I am your teacher in yoga; yoga is your teacher in life

My name is Lana. In India, ‘lañā’ happens to mean ‘to carry’ or ‘to accompany’. That is the mission of Yoga Lañā: to guide you through your yoga practice and help you as an individual to discover how yoga can strengthen your body, broaden your mind and enrich your life. I am your teacher in yoga, yoga is your teacher in life.

As a yoga teacher and psychologist, I teach various yoga in classes in Amsterdam. In addition, I am regularly organizing workshops on yoga & psychology, yoga hikes for outdoor enthusiasts, and each autumn I am in Nepal for a yoga trekking in the Himalayas! I also offer individual yoga sessions and personalized yoga therapy for both mental and physical health.

Yoga is a multi-faceted practice that may help you to develop a healthy lifestyle, a deeper understanding of yourself and above all harmony and peace in your life. Learn more in my classes, therapy programmes and through the blog posts that I am writing regularly. I hope all of this is helpful to you, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!


I have graduated in clinical and neuropsychology (MSc.) at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. I am registered at the Dutch Institute for Psychologists (Nederlands Instituut voor Psychologen, NIP).

I am a certified and registered hatha yoga teacher. My main yoga teacher training was at Arhanta Yoga Ashram in India. I am continuing education in yoga therapy through the Svastha Yoga Therapy programme.
