SIEN MONBAILLIU

With a masters degree in Marketing Management and one in Global Business Management, I worked in business and marketing for a while. Following a personal and career crisis, a burn-out showed me the way I had designed my life didn't make me happy.

Yoga, meditation and mindfulness helped me find my way back to myself and deal more effectively with whatever served as a trigger of stress and negative emotions. Over time, these practices became an integral part of my life and I started to feel the call to share them with others, supporting them in their personal search for inner calm.

After several trainings in India, I became a freelance yoga teacher in Brussels. I teach in English, Dutch and French and continue to deepen my knowledge in traditional Hatha, Yin Yoga and related subjects. My life is now a continuous opportunity to explore practices that nourish me and can do the same for my students. During the lockdown I started my own online teaching platform Yoga Online, through which I currently offer Yin & Hatha classes in English.

As I enjoy managing projects and ensuring everything runs smoothly, I became the operational and administative assistant at Brussels Mindfulness. Working behind the screens of the organisation, I get to bridge my old professional life with my interest in personal growth.
