Roy van den Bor

Himalayan Yoga Academy Rishikesh, India. Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)

Coming from a highly rational background in the academic world of Economics, a radical change happened to Roy a few years back, when he started practicing yoga. Now, he is a wandering yogi and massage therapist. He travels the world with an open heart, always keen on meeting new people; soaking up different cultures, and their philosophies.

Katrina Tomson

Katrina's most important message in her classes, is to share the personal potential of connecting to your own practice. Yoga is not about how flexible you are, but the exploration of your own body through direction of breath and personal alignment. The tools you will develop on the mat to tap into consciousness, patience, consideration, and honesty, will empower you to put these into practice day-to-day, helping enrich your life in all directions.

    "I suffer from sciatica, and I just had a massage with Roy. I feel like I have better movement in my body. The massage works on meridians and pressure points with gentle opening and stretching of joints and spine. I love being in his calm and gentle presence."

    "I've had the pleasure and honor to be one of his students in a yoga teacher training at Rishikesh, India. He is extremely knowledgeable and patient. His sequences are strong, but his direction makes it easier to correctly get into the asanas. He is a simple and truthful teacher which made me feel confident and calm at his classes. "

    "I am so grateful that I was able to take Roy's classes for a whole month in Cambodia. After one class, I knew he was my favorite teacher. Yin yoga was amazing and adjustments were made when necessary. His Vinyasa flow was a wonderful, fluid workout. Roy is full of knowledge and striving for more all the time. He is very comfortable to be around and puts his own touch on all of his classes. Also, he gives the best Shavasana. I have never felt more relaxed, and then when you don't think it can get any better, he brings out a flute (sometimes) for some live, relaxing music. You'll never want to leave. "

    "Roy is an amazing yoga teacher. He has a lot of knowledge and a great way to teach with detailed explanation of the postures. The atmosphere in his classes is really nice. He is always helpful and gives adjustments or different ways to modify a posture. He also never forgets the spiritual aspects of yoga which you can see especially in the way he begins and finishes a class."

    "As an instructor, Roy really helped me see that there is a deeper and meditative level to yoga that I could reach. He is always in great spirits and he will occasionally play his flute in shavasana, which is a wonderful way to end a practice."

    "I found Roy to be an excellent yoga teacher. I was quite new to yoga, but Roy was very patient and helped me steadily improve at a pace that my body was comfortable with. Roy is very friendly and approachable. He is able to explain the underlying physical or spiritual principles behind the poses."

    "Roy is a very friendly and passionate yogi. He knows what he is doing in front of the class and teaches us what he knows. His classes are various and always gives me a lot of energy, which reminds me every time that about my love for yoga. I was lucky to spend two months with him at the Vagabond temple in Cambodia. Besides being a good teacher, he is also a really good and warm person. Sometimes at the end of the class, when we're all laying in savasana, he puts on some nice relaxing music, but actually, it's him playing the flute! "

    "Roy has a lot of knowledge about anatomy and about yoga in general. I've enjoyed a few of Roy's Hatha flow classes. He's a gifted teacher who pays attention to his students and adjusts their poses in a kind and subtle way. There is a very positive energy about him during and outside of the classes."

    "I had the opportunity to join a few of Roy's yoga classes. He is a great young teacher with a beautiful, calm aura, and a professional way to teach. I loved his fiery Vinyasa flow and felt very light and strong afterwards. I would highly recommend Roy as a yoga teacher."
