Bart Denys

Physiotherapist - yoga teacher - freediver

PhysioYoga is the result of working passionately as a therapist, coach and teacher for more than 25 years. PhysioYoga is evolving and being refined all the time by continuously studying the most recent scientific findings in the field of body-mind medicine, by working with my clients and students and by my own daily practice of yoga and meditation.

I believe that every human being is capable to grow and evolve way beyond what is commonly accepted. The body is a gateway to access your inner power and possibilities to heal, to thrive, to enjoy life, to love and live life to its fullest potential. PhysioYoga can be your guide and support to achieve this goal.

My approach is no nonsense, inviting and confrontational when necessary, empowering with a warm dose of humor to put all of it in the right perspective.
