    Online Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation Class - English - All Levels
    This Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation class is the perfect practice to release anxiety, rebalance the nervous system, invite calmness and stillness into the mind, surrender to what is and go within. Yin Yoga is a passive, meditative, slow-paced style of Yoga. The postures are mainly floor-based and are typically held for between 2-5 minutes, Physically, by holding the postures for this length we are able to access the deep connective tissue, targeting the fascia, tendons, and ligaments. Energetically, Yin Yoga improves the flow of energy (or chi) in the body. This helps to release blockages or stagnation in the meridian lines (energy centers taught in Chinese Medicine). Because the postures are held for a long period of time, breath awareness and mindfulness are large parts of Yin Yoga. As you hold the postures I will guide you through meditation, mindfulness and breathwork practices.

    Dance & Healing | The Transcendental Embodiment - Behind & Beyond
    Are you seeking life guidance through art, movement, and dance for emotional, psychological, and physical well-being? Welcome to the Transcendental Embodiment. I am here to support and guide you in your own process of discovering your inner healing power through: - chakras alignment, guided meditation, breathing exercises - self-expression & subjective experience through dance - expanding your heart space, emotional awareness, and healing in movement and dance - release of stress, judgment, and trapped emotions - grounding, self-care, resilience - and more... The sessions are tailored to the specific needs and capabilities of each individual. *Dance can be a practice of introspection, transformation, and transcendence of one’s subjective experiences into a worldwide journey." - Tiffany Mc Swaker * As a professional dancer, teacher, and performance maker I am introspectively processing each working day in consciousness, listening to my upcoming emotions, triggers, or anxiety when it comes to be physically and mentally performative in a team, or as a freelance artist. Instead of suppressing these emotions and creating energetical and mental blockages (that can end up into somatic pains or burn-out): we should pay more attention to these inner warning messages and strengthen our emotional intelligence to be able to cope with the infinitesimal external stimulus and daily-stress of our very fast lives. It can be challenging to sense with clarity what is the origin of some feelings of frustration, unsatisfaction, discomfort, or grief, and it can be intimidating or discouraging to walk alone on that path. This class helps you to commit to your better-being, presence to oneself countering wellness procrastination. * What do you need to feel lighter, brighter, or happier in your everyday life? * * What is your self-achievement potentiality? * - For who? : For anyone who enjoys movement and dance, and desires a better connection and understanding with their moving bodies. / ​One-to-one or group sessions. - ​Where? : Online via SKYPE or at the student's location. Values: Integrity, Transparency, Respect, Cooperation * About TTE : The Transcendental Embodiment (TTE) is the result of three years of research and development. Merging from a movement philosophy research entitled Behind & Beyond, to its phenomenological understanding. The metaphysical unity of the tangible and intangibles bodies expounds the undeniable relationships between those in the physical realm. The tangible body (the material vehicle), the intangibles bodies (psychological, emotional, energetical, and spiritual). As a dance healing practice, guiding the practitioner to conscious corporeality, and subjective emotional understanding, this methodology can also be a useful tool to improve artistry and technical skills on a deeper level, widening mindful creativity, awareness, empathy, and sensitivity. (TTE) movement and dance methodology combines a meditative approach in stillness and through movement, awakening the mind, spreading the awareness into different body parts; put a specific emphasis on improvisation skills, and musicality, following energy impulses and intuitive movement, increasing the flow of energy. Inviting the practitioners to practice resilience, non-self definition, non-judgment, self-care and self-love, integrity, and acceptance to overcome technical, physical, and mental limits holding the practitioner from his self-achievement potentiality. This approach builds itself crescendo on subjective movement reflexivity and introspective journey through the following process: ​ * The four steps: Being | Investigation | Exploration | Dedication Unconscious - Subconscious - Conscious - Transcendental Consciousness Feel free to contact me for any inquiries.

    Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Power Yoga - certified teacher.
    I teach Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative and Power Yoga. Lessons are available at all levels in English or Dutch. Yoga has done a lot for me, both physically and mentally. It is about much more than just exercise and would like to share this with others. I did my 200 hour yoga teacher training in Vinyasa and Ashtanga Yoga in Greece. In addition, I followed a 100-hour yoga teacher training in Yin Yoga in Utrecht. I would like to give my students a better understanding of why you are practicing a particular pose, its benefits for your body and mind, and the best way to get into the pose. My lessons are anything but superficial!

    Martyna
    Yoga for "Broken Backs" - yoga classes with medical doctor and yoga teacher
    The modern world is a hostile place for our bodies. Back in old days our ancestors had to walk, run and climb trees every day. They did not use chairs, nor cars, nor computers. They sat on the floor, they squatted down regularly. We tend to forget how new our civilisation is. And that it is not neccessarily what we were made for. Probably your work requires sitting for prolonged period of time. You either drive to work or work from home. As the amount of stress and tasks grow, your shoulders start to slouch. Slowly your back gets stiffer and your breath becomes shallow. As you sit, your back rounds and the head feels heavy. Your back hurts and your neck hurts. The back pain makes you move less. Then your back hurts even more. So you move even less. And so on. Like this little by little the qualtiy of your life drops. These classes will give you the tools to get out of this vicious circle and make your life better. The world is as it is. We can not suddenly just walk all day long. We still have to do our work, we still need to sit for prolonged periods of time. But still there is a lot to do! During yoga classes with me, you will learn how to sit correctly to keep your back safe effortlessly while you work. You will learn how to stand properly on your feet, so your body gets a stable base. You will learn how to lie down well to allow your body to rest. With various yoga poses you will strengthen your muscles and improve body alignement. You will learn how to open the chest and to breathe better. You will learn how to practise safely and effectively. And very importantly, you will also learn how body and mind influence each other. You will get the tools to calm down the restless mind and improve your quality of life. Yoga practice is a holistic practice. Therefore not only your back, but your whole body and mind will transform. Whether you have never tried yoga before (nor any other activity) or you are already an experienced yoga practitioner, all can benefit from learning and deepening this particular approach.

    Tarot reading for your well-being and to enlighten you
    My Tarot readings provide information for transformation and personal expression. By shuffling the cards I place the intention to connect with your energy and channel the information for advice and ideas. By my intentions, I share the information that I feel through the cards. I'm focusing on clarity, revealing underlying issues and blockages, and enlightening you. I firmly believe that the present, the past and the future all exist at the same time. Thus, I perceive future potentials, and emphasize that through the power of intentions and our dominant creative thoughts, results can be transformed. Nothing is set in stone. I believe that the Tarot is a powerful tool offering advice and information. Where there is vagueness, the Tarot brings clarity: where there is indecision, the Tarot reveals information to move forward with confidence. The Tarot captures the energy of your concerns and the situation, as you read, revealing relevant messages. The Tarot is a way to support you in your quest for transformation and personal expression.
