Teune van der Wildt is an authorised teacher of Ashtanga Yoga and Thai massage from Belgium, with over a decade of experience.
In his late twenties, Teune renounced his career as a kitchen chef in order to fully dedicate himself to a yogic path.
He was initially trained by Jivamukti-adepts Patrick and Gösta at Svaha Yoga, Amsterdam, and assisted Californian yoga-celebrity Rusty Wells on retreats and conferences worldwide for several years.
He has been a committed yoga teacher to his home community in Antwerp since 2007 and worked as a studio manager at AntwerpYoga. He co-inspired the traditional Ashtanga program at this pioneering studio.
Teune has spent over ten months in Thailand with Homprang Chaleekanha, accomplished master of Thai traditional healing, as her student and assistant. He is one of only a handful who received the blessing to teach her style of Thai massage to others.
Since 2013 he makes regular trips to India to further learn Ashtanga Yoga under Sharath Jois, and Teune received KPJAYI level 2 authorisation in 2016.
In 2017 Teune founded Ashtanga Yoga Antwerp (AYANR), the city’s first shala solely dedicated to Ashtanga Yoga as taught by the Jois family of Mysore. www.ayanr.be
