I have been living in New Mexico since 1993 but was born and raised in the Netherlands. I live just outside of Santa Fe in a passive solar house on about 1 1/2 acres. The studio is on the same property but has no shared walls with the house and is very private. My favorite place to be is right here at home where every day feels like a vacation. I'm a hospice nurse, Ayurvedic massage therapist and yoga teacher. I love to garden, hike, soak in natural hot springs and practice natural medicine and way of living. I enjoy having guests staying at the studio and guiding them to cultural, spiritual and natural destinations, whether off the beaten path or well known. I also love creating a space where people can retreat from the world, relax and take in the beauty of this inspiring high desert.
