After travelling to India at the age of 18, Sanne started her studies at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. During her studies she discovered a reoccurring subject in her work; a deep interest in understanding human behaviour and exploring the inner and outer realms of being.
Her work functioned as a form of communication to explore this interest and to share it with others. She gained a huge interest in Eastern philosophy and healing practices. Simultaneously with her studies she began practising yoga.
Her way of communicating was starting to take a turn. And so her journey began.
After graduating she continued her journey, leaving graphic design behind. Ever since she has been flying back and forth between India and The Netherlands, to study yoga with her teacher Bharath Shetty and Thai Yoga Massage and Oil Massage with her mother and teacher Birgit Dieleman.
Now Sanne is a certified Thai Yoga and Oil masseuse as well as a 500hr certified Hatha and Vinyasa yoga teacher. She is happy to have found her way of sharing and being creative and is eager to continue her journey and explore more and more.
The past 3 years she has been the manager at Sawadee Massage & Spa.
From January 2020 she will continue as the owner of Sawadee.
