Workshop Yoga & Nutrition – Sweet Surrender

Eva´z Yoga & Pilates, Herenweg 89, Heemstede Sunday 13/12 , 13.00 – 16.30 Mid December, and we find ourselves halfway towards Christmas – most likely already clogged up by great-fun-but-maybe-not-so-great-for-our-overall-health “kerst-borrels”, Christmas get-togethers in the shape of brunches, lunches, dinners and more next to stress building up for the holidays. The feeling of neither having enough time nor energy to fill up our energy-reserves with closing off the old year, planning the new year and fitting Christmas celebrations in between those two up ahead quite often leaves us feeling overwhelmed. There is no better occasion or reason than this to take a small time out, to step on the yoga mat, surrender to what your body and mind truly needs to charge, to re set and to step in to the light which the holiday season actually truly does bring!

Which is something I would not have dared to do some years ago 🙂 – but thank´s largely to all the cooking and nutritional events, workshops and course Stephi and I have given together I have ventured out of my comfort zone in many places.

In my heart of hearts I

In my heart of hearts I hear music sing to my soul In my heart of hearts I am music In my heart of hearts I spill in to the world of creation like a brittle waterfall, a whiskering wind, like a tone of love, of wildness, of quaking wisdom shivering out of my bones In my heart of hearts I know who I am In my heart of hearts I melt into the mother, become the father In my heart of hearts I am the speck of oneness, the soul who is the muse, the giver of joy, simultaneously In my heart of hearts, there is no stopping me, No boundaries, no beginning, no ending, in my heart of hearts In my heart of hearts I look deep into the brown-yellow eyes of the enormous white wolf in the mirror looking back at me, eyes full of tenderness, eyes full of knowing, soul full of worship In my heart of hearts I come home to who I am, to who I was, to who …
