During his aerospace engineering studies, Arjan came into contact with fitness and group fitness classes in particular. Yes, the love for flying was in there early!
Liking to be active and move around, enjoying the postural challenge and the group dynamics, Arjan decided to do a teacher training in 1996. Arjan has been a professional group class teacher ever since at multiple gyms in and around Amsterdam giving all kinds of classes.
Through the years his attention shifted more to functional training, bodyweight training and natural movement. The quality of movement, being mindful, flow and play are keywords for him.
Within this more holistic approach, Arjan found AcroYoga in 2014 and participated in a taster class; he fell for it immediately. The mixture of partner acrobatics, partner yoga and Thai massage is wonderful. Loving the open and warm community - the connection, the trust, the touch, finding balance together, doing stuff you think is not possible for you (and not forgetting how fun it is to play together)! He very much likes to share and pass that experience and passion on to others.
