New lesson / nieuwe les – Yoga en hormonetherapie

Yoga en hormonetherapie  De tijd met hormonetherapie is vaak overweldigend. Je komt naar huis met en waslijst van potentiële bijwerkingen na je eerste bezoek bij de verpleging oncologië over die informatie van de hormonetherapie. Hun hebben daar ook goed uitgelegd dat sommige geen een bijwerking voelen, anderen heelveel en alles tussenin – je weet dus heelemaal niet wat je wel of niet mee gaat maken. Deze lessen zijn gericht op het versterken van alles wat de hormonetherapie zoude kunnen verzwakken – fysiek, mentaal een geestelijk. Er is heelveel die wij zelf kunnen doen om sterk door deze perioede te gaan en ook sterk daar uit te komen. Het enige is dat het ons vaak niet wordt verteld. Tot nu toe ;-). In deze lessen leren wij ook wat wij dagelijks zelf  t´huis kunnen doen om alles zo soepel mogelijk voor onszelf te laten lopen. Er is ook voldoende tijd en ruimte in elk les om de helende kracht van yoga te ervaren. De lessen zijn 1,5 uur. Wij werken met alle aspekten van yoga – …

New lesson / nieuwe les – Yoga tijdens en na borstkanker, in Haarlem

Yoga tijdens en na borstkanker  Deze lessen zijn gericht op de tijd die je doormaakt tijdens en na de (borst) kanker diagnose, behandeling/en en herstel.

Chocolate breakfast muffins

I made these muffins Saturday – orginially from a recipe from a Dutch Paleo magazine –  , posting pics on Instagram as I was baking along. Many of you have contacted me via DM on Instagram, Facebook Messenger, What´s App and more for the recipe the past few days, so instead of typing it out a zillion of times I thought I´d share it here ;-). You need; 250 gr almond butter 2 eggs (for a vegan version, soak 30 gr of chiaseed in 3 dl of water for 15 minutes and use the whole “gunk” instead of eggs) 3 tbspns raw cacao powder 1 tspn vanilla powder 3 ripe bananas 1,5 tspn baking powder 100 gr of 90 – 100 % dark chocolate, chopped up   How to; Heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade. Add all the ingredients, aside from the dark choclate, and mix them in your kitchen machine or hand held mixer. Stir in the chopped up chocolate. Set the muffin liners (you can make your own from parchment paper as …

Breakfast ginger banana smoothie

Some days all you want to do is have a very quick breakfast and quite often for me that is when a smoothie or a chia pudding comes in to play. This smoothie is not just filling and yummy, you can also make extra and have it as one of your snacks later during the day. And it is the perfect post training snack as well. Just throw all of this in the blender; 2 bananas 1,5 dl water 1 tspn cinnamon fresh ginger, as much or as little as you´d like 200 gr strawberries (or any other berries ;-), it is strawberry season here right now, so….) 1,5 dl oat, soya or almond milk 2 tspns soy or rice protein powder   Swish! Enjoy!

Hands ´n feet ´n winter

Winter. Water. Cold. Yin. Kidneys. Hibernation. Recuperation. Rest. Movement. Stamina. Plenty of words to describe the season and element we are in. I just read in a centuries old “Farmers Wisdom Calendar” that if the old year freezes together with the new year it will be strong winter. A strong winter. What does that mean actually? A lot of us might shrug and think “uh, that means a long, cold, winter with frozen hands, feet and nose”. Other’s might think “yeah, that means a long, crisp, ice and snow clad couple of months ahead with loads of fresh air enjoy ice skating, skiing and sledding with the kids down the slopes”. I would like to think of it as simply “strong winter”. Winter – with all it’s cold, ice, rain or snow, biting winds, somewhat darker days and longer evenings, with me feeling strong. Strong winter. The planet needs this season to be cold, to be “real” to be in balance here in the Northern Hemisphere. We are not separate from the planet. So, how …
