Recharge & Release - Winter Edition

Nov 28, 2020 2:15 PM

Connect with the core of your being and release tensions & emotions with the Winter edition of our Recharge & Release workshop led by Judith van der Klink. Move from Yang to Yin to Yoga Nidra and discover the therapeutic effects of yoga by stimulating your body’s energy lines (“meridians”) that relate to the Winter season. 

In this 2,5 hour workshop, Judith will guide you through an intelligent yin yang yoga sequence to support the movement of energy within your body and release any built up tensions & emotions. Winter is ruled by the water element, and so this Winter edition specifically focuses on the water element’s kidneys and urinary bladder meridians.

By stimulating these meridians throughout the practice, you will restore your resources, manage your reserves, release tension and remove (energetic and emotional) blockages. Especially, you’ll let go of things that do not serve you - such as fear. You’ll leave the workshop feeling lighter and positive.
 
The workshop will start off with a vinyasa inspired gentle Yang practice, moving mindfully on the rhythm of your breath. As the flow builds up, you will start to release tensions in the face, the shoulders, the spine and the hips. The sequence continues with a meditative Yin practice, designed to clear out blockages along the kidneys and urinary bladder meridians - to stimulate the flow of your vital energy. In this part of the practice you turn further inwards and allow everything to be as it is. This way your body continues to recharge and release tensions and now it begins to free emotions as well. You are invited to use as many props (blankets, pillows, bolsters, blocks, etc -) you need to come into the poses and arrive into your body, out of your head.
The workshop will end with a guided yoga nidra practice, allowing you to enter a deep restful state and have the therapeutic effects of this beautiful practice sink in.

All levels are welcome.

Omgaan met (hoog)gevoeligheid (Dutch only)

Dec 16, 2020 11:15 AM

Nederlandstalig (Dutch only, workshop in English on December 23)
Deelname in studio of online via Zoom

Sensitive ones,
Bring some gentleness into this weary world!
Shine on with courageous sensitivity!

You are the light bearers!
~ Jeff Foster ~

Herken je dit: je loopt in de stad en plots wordt je overvallen door een vermoeidheid of irritatie die je niet goed kunt plaatsen. Na afloop van de werkdag ben je doodmoe. Je raakt geïrriteerd zonder dat je eigenlijk weet waarom. Of je hebt een gesprek met iemand en na afloop voel je je volledig ‘leeg gezogen’.

Wanneer je een van bovenstaande situaties herkent, is de kans groot dat je (hoog)gevoelig bent voor energieën om je heen. Dat is prachtig, je bent een gevoelig mens, alleen... wij leren in onze maatschappij niet meer hoe hiermee om te gaan. En dan kan die gevoeligheid je danig uit balans brengen...

In de workshop Omgaan met (hoog)gevoeligheid ontdek je de impact die gevoeligheid en hooggevoeligheid hebben op jouw leven. Je leert:

  • Wat gevoeligheid en hooggevoeligheid is vanuit energetisch perspectief.
  • Wat de belangrijkste kenmerken zijn van (hoog)gevoeligheid.
  • Waar je tegenaan kunt lopen als je niet weet dat je (hoog)gevoelig bent en wat je daar aan kunt doen.
  • Waarom (hoog)gevoeligheid onrust en stress veroorzaakt.
  • Waarom gronding en verbinding zo belangrijk zijn.
  • Hoe je rust in je hoofd kunt creëren.
  • Waarom je als (hoog)gevoelige vaak een andere rol hebt in het leven dan je misschien denkt.

'Van hooggevoelig naar hoogbewust!
Dankjewel Germaine voor de mooie ervaring en de geweldige inzichten!! X'

Ook deel ik de Banden van Kracht met je, een energetische bescherming vanuit het Inca Sjamanisme die je leven lang bij je blijft. Zodat je kunt ontspannen in het moment en je jouw beschermingsmechanismen - die beschermen, maar vaak ook beperken - kunnen oplossen. Zodat je kunt stoppen met 'overleven' en eindelijk kunt gaan Leven... met een hoofdletter L!

Na deze workshop sta je steviger in je schoenen en kun je beter omgaan met de prikkels om je heen. Je kunt beter in je kracht blijven en daarmee in balans. Een absolute aanrader voor (hoog)gevoelige mensen…

Managing (high) sensitivity

Dec 23, 2020 11:15 AM

Dutch spoken workshop on December 16
Participation in studio or online via Zoom
Price: 
EUR 97 (Early Bird EUR 77 until December 5)

Sensitive ones,
Bring some gentleness into this weary world!
Shine on with courageous sensitivity!
You are the light bearers!

~ Jeff Foster ~

Do you recognize this: you're walking in the city and suddenly you're overwhelmed by a tiredness or irritation that you can't place properly. At the end of the workday you are dead tired. You become irritated without actually knowing why. Or you have a conversation with someone and afterwards you feel completely 'sucked out'.

When you recognize one of the above situations, there is a good chance that you are (highly) sensitive to energies around you. That is wonderful, you are a sensitive person, but... in our society we no longer learn how to deal with this. And then that sensitivity can become a burden and throw you off balance...

