Willemieke Verweij is the proud owner of Tribes - dance and yoga. Tribes mirrors her dream brought to life: a community bound together through yoga and dance. Growing up in a remote part Zimbabwe it wasn't possible to start ballet as young as everybody else, but after moving back to the Netherlands she was determined to become a ballerina. She developed herself as an all-round dancer, in styles like contemporary, jazz, dancehall and of course ballet. This passion led Willemieke to complete her studies at the Royal Academy of Dance in London while she also completed her studies in Cultural Anthropology & Development Sociology at the Leiden University & Master Culture Organization & Management at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Willemieke also finished her Yoga teacher training with the Baptiste Institute and has developed dance/yoga classes like Yoga Barre and Yin Ballet. Her biggest passion is teaching dance and yoga. Through teaching she hopes to inspire, empower and create possibilities for growth as a group (tribe) as well as individually.
