The unity of body and consciousness
Currently I give yoga classes at companies and organizations on location or at other places where a yoga class is possible. And that is possible in more places than you think …..
In Oud-Beijerland I teach at the following locations:
- Hatha Yoga in Sports Center De Boogerd on Monday evening from 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm and on Tuesday morning from 10.00 am to 11.00 am. Costs are € 34.00 per month or € 12.50 for a single lesson;
- Business yoga at Tiofarma on Thursday evenings from 5.30 pm to 6.30 pm;
- Chair yoga in Care Center De Open Waard on Friday morning from 10.45 am to 11.45 am. Costs are € 9.00 per lesson.
I was educated at the Saswitha Training for Yoga and Philosophy in Bilthoven. Saswitha is the oldest yoga teacher training in the Netherlands and also the largest of all yoga courses that are recognized by the VYN (Association of Yoga teachers in the Netherlands).
Saswitha Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga, based on the unity of body and consciousness, where the breath forms the connection. The breath "carries" the movement and focuses the attention.
Yoga not only works on a physical level, but also has an effect on your mental well-being. It is a way to relax, to focus your attention inwardly, to reconnect with yourself (again) and to connect with your body and your feelings and to be aware of yourself "from within".
Yoga helps you find the way to understanding yourself. Yoga makes you aware of who you really are and what suits you and what doesn't suit you.
Yoga can be practiced by everyone, as long as you begin with your own physical abilities and respect them.
A yoga class consists of standing, sitting and lying postures and is concluded with a (lying) final relaxation. We do exercises to address all the movement options of the spine and joints. The exercises vary from 'subtle' to 'challenging' and can be adapted to everyone's capabilities. We are always looking for the right balance between relaxation and strength. Relaxation and breathing exercises are also part of the lesson.
