MARK DOWE YOGA
I’m a certified Yoga Instructor based in Amsterdam.
I started teaching movement & dance in 1999 but since 2009
I specialised in Yoga and I’ve been lucky to learn
from amazing & inspiring individuals.
My classes reflect a combination of what I have learned over the years and having the chance to share those lessons and experiences with my students makes me very happy.
My approach is safe & functional, maybe challenging at times
but always with humour, freedom, playfulness & joy.
There is absolutely no must to it, no need to fulfil other peoples expectations, let's just find the ideal practice for YOU.
I understand the trust my students give me and I promise
I will take care of you.
Everyone could use a bit more yoga, love, support & balance
in their lives, so I hope to see you on the mat soon.
WHAT I OFFER
When you join my classes, workshops or retreats I will address your strengths and needs individually
and lead you in the right direction to reach your goals whatever they may be.
Take a minute to look at my weekly schedule or book an online class or private session today.
What Is Right For You?
If you join my open classes you can expect a blend of functional & safe asana practice with philosophy & humour woven in. Share the experience with other likeminded people and enjoy the ride.
If you prefer to work more efficient and according to your
individual needs my private class would be a great choice for you.
The focus will be completely on you and we will achieve
exactly what you want to work on.
Yoga & Mindfulness is recognised more and more as a way to improve physical & mental health in the workplace. We can work specifically on balancing out the workplace stress to bring not only a sense of well being but also increase productivity through the day.
If you have further questions feel free to ask.
Let's Go Digital
Some of my clients feel much more comfortable
to practice in the safety and comfort of their own home,
but are tired of either not finding the right video to follow online
or are missing variations and adjustments according
to their specific needs.
Then my online class might be just your ticket:
- a life session where I can personally guide you
- a tailor made class for your specific goals
- one of my existing videos to get you started

Workshops are a great way to gain some more details & knowhow about the practice in a short time. And sometimes it's simply about intensifying the depth of our experience through some extra time time.
Retreats have the hint in the name: it's a ''treat" for your self, to not just push some 'extra' yoga into your day, but actually pulling yourself out of your daily life and emerge yourself into the practice with the help of different surroundings.
I offer both lighter 'yoga holidays' and more intense 'yoga immersions', depending on what seems like the best use of your time.

THAI MASSAGE &
ASSISTED PASSIVE STRETCHING
Relax For Real
THAI MASSAGE or "Thai yoga massage"
is a traditional healing system combining acupressure,
Indian Ayurvedic principles and assisted Yoga postures,
to offer yet another tool to enhance my clients physical
development as well as ones recovery.
ASSISTED PASSIVE STRETCHING
is stretching, where there is an external force being provided. You are being stretched instead of actively stretching.
Passive static stretches are a great way to improve
both flexibility & relaxation.
"TAKE THE PRACTICE SERIOUS, BUT DONT TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUS WHILE YOU PRACTICE."
