For Hiske van der Meulen, Iyengar yoga is so complete and innovative, and there are so many great teachers worldwide, that she doesn’t expect to be done learning any time soon. She combines her analytic skills, sharpened by her studies in linguistics and work as a policy advisor, with a great interest in the physical that she developed as a fitness trainer and runner. This means she will challenge you in her classes to work hard on your own level.

She was trained in Amsterdam by Clé Souren, Charles Hond and Annemieke Post. She holds the Intermediate Junior III-certificate. When BKS Iyengar was teaching in Moscow, she traveled there, she followed intensives with Geeta Iyengar in 2009, 2015 and 2018, and she studies as often as she can with the Iyengars in Pune. She completed a 3-year course in Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics with Stephanie Quirk, studies regularly with Sheila Haswell and Gitte Bechsgaard and other senior teachers in the Netherlands and abroad.
