Vegan oven pancakes

“Just trust the process”. “Be open to everything”. Yes, this morning was one of those mornings that those two expressions made me look wider than what was in front of me and to my eyes in that moment wasn’t working. I was about to make these totally yummy almond butter bars for breakfast. I had about 30 minutes and a busy day ahead. Getting the recipe out, starting with adding the chia seeds to the water for the “chia eggs”, then switching on the oven while I was sipping my freshly made matcha oat milk latte I could hardly wait to taste these yummy bars after meditation. You see, that was the plan – let the almond butter bars bake in the oven as I was in my morning meditation. The third ingredient on the list was apple puree. And when I make these bars I always make my own homemade, sugarfree apple puree the night before. Not last night I didn’t. Crap! What am I going to do now? The whole morning starts to …

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 – …

Relaxing the Body, Quieting the Mind A Vijnana Yoga Workshop by Dick & Cecilia

Relaxing the Body, Quieting the Mind

– A Vijnana Yoga Workshop by Dick & Cecilia Haarlem 17/9, 13.00 A relaxed body becomes stable and quite. A quiet mind can see, hear, feel, sense, understand on a totally different level than we are used to operating on in daily life. This quite mind and this stable body are actually one and the same, making both acting and reacting without clenching, without holding on, possible. Leaving you with immeasurable possibilities ;-). Come join us in this Vijnana Yoga workhop in Haarlem with Dick Langenberg and Cecilia Götherström, where we dive deep in to the first two principles of Vijnana Yoga – Relaxing the Body, Quieting the Mind.

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!

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 …

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 …
