Who we are
We’re Floortje and Willemijn Laan, the two entrepreneurial sisters behind rasalila! We founded our studio in 2009 to create a place where people can come together, relax, feel empowered, and grow. And grow it has! Today, rasalila is a one-of-a-kind studio where we’re always pushing the boundaries of conscious movement, living, and connection. From AcroYoga to PoleFlow, Aerial Arts to Feminine Arts, we always bring our students new and exciting classes. And we’re also the proud home of the Amsterdam School of Burlesque! We’re always looking for the latest trends and innovations in movement and conscious living and constantly updating our class offerings. So if you’re looking for an empowering, feels-like-home studio where you can express your unique self, you know where to find us! Our team of passionate professionals and our sisterly bond make rasalila a truly special place, and we can’t wait for you to experience it yourself. See you soon at rasalila!
For years I was looking with admiration (and sometimes with some envy) at the passion and love that Floortje has for everything that has to do with dance and movement.
However, I am less comfortable in the (literal) ‘spotlight’, and the concrete making and implementing of plans and dreams makes me happy.
Several times we have ‘daydreamed “of starting our own business together.
All these daydreams had one thing in common; we wanted to combine all things we enjoy and have a passion for and let others be a part of this. rasalila is like a dream come true!
I am grateful for the collaboration with my sister Willemijn. She makes it possible to give sense to my existence. A life where I seek happiness, faith and connection.
