Meet Our Teacher, Irene

Irene Lomer Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher
Hi I'm Irene!
Vinyasa Krama Yoga Teacher

Yoga, pranayama breathing techniques, and meditation practices are all useful tools to help you create balance in your body, breath, and mind. Since we're all unique and have different needs, what works best for one person will likely be different from what works best for someone else. 

That's why I'm passionate about teaching vinyasa krama yoga in a step-by-step approach tailored to you as an individual.

I teach beginners and more experienced yoga practitioners flowing sequences of yoga postures, pranayama breathing techniques, and meditation practices that are specifically targeted to an individual's needs. Giving you the tools to be able to develop and maintain your own home yoga practice and find more balance in your body and mind.

Antara Means Creating Openness and Space

Over the last decade, I've found that practicing yoga, pranayama, and meditation makes me feel at my best physically, mentally, and emotionally. This led me to start sharing my love for yoga, pranayama, and meditation techniques with individuals, groups, and companies via online and in-person classes in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

I grew up in England and moved to the Netherlands in 2010. And I'm very grateful to live in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.

 

From a young age, I was introduced to Eastern health and movement practices, with both my parents teaching and practicing Tai Chi and Chi Gong Chinese exercises every day.

 

My passion for yoga began in 2012. I still remember to this day the sense of calm I felt at the end of my first-ever yoga class. I felt amazed by the physical benefits it brought to my body and the calming effect it had on my mind.

 

Yoga quickly became a major part of my life and a source of physical and mental strength. And I soon found myself practicing some sort of yoga, pranayama, and/or meditation technique every day. I now love to take my yoga mat with me wherever I go and have learned from senior teachers in India, Southeast Asia, the US, and across Europe.

 

I practice and teach vinyasa krama yoga which focuses on an individual approach to a holistic and balanced yoga practice. This offers the possibility for everyone to learn and adapt sequences that work best for their body.

I'm passionate about teaching beginners and those with more experience in yoga. I love breaking down and exploring the alignment principles of different yoga poses and then integrating these into flowing sequences.

 

I also find the focus on breathing very important within both your physical yoga practice and formal seated breathing exercises, pranayama. As well as being enthusiastic about bringing more awareness and quietness into everyday life through meditation.

For me, continuing my yoga studies as a student is equally as important as teaching. How after all can you effectively teach something you aren't actively practicing?! 

 

I practice and learn vinyasa krama sequences, techniques, pranayama, and meditation with the internationally renowned teacher Matthew Sweeney. And have been certified by Matthew Sweeney to teach the moon sequence and level 1 pranayama.

I'm also certified to teach the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) 8-week course and techniques by the Bangor University and UK Mindfulness Network.

Whether you are new to yoga or more experienced and want to deepen your practice, I would love to meet you. Please do get in touch if you are interested in participating in private classes or workshops, or would like to organize yoga and mindfulness in your workplace

If you want to start practicing yoga on your own at home I recommend that you check out my free guide with tips on how to set up a consistent home yoga practice.
