Shaking Medicine, Dance, Zumba, Hatha, Yin Yoga and Flow Yoga Teacher
Joeke Hoeboer has been loving and living dance and movement since she was very little. When she was twenty one years old she started practising Yoga whilst she was living in New Zealand. After one year of practising she finished her first course in ‘Yin Yoga’ in Amsterdam.
After she finished the course she started teaching Yin and Flow Yoga classes combined with Zumba Dance workouts and a mixture of pilates/yoga and Tai Chi in a local gym in Haarlem, The Netherlands. She also created her own workshop called ‘Spirit Dance’ where participants are invited to move their bodies in their own way and to express themselves creatively, guided by sound and music.
After a year of fulltime teaching she packed her bags and flew to India for her next (deepening) Yoga course, based on the subtle bodies with a mixture of Yin and Hatha Yoga. She learned new skills in India and shared them in Bali on a daily basis for three months.
After Bali she flew to Australia and came for the first time in contact with Shaking Medicine when she attended a class from Dr. Keith Motes in Mullumbimby. She got very excited about this specific style of Yoga. Especially because she loves to express and to move emotions and stuck energy through the body with great and powerful force.
In June 2019 Joeke completed her first teacher training in Shaking Medicine and immediately started teaching classes in Mullumbimby after the course. She is now based in The Netherlands and soon to be sharing the Sacred Shaking Medicine with the European tribe.

Shaking Medicine, Dancer, Photographer, Bachelor in Marketing and Sustainability
Juliette is originally from the French Alps and grew up surrounded by the majestic snowy mountain tops and luscious green forests.
She has always felt a strong connection with movement. From a young age, she was dancing ballet and contemporary, as well as practicing circus and gymnastics. Over the years, her connection to movement both as a performing art and as a healing practice has grown stronger and she continuously explores new ways of connecting with herself, others and our Mother Nature.
Her practice of Yoga began after a serious back injury as she was looking for a way to heal. After seven years or so of practicing Yoga, she stumbled across the practice of Shaking Medicine while traveling in Australia. Shortly after her first class, she found herself in the Shaking Medicine Teacher Training. The power of the medicine felt so tangible. She now teaches classes regularly in Montreal, Canada. Her other pursuits include meditation, AcroYoga, ecstatic dance, Balinese massage, conscious relating and perma-culture.
