Making a positive contribution to your overall sense of well-being and happiness, is what thrives me.
Through yoga, meditation, mindfulness, massage and Reiki treatments, I help you improve your health, reduce stress, be more balanced and have a better lifestyle.

We all have our own journey

Life is beautiful and can be challenging at times as well. This applies to everyone in the world.
If our ultimate goal in life is to be happy, how we deal with our challenges?
As the Dalai Lama once said; ” Happiness is not ready made. It comes from our own actions’. Actions of kindness. For me he is very inspiring.
When we become more mindful and acquiring more equanimity, I think we make big steps towards ultimate happiness.
There are many things which can help you to become more happy and lots of things you can do to become more aware of yourself, to heal yourself, to feel what you need, to know what is good for you, mentally and physically.

Yoga, meditation, mindfulness, massage and reiki are modalities I strongly believe in and what I love to offer you to help and support you where needed.

My road to get more balanced

In my own quest for more balance, getting to know myself better and coping with tensions and challenges, I started practicing and learning about yoga, Reiki, meditation and massages about 25 years ago. I myself have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks.  Reiki, yoga and meditation have helped me a lot, with the result that the panic attacks have disappeared. If I now suffer from nerves, I mainly apply mindfulness and breathing techniques or give myself a Reiki treatment.
I can describe myself as a passionate person with characteristics of high sensitivity, which also means that I sometimes have direct and reactive emotions. Over the years I have learned to deal with it. Partly by getting older and wiser, partly by practicing what I provide guidance in.

Jolinda Cath Massage and Reiki treatments

Privately and for work as a tourleader I have been traveling around the world for many years.
Always, when I am in another country I try the local spas, the small beauty salons, the massage centers to see what other so and to treat myself.

Combination of things make a whole

I am someone who has a variety of interests and had many types of jobs, but always with the common thread  guiding people. Whether as a social cultural worker, photographer or tour guide.

I feel that all my experiences and knowledge that I have gained in recent years come together in my ‘holistic approach’, in which personal attention is the core value.
My own path, which can be described as not ‘standard’, including living abroad for 10 years, has brought me where I am now and I can share what I have learned to help and support you in the best possible way.

I have always been eager to learn new things and the more eastern traditions, wisdom and cultures fascinated me. I like to travel around, doing studies, courses, trainings and retreats. I like learning about herbs and plants and make my own oils, teas and infusions.  
In 2013 I made the step to set up Flow-Spirit and since then I have been teaching yoga and meditation, organizing and guiding retreats and to giving massage and Reiki treatments.

My mission with flow-spirit

“Go with the flow”. Something you hear often.  It sounds so nice, so easy… just go with the flow. To follow what life brings.  
When I choose Flow-Spirit as my company name, I started to think and wonder more what flow really means and how you get into the “flow”?  What kind of “flow” I have, or not (yet). What I want and what I can do to be happy. And one thing that makes me happy to help others. 
I use to the word “spirit” as it can mean as a verb: inspire, encourage, foster.  And as a noun, the spirit is inside us, around us, everywhere.

My wish is to make a positive contribution to your sense of well-being, balance and bliss. 
To support you in your process to reconnect to your own Flow, to become more aware of what is.
To reduce stress and to provide ways to achieve this.
I love to  help to improve your lifestyle, reduce stress and increase happiness.
And to create inspiring, motivating and unforgettable experiences.

Always close by through online healing

Direct contact with you I find really important. And although online is not the same as seeing each other live, it also offers opportunities. When we are not in the same city or even not at the same part of the world I am delighted to  offer distance Reiki healing sessions.  These sessions are combined with life chats. A helping hand is always close by.
