Welcome at Yogashala!
Yogashala is a small and intimate yogastudio in Den Haag. Founded in 2006, it has been a place for authentic yoga practice ever since. We created and evolved Yogashala as a space for people looking for personal attention and support, both during their first encounters with yoga and in continuing their yoga journey.
We care about every person who comes to practice to learn from us. Everyone is known to us by name. Whoever needs more personal assistance can consult and work with us outside group classes in a private setting.
Our presentation of yoga has been a fusion of all the knowledge we collected over the years and our deep trust in and love for life. We sometimes use a combination of yoga with other modalities to increase its impact. We attract and support people willing to invest in learning about active transformation, efficient physical and spiritual self-care, profound wellbeing, and healing from long-term issues.
We believe life has got a lot to offer and you can choose to open yourself to it. Our deepest intention is to live that openness by continuously creating a place for you that is heartwarming and safe. Over the years, we have enjoyed witnessing many people feeling inspired and empowered by our authenticity and knowingness.
We look forward to welcoming you at Yogashala where we will continue to reap and share the fruits of life!
Re-treat from your daily life for an entire day, dedicating your time and energy to yourself only. A day in the presence of love and care.

We will guide you into your body to experience space, find your heart and connect with it. No woo-woo but direct, pure and simple.

Private yoga classes
In these troubled times, enhancing our resilience should be on the agenda of everyone. Reflection, calm and peacefulness are very much needed.
Private yoga classes can highly contribute to this. I have the ability and years of experience to choose a targeted approach based on active listening. My on-the-spot choice for the class content will be based on a short reflection of what you are in need of at that very moment and what you practiced and learned before. My intuition contributes to a great extent.
Your private yoga classes should feel as “me-time” and be labeled as “quality time”.
I regularly dedicate blog posts to my one-on-one work to inspire growth, share experiences, reduce prejudices about yoga in general and clarify its potency.
I am looking forward to meeting and teaching you!
Expertise @ Yogashala
We are specialized in an individual approach regarding physical complaints (back, neck, shoulders, hips) and Burn out.
Our expertise is based on
* Chris’ knowledge as a.o. therapeutic masseur and movement expert;
* Anke’s extensive knowledge of the application of yoga with the most suitable approach.
We present our teachings and treatments with clarity in theory and practice. They should bring about relief from your complaint and stimulate the innate self-healing capacity of your body. Learning to correctly exercise most often proofs its value as the body is made to move.
Who are we?
Chris encountered yoga at the age of 13, by that time he practiced postures from a book. For Chris there is no yoga, no life, no love without passion and teaching yoga without passion wouldn’t work either. He transmits his knowledge with pure and heartfelt teachings that define what Yogashala is well-known for. He is a Kundalini yoga expert who loves to share!
Anke’s main tool in teaching yoga is intuition. She knows the “how and why” of the approach she chooses for groups and private classes. Experience gathered over many years has helped crystallize her perception and approach of someone’s reality and need. Anke meets people with love and compassion, seeing their strength and vulnerability.
