Founder, CEO and Master Teacher Trainer for Bungee Super Fly, Aerial Yoga Netherlands and Aerial Therapy Netherlands.
Janneke started developing Aerial Yoga in the Netherlands 12 years ago, she never imagined how her ideas would grow into the world famous brand. It was the ultimate combination of her passion and experience as an aerial acrobat, dancer and yoga instructor. She thought, 'I can do this all my life, anyone can do this! “How nice to feel like being an aerial acrobat, to experience freedom and air, to make it accessible to a wide audience and to awaken the playful child in everyone.”
Over the years, she has noted that the effectiveness of the various dimensions of aerial yoga has enabled her students to experience physical, mental, and emotional release and strengthening. As a result, she has recognized that so many people have benefited in different ways from playing with the gravity and balance aspects of the canvas and body.
In the meantime, however, Janneke had also founded the company Bungee Super FlyⓇ which took off enormously. The concept of creating a fitness workout performed by elements used in the aerial acrobat industry, allowing all individuals to perform in the same way and undergo intensive training, quickly became internationally recognized. Thus, the company has expanded internationally, hoping that Aerial Yoga and Aerial Therapy will do the same.

Talks from experience
“Not everything went the way it should have gone. But the most important thing is how I handled it. I created Aerial Yoga after my burnout and it has prevented it from happening again. It has most effectively helped me to come out of the burnout stronger with the canvas (and the Bungee Super FlyⓇ). After that I discovered endless benefits of the cloth and have been promoting the importance of mental and physical well-being ever since using an aerial acceleration tool."
