Joachim Meire is the founder of Yogaland and the Yogaloft in Belgium. He has been practising yoga since 1999 and is an internationally certified teacher. On a regular basis he offers workshops, retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings. Alignment Based Yoga is a dynamic yoga style taught by Joachim. The pace of the flow is seldom fast, but goes radically deep! Joachim emphasizes the harmonious alignment of body and spirit through asanas , pranayama, philosophy and meditation. His intention is to create more harmony and balance on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. His thorough knowledge allows him to teach asanas tailored to the possibilities and limitations of your body, instead of forcing (read squeezing) your body into an asana. In a down to earth manner, Joachim interweaves yoga philosophy and great storytelling. With a good sense of humour and a soothing voice, Joachim guides you through each class, encouraging you to challenge yourself and experience the transformative power of yoga. His classes are fun, go radically deep and are an inspiration each time. His aim is for you to notice the effects of your yoga practice in daily life.