In the workshop How to manage (high) sensitivity you will discover the impact that sensitivity and high sensitivity have on your life. You will learn:

  • What sensitivity and high sensitivity is from an energetic perspective.
  • What are the most important characteristics of (high) sensitivity
  • What you can run into if you do not know that you are (highly) sensitive and what you can do about it.
  • Why (high) sensitivity causes anxiety and stress.
  • Why grounding and connection are so important.
  • How you can create peace in your head.
  • Why you, as a (highly) sensitive person, often have a different role in life than you might think.

From highly sensitive to highly conscious!
Thank you Germaine for the beautiful experience and great insights! X'

I also share the Bands of Power with you, an energetic protection from Inca Shamanism that stays with you all your life. So that you can relax in the moment and dissolve your protective mechanisms - which protect, but often also restrict you. So that you can stop 'surviving' and finally start Living...with a capital L!

After this workshop you will feel more empowered and more capable to deal with the world around you. You will be able to stay centered, in your power and thus in balance. An absolute must for (highly) sensitive people...

Investment: EUR 129

“I've always been a strong believer in our capacity to heal naturally and I've been searching for that magic ever since I was little. Yoga rooted firmly in my life and I started teaching classes at a very young age, as spreading that great magic is one of my passions. My curiosity was driving me into other beautiful natural healing methods; such as holistic massage and natural nutrition. But it wasn't until I found myself in a bikini, sitting between little ice cubes still buzzing on oxygen, that I really knew with every cell in my vibrant and extremely alive body that this (simple, yet invigorating!!) method is THE SHIT that really works; always in all ways. I never take myself too serious again.”
- Lilian Vrolijk

Reiki 1 course - start day

Jan 13, 2021 2:00 PM

Reiki 1 - Connect to your energy flow with Elna Kempers
Learn to give Reiki to yourself and your loved-ones.

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that restores the balance between our mind (thinking) and our body (feeling). Reiki works energetically and is based on the simple principle that we are all guided by an unseen universal life energy. This life energy is everywhere and within everybody; it’s given at birth. However, the channel through with the life energy flows is quickly closed in the first years of life. During the Reiki 1* course this channel is reopened and activated, allowing the energy to flow freely again. You will learn how to feel and connect to that flow of energy and how to give Reiki to yourself and your loved-ones to lift blockages, release stress and feel more balanced. This course is tailored for beginners - whether you’re totally new to Reiki or have had many sessions - and is taught in a relaxed format over three afternoons. There are a maximum of 6 spots to ensure individual attention. 

Dates group 1:
Wednesday January 13, from 12.30 - 17.30 hrs
Wednesday February 10, from 12.30 - 16.30 hrs
Wednesday February 24, from 12.30 - 16.30 hrs

* This course includes both Reiki (which is described as Earth energy), and Seichem (which includes the healing frequencies of Water (deep emotional healing), Air (spiritual connection) and Fire (transformation)). This combination makes for a powerful therapeutic tool that is easy to use by all levels.

Teacher:
Elna Kempers is an experienced Reiki Master, trained to teach Tera-Mai Reiki/Seichem I. She believes that, by its simplicity, Reiki is a practice that can very easily be incorporated into daily life, and she feels honoured to pass on the Reiki attunements to others.
Next to Reiki, Elna is also specialised in dofna (discharge of neural aspects) and foot reflex zone therapy.

Veda Ela: The Power Of Gentleness- workshop

Mar 31, 2021 8:00 PM

Difficult times require profound practices based on equanimity & resilience. To help us to stay centered, let go of what not longer serve us and act from patience and adaptability. In this workshop we will explore the quality of gentleness towards ourselves and others through Yin & Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra.

Through Yin we get in touch with our feminine energy to find the edge, surrender and be still.
Restorative yoga teaches us the art of resting and being gentle to ourselves and therefore to others.
During the practice of Yoga Nidra (also call “yogi sleep”, a state of hypnosis) we plant the seed of intention: what we would like to manifest in our lives.
Experience the gentleness of being in a place where you can physically, mentally and spiritually relax, recharge and heal.

This workshop is open to Yoga teachers, therapists, body workers and yoga students of all levels.

Veda Ela: The Practice Of Compassion - workshop

Apr 10, 2021 2:30 PM

The practice of self enquiry and compassion towards ourselves & to others is a part of the foundations of Yoga. It brings forth the entire energy of our being with love and courage.
In this workshop we melt away tensions and emotions first  through kind and soft dance and free movement. Paying attention to the sensations of breath to create radical presence.

Restorative Yoga poses focus on healing through rest and the profound experience of being in contrast to doing.
The practice of Yin yoga together with affirmations enhances our intention of being compassionate.
Meditation is the art of listening inwardly for guidance in the midst of daily life.
With “Lovingkindness” -a meditation from buddhist back round- we find compassion in ourselves and spread it to others.
This workshop is open to yoga teachers, therapists, body workers and yoga students who would like to integrate the quality of compassion in their professional and in daily life.
