  • Lots of conscious vinyasa & breath-based yoga practice. We practice twice a day. Morning sessions offer a longer, stronger creative practice that encourage deep healing breathing.

About the teachers

Hilary Anne Brown

Hilary Anne Brown is the founder of Yoga Moves, which she opened in Utrecht in the summer of 2001. A native Californian, Hilary has studied and practiced many forms of yoga, healing arts, massage & bodywork and dance since the early 1980s. She has yoga teaching certificates in Iyengar, Vinyasa yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vinyasa (Prana) Flow, and is recognized as an experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT500) since 2006. She has studied with numerous known and unknown yogis to whom she is ever grateful.

Hilary teaches a lyrical form of vinyasa yoga, a fluid but precise, dynamic yet relaxed method that incorporates the breath as a focus of moving meditation. She teaches with sensitivity and strength, letting you discover what yoga can bring to your life in a real and tangible ways. Breath is always a theme in her work, but equally understanding and feeling what you are doing. Alignment is a key ingredient and joy a natural outcome of her teaching. Sometimes you will laugh, cry or dance in her classes! Hilary is a committed yogi that helps her students take a step closer to themselves.

“.. it is rare to find a Vinyasa teacher with solid experience and true wisdom, who can introduce new technical material, while at the same time guide her students to surrender into the depth of breath and the pleasure of flow.” Gayle Olson, Exotic Yoga Retreats

Jasmijn Koelink

Jasmijn, trained as a social- and organizational psychologist, discovered yoga in her mid-twenties and immediately loved it. A few years into her practice, she completed the Teacher Training at Yoga Moves and has been teaching ever since. She currently teaches vinyasa flow, yin yoga and the slow flow style that one of her teachers, Hilary Brown, developed. Jasmijn’s style is further inspired by teacher Max Strom – and his breath-focused approach to yoga. She regularly participates in workshops by different teachers to deepen her understanding of her own practice and the art of teaching.

Jasmijn strives to flavor her classes with kindness by emphasizing individual adjustments and offering different levels for different bodies. They are breath-oriented, intense, yet grounding at the same time. An active meditation student herself, she integrates a meditative style of teaching into her classes where there is more stillness in between -and in- postures, to allow more body awareness.
