Where are you going this year? Walk with Maarten van Huijstee.

Maarten is first and foremost a human being and proud father and furthermore has had a diverse career in marketing and advertising, founding a few companies, and an extensive list of chairs on numerous boards and committees. He has studied yoga and meditation with masters throughout the world for almost 20 years. Ranging from transcendental to more traditional Buddhist practices. He has been teaching creative and business leaders meditation for more than five years.

Together with Wessel Paternotte, Maarten is leading Delight Yoga, which resembles and functions more like a community than a company, and which encompasses several initiatives - yet all with one and the same single purpose:

To find Inner Peace.

Maarten loves surfing, music, nature and can appreciate a good documentary or book from time to time.
