Having ran my own kitchen, I gained an understanding of what it means to cook meals that are satisfying and nourishing. My further qualifications and experience in Strength Training, Physical Conditioning and Endurance Sports, and Yoga have constructed a well-rounded understanding of the aspects of physical activity that bring balance to the body. Hereby a little bit more about my background….

I appointed Evelien as my swim coach as I endeavour to improve my swim technique for competitive triathlons. Though I had been swimming since I was a kid, as an adult, I wasn’t comfortable in the water. I would watch others swim for what seemed like hours with no effort and, no matter how much I tried, it was hard for me to swim more than a lap without getting tired. I can hardly believe that I’m now swimming a mile and having fun doing it! Your patience and enthusiasm, your drills and instructions, have made it possible to advance in technique in just a few weeks. I also think your love of swimming – your positive outlook and reinforcement – makes it easy to love all the practice. Thanks for passing along all your secrets!

A very effective massage: I had pain in my knees for several months, and after the massage the pain disappeared. I felt very relaxed throughout my body and regained my energy. Evelien is very professional, I was confident. thank you very much for this moment

Evelien’s Thai massage was excellent. She was incredibly relaxing and holistic in her approach, much more so that with Thai massage I have experienced in the past. She also tailored her approach to the different needs of our group, making sure everyone had a good and individualised experience. I would highly recommend!

Yoga with Evelien is my weekly indulgence that I so look forward to. Evelien creates a welcoming & safe environment that is perfect for relaxing and taking time out for self reflection Her teaching style is calm yet engaging and her soporific voice is the perfect tool to lead the class I would thoroughly recommend everyone to spend time with Evelien and let her guide you through your yoga experience


Dining at Casa Arts has always been a total delight. The perfect ambiance of relaxed dining with a sophisticated edge. Every dietary requirement is catered for which simply leads to total relaxation The buffet brunch never fails to please. Great selection of foods with the reassurance that everything is prepared fresh and where possible, ingredients are locally sourced We have taken visiting family with an array of dietary requirements and everyone was totally satisfied ! The warm and personal welcome is just the best and Casa Arts is our little haven.

I’ve been doing classes with Evelien for a few weeks now in Torre Del Mar. Her classes are amazing as she fully explains the posture and guides you in a way that makes you feel comfortable and not self conscious. Her techniques leave you feeling energized and her classes have helped my overall flexibility and fitness journey after moving to Spain. Thank you 🙏

My husband and I attended private Yoga classes with Evelien. As pensioners we were nervous about doing so much stretching, but Evelien is such a patient, funny, and considerate yoga teacher; we worked at a speed that was perfect for us! We do not hesitate in recommending Evelien as a wonderful person and teacher of Yoga.

I also went to a Sourdough Caring and Baking workshop hosted by Evelien. It was a great day, learning all about sourdough, making my own loaf and enjoying a gorgeous lunch with a group of new friends - I had a lovely day !

She is a superb cook a very talented young lady!
