My Academy Trainers

Our teaching team consist of exceptionally qualified, working professionals with a minimum of 1000 teaching hours experience. And our head trainers Marije Horbach and Victor Arnolds have over 5.000 teachings hours, this master trainer level is extremely rare in the industry.



Originally a photographer for 35 years and engaged throughout his life in many sports, Victor decided to become a yoga teacher noticing the positive effects of yoga on his physical and mental wellbeing.

He did numerous training and workshops with Mark Drost, Zefea Samson, Christina Sell, John Field, Shiva Rea  and many other inspiring teachers and  continues to develop his skills. He taught well over 4000 classes.

His classes can be challenging and adventurous but always focused on practicing with awareness and providing a safe place to learn and explore.



Marije has always loved sports, especially those involving a good work-out. She started doing yoga at the gym, but mostly practiced it on the side. Once she took a hot yoga class, she fell in love with it. She loves to sweat and stretch, and finds the feeling she has afterwards indescribable. exactly what she was looking for…

She stopped playing field hockey to concentrate more on yoga, practicing hot yoga and variety of other styles. Now yoga is no longer a workout; it’s a necessity.



Tanya was introduced to the yoga world in 2006 through raja yoga and meditation in Montreal, Canada. She learned early on that the most important yoga practice was off her mat and in her heart. She traveled to Jamaica to attend an ashtanga yoga retreat. After becoming friends with some serious yogis, she had a spiritual revelation. She realized she wanted to dedicate her precious time on earth to spreading light, love and compassion.

Tanya was working in the banking world when she decided to quit the corporate life and pursue something that made her smile everyday. She started practicing yoga more intensely and fell in love with the extra benefit that hot yoga gave her.

She is a strong believer in having a strong foundation in asanas, therefore always encouraging her students to take one step back to be able to go two steps further next time. You will usually find Tanya smiling around the studio, or singing in the showers, unless she’s attending a flow class of course!
