Cecile grew up in a Swiss ski resort. After completing her business studies, Cecile moved to London and started working in the banking world. Her private life moved her to Amsterdam, where she still lives with her husband and two boys. Her whole life Cecile was physically active with skiing, climbing in the mountains and walking, running, squash, golf, fitness and aerobics.
When Cecile went to a yoga class for the first time, she knew immediately that this was what she was looking for. Since then she practices yoga almost every day and goes to classes weekly. Cecile thinks that Yoga is an endless journey, in which something new can always be discovered and investigated. From 2003 to 2005 she did the teacher training for ashtanga vinyasa yoga one and two. She maintains her qualifications by attending workshops by major yoga teachers from all over the world. The lessons of Cecile are influenced by different yoga styles such as ashtanga vinyasa yoga, iyengar yoga, classical and power yoga.
