Yoga - Not an escape room

Yoga – not an escape room

Yoga is not here to let us escape from life. It is here to show us how to decipher what we believe life is. To see what is.  So many times people share their stories of how they cannot cope with the stresses of every day life, with what is percieved as a pushy boss, an inconsiderate co worker, a demanding family member, the commute to work and more if they did not have yoga. That is a beautiful thing to hear. It means that somewhere the heart, the mind, the body, the soul is finding space. Is finding release. Is discovering relief. And that zone of expanse you experience on your yoga mat is a magnificent place to start. It is, however, not an escape room. Don´t get me wrong – I also came to yoga with a broken body, a broken heart, a confused and somewhat broken mind. At least that is how I percieved it all back then in the year of 2000. Like so many others I also arrived on the …

30/10 Yoga Workshop – Your Body As Your Teacher

  Sunday 30/10 13.00 – 16.00 EVA`Z Yoga & Pilates, Heemstede Aches, pains, loss of energy, hyper activity, not enough sleep, too much sleep and more – it is our body letting us know that something is out of skew. Most of us know that already ;-). How do we practice and re-learn how to listen to what comes after that signal – our body telling us what the need is? Your body is your teacher. Always. And as all of us know – some teachers are gentle, guiding and nudging while others are bossy and pushy. Your body is all of that as a teacher, so that we don´t have to go to that place of uncomfort again. And most importantly, so that we can open up to that comfort that is actually possible anywhere, anytime. Welcome to join me in this workshop , for all levels of yogi´s, where we dive in to the theme ”Your Body As Your Teacher”. See you at  EVA´Z on the 30th of November! Investment: EUR 35 :- …

This thing we call ”Life”

  She is looking at me like she is wondering what the heck I am doing all day. Those clear, wise yellow eyes have shifted from the regular look of either curiousity or reaching out to concern. The beautiful thing is that meeting those eyes is all it takes for me to slow down. All it takes for me to rest her head in my two hands, looking in to her soul as she looks in to mine , wondering what the heck I AM doing all day. It is actually not about the doing, as the lists of stuff we need to do to make a living and live comfortably never ends. It is about how we do those things. In my mind, in my world, I was planning tonight´s yoga lesson – after having rushed through dishes, washing and vacuuming – totally focused on the task at hand. In Elsa´s mind I was totally lost. What she saw was a human who just ticked off one thing on the list , moving to …
