Yoga Workshop – Spring Flow @ EVA`Z

Spring has arrived! Time for a Spring Flow workshop to align our bodies, minds and entire system with this fresh full-of-promises-and-expectations season, while leaving the winter sleep behind. Spring is a transition, often moving between the two extremes of storms and almost windless  summerlike days. Your body is cleaning , leaving you quite often with a spring cold , lethargy plus other downers . So let´s aid our bodies in making that cleansing process smoother by transitioning mindfully and aware while opening up our hearts, minds and eyes to the breathtaking flowery season we are in! In this workshop we will flow, we will relax, we will breathe, we will put in some work, we will learn, we will share, we will leave stuff behind, we will create space for the new, we will align. All levels of yogi´s are welcome! Bring a friend!   When? Zat / Sat 8/4, 13.30 – 16.30 Where ? EVA`Z Yoga & Pilates, Herenweg 89, Heemstede Investment ?

Yoga Workshop in Haarlem, 3/3

Yoga Workshop – Sun Salutations, Flow, Seuqencing Friday,  March 3rd, 18.30 – 21.30, Haarlem Sun salutations. There seem to be so many out there… And on top of that; How the h….k do I make mindful transitions from one asana/pose to the next ? How do I find strength in Chaturanga / Plank? How can I love Urdvha Mukha Svanasana / Up Dog and reach those relaxed shoulders, open chest and strong legs all in one? Adho Mukha / Downward Dog what? How is it actually supposed to feel? What is it good for? Where is the correlation between flow in yoga asanas/ postures and in the life I live? Is it all just a myth or can I find my own truth and path in there? Yes, pranayama / flowing breath = physical strength, mental focus and peace of mind in one. I have heard that. But how? Home practice…. Seems like such a hurdle to roll that mat out at home… How do I start ? So many questions… and you might have …
