Ferdinand founder teacher Yogaground studio Rotterdam Central


Bringing yoga within reach for everybody.

In 2016 Yogaground’s Founder and Brand Director set out to create a company offering great yoga and movement to all, regardless of prior experience or overall fitness level. Bringing that mission to life every single day with the Yogaground team is what he enjoys most.

Meanwhile, Yogaground has evolved into a real movement studio that has been renamed YG Studios since June 2022. Here, in addition to several types of yoga, you can now take strength training, HIIT, boxing and running classes. To further complement the movement concept, you can even book a massage or order a shake for after your class!

He also likes to do yoga, running or strength training himself. Often he is suddenly standing next to you in the class of one of the YG teachers. He does yoga to relax. As he says himself: ‘Yoga resets my body and my mind’.

Ferdinand trained with Bela Lipat in The Hague and Rotterdam (Ashtanga 200 hours), followed Broga Teacher Training with Matt Miller in London and Hot Yoga Teacher Training in Amsterdam with Huub Verweij.

Rotterdam has been his home for many years. He loves the creative vibe and entrepreneurial spirit that have taken over the city in recent years.

On a free afternoon he likes to go for a walk with Scott, the studio dog, through Rotterdam North, and then have an ice cream at IJssalon Koen.
