Who is Nele?

Blond, small in size, but full of power. However, she is herself during her yoga classes. Nele van Poucke searches your limits - in terms of flexibility, strength and endurance - all playfully on. The timbre of her voice takes you out of your mind and challenges a soft and meditative manner. Nele's encounter with yoga was one of love at first sight. Everything she has learned, she brings with joy and reveals the secrets of yoga. As soon as she suspects that the class can handle it, she twists her body in provocative poses and she encourages you to try and play as well. If you asked her a few years ago about her passions, she said, shoes and chocolate. Imagine now the same question again, then her answer is: YOGA.

Nele comes from the world of advertising and ran once from deadline to deadline. Looking for a way to de-stress, she discovered yoga. Because yoga voted her quiet, friendly and happy, Nele was immediately hooked and teaching began by accident because Elsie asked her to replace one of her classes. By Shiva Rea (the Madonna of yoga) in LA Nele completed her training and she assists Shiva regularly abroad, among others. London, Greece, India, Mexico and Costa Rica and is one of the few people who can give PRANA VINYASA Teacher Training. Except for Shiva Rea and Elsie Matthijssens she rolled her yoga mat out at the following figures: Anthony 'Prem' Carlisi (Ashtanga Yoga), Petros Haffenrichter (Jivamukti Yoga), Gosta and Patrick, Rusty Wells, Two Merrigan (Prana flow), Vinnie Marino , Gurmukh (Kundalini), and Surya Tias Little and many others.

Mandala Flow, let’s break free!



Our life is constantly moving and changing. Some days you need stillness and other days ask for a more solar/dynamic approach to your practice. Prana Vinyasa helps you to find  balance, which is your natural state before we got caught up in the business of work and life. In this creative, dynamic style of yoga we follow the rhythms of our breath and move like nature. We create room to get out of your comfort zone to connect back. 


In this class you will be invited to break loose from the linear and move in a circular way. Your yoga mat becomes a limitless magic carpet where opportunities are endless.
