Sun 13/1 10.30 – 13.30 Studio Wilhelminapark, Wilhelminapark 28, Haarlem € 35 :- pp or  € 50:-for 2 people ( i.e. € 25 :- pp ) The new year has already started and as I am writing this text on January 2nd I am packing my bags for a week’s yoga retreat by and with my teacher Orit Sen Gupta. It is the 13th year of going to Steyl, just outside Venlo for a weeks immersion, landing and going deep the first week of the new year for me – meeting Vijnana Yoga Teachers from the whole world, some there for the 25th year.  As stoked as I am about going on this retreat for myself, just as stoked I am about teaching this workshop as soon as I am back. Teaching a workshop this close to having attended a retreat means the teachings and the depth from the retreat always flows right through.  So, as I am wishing you all a Warm From Within New Year, I am wishing you a gentle start of the New …

Yoga Nidra with huskies

Yoga Nidra, which means Yogic Sleep, is an ancient practice which allows you to dive deep in to your subconcious to essentially clean up what´s there. The practice is a guided relaxation in meditation as you lie on your back, taking you through the levels of conciousness to the place of deep sleep –  while remaining concious. Huskies?  Some years ago circumstances forced me to bring the husky ladies  in to Yoga Nidra class when I was teaching one evening. The husky ladies – Akasha and Elsa – joined in the relaxation and did their own part of  guiding the practice. Since that one day in March of 2014 they join the Yoga Nidra on demand by the students.  Modern science has proved that we go in to state of heart and brain coherence in an instant in the presence of animals we have close contact with. And the same happens with the animals. So Yoga Nidra with Huskies is a beautiful practice for us as well as the huskies. Warm welcome to this Yoga Nidra with Huskies …

Come join us in Devon this summer!

“Writing Me- Treat” GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT OF A   ‘WRITING ME-TREAT’ – DEVON, ENGLAND, 7-12 JULY 2018 –   Isn´t time you gave yourself a treat?   Imagine the bliss of waking up and falling asleep to birdsong and the babbling stream, spending time walking in unspoilt lanes and meadows as you learn a little of what many adore about Devon.   Join a small group of other word-lovers on this enchanting five-night retreat, deep in a secret valley that can only be accessed down what I call The Rabbit Hole – a gentle, bowered lane that tumbles down to the clutch of stone cottages around a stream. You get to stay in a room of your own in delightful Barleycorn, Quack or Crownwheel Cottage. This retreat deliberately coincides with the Ways With Words Literary Festival at Dartington Hall and we will make an excursion there. We will also visit the bohemian town of Totnes and, of course, the beach.   This ‘Me-Treat’ is led by much-published author, journalist, poet and mentor, Jo Parfitt, who …

Yoga Workshop 9/3 @ YogaCentrum Hoofddorp

Stilte en Kracht in de Storm Soms voelt het als of je in een storm bent terecht gekomen, of in een wasprogramma dat vast lijkt te zitten op centrifugeren. Yoga geeft je de gereedschappen om de stilte én de kracht te vinden in de storm, om van centrifugeren door naar wasverzachter te gaan. In deze workshop gaan wij focusen op om juist de stilte en de kracht in de storm te vinden. Fysiek, energiek en mentaal. En het maakt niet uit of dit je eerste kennismaking is met yoga, of je 23415e keer – je bent van harte welkom! Ik kijk er echt naar uit om je te zien in het Yoga Centrum op vrijdag 9 maart! Van harte welkom! Cecilia

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 …
