Riki Smits



After 10 years of practicing yoga, Riki followed her curiosity about the deeper wisdom underneath the asanas and dedicated herself to the yoga philosophy by following a 200h Vinyasa teacher training.
During this training, she soon found that the way she had been living her life no longer suited her anymore. And so her yoga journey began, exploring her curiosity ever further. After 10 years of working in a business environment, she discovered her own Yin energy – a side of herself that she had hardly paid attention to before. Completing a 200 Yin Yoga teacher training was the next logical step, and Riki continues to hone her practice through different workshops and advanced studies, such as Restorative Yoga.
In her classes, Riki guides you through the gentle movements in a loving yet encouraging way, helping you to deepen the (re)connection with your body and mind. After her classes you’ll feel alive and reconnected to yourself.
