Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
A friend gave me the Manduka Black Mat Pro about 8 years ago, and it has been my favorite mat ever since. My Manduka supports my practice from the ground-up, which gives me the freedom to soar to new heights each time I place my feet at the top of my mat. My Manduka mat holds the energy of my devotion, love, commitment, and every daily discovery from my practice. There is no other mat out there that offers the same kind of support. I love my Manduka!
Why Manduka?: My Manduka helps me practice without distraction.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: Once you've practice with a Manduka, you stick to Manduka.
Yoga Style: Ashtanga
Practice with me here: Antwerp Yoga
In 2004, Bart was invited by Elsie Matthijssens to his first yoga class. He was immediately hooked on Ashtanga Yoga. In the beginning, especially for the physical aspects, but later more for the control of the body and breath.
He has always been interested in the human body. From age 7 until age 31 he played water polo. He also did 8 years of athletics, 2 years of Aikido and recreational cycling. Bart then became a triathlete. In addition, to more fully understand how the human body works, he studied Biomedical Science at the University of Antwerp.
Bart is still amazed by the power of yoga. Besides small colds, he hardly gets sick anymore. What he appreciates the most about yoga, is that it truly quiets the mind and gives you inner peace.
