Therapy

Mijn naam is Tine Sneyers en ik ben oprichtster van Shine Yoga 'n Coach. Mijn doel is mensen te doen stralen, van binnenuit naar buiten.

Na een eigen pad van zoeken & vinden, voelt het fantastisch om mensen te mogen begeleiden op hun persoonlijke levenspad.

 

Een pad dat gaat over verdieping, reflectie en jezelf beter leren kennen.

Tijdens een sessie "TCM yogatherapie" brengen we hoofd en lichaam weer in verbinding met elkaar en dit met behulp van yin yoga.  We gebruiken de Oosterse Geneeskunde om de verbanden aan te tonen tussen ons denken en onze emoties enerzijds & onze fysieke gewaarwordingen en/of klachten anderzijds. Op deze manier kom je weer in contact met jezelf en leer je opnieuw de taal van jouw lichaam te spreken.

 

Coachinggesprekken via het lichaam, via yoga, dat is waar Shine voor staat.
