Antara means creating openness and space. This can be in a physical sense of your body becoming more flexible and open from practicing yoga, but also in a mental sense of finding ways to reduce stress and give your brain a chance to relax and create more space.
Irene Lomer teaches regular hatha, vinyasa and slow flow classes at yoga schools in Amsterdam (Tula & Great Yoga). She also offers private sessions tailored to the students individual needs, gives workshops and business yoga for companies. Irene's passion began after being drawn to the therapeutic benefits of yoga for a severe knee injury. She was amazed not only by the physical benefits it brought to the body but also to the calming effect on the mind.
Quickly yoga became a major part of her life and source of strength and inspiration. After moving half a year to India she found her daily yoga practice helped find space with a busy city life. On returning to Holland she decided to deepen her yoga practice via a teacher training. Irene is a certified yoga teacher (RYT 350). She has been taught by Robert Boustany / Dorinda Farver (Hatha 200 hours), Katiza Satya / Kevin Sahaj (Advanced teacher training 100 hours) and Sandra Carson / Adela Serrano (Vinyasa alignment 50 hours). She has also completed a MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) training with Cecile Mertens and a 10-day Vipassana course in meditation.
