Hi, my name is Ingrid van 't Hof, I am Dutch and have lived in Africa since 1998. First in Uganda until 2013 and thereafter in Djibouti until june 2016. We have relocated to Johannesburg in August 2016.
Over the past 14 years I have had 3 children and married my wonderful husband but still had many issues about accepting who I am, searching for my life purpose and loving myself.
Over the years I did yoga and meditation courses and read different books about life searching issues but it was until I experienced Harmonising Breathing in January 2010 for the first time that I immediately knew that this was what I had been looking for. The way I was feeling after the first session can hardly be described. It was so powerful and I was completely blown away by it. I did about 10 sessions in the next 4 to 5 months and I noticed a difference in the way I felt about life. I decided I wanted to become a Breathfulness coach myself so I did the required training in the Netherlands and finished in 2011. In addition I have also acquired my Coachings Certificate from the Institute of Leadership and Management in the UK in 2013. At this moment I am studying for my diploma in Basic Medical Knowledge in the Netherlands.
Over the last 5 years I have had the pleasure to guide many clients in this incredible breathing technique but also I have had my own journey which has given me a lot of insights about the impact of the 4 pillars on my life. I have experienced myself for example how exercising (in my case running which I started in April 2014) really has made a huge different in the way I think about myself and my view at life. I have been able to really feel how exercising can change the way my thought system is working. And at the same time I feel more fit and more flexible in my body.
In addition I have made changes in my diet and I have discovered that certain foods really have a great impact on my body and mind. For example, when I removed sugar from my diet I noticed that I have much less anger in my body. Please click on my personal blog for more information how the above changes has affected my life.
