KATRIEN MAES

As a certified Ayurvedic therapist I help people to reconnect with their body, by means of bodywork – Ayurvedic massages and food advice.

Since 2003 I have a private practice, currently in Brussels and Lennik. After several years combining this practice with other parttime jobs I now fully focus on my private practice, cooking lessons, guest tables, teaching and projects with partners such as Iyengar yoga Antwerp, Bozar, Sampoorna yoga, Brussels Mindfulness, Brussels Yoga loft and others.

Stress related problems – both physically and mentally-, burn-out-symptoms and digestion problems are my main specialities. Next to my Ayurveda education in the School of Ayurveda in Gent and by several doctors in India I followed several courses in macrobiotics, orthomoleculair medicine, shiatsu, pregnancy massage, Vipassana silent meditation and yoga.

As I’m more and more convinced about the therapeutic possibilities of yoga, I’m currently (2018) diving into Yoga Therapy courses and teacher trainings. I completed the Yin Yoga teacher training (foundations and assist) with Joe Barnett, a Fibromyalgia Teacher Training with Jessica Roy and  a professional training in yoga therapy for the nervous system, degenerative disease and pain management’ at ‘The Yoga Therapy Institute’ in Amsterdam.

I am a Dutch-speaking Belgian, living in Strombeek-Bever. Next to my work and family life I like to run, to spend time in nature or in a vibrant city, to read or to go for yoga, silence and meditation.
