t’s lovely to meet you here on Motivational Yoga by Luna! Since you are reading this, which is absolutely awesome. My name is Lynn but you may call me Luna. I’m about 5’2 with dark brown eyes, long curly hair, and tanned skin. Born on 19 of January 1995. I’m a Capricorn and my rising sign is a Sagittarius. Born and raised in the Netherlands where I lived up on to my 24th in Amsterdam. My mom is from Muang Loei, Thailand, and my dad from Eindhoven, the Netherlands. I have three siblings and I’m kind of in the middle.
I already had the taste of travelling
So where did it all started for me was right after high school, my dad took me to Thailand and I lived in Bangkok when I was 16. I learned how to read and write Thai. We stayed for over a year but because of reasons, we had to go back to the Netherlands.
No college for me
Once we were back I actually had to go to school but I decided for myself I did not want to continue school because I was afraid of the commitment. I did not want to commit myself to a three or four-year studies. It’s because when you choose a study it’s quite specific. How can you now before you are 18 what you want to do your whole life? This scared me so much I just went straight looking for a job.
It’s all about the money
I worked a few jobs in hospitality and saved a lot of money. Around my 20th I started a web shop with eyelashes and contact lenses where I actually made a nice extra steady income. But I always wanted more and more. But on the road, I lost my passion for it because it wasn’t in line with who I present.
MLM, me? Yep, MLM lol.
Suddenly I rolled into an MLM for two months but I know, I know it is such a scheme but at that time at that moment when I was 21 it changed a lot for me. I already knew I had a passion for coaching but I was still shy. I overcame a lot of obstacles with MLM and made some friends for life who today still inspire me. Being there I learned about the gurus of motivational coaching. One of my favourites is definitely Tony Robbins & Eric Thomas. I mean god damn, if you feel down and need some energy just listen and consume.
My first impression of Hot Yoga
On my 22nd I started to have love and passion for yoga. I remember my first Hot Yoga class in Amsterdam. My friend took me with it because we had a one fit pass. I didn’t really know what to expect but he did this before and he loved it and he told me, Lynn, you will love it. Let me tell you, I HATED IT. This work out was so tough I was out of breath the whole time, I sweat so much and normally I almost don’t sweat. So I was shocked. I didn’t believe that only a little after I totally fall in love with hot yoga.
Little did I know that I had to combine two of my passions.
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever it is. This approach never has let me down, and it’s made all the difference in my life.
Anyways, it just came to me. I have to do something with motivational speaking & yoga. Soon I will tell you all about my concept of Motivational Yoga by Luna. So the seed was planted and I began to water it, and it became Motivational Yoga by Luna.
