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 :- …

Chia Pudding

Chiapudding – yummy recipe

I have to admit that the first time I had a go at making the now oh-so-trendy Chia Pudding for the first time, the result was the same as that initial sip of shampoo you get down your throat as a kid when you don´t listen to your mum asking you to keep your eyes and mouth closed as she is washing your hair (aged 3 or so 😉 🙂 ). Totally not yum, or anything close to it. So I stayed off making any of these the-worlds-easiest-and-fastest-plus-superhealthy breakfasts for almost a year, savouring the tasty one´s I could get in cafés in Östersund, Göteborg, Köbenhavn, Haarlem, Heemstede, Amsterdam… Then a few weeks ago this recipe landed in our shopping cart – can´t remember if it was from Dekamarkt or AH, but anyway – it´s totally yum! Not a hint of shampoo taste, just total bliss. If you´d like to try it, here it is; Ingredients; 1 can full fat coconut milk 40 gr chia seeds 2 tbspns honey or maple syrup 1 tspn vanilla extract Half a mango …

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.

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.

Yoga & Nutrition workshop – theme Detox

May 21st, EVA´Z Yoga & Pilates, Heemstede Welcome to this new Yoga & Nutrition workshop at EVA´z Yoga & Pilates in Heemstede on Saturday May the 21st.   Detox is a word that has been and is being throw around in a lot of different directions and contexts over past years.To tell the truth, a lot of the time this awesome concept it is taken greatly out of it´s actual context, at other times it is completely misunderstood. Detoxification is a natural process in the body as well as in nature. 24/7 it goes on without us even realizing it most of the time. When we do realize the process exists is usually when something is out of whack ;-). How to optimize the enviroment for this natural process in our bodies, our minds and our surroundings, how to completely understand the way detoxification works as well as how it does not , that is what will be focusing on, experiencing and learning in this unique workshop. In a space where the science of yoga …

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 …
