“Mattijs teaches in a very personal style: original, calm, nonchalant and modest. And at the same time powerful and confident. In a calm atmosphere Mattijs offers ample information that is clearly constructed and practicly embedded. The training brought about a lot and gave me plenty of energy.
I am proud that Mattijs will be offering classes in Do-in Academy.”

“My husband and I, older people, have been having lessons with Mattijs for several years, and enjoyed them very much. He has the skill and ability to structure his classes so that they benefit various ages and needs. Whether the goal is to strengthen tendons, muscles, bones, interconnective tissues …whatever… the exercises are right on and effective. In addition, he always includes anti-stress treatments such as relaxation and meditation, and adds a good measure of humour so that we leave feeling cheerful and relaxed. And always want to come back for more.”

“TAO training with Mattijs opened new (inner) worlds to me and gave me a lot of inspiration in my search for a better connection with my body and my singing voice.”

“I love my craft and I easily give a lot of attention and time to it. I find it more difficult to also give attention to my self. I am up in my head a lot and (too) little in my body, that I just drag along wherever I go. Work, sports, family; Mattijs’ class offers a great balance in the hectic dynamics of the week. Inspiring classes with a healthy dose of humor and perspective. The day after I always am a little sharper and more energetic!”

“First of all Tao Training is fun to do. Moreover it helps me deal with all kinds of things – at work and everywhere – with a spacious and bright mind, a vast field of vision and a healthy body. And to laugh at it all.”

“As I am often confronted with confused people in my work, the Chi Kung classes help me keep my energy collected. As a result I am better able to keep a fair distant from situations and thus I better overview it all. Moreover I get less upset over this kind of nasty situations. I feel so much stronger!”
