Looking into the mirror

Personal Coaching & Teaching


To give classes to groups and put them on Youtube is just by way of introduction. As the application of the teachings in life must be adapted to the student, the true teaching is personal.


Personal coaching means to discover together the path that suits the personal desires, needs, abilities and duties of the student. It does not matter whether you just want some practical advise on personal issues or seek to enhance your already deep meditation practice. It is also not about only sticking to one teacher - you can have as many as you want. It is about finding together certain spiritual practices that make growth more easy, assuring that no steps are skipped in the process so that the transformation is durable. Anyhow, without your cooperation nothing can happen, so you are always the one to decide. I can only act as a mirror.


Also in terms of how often you want to connect and when, you are entirely free. Who knows, one session may give you enough opportunity for change to last a year. Or you might find a more regular connection really valuable in your life, and book that in the online agenda. Or you might find nothing specific of value to you, which is entirely possible and acceptable. This is all about You.

I cannot promise what such more personal coaching might bring you. I can promise to be there for you. Whatever understanding, experience or energy I have to help you on your path, is at your service. I especially hope to help people find more happiness, healing and deeper meditation.







Personal coaching from a distance with videocalls

Fortunately, modern communication technologies provide the means to also have a more personal relationship with my students worldwide. Especially video calls through skype, whatsapp, facebook, etc... can allow us to communicate in a personal way that somewhat approaches the old-school one-on-one approach.

Personal coaching in Belgium

For those living sufficiently nearby the city of Gent where I live, a meeting can be arranged. Also foreign students have visited me in Belgium before, usually when anyhow visiting Europe. Contact me by phone at +32 475 73 32 78, or through my Facebook page.





















Leela is the ancient vedic name for the theater of life. Life in all its forms is an illusion behind which we can find the ultimate truth of pure Being. Yet life is also a divine theater, a spiritual game played by us, the actors. Yoga allows us to hold on to the bliss of truth while playing the game. And also this yoga is a game, which we can only take seriously if we do not take ourselves and this game too seriously. That is the meaning of Leela Yoga, nothing more, nothing less. So, Leela Yoga is a vision on yoga and also a name for a simple organisation that allows me to bring this vision into practice... more about Leela Yoga & Peter Marchand

  in sweet memory
of Harish Johari


As the destination is the same for all, it is easy to make the error of assuming that the path must be just as universal.

The attachment that happens in the pursuit of happiness is the main source of unhappiness.

Don't think of going somewhere, because this somewhere will come along with you wherever you go, as you are already there.

Yoga requires unity between enjoyment and suffering, between bhoga and yoga, even between attachment and detachment.

How can anyone be "good" without a choice between good and bad?

While the mind creates the illusion of the universe through the senses, the intellect creates the illusion of understanding it.

When our day has been entirely ego-centered, then our meditation will probably have similar poor quality.

When the focus on the self is held strongly enough, the flow of kundalini energy happens on its own, naturally.

Tiptoe inside, don't make a sound, don't scare away that which cannot be found.

Enlightenment is nothing more or less than the final level of the game of life.
