Eliza Coolsma

Yoga Teacher

I’m Eliza and I’m passionate about making your life as healthy, happy and easy as possible! I don’t believe in strict rules when it comes to living a healthy, happy life. Eating healthy doesn’t always mean cutting out foods that you love & yoga doesn’t have to be spending hours a day on your mat either: just a few poses or deep breaths can make a HUGE difference.
