5/11 – Yoga Workshop @ EVA`Z, Heemstede

– ”Dogs, Wolves and People” 😉 So many of the yoga postures are named after animals and nature.So many of the breathing excercises are named after nature and the elements. So many of us people feel we are missing nature in the busy city  – at the same time forgetting that we ARE nature. This breathing, moving, talking body of ours is nature. Nature changes, the seasons change, the body changes. Every moment there is change,  yet we seem to do our best to resist instead of getting in to the gist of this ever changing nature of life. Why J ? In this workshop we will go in to depth in to some of the excercises – breathing / pranayama, postures / asanas, meditation and relaxation / savasana that will bring us back to the nature of who we are, being able to move with the changes . Excercies that you can bring home and use whenever you´d like. All levels of yogis, wolves, dogs, trees and people are welcome ;-). Warm welcome! Sign …

Mindful transitions

When the seasons change, especially from the spring into summer and from the summer into the fall we seem to get more out of balance than during other seasonal transitions. It might even feel like at times you’ve been hit with a metal rod on your head while at other times you find yourself looking for both inner and outer bearings to get through this period. Our first routine response when the more unpleasant sensations are arriving is to push them away. But since we live under the law of gravity we are also being made painfully aware of that anything we push away usually comes back and hits twice as hard from all the momentum gained. So, why not just grab that metal rod and check it out? What is it? What is it trying to show us, to teach us? First of all, we are transitioning into winter. It would not be wise to be pushed from the warmth, the openness, the flowery dresses and brightly colored surf shorts straight into icy cold, …

Relaxing the Body, Quieting the Mind

Listen

Spring is officially upon us and before we rejoice in all the energy the sun brings us, before we feel it rushing through our bodies and minds filling us with a tremendous intensity of inspiration and motivation, there is always that time of transitioning in to spring from winter. Yes, we do tend to forget that. Every year anew we find ourselves sitting there wondering why we are overcome with fatigue and sluggishness, feeling slightly chilly, eyes watering, itchy nose, wrapped in a huge blanket while turning our cheeks to face the sunlight with a craving for that fluttering spring energy to just kick start itself. Spring, the season of the element Wood, the season of the Liver, the Gallbladder, of Green. The season when the body wakes up again to take in the beauty of life as it re invents itself right before our very eyes. Being the language nerd I am have for a long time been fascinated with the origin and meaning of words in relation to what they can really tell …

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 ?

Mind Detox

Detox is a word which has become almost as common as the word “Iphone” in our every day lingo. Even though we might not know all the exact down-to-the-nano-particle-of-certain-molecules-or-cells-details-and-functions of neither the word “Detox” nor the word “Iphone” , we are all aware that both words are necessary for our survival ( ? ). Or at least we know that one is – the other we most likely feel like it would be pretty difficult to survive without. Well aware of the fact that Detoxification is the process in our bodies which rids our system of toxins we have become more and more picky about what we put in our mouths, on our skin, the quality of the air which we breathe in and more. But what about the things we let in to our minds through the gateways of our senses? And what about the stuff that comes out of our mouths as we speak? Is the music you are playing, the books, magazines and blogs you are reading, the movies you are watching, the people …
