Yoga Workshop – Kings & Queens Edition

”Long live the Queen, Long live the King!” Well, we say ”Long live the Yogi” ;-)! And the yogi does.

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 …

Food and Mood seminar

Food & Mood

Sunday we held our 3rd seminar / Health Food Brunch in the Yummy, Fun And Healthy Living seminar series at MICA´s Coffee bar in Haarlem –  us being Stephanie from Appetit Voyage and me. We would like to thank all of you who attended as well as Annemarie and Sophie for another morning of amazing food, drinks and atmosphere at their beautiful coffee bar. The main idea behind these Health Food Brunches and Seminars is that people get together , bringing any questions they could possibly have when it comes to food, nutrition and health and we are there to answer them all. We start the morning off with a theme to get the conversations and questions going, while staying open to being flexible to what the need is of the participants. This time the kick off topic was ”Food & Mood”. Up until recently most research in the field of ”Food & Mood” has been focused on the brain – the hormones and chemicals there which are supporting or even creating the way we …

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 :- …

27/10 – Just for the guys ; Cooking & Nutritional workshop – “ManFood”

Food, beer, Vikings & Warriors 😉   We have been teaching cooking and nutritional workshops, holding seminars,  arranging trips for 6 years now under the umbrella of Yummy, Fun and Healthy Living. Having seen the trend in commercials the past years, in media, in training for you guys and more  a question arose as we were planning the next line of workshops, which was “what about the guys??!!” So, it is time for a workshop for the men out there! What about those trends, myths and ideas rolling around lately that we are all cavemen and need to eat like a caveman? And if we do, what did a caveman really eat? How did a caveman really live and move? What about the modern cave-men, the one who likes his beer – the Viking and Warrior-part, which came slightly later than the caveman? How can he live Healthily ever after while still having a Fun life? What food stuff makes a man feel like a man and what food stuff does the opposite? In this …

Yoga Workshop : The World Upside Down – A Different Perspective ;-)

As children we learn about life through play. As adults we quite often tend to take life too seriously. When we do, play is a great way to ”snap us out of it”, gives us a new perspective. And we all know there is nothing more refreshing than a different perspective. OK then, maybe a fresh sea breeze as well 😉 Welcome to join us in this playful Inversions Workshop – with a sea breeze if the weather allows, indoors if that breeze is too refreshing. You will have two internationally certified Vijnana Yoga teachers guiding you through our journey in a safe, professional, caring and also fun way to whatever inversion and new perspective your own destination may be this very Sunday morning.

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 …
