Violet Borneman

Violet Borneman studied at TU Delft and obtained her master’s degree in life science and technology. Besides 17 years of experience as research scientist in biochemistry, she has more than 25 years of experience in the sports industry.

Violet combined her work in biochemistry and running her own yoga studio, Born4Yoga, with studying yoga therapy at The Yoga Therapy Institute.

Currently, Violet is both our science and research teacher at The Yoga Therapy Foundation 100 hour and all the biomedical modules, and the student supervisor and senior student at The Yoga Therapy Institute. Her passion is to not only to help the students to learn how and motivate them to read scientific articles, but also to help clients to find their strength within and provide additional support where traditional medical attention might be lacking.

Violet’s other areas of expertise include sport-induced health issues, seasonal depression and burnout.

At the school, Violet is known for making scientific research accesible, easy to understand and fun for all the students training to become yoga therapists.

Violet Borneman’s dream is to combine science and yoga one day, by starting her own research group, and scientifically prove the effects of yoga on our health to the world.
