Recharge & Release - Autumn Edition W

Sep 26, 2020 2:15 PM

Lift your energy and release tensions & emotions with the Autumn 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 Autumn season. 
 

What to expect

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. This Autumn edition specifically focuses on the meridians of the Stomach and its paired organ the Spleen, both associated with the element of earth and the emotions of anxiety and stress. By stimulating these meridians throughout the practice, you will restore balance, detox the organ systems, nourish the digestive system, release tension from spine and hips and remove (energetic) blockages. Especially, you’ll let go of things that do not serve you - such as worry, anxiety, and overthinking. You’ll leave the workshop feeling lighter and positive.
 

The workshop will start off with a vinyasa inspired Yang practice, moving mindfully on the rhythm of your breath. As the flow builds up, gradually your body starts to open up and generate energy. 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 stomach-spleen meridian - 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.

Free 3 Day Ayurveda Cleanse

Sep 27, 2020 12:00 PM

Join our free 3-day online Ayurveda Kitchari Cleanse starting on Sunday, September 27th.

 
Why this cleanse?
 
Ayurveda is all about staying in balance, staying in tune with our body and aligning ourselves with nature. 
 
During daily life we build up all kind of toxins in the body by polluted air, toxins in our environment, our general lifestyle and (poor) eating habits. When there are big transitions within nature and the seasons (like moving from Summer to Fall),  a cleanse can help to move with that transition with more ease, get rid of built up toxins and give our digestive system a reset. 
 
What is a Kitchari Cleanse?
 
A Kitchari Cleanse is a traditional Ayurvedic cleanse that is a gentle way of detoxing the body. You will eat a mono diet of kitchari* for a few days, in this case 3 days, meaning for breakfast / lunch / dinner.
 
*Kitchari is a vegetarian bean & rice dish with optional spices and veggies. It’s very nourishing for the body, the bean/rice combi give a full protein while giving your digestive system a rest. 
 
What is the schedule?
 
Monday 21 September: from 20.30 - 21.00 hrs (CET)
We’ll host a free Zoom webinar to answer any questions you may have.
 
Friday 25 September and Saturday 26 September 
In preparation of the Kitchari Cleanse, we advice to eliminate meat, caffeine, alcohol, refined sugar and processed foods from your diet. This is optional but it will give your cleanse a little bit more impact.
 
Sunday 27 September, Monday 28 September and Tuesday 29 September
We will do the 3-day Kitchari Cleanse, this means we’ll be eating kitchari for breakfast, lunch & dinner for 3 days in a row.
 
We advice you to cook the kitchari fresh 3 times a day as this tastes the best and will provide the most prana (the fresher the better). However if due time you want to cook 1 time for the whole day that is fine too, that’s totally up to your schedule. 
During these days we will share pictures & stories on Instagram to inspire you. You can comment on these posts and share with us your thoughts, struggles & experiences. 
 
Upon registration, you’ll receive a pdf with all the details, the kitchari recipe (including a grocery list) and our favourite pre-tox recipes to help you to get the most out of it. 
 
Wednesday 30 September and Thursday 1 October
It’s time to start eating normal but again we advice to leave meat, caffeine, alcohol, refined sugar and processed foods from your diet a little longer. 
 
 
Sign up here because cleansing is so much better together.

Reiki course - start group 1

Oct 21, 2020 12:30 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 21 October, from 12.30 - 17.30 hrs
Saturday 14 November, from 12.30 - 16.30 hrs
Wednesday 18 November, 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.
