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! In this workshop with the theme “Sweet Surrender” we will be guided to approach all the practices of yoga (meditation, breath, postures, relaxation) with openness. We will explore what it means to completely surrender the …

Nyheter : Yoga Nidra – djup avslappning – i Östersund 27/5

Yoga Nidra betyder “yogisk sömn”. Det är ett tillstånd av medveten djup sömn. När vi mediterar förblir vi i det vakna tillståndet av medvetandet där vi genom olika tekniker rensar ut mönster, reaktioner, känslor, bilder mm. I Yoga Nidra lämnar vi det vakna tillståndet, går förbi det drömmande tillståndet (dröm-sömnen) och tar oss i djupsömnen samtidigt som vi är alerta. Yoga Nidra har använts av yogis och visa människor i årtusenden för att kunna skapa frid på djupet, som komplement till meditation. De senaste årtionden används Yoga Nidra både på sjukhus och i arméer i de flesta av världens länder för att behandla stress symptom som bl.a högt blodtryck, ångest, PTSD mm. Yogalärare: Cecilia Götherström, Internationellt certifierad i Vijnana Yoga & Classical Yoga Tid : Fredag 30/1 , 18.00 – 19.30 Plats: Yogashala. Varmt välkomna!

News: Vijnana Yoga Workshop, Östersund, 22/11 2014

I denna, den första Vijnana Yoga workshopen någonsin i Sverige, kommer vi att fokusera på de två första av de “Seven Vital Principles Of Vijnana Yoga” – vilka är “Relaxing The Body”/ Låta kroppen slappna av och “Quieting The Mind”/ Stilla sinnet. En avslappnad kropp och ett stilla sinne innebär inte, som texten kanske kan låta, att vi är helt “slappa” utom snarare tvärtom – att vi hittar det stället där de delar av kroppen och sinnet som behöver vara aktiva och alerta är det och att de delar som inte behöver vara aktiva och alerta just nu “vilar”. Det är vårat egentliga naturliga tillstånd, vilket vi ofta leds bort från både genom våra egna tankar, planer och listor och stimulans och stress utifrån. I denna 3 timmar workshop kommer vi att utforska dessa två principer i sittande/meditation, pranayama/andningsövningar, yoga asanas/ yoga hållningar och i savasana/liggande avslappning. Vi kommer även att behandla en liten del filosofi, lite vetenskap om hjärnan och fysiologi och alla frågor och kommentarer är välkomna. Workshopen är öppen för alla nivåer. …

News / Workshop Vijnana Yoga, January 19th at Eva´z

Sunday 19th of Jan, 14.00 – 17.00, theme : Connecting Eva´z Yoga & Pilates, Herenweg 89, Heemstede Price : 35 euro pp In this workshop we will work on the principle of Connecting throughout the asana´s, the pranayama, in the mediation and even in savasana/the relaxation. Through Connecting we move as one body, we collect all the fragments together and focus through one mind, we breathe aligning the pranic body with the physical body in unison. In the sitting/meditation Connecting puts us on the path towards Oneness whether we are looking for the authentic yoga/union or “just” more peace of mind, enhanced wellbeing and the flow of creativity. We will work both with the western approach to anatomy and physiology in line with the eastern approach to the movement of energy throughout the body – to experience and discover the Connection between the two as well as being able to work with whichever approach fits you the best. Whether you are relatively new to yoga or have been on this part for quite some time …

News / Yoga Nidra, next week Friday @ Iyengar Yoga Haarlem

Next week Friday, January 10th, at 20.00, it is time for the monthly Yoga Nidra practice again which I guide at Iyengar Yoga Haarlem. I would love to welcome you all for this deeply relaxing practice. The lesson / practice is 1 hour and 15 minutes and costs are 10 euro’s. Yoga Nidra means “deep sleep”. It is an ancient practice that has been, and is still being, practiced by yogi´s since thousands of years as a compliment to mediation, asana and pranayama. In Yoga Nidra we go into a conscious deep sleep where we go through all the different layers of the mind and body into the deep stillness within. For the yogis since ancient times the practice has been used, and is being used, to clean up old samskara´s – old patterns, which are disturbing the stillness of the mind. In modern days the practice of Yoga Nidra is being used in several more places than in the complete yoga practices ; Army veterans suffering from PTSD are following Yoga Nidra as part …
