About me

jolande-penninks-coachMy name is Jolande Yashoda Penninks, a devoted yogi who loves people and animals. I received the Sanskrit name Yashoda from Swami Satchidananda the Woodstock Guru, when I was initiated by him in Yogaville in 1999 as an Integral Yoga Teacher.

I am a seasoned businesswoman and have had my own business since I was twenty-three. In 1988 I moved to the Algarve and then partly lived in both countries, Holland and Portugal. However, something was always missing in my life and more and more I wondered about the reason for my existence here on earth.

For the past twenty years, I have been actively engaged in spiritual growth, philosophy and quantum physics and have been able to meet modern teachers who still inspire me today. Slowly, in addition to my work, I started to help family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances in a playful way, and soon others came who wanted to talk to me and that is how Counseling Brabant and Counseling Algarve were born on the sidelines.

Based on respect and equality, after all we are all one, I can also teach you how to be happy despite whatever happens in your life. I give you the handles through conversations and exercises so that you come back to the good vibration of who you are meant to be.

This is how we were born, pure and positive, and you too have the strength to be happy. Change your life and do it NOW, ‘Enough is Enough’!
