"Krakti" means force, strength or power in Sranantongo - the language of Suriname. The intention behind KRAKTI. is to facilitate safe spaces in which you can (re-)connect with your purest Self. We aim to work and integrate all levels of your Being: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual / energetic level.
We offer safe spaces with different tools, such as Yoga, breathwork, plant medicines, cognitive behavioural therapy and Soul Realignment. Even though you can find many tools here, we like to use them in the most simple way, and always with the intention to connect with our own purity. Less is definitely more.
How it began
Nancy founded KRAKTI. in the beginning of 2019 to start teaching Healing Yoga courses in Amsterdam. Her parents are from Surinamese descend - hence the choice to take a Surinamese word for her enterprise.
Nancy is calm and loves to laugh and joke. Her way of working is very simple and always with the intention is to let you connect to your inner-strength. To remind you, and let you feel and experience that everything you need is already inside of you. She therefore doesn't see herself as a "healer" but more as a "reminder" in your process. And often a reminder is all we need to see and feel how much love and joy we already have within us! And when we embody this love and joy, we will spread it out and all serve as a reminder for each other.
To change the world, you just need to live from a place of purity, authenticity and joy.

"A lot of what I'm doing at Krakti is thanks to my mother. Growing up she was the one that introduced me to things like meditation, yoga and energy work (reiki) from a young age. I however decided not to "deal" with all that and followed a very rational and scientific path.
After years of depression however, I knew I needed a change and I slowly started rediscovering all the things my mom had taught me, and more. I started meditating again and did a Yoga teacher training in India. I also entered the plant medicine world and slowly but surely through experience, I started to learn how these work.
I don't call myself a healer or a shaman. Mostly, because I really prefer staying away from any labels, titles and boxes as they do not contribute to inner peace. They create stories, patterns and images which in turn create limitations and take away our freedom.
Also, we are all healers and shamans - first and foremost for ourselves. Healing in my opinion, is to be able to live from our own Heart space / authenticity. And who can feel your Heart space and authenticity better than you? And when we allow ourselves to be authentic and true, we contribute to the healing of the world.
It's really not the title, outfit or certificate that makes you a healer or a shaman, it's the way you live your life.
My dream for the future is setting up a small scale safe space in nature, where permaculture, plant medicines, animals and people can meet in joy and peace.
