After this she was active as a corporate consultant for employee development and she ran a shop with environmentally friendly baby products. She recently decided to go back to school to complete a professional cookery course and build on her passion to share tools for sustainable healthy living.

Steven was born in Belgium where he obtained his Masters in Economics and Commercial Engineering. He joined a corporate company in Antwerp who sent him out to the African continent to develop new business, first based in Lagos (Nigeria) and later in Johannesburg (South Africa). There he met Adelline who dragged him to a yoga class. Fast forward a few years later and Steven quit his corporate job as managing director to become a full time yoga teacher.
