Our team


Lilian Nouwen

I was working as a deputy director in a wholesale company for organic fertilizers when I met Art of Living in 1998. Many courses and trainings followed, and since 2001 I have been trainer of the Happiness programme. It is so nice to see what this programme brings to people. In addition, I was a board member and volunteer in several organisations, including Art of Living, IAHV and at the time also for Shankara Europe. In 2006 I changed jobs and started working fulltime for Shankara Europe. I have been doing this work for years with a lot of pleasure and dedication, together with a wonderful team. The section Sri Sri Ayurveda, which this website is mainly about, is my great passion. Being conscious, with all the good that nature brings, helping people on their way to themselves. Through lifestyle, healthy and pure living, pure food, in being in the present. Body and mind in balance: that's what it's all about. The rest will come by itself....

Mireille Heijltjes

Since I met Sri Sri Ayurveda in 2002, I have been increasingly impressed by the wisdom and accuracy of this health teaching. The advice I received turned out to be correct not only for myself, but also for others I have seen the sometimes absolutely astonishing results of a correct (pulse) diagnosis and a related advice regarding nutrition, herbal supplements and lifestyle. Ayurveda is an enrichment for life and an indispensable addition to the Western vision on health care. As a team member of Sri Sri Ayurveda I am very happy to be able to contribute to the application of Ayurveda in the Netherlands.

Tilly Gansner

My career started in 1984 at the (then still) AMRO bank. In 1991 I said goodbye to the bank to be there for the children. When they went to school, I went back to work in a large store where I quickly became assistant manager. In May 2017 I started at Shankara Europe BV, department Sri Sri Ayurveda. My job is very versatile. I mainly work in the field, assist the specialists and drive them to the locations, translate and do the consultation administration. I also host at the Panchakarma and if necessary assist at the head office. Sri Sri Ayurveda: a world that opened up for me! I had heard of it, but never experienced so closely that awareness of how you live, what you eat and how you deal with everything that comes your way has an influence on the quality of your life. I'm very happy to be part of a great team, to make Ayurveda better known and I'm very happy with the knowledge I'm gaining. I look forward to meeting you!







Liset Peersman

After working in the administration of a school and in the municipal taxes department of a medium-sized municipality, I worked for many years at a company specialising in archive systems. I started in 2009 at the administration of Art of Living and now for many years I work with great pleasure at the administration of Shankara Europe and Sri Sri Ayurveda. Occasionally I still assist in the ayurvedic consultations. For me Ayurveda means to have a vision of life that is close to nature and close to yourself. It is always nice to see when new clients, after their first pulse diagnosis, say in amazement: "how is it possible that the specialist understands what is wrong with me so precisely". And it's even better to see how they start to feel better over time.
