Who are we?

Mathijs and Esmé

Mathijs en Esmé both received their training by the founder of Hridaya Yoga, Sahajananda. Hridaya Yoga is a spiritual path whose purpose is the revelation of our True Self, atman or the Spiritual Heart. It is based on traditional spiritual principles and visions from classical yoga based on Patanjali’s Yoga SutrasAdvaita Vedanta, Tantra Yoga, and Kashmir Shaivism. They are further correlated with teachings from Sufism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Taoism. Both Mathijs and Esmé stayed for a longer time in the main center of Hridaya Yoga in Mazunte, Mexico, where they deepened their practice through various silent meditation retreats and served in the community.

Since their return on Dutch soil they have started sharing these heart opening teachings and their experience with anyone who is aspiring to open more to the present moment. Join them in one of the silent retreats and come to a deeper understanding of your true Self.
