a dance of balance
Life to me is a dance of balance. And dance, yoga, movement meditation and music can help us enjoy and embrace the full range of life's tidal waves.
Yoga and dance help us to connect with our inner compass and joy! to nourish a healthy, honest and loving connection with yourself and others in this dance of life. It is a loving and deepening conversation with yourself that I warmly invite you into. I teach Yin and Hatha yoga and a self developed Yoga Dance Flow.
Besides the classes I also offer private yoga and business yoga and guide Ecstatic Dance events in both ceremony and music as a DJ.
Yin yoga feels like a home-coming in your body. It focuses more on relaxation, being present within yourself and integrating meditation in everything that moves us. It provides a deeper acces to our body than most other yoga styles which helps to release blockages and (re)connect to our inner flow, leaving our bodies nourished, softened and revitalised.
The Yoga Dance Flow takes you on a journey from deep stillness into dynamic movement in a fluid combination of meditation, yoga and dance. It is a movement meditation class I designed to experience movement from a place of stillness within and play with the balance of silence and sound.
The flow starts with meditative practices that connect us with our breath and body and gradually evolves into more dynamic asanas which warm us up for a gently guided, improvised, dynamic dance flow. At the end of each class we integrate our practice with a gentle cool-down and Savasana. The flow is partially inspired by Gabrielle Roth's five rhythms flow and is at times supported by live music.
Hatha yoga is a classic style of yoga that combines the practice of compassion and meditation with the practice of clarity of action. Hatha is translated as ha meaning 'sun' and tha meaning 'moon'. It is a path of yoga that focusses on creating balance and uniting opposites. The asanas support a development of both flexibility and strenght of our bodies as well as a balance of surrender and determination in each pose.
Essensual yoga is a yoga class that takes you on an inner journey into your heart through deepening of the breath, awakening the senses, combining asanas with flowing elements of dance and tantric practices to relax, unblock and boost your energy.
