Yoga

Our yoga is based on the traditional hatha yoga, which consists mainly of non-moving exercises with great attention to breathing. The core of yoga nowadays is that the unity of body and spirit is found in a combination of breathing, physical exercise and concentration.

The exercises (Asanas) give strength and energy and provide an overall pleasant feeling of relaxation.

 

Our yoga classes contain asanas (exercises), meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises) and relaxation.

 

Qi Gong (Tai Chi)

Our classes are based on the Taoist Yin Yang philosophy and work with the universal life energy Qi. By means of slow, relaxed and conscious movements the capacity for internal harmony and balance is realized. Your body is gently and thoroughly practiced, your emotions are calmed down and your mind is brought back to a peaceful state of wholeness. As a result, the Qi flows powerful and unhindered through the body. We offer beginners class of 1 hour or we can offer a course of 6 hours in which you will learn Shibashi, a form of 18 movements.

 

Both Yoga & Qi Gong can be done in groups of 15 people class.

 

 

Mindfulness

During a mindfulness workshop, one will learn to shift attention to the 'here and now' and leave other things to what they are.

In this way, you can achieve some form of relaxation or discharge: in the head and in the rest of the body.

Our mindfulness workshops for up to 10 people.

 

Reiki

Reiki is a laying-on / off hands healing technique thousands of years old. It is thought to have originated from Tibetan Buddhists.

It is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be defined as spiritually guided life force energy. Reiki is a private treatment.
