Dolph van Stapele
From the age of 10, Dolph started sensing a more in-depth perception of life. After 2 decades of searching in a variety of spiritual directions to find some clarity, he discovered the wisdom of Buddha. Buddha's search for liberation of the suffering resonated with Dolph's internal quest. The late Indian Advaita Vedanta teacher Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj represented the embodiment of this wisdom and Dolph took a deep dive and after an intense period of dedicated search with his own teacher he understood the non dual nature of existence, the oneness we often hear about.
Nephtalie was born in Curaçao, and even as a young child she felt that there was more to life than what is visible to the eye. This need to understand led her to traveling the world, mostly on her own, to find her spiritual path. After years of searching in many different places, she came to realise that the truth cannot be found in one geological place, it's everywhere. We are it. Her empathetic heart, makes her a welcoming and valuable listener and host. She is also a Reiki healer. As a duo, she and Dolph make Ashram Curaçao a warm and welcoming place to stay.
Born and raised in India, Padma Daryanani better known as Ritu started her yoga journey in Curaçao. A personal journey became a passion and she pursued it further by taking the teacher training back home in India. While assisting and giving classes in a local studio, the thirst to know more furthered her journey beyond just giving classes. After the teacher training and some practical experience, the need to specialize in therapeutic yoga, breathing techniques, yoga Nidra, and prenatal yoga opened more doors in this journey. She successfully ran a full yoga studio.
