My name is Greetje Kooistra. I was born in the Netherlands and live on Bonaire, in the Dutch Caribbean.
I've loved water all my life. When I was about five years old and my mother was going through a sad period, I told her: "You just have to go swimming every morning, because if you do that, your whole day will be good". So I knew from a very young age the healing effect of water.
It is therefore not surprising that I became a swimming teacher. I taught swimming lessons for many years. To children, adults, the elderly, mothers with children and people with disabilities. I am a certified swimming teacher with various specializations.
Parallel to that, I developed into a behavioral expert, trainer and coach. My specialty interaction and personal effectiveness. I provided training and guidance on stress reduction, dealing with aggression, conflict management, personal development and career coaching.
This passion for water and personal development brought me to Aqua Balance. As it is an embodied way of relaxation techniques supported by the healing qualities of water, I can support on a deeper level to more balance in the life of my clients.
I still work part-time as trainer and coach, in addition to guided snorkeling and Aqua Relax.
