With all that I do, I'm dedicated to spread love and light, far and wide.
While I'm at it, I help others connect with just that within themselves.

Sanne van der Ploeg


I'm a self defense teacher, trained by the grandmaster and founder of this specific self defense system. I chose to host and teach Self Defense Courses for women, for in my heart I've always felt called to empower women. I practice Kurodaiya - which is the first form in martial arts relying on minimal contact, force and movement - since October 2020. I currently wear a yellow band when I'm in the dojo.

Outside of the dojo, I have full focus on my lifelong journey of self-actualization. While I'm journeying, I have the privilege to guide others who are on the path of personal and spiritual development as well in 1-on-1 guidance sessions. My guidance is based on inner realizations rather than external education.

Other than that, I am the founder of the platform The Art of Connected Living. If you're into personal development and spirituality, you're gonna love it there! Receive guidance and inspiration through many free offerings, blog posts and spoken poetry.
