Flim followed a yoga teacher training programme in the late 1980s at the Saswitha Stichting voor Yoga en Wijsbegeerte in Rotterdam (300 hours) and over her 30 years of teaching yoga, she has witnessed much change in the yoga world, from cult to hype. The founder of Flims Yoga Studio and later Center Open Field for Yoga & Health, since 2009 she has been teaching a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Intensive based on the teachings of Krishnamacharya, his son Desikachar, and Sivananda. Her yoga teachers include of Pattabi Jois, Shiva Rae, Donna Fahri and Donna Holleman.
When cancer sufferers came on her path, Flim found that with yoga practices and psychological support she could reduce their suffering and improve their quality of life. She went on to qualify to teach two courses to support this group, Yoga Thrive (developed as a collaboration between the University of Calgary, Canada), and Susy Hately Aldous, and Cureyoga. Through her work in this therapeutic field of yoga she is recognized by the International association of Yoga Therapists, CIAYT.
Recently she put her studio aside to dedicate her time to deepen her own practice while offering workshops and retreats at various locations and to share her knowledge to develop yoga teachers so they can pass authentic yoga on to generations to come.
